What's included in this trip
NEW! Self Drive Adventure. Southwest Loop - Economy Car SummaryAdd to Shortlist
To witness the roll of the dice, the brightness of the lights and the general ostentatiousness of Las Vegas is a quintessential American experience.
Zion National Park showcases soaring canyons, impressive hiking trails and beautiful waterways, all coloured by the mesmerising pink-, red- and white-hued rocks that the park is famous for.
A natural amphitheatre formed by centuries of erosion, Bryce Canyon National Park is filled with hoodoos - dramatic rock spires that glow red, orange and white in the glaring sun.
Controversially created in the 1960s, Lake Powell is now a popular holiday destination, consisting of 96 water-filled canyons, 3,150 km of shoreline and endless red-hued canyon walls.
Red-hued sandstone buttes rise strikingly from the earth in Monument Valley, the setting of many a western and home to the Navajo Nation Reservation.
Words don't do justice to the Grand Canyon, a stunning 1.5 km deep gorge formed by over six million years of erosion from the Colorado River.
Otherwise known as Sin City, Las Vegas is all about its lavish casinos, which dazzle and entice with flashy interiors, big-name entertainment and all-you-can-eat buffets.
