Explore the desert from Las Vegas to Los Angeles, with the Grand Canyon in between.
From the staggeringly fast pace of Las Vegas to the tranquillity of the Zion National Park, this trip journeys through some of the most incredible natural formations on the west coast. Walk amid the hoodoos in Bryce Canyon National Park, stand in awe at the Grand Canyon, ride horses through the canyons in Boulder Mountain, sit by a Navajo campfire in Monument Valley and enjoy the stark desert backdrop of Joshua Tree National Park. Finish this desert-flavoured adventure in style with a night in the ‘City of Angels’, where you can shop on Rodeo Drive (or try to spot a Kardashian) in Los Angeles.
From flashy Las Vegas to the red cliffs of Zion National Park and the distinctive hoodoos of Bryce Canyon, discover a huge diversity of American landscapes in a relatively short amount of time
Far from the bright lights of the city, Boulder Mountain Guest Ranch offers magical views of the night sky and a tranquil retreat from the rest of the world. Enjoy two nights of comfort, hospitality and delicious home-cooked food on the ranch
Due to popular demand, see the mountains, cactus gardens and lush oases of Joshua Tree National Park. As you'll be staying nearby, there's plenty of time to explore the area without feeling rushed
Discover Utah's iconic Monument Valley by jeep and then share stories and a meal by the campfire with members of the largest tribe in the USA, the Navajo
You'll spend two nights in the spectacular Grand Canyon so there's enough time to explore properly. See the canyon up close on a variety of hikes or take a helicopter flight overhead
The regions visited on this trip can experience extremes in weather and temperature. Bryce Canyon is deceptively unpredictable and can drop in temperature to the point of snow flurries, while Zion National Park down the road is generally hot and sunny. Please be prepared for all weather conditions, especially if travelling outside of the July/August summer months. Bring layers of warm clothing and sun protection and ensure you drink plenty of water.
The accommodation at Boulder Mountain Guest Ranch is mixed. Some of the group may stay in the main house, while others might be in cabins outside or even in a teepee. A small number of rooms also have outdoor bathrooms.
As you'll be travelling in a van with a full group of people and their luggage, conditions can feel quite cramped. This is all part of the adventure, however, and you may even meet some long-term friends.

We really loved the National Parks Explorer trip. It gave us the opportunity to cover big distances without the hassle of driving. We loved seeing so many parks each of which were unique and wonderful.
