  • Day 1-2: Los Angeles & San Diego

    Kick starting our epic cross country American road trip in the 'City of Angeles' we hit Hollywood Boulevard for a stroll down the Walk of Fame and photo of the gigantic Hollywood sign. Next up we sink our toes into the warm California sand and see the colourful people strut their stuff before heading down the coast to San Diego on day one. This city is all about the beach: bronzed bodies, big shades and baggy shorts. Wow fellow beachgoers on your surfboard or let the world-famous San Diego Zoo steal the limelight. As the sun goes down the music starts playing so dust off those glad-rags and head out dancing.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 3-4: Las Vegas

    Next, Las Vegas - the greatest show on earth! The Strip, the shows, the casinos, the clubs; Sin City's glitziest and brashest spots are sure to impress as you cruise the Las Vegas Boulevard on an optional limo ride! Hop onto one of the world's highest thrill rides at Vegas' Stratosphere and it won't just be your head that's spinning. And if that's not enough, take a helicopter flight down The Strip, see the free lightshow at the Fremont Experience or just gamble the night away in one of the world class casinos.
    Accommodation: Hotel included

  • Day 5: Zion National Park

    Zion National Park provides your first fix of top-notch trails and the chance to really stretch your legs for rewarding views. Swim and explore the hidden canyons or maybe hike to the top at Angels Landing for incredible views of the valley below; also doubles as an excellent lunch stop as you admire the views around you and see condors circle. Okay, so getting up there can be devilish at times, but the famous trail puts on a 360-degree display of this magnificent national park.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 6-7: Bryce Canyon National Park & Lake Powell

    Bryce is next with its knobbly hoodoos striking their crazy poses as your camera clicks away at a perfect sunset. What's a hoodoo when it's at home? Actually, Hoodoos are weird and wonderful rock spires arranged in rows as far as the eye can see. They will leave you searching for your own way to describe this 'indescribable' place. Now it's time for some stunning R&R, basking in the clear blue waters of Lake Powell ringed by deep red rock. Swim, horse-ride in the desert or just sit back on the shore and soak up the powerful rays of this beautiful and surreal man-made desert oasis.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 8-9: Grand Canyon National Park

    Today we visit the stunning view at Horseshoe bend before we come face to face with the most awe-inspiring national park of them all, the Grand Canyon. Nothing you have ever seen before will prepare you for this spectacular site! With two days at the park you have time to hike the rim trails looking down into the canyon floor, as well as hit the snaking trails down into the belly of the canyon to Plateau Point for incredible views of the Colorado River. If this isn't enough to leave you open-jawed, why not take a helicopter flight above it all and marvel at the brilliant colours. One thing's for sure though, this place looks incredible from any angle, especially walking along the rim at sunset or sunrise.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 10: Monument Valley

    Navajo legends rise from crimson flats at Monument Valley. The only things to pre-date the origins of Native American culture are the massive towering rock formations which dominate the awe-inspiring landscape. Take the opportunity to experience it close-up with an optional Navajo guided 4x4 ride before setting up camp on the edge of Monument Valley. What a place to swap campfire stories and songs. Monument Valley isn't America's most photographed monument without good reason.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 11-13: Arches National Park & Colorado Rocky Mountains

    Arches - the park's name says it all. Some 2,000 orange sandstone arches strike their poses. The scenery here is breath-taking and a sunset stroll to Delicate Arch tops most 'to do' lists. Take on the famous "Slick Rock" mountain bike trail, float down the Colorado on a scenic rafting trip or tackle the terrain high above on a guided jeep tour. Your leader will take you to the impressive Dead Horse Point State Park for iconic views of the Colorado River snaking through the canyons below. Next, distant peaks sport snowy caps and pines huddle together as you pit yourself against amazing hiking and biking trails in the Rockies.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 14-15: Mesa Verde National Park & Sante Fe

    Explore the ancient dwellings of Ancestral Pueblans cut into the cliff face in Mesa Verde National Park on an optional ranger led hike; viewings are highly recommended! Next, soak up the artsy vibe high up in the desert foothills, in one of the oldest US cities, Santa Fe. We visit Canyon Road, home to art galleries, cultural treasures (hand-woven Navajo rugs and south western wood carvings), historic adobe buildings, vibrant restaurants and generally quite a colourful place to explore.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 16: Carlsbad Caverns National Park

    Check out the International UFO Museum and Research Centre (and gift shop!) in Roswell! They say Aliens crashed to Earth and they have proof! Then onto Carlsbad Caverns National Park. Do you know your stalactite from your stalagmite? Carlsbad Caverns is one of the largest cave systems in the world and boasts over 100 limestone caves sporting bizarre rock formations. In the evening you have the option to return to the park and see the flight of the bats; did you know when bats fly out of a cave they always turn left?
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 17-20: West Texas & San Antonio

    Don your Stetson and toast marshmallows as the Lone Star bids you a big-hearted welcome for four nights in the mighty Texas. The second biggest of the states has plenty of oil, cowboys and southern hospitality. Feel that tumbleweed vibe at the Alamo in San Antonio and don't forget to check out the Buckhorn Saloon and Museum, crammed with cowboy curiosities.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 21-22: New Orleans

    Now we're talking all that jazz! We head into the enchanting French Quarter of New Orleans! Hear the real deal at Preservation Hall, echoing with chirpy trumpet and smooth sax or sample a Hurricane at Pat O'Brien's! New Orleans has more than just food, drink and music to offer. Do the Huckleberry Finn thing as you chug along the Mississippi River. Then look for gators on an included Louisiana swamp tour through the mysterious bayous of Cajun country. Every music fan should make the pilgrimage to New Orleans at least one time in their life! For something different, why not opt for the Voodoo and Graveyard tour with a visit to Marie Laveaus House of Voodoo.
    Accommodation: Hotel included

  • Day 23-24: Panama City Beach

    Dream of lazy beach days or windsurf and jet ski the afternoon away. The heat of the beach simmers beyond sundown in this undisputed good-time town. Pack dancing shoes with your flip-flops as the party spirit simmers far into the small hours at the hippest, hottest haunts of the Gulf Coast.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 25-26: Orlando

    It's not far from strip malls and souvenir shops to the Magic Kingdom. Escape from it all with an optional day at Universal Studios or Disneyworld. Forget your age; it makes a big kid of one and all. Who wants to grow up anyhow?
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 27-28: Florida Keys

    Over Key lime pie, admire a crimson sunset and swap tales from teeming reefs, before celebrating with a sunset party! Your leader will take you on a walking tour finishing at Ernest Hemmingway's former house and now a museum where you have the option to visit. There are endless water based activities during the day or you can simply relax on the beach, but once the sun dips Key West comes alive as a party town. Mallory Square is a great meeting place to wander around at sunset and try conch fritters.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 29-30: Miami & St Augustine

    SoBe (aka South Beach) has it all! Stroll the art deco seafront or pose with the beautiful people on sugary sand and in ultra-cool nightspots. Magnificent Miami beckons with miles of white beaches and palm trees swaying in the breeze. Then move on to soak up the Spanish vibe of the Sunshine State old timer, St Augustine.
    Accommodation: Miami hostel & camping included

  • Day 31-32: Charleston & Carolinas

    Historic Charleston is next. This place oozes old world charm, especially the gaudy mid-1700 houses of Rainbow Row. Then mountain views morph into swamps, plantations and palmetto palms in the Carolinas, time to enjoy a cozy campfire.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 33-34: Washington D.C

    Washington D.C. is the social, cultural and political history of the United States. Explore D.C.'s parks by day and monuments by night. Explore the best of America's Capitol - from the Smithsonian Museum to the Lincoln Memorial on a self-guided tour of Washington's illuminated monuments. During the day the city is awash with greenery, so once you're done with sightseeing, go people watching in the parks or take advantage of the great nightlife in Georgetown! A great way to see the city is to explore by bike at your own pace.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 35-36: Philadelphia & New York Area

    Leaving the nations' capitol behind we travel onto Philadelphia where we have the chance to break a sweat climbing up the famous 'Rocky' steps, see the symbol of American independence the Liberty Bell and be amazed by Independence Hall. It was here that brave men gathered at the Pennsylvania State House and defied the King of England, an event which helped shape the U.S. Constitution and eventually created one unified nation. Why not hit the Reading Terminal Market to sample everything on offer or opt to tuck into a Philly cheese steak lunch. Then it's off to New York Area where we have the next two nights to explore New York City. Splurge along Fifth Ave, hit the top of the Empire State Building, or soak up the trendy, laidback vibe of Greenwich Village before heading back out west.
    Accommodation: Hotel included

  • Day 37: Niagara Falls

    From the New York area to the edge of Lake Ontario, the sensation of crashing water is stupendous, the noise immense, at America's greatest national attractions, Niagara Falls. Wait 'til until you're down on the water aboard the included 'Maid of the Mist' cruise, where the cascades pound, churn and foam right before your eyes. That's what you call a front row seat! Your leader will take you back to the falls at night where the light show reveals the falls in a very different light.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 38: Ohio

    Ask a "Buckeye" to tell you all about their state nut or how cool they think Cedar Point Amusement Park's rollercoasters are! Ride the Millennium Force - the greatest roller coaster in the world!
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 39-40: Shipshewana & Chicago

    Our next stop is a visit to the Amish community in Shipshewana who maintain a more traditional way of life, and in some cases without electricity, cars and travelling by horse and cart. From here we make a brief stop to Gary, Indiana for a photo of the house that Michael Jackson grew up in, before arriving to Chicago - the "Windy City", home to some of the greatest blues music in America. Soar up Willis Tower for dizzying views over the Windy City. Trawl the upmarket malls of Magnificent Mile and grab a slice of Chicago's deep-dish pizza before taking to peddle power on the famous "Bobby's Bike Hike" tour (optional).
    Accommodation: Hostel included

  • Day 41-42: South Dakota & Badlands National Park

    Head out across the great prairies and America's original western frontier. We pass though Wisconsin, the American home of cheese where your leader will introduce a taste of Wisconsin into your meals. We also make visits to the famous Jolly Green Giant Statue in Blue Earth before settling in for the night. Resident coyotes may utter the occasional howl as you settle back for some shut-eye under canvas. Then never mind the "bad lands", touching down here feels like a moon landing. Low-slung buttes, chiselled spires and saw-tooth ridges have a bizarre lunar quality as you swap some photos. En route we enjoy a visit to Wal-Drug, so large you need a map to wander around for that 'only in America' experience.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 43-44: Mount Rushmore & Cody, Wyoming

    You'll agree with the Lakota people; from afar the pine-coated hills do appear black. Mount Rushmore's next and the uniquely sculptured faces of our four greatest Presidents. Close by, another rock-carved epic is shaping up: the Crazy Horse monument, a nod to the famed Lakota Indian war leader, very impressive! Next, it's into Wild Wyoming, the heart of cowboy country, and this is what Cody is all about. Named after William Cody (aka Buffalo Bill), the old west is alive and literally kicking here. After all, "Cody is rodeo", with nightly summer shows.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 45-46: Yellowstone National Park

    Pitch up in the world's first National Park, Yellowstone. This is a superb wilderness of spouting geysers, waterfalls and simmering mud pools. A-grade American stars grace the trails - keep your eyes peeled for this abundant wildlife. Large herds of bison and elk roam the park and if you're lucky, you may even see bear or wolf. Yellowstone is a park so varied in its offering and it will leave you open-jawed as you see lush valleys, bubbling geysers including Old Faithful, petrified forests and towering waterfalls. Yellowstone ticks all the boxes!
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 47-49: Montana & Glacier National Park

    Montana is often referred to as 'Big Sky Country' because of its numerous stars, but it is also a trekkers' paradise. With two days in Glacier, you'll have plenty of time to explore the alpine meadows, snow-streaked cliffs and shimmering lakes. This area sure adds a healthy dose of the wow factor. Glacier is well-known for the high chances to see black bear, and the incredible walking trails which are blessed with wild flowers in the spring and incredible vistas.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 50-51: Banff National Park

    Explore show-stopping trails with picturesque switchbacks, chiselled canyons and mirrored lakes, and even hover above by helicopter for a bird's-eye view. One dunk in the hot springs and a drink or two later, you'll be sleeping like a log.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 52-53: Lake Louise & British Columbia

    A nickname like the "gem of the Rockies" is a lot to live up to, but it's no sweat for Lake Louise. The imposing chateau looks on as mountains cluster round the turquoise surface. As for you, well, you could always hike out to the Plain-of-Six-Glaciers or inspect the scene by paddle power on an optional canoe trip. Heading through BC, appreciate the mirrored lakes, grizzled peaks and spectacular scenery as dark conifers and shadowy summits drift by.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 54: Vancouver

    Along the highway, prime vistas escort you right into Vancouver. With its stunning combination of mountains and coastline, the city boasts outstanding views. Take to Stanley Park on two wheels, then regain your inner city slicker around A-grade museums and galleries or bustling Granville Market. Why not check out the city nightlife in Gas Town or the eclectic "Robsonstrasse" tonight.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 55: Seattle

    Beam yourself up! A beautiful green city and former home of the singer Kurt Cobain there is loads to fill your time. Take the glass-fronted elevator up the iconic Space Needle and gaze out over the Puget Sound, visit Pike market where you can see market stall holders 'toss the Pike fish', visit chewing gum alley, or hit the nightlife which Seattle has come to be known for. It is also the founding city of Starbuck's coffee but be prepared to queue.
    Accommodation: Hostel included

  • Day 56: Florence, Oregon Coast

    The Florence Oregon Coast is the perfect place for relaxation and fun. You'll find beautiful evergreen forests, the sparkling Pacific Ocean and towering dunes for you to spend time climbing and rolling down. Take time out swimming and having fun in the Oregon sunshine

  • Day 57-58: Redwood National Park

    You will amazed to walk amongst the towering forest giants of Redwood National Park - home to the tallest trees in the world and some of the most spectacular coastal scenery on the Pacific Coast.

    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 59-60: San Francisco

    Next, "Everybody's Favourite City", San Francisco. This town will blow you away. Sunlight on the bay, wispy fog around Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars climbing steep streets: it's a 24-carat stunner. Included is a tour of San Francisco visiting Golden gate Bridge with the chance to walk across, followed up by a visit to Haight-Ashbury which inspired a generation of hippies and some of the best music from the 1960's and 70's. Maybe view the Bay and Alcatraz on an optional sunset sailboat cruise, then the party people can flock to trendy bars and clubs in North Beach or Haight-Ashbury and that friendly vibe gets even better.
    Accommodation: Hotel included

  • Day 61-62: Yosemite National Park

    Heading east through California's gold country we continue our scenic drive into the Yosemite National Park region with the chance to hike or bike, through the extraordinary landscape of glacier-carved granite monoliths and spectacular waterfalls. Either way, this park rocks! Once deep inside Yosemite, keep your eyes peeled for black bears. Coyote roam freely as well and when the sun goes down, their howling often echoes amidst pines and Giant Sequoias. Admit it, this is what clicks the spirit of the great outdoors up a notch or two.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 63: Monterey & Big Sur

    Travelling further down the California coastline we reach the city of Monterey where your leader takes you on a guided tour on one of the coastal trails with the chance to see whales and sea lions who frequent the area between April and October. Monterey is a great city to dust off your last clean clothes and head out to explore the city after dark.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 64: Santa Barbara & Los Angeles

    From coastal California to Hollywood, its hill-perched sign waits as you embark on one final fling with this incredible and diverse continent to the 'City of Angeles'.
