About United States

Utah, Nevada & California Summary

Add to Shortlist

Day 1 Las Vegas

Discover Nevada's one and only 'Sin City' – Las Vegas. Perhaps arrive early and soak up the sights and sounds of this fantasy land of brightly lit casinos, booty-shaking nightspots and all-you-can-eat buffets.

Day 2 Zion National Park

Blaze a trail through the gorges and canyons of Zion National Park, a spectacular collection of sandstone cliffs and rocky ridges that conceal hanging gardens and tranquil pools. With plenty of free time to seek out Zion's hidden treasures, strap on some hiking boots and get ready to explore.

Day 3 Bryce Canyon National Park

Head deeper into central Utah and make a beeline for the spindly rock spires of Bryce Canyon National Park. Branch out on foot and follow the many hiking trails through this unique setting and watch as the park's stunning, sculpted rock formations – known as hoodoos – are gradually turned into a kaleidoscope of colours by the setting sun.

Days 4-5 Moab

This mecca for hikers, mountain bikers and rafters isn’t short on activities. Seek out an adrenaline hit or join a hike out to Arches National Park.

Day 6 Monument Valley

Be welcomed to one of the largest Native American reservations in the United States by the sandstone Goliath's of Monument Valley, and see why so many movie directors have chosen this lunar landscape as a stand-in for alien worlds. Spend some time learning about Navajo culture, watch as the sun paints the landscape with shades of gold and sleep under the vast desert sky.

Day 7 Lake Powell

With a dramatic backdrop of blood-red rock, Lake Powell's canyons and waterways are perfect for discovering idyllic hidden coves.

Days 8-9 Las Vegas

Head back to Las Vegas. Enjoy an optional limo ride or head out to explore the many delights of this bizarre desert city.

Day 10 Death Valley

Brave the scolding desert heat of Death Valley and, after sweating it out a little, come to terms with one of the United States' most unique ecosystems. If the conditions are favourable, take a small walk onto the sand to see how life manages to survive among the inhospitable terrain.

Days 11-12 Yosemite National Park

It might be a little tough to pronounce at first, but Yosemite is arguably the United States' premier national park. From the giant granite domes to the gushing waterfalls that feed the stunning forests and lakes below, Yosemite will take your breath away at every turn. Enjoy free time in the park to tackle some of the hiking trails, hire bikes or just bliss out at the tranquil surrounds of Mirror Lake.

Days 13-14 San Francisco

Be romanced by the incredible Bay Area, including its crown jewel – the progressive and popular city of San Francisco. Time-permitting, consider sticking around for a few days after the trip's end to check out some of this great city's other attractions.
