  • Day 1-2: Las Vegas & Grand Canyon 24/25 Dec

    Leaving the bright lights of Las Vegas behind, today will define the word `road trip' as you cruise down the original Route 66, formally the main road in the USA for cross country road trips. You'll stop off at the iconic sights such as the quirky town of Seligman which sits frozen in time and has tons of shops full of Americana memorabilia. It's now time for the main event, the mighty Grand Canyon National Park. Nothing you have ever seen before will prepare you for this spectacular sight, it will simply blow your socks off. Christmas at the Grand Canyon is a fairy-tale setting for the holiday celebrations and you'll be full of festive cheer as you lay eyes on the ornately decorated 20-foot-tall Christmas tree rising above the mezzanine level at El Tovar Hotel lobby and the roaring fire at Bright Angel Lodge. With cool daytime temperatures, the winter season really is one of the best times to visit this desert phenomenon. Hike into the canyon itself or enjoy a "bird's eye view" of one of the World's best natural wonders from an optional scenic helicopter flight.
    Accommodation: Hotel included

  • Day 3: Monument Valley 26 Dec

    On the road again and off to one of North America's most iconic landscapes, used as the set for countless Western movies, including the recent remake of The Lone Ranger. Immerse yourself in the native culture on an optional guided jeep tour of the Navajo Reservation and find out for yourself why this place is the most photographed place in America.
    Accommodation: Hotel included

  • Day 4-5: Moab & Arches National Park 27/28 Dec

    With some 2,000 gravity defying sandstone arches striking a pose, Utah's undisputed adventure capital guarantees non-stop fun. With two days here you'll have plenty of time to explore this incredible place. Take a sunset stroll and watch as the sun sets over Delicate Arch or for the action lovers, hire a mountain bike for some adrenalin pumping cycling along Moab's slick rock path. For the ultimate adventure head off-road on an optional 'Hummer tour' that climb high into the hills offering spectacular views of the La Sal mountain range and valley below.
    Accommodation: Hotel included

  • Day 6: Western Ranch 29 Dec (2014 departure)

    Our high country western ranch provides a taste of the real cowboy life with a ranch house stay and home-cooked meals all included. Ride the range on horseback and try your hand at roping. Yee-haw!
    Accommodation: Western ranch included & evening meal

  • Day 6: Bryce Canyon National Park 29 Dec (2015 departure)

    If you want more awesome rock formations to gawk at then you're definitely in the right place. Famed for its hoodoos, you're in Bryce Canyon National Park. You're probably thinking "What's a hoodoo when it's at home?" Actually, hoodoos are weird and wonderful rock spires arranged in rows. "Mysterious", "breath-taking" and "out of this world" are only a few of the descriptions offered by past visitors to Bryce Canyon National Park. Native Americans believe these crazy shapes to be `Legend People' who were turned to stone for their sins, but we'll let you decide. For close up views you'll have plenty of time to take advantage of the park's incredible system of trails. Wherever you walk, you will encounter a kaleidoscope of colours and a fantasy land of rock spires that will leave you searching for your own way to describe this 'indescribable' place, and because this is a winter trip, just imagine all of that with a sprinkling of snow, just magical!
    Accommodation: Budget Lodging included

  • Day 7: Zion National Park 30 Dec

    Onto Zion National Park, where a desert oasis is transformed by a blanket of snow. Here the warm winter tem-peratures are perfect for exploring the canyon without the summer crowds. For the best views in the park hike to the famous Angels Landing which offers 360 degrees of the entire park (subject to weather conditions) or try the short walk to 'Emerald Pools'.
    Accommodation: Hotel included

  • Day 8-9: Las Vegas 31 Dec - 01 Jan

    Rolling into Las Vegas on a natural high, kick off those boots and throw on your glad rags. If there is one city that knows how to party it's Vegas Baby, so if you're looking for the one New Year's Eve party you'll remember for the rest of your life, look no further. The Strip fills with revellers, fireworks explode over iconic hotels, the casinos and nightclubs are packed, the showrooms are filled with A-list entertainers and Vegas is more gloriously alive than you could ever imagine. New Year's Eve in Las Vegas is truly a world-class celebration. Keep the party rolling right on through with a private limousine tour of The Strip on New Year's Day (2014 only).
    Accommodation: Hotel included
