Death Valley National Park holidays provide the perfect blend of breath-taking natural scenic views, exhilarating hikes through colourful canyons, and fascinating landmarks such as Badwater Basin.
Death Valley is the ideal destination for families, couples and solo travellers who have an adventurous side and want to unearth a world of wonder and geological phenomena.
Visit Badwater Basin, which is the lowest part in North America. At 282 feet below sea level this incredible salt flat provides a truly out-of-this-world experience and features a surreal landscape for explorers to discover. Capture the dramatic landscapes of the luminous sand dunes, the sculpted rock formations and the picturesque imposing mountains that tower over the salt flats.
Death Valley is the driest place in North America and is known as one of the hottest places in the world, but despite this there’s still a wealth of wildlife to spot, such as kangaroo rats, bighorn sheep, jackrabbits, kit fox, greater roadrunners, and pupfish.
