Our routes have been carefully chosen to include the best overnight stops, highlights and included experiences, with plenty of optional activities to choose from. No two Trek trips are the same, with stops at some of your tour leader's favourite places and occasional changes to the itinerary, so get ready for one awesome adventure!

As this tour departs at 07:30 hrs we recommend that you book pre tour accommodation. Please request further details at time of booking.


2019 Itinerary

Kick-start your West Coast adventure by crossing the Mojave Desert. Make a beeline for the hottest, driest and lowest place in America - Death Valley National Park. Without the blistering heat of the extreme summer temperatures, this is a real winter treat. Your camera will lap up sights like Zabriskie Point, Artist's Palette (a giant egg-box of turquoise, orange and red mineral deposits), and the immense perspectives of Dante's View, which is a perfect view indeed!


Camping included

Get ready for the city of excess: Las Vegas. Night life, high life, Vegas has it all! Feel like a star on an included party bus ride along the Las Vegas Strip, under the glare of the city's neon lights. Shows and top nightclubs make this a true 'city that never sleeps'. Check out the displays from the glitzy resort hotels which all try to outdo each other, jump on a roller coaster, or treat yourself to an all-you-can-eat buffet. For an interesting view of Vegas, why not fly high above the glitzy buildings on an evening flight along The Strip? You’ll even have a great time just people watching; Vegas is certainly full of interesting characters!


Hotel included


Paid locally

Optional Activities

Clubs & casino shows from US$10
VIP club tour (includes 4 clubs & limo) US$100
Roller coasters US$25-$40
Helicopter flight US$124
Get married in Las Vegas (not legally binding) US$220
Gun range US$20-$100

Departing the bright lights of Vegas, travel a section of the original Route 66 and stop in the town of Seligman to experience Americana at its very best! This town feels like a living museum where time has stood still and a visit to the Snow Cap Diner is always a fab treat. Try the super-thick milkshakes! Now admire an incredible masterpiece crafted by nature: the Grand Canyon. Tread the Bright Angel Trail to Indian Gardens, or venture to Plateau Point. Better yet, take a helicopter flight (highly recommended) for a bird's-eye view and marvel at the brilliant colours. The canyon depths are nothing short of mind-blowing and the first time you cast your eyes into the belly of the canyon, the image will stay with you forever! Make sure you get up early to see the sunrise as it changes the colours of the rocks, and you'll have the canyon almost to yourself!


Hotel included


Paid locally

Optional Activities

Helicopter flight US$254-$284
IMAX Theater US$15

Head for our Wild West Cowboy Camp at Betty & Rusty's! This is a unique experience you're going to love. Opt to mount a trusty steed and trot between the iconic Saguaro Cact, which tower as high as 6 metres. With their familiar curved arms, they're a sure sign you're definitely in the Wild West! Fresh from the saddle, tuck into an authentic chuckwagon dinner (a mobile cookhouse) before a night under a million desert stars.


Camping included

Optional Activities

Western horseback riding US$70

A road trip just isn't a road trip without miles and miles of cactus-studded desert and sun-drenched Arizona doesn't disappoint. The Sonora Desert is one of the largest and hottest deserts in North America (stretching from the USA into Mexico), and can fluctuate between dry and arid to lush and green. It's certainly a sight to behold so get your camera ready for the perfect picture of the rolling sand dunes.


Camping included

Next up is San Diego. With mild temperatures all year round, this Californian coastal city is where it's at. Rollerblade or hang out with the surfers on Mission Beach, feast on a tasty mahi-mahi taco, cycle Balboa Park or meet the residents of the world-famous San Diego Zoo. At night, why not head to the Gaslamp Quarter for an evening of fun and live music.


Camping included

From laid-back San Diego, to in-your-face Los Angeles! You'll visit eclectic Venice Beach for some ultimate people watching; see the muscle-clad locals strut their stuff on the sand under the Californian sunshine. Venice Beach is like a carnival running all year round...with free admission! Add on a few more days after your tour to really explore more of the city's attractions, from Universal Studios to Santa Monica Pier, or add on a city tour to discover the famous LA neighbourhoods with a local guide.
