The United States Southwest is a mecca of desert vistas, decorated with vibrant sandstone canyons, cliffs and rock formations. On this 8 day tour, let your guide take you to some of the most incredible places this stunning part of the country has to offer.
Journey from the neon lit city of Las Vegas into Native American lands and the incredible Zion, Bryce Canyon and Grand Canyon National Parks. Along the way, you’ll get to experience intriguing tours of these magical areas and take to many a hiking trail, getting into the heart of the landscapes, and spending your nights in comfortable hotels.
Experience the vibrant atmosphere and dazzling lights of Las Vegas, enjoying all the luxurious delights it has to offer, then set off on a journey across some of the country’s most amazing geological areas; seemingly desolate but full of magic. Explore the cliffs, canyons and valleys of Zion National Park, then head to Bryce Canyon National Park to marvel at its mysterious sandstone hoodoos. Continue your journey into Navajo Nation, stopping to learn the secrets of the incredible Monument Valley on a guided tour, then brace yourself for the unbelievable sight of the Grand Canyon. Here, you might just end up spending hours marvelling at the powerful Colorado River snaking its way through the landscape, and the other-wordly canyon walls. Before you head back to glittering Las Vegas, where it all started just a week ago, you’ll make one last stop at Seligman, the very place that began the iconic Route 66.
