Itinerary

Submit to the charms of ‘Sin City’, an oasis of modernity in the heart of the harsh Nevada desert. Renowned for its casinos and live entertainment, Las Vegas also serves as a great base for exploring the surrounding National Parks and landmarks.
Leave the neon jungle of Vegas behind and make tracks for the serenity of Zion. Peek around sandstone cliffs and take a dip in the many emerald pools that lay hidden in the rocks.
Be blown away by the natural amphitheatre of Bryce Canyon, an intriguing collection of sandstone spires that cast shadows over the canyon floor. See these peculiar formations from above or trek into the canyon to see them up close.
See why man-made Lake Powell is one of the USA’s most popular holiday destinations. Observe the captivating mix of deep-blue waters and hot desert sands on a boat ride, or simply relax on the shores of the lake.
Make the journey to Monument Valley, the home of the native Navajo people. On the way, perhaps detour to bizarre Mexican Hat, a town named after its unmistakable sombrero rock formation. Feel as though you are walking on the surface of another planet as you watch the sun create spectacular shadows over Monument Valley - a truly iconic US landscape.
Cross into Arizona, the ‘Canyon State’ and head for the Grand Canyon. Spend two days exploring this incredible natural wonder. Look into the canyon from the famous South Rim observatory, take an optional scenic flight or hike one of the many trails that run deep into the canyon.
Make your way back to civilisation and end the road trip in electric Las Vegas. Take a final spin of the roulette wheel, stock up on some novelty souvenirs or slip out of the city and head for the Valley of Fire State Park.
