Las Vegas

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 fun, a premier wedding and honeymoon location, a sparkling platform from which to explore the most incredible national parks and of course, the quintessential party destination. For a city founded in 1905 Las Vegas has come an awful long way. And with so many amazing experiences and luxurious hotels to be found, it is only going to improve with age. 

Highlights

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 80 degrees celsius. 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.  

Highlights

Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park

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.

Highlights

Grand Canyon National Park

Experience the spectacular Grand Canyon National Park, from watching the play of colours over the South Rim as the sun rises beyond the horizon to stepping out onto the glass Skywalk 2000 feet above the canyon floor. Join a ranger guided walk to learn more about this fascinating park and the animals which call the Grand Canyon home. 

Flagstaff

Spend a couple of days in the history town of Flagstaff. From the nostalgia of Historic Route 66 to the rich Native American history of the Colorado Plateau this unique mountain town has plenty to offer visitors. For outdoor adventure head to the Shultz Pass trail or Fort Tuthill County Park. For dramatic views of the surrounding red rocks and alpine forests head to the Arizona Snowbowl and spend a heavenly evening star gazing at the impressive Lowell Observatory. 

Phoenix & Scottsdale

Surrounded by a stunning desert backdrop filled with saguaro cacti, the laidback yet sophisticated city of Phoenix is waiting to be explored. From friendly dive bars and contemporary street art to boutique shopping and a host of museums and galleries, Phoenix has something to offer any visitor. Stroll through the winding paths of the Desert Botanical Garden where you will find an array of arid plant from the towering saguaro to delicate desert blooms. Hike to the top of Camelback Mountain to take in the awe insiring panoramic views and be sure to visit the Heard Museum to learn about the traditions, culture and history of the 22 regional American Indian tribe which call the Southwest home.
