Why you'll love this trip
  • From flashy Las Vegas to the arid desert of Zion National Park and the hoodoos of Bryce Canyon, you will discover a range of American landscapes at your own pace.
  • Admire the oasis of Emerald Pools during a hike past waterfalls and lush vegetation in Utah’s Zion National Park.
  • Ride a jeep through Utah's iconic Monument Valley, and then share stories and a meal by the campfire with members of Navajo Nation.
  • Be amazed by the size and beauty of the Colorado River’s Horseshoe Bend, then travel to the Grand Canyon where you’ll be left gobsmacked by its steep red-rock escarpments and gorges.
  • Explore a city that’s home to dreamers, fortune seekers, and celebrities in the City of Angels: Los Angeles.

Is this trip right for you?
  • Less time spent in a vehicle; more time to explore each destination. This trip has been carefully designed to give you the best experience of a region by reducing the number of one-night-only stops, giving you extra time in the places that matter.
  • This trip includes time spent travelling in a private vehicle with your group. Extra space can be tight, and conditions may feel a little cramped. It’s all part of the adventure and a great way to get to know your fellow travellers. Please read the itinerary carefully for travel time estimates.
  • From the boardwalks at Venice Beach to the strenuous hike up Angels Landing, this trip can involve a lot of walking. Please ensure you bring sturdy walking shoes and comfortable clothes. To make the most of the trip, it's best if you have at least a moderate level of fitness.
  • 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.

An exhilarating adventure! This tour offers a fantastic selection of hikes & scenery in the National Parks (Bryce Canyon & Monument Valley by Jeep were my favourite). Our tour leader Matt was exceptional. As a lone female traveller from the UK, I felt very safe. Totally recommend!

A really well thought out tour with some must see scenery, I thought that the guide (Matt) we had was fantastic and helped build a family feel to the group immediately. Matt showed some extensive knowledge of the areas we visited; the cultures and state rules which made us all feel comfortable! I wouldn’t hesitate booking another trip with Intrepid!

If you’re debating booking a group tour, or figuring it all out yourself- book the group tour!! This tour eliminated any stress I had about where to stay, how to get there, where the restrooms were along the way (it’s not important until you have to go!), the places to see and things you can skip. There’s plenty of free time to explore as you wish, while having the guided tours along the way. You learn so much from your guide/leader and to see the amount of people not a part of your group, listening in to your leader or asking them where to go and what to see just goes to show how much your guide really handles for you so you can have a stress-free, enjoyable trip! Book the group tour and have fun!
