Start your Journey
A glimmering emerald city rising out of the Nevada desert, Vegas attracts millions of visitors every year for very good reason. This is the premier city for the perfect blend of luxury and of no-holds barred pleasure, a premier wedding and honeymoon location, a sparkling platform from which to explore the most incredible national parks and of course, the quintessential stag destination. For a city founded in 1905 Las Vegas has come a long way. And with so many amazing experiences and luxurious hotels to be found, it is only going to improve with age.
Bryce Canyon National Park
The spectacular result of frost and river bed erosion, Bryce Canyon is a collection of limestone spires and columns that have always intrigued visitors. Magical moments happen at sunrise and sunset when the rocks take on an otherworldly, orange glow. The park lies at an altitude of nearly 3,000 metres and is cooler than the surrounding area that regularly experiences temperatures in excess of 25-30°C. Solitude can always be found at ground level in the twisting trails around the canyon floor, while views above on the cliff-top pathways put the meaning of existence into perspective. Stunning scenery combined with the fragrance of juniper trees will cast a spell over you.
Zion National Park
Zion National Park shows the USA at its most fascinating. Caused by the meanderings of the Virgin River, the area has been the habitat of Native American Indians for over 8,000 years. Canyon walls rise to well over 800 metres while below, the river's influence can be found in clear water grottos and streams. Hanging foliage adorns terracotta-shaded limestone. Zion Canyon in particular will take your breath away while trails such as the Narrows, Subway and Angel's Landing will remain in the memory forever. Considering the park packs in over two million visitors every year, there are many places where you will believe you are the only person on the planet.
For any intrepid traveller, visiting Monument Valley is a chance to play out childhood adventures. Images of this ancient vista have been used to typify the glory of the American Wild West long before John Ford began shooting his iconic westerns here in the 1930s. Wandering through this valley it is possible to gain a unique perspective on our planet as it would have looked millions of years ago. For countless millennia only the Navajo tribe, whose ancient tribal land this is, were fortunate to witness this vast cluster of sandstone buttes. They will now act as your guide across the plateau, imparting knowledge passed down through generations. A hot air balloon ride across this epic landscape is a must.
