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, 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 day and a night in Los Angeles, where you can grab a much-deserved coffee at the Original Farmers Market and wander the Santa Monica Pier for a dose of sea and eccentricity.
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

Be left speechless by the rivers, steep red-rock escarpments and, of course, the eponymous gorge of the Grand Canyon National Park. Don’t worry if you’re too stunned to do anything but stare at first –you’ve got two days here so there's enough time to explore properly
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.
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.

The national parks of the US are well worth visiting. Grand Canyon is spectacular and worth a few days to look around. The parks I visited were all so different from each other. I encourage travellers to minimise what you take in your luggage. I thought I only had what I needed but still had too much. I’ve heard many people say this and it is TRUE.
