• Empty road in Monument Valley

Utah & Arizona

Craggy terrain, verdant greens and red-rock landscapes await, on your trip to the USA’s Wild West. Home to the mighty five national parks of Utah and the largest geological formations in North America, these states can easily be reached from the bright lights of Las Vegas on one epic road trip. Whether you’re exploring by foot, helicopter or hot air balloon, Utah & Arizona are sure to take your breath away. See the stunning Grand Canyon National Park, carved out by the Colorado River, and witness the colourful Painted Desert from above for the best views.

With some of The Greatest Snow on Earth in Utah, skiers and snowboarders will be spoilt for choice with 10 ski resorts less than one hours drive of Salt lake City. Go snow tubing with the family or explore and ice castle, snowshoe or snowmobile through the mountains or relax in the hot tub at luxury lodging.

For a slice of cowboy city life, head to Tucson or Phoenix, Arizona's capital, where you’ll also find golf courses and shopping opportunities galore. The affluent suburb of Scottsdale is also worth a visit where you can get an insight into native American history at the Heard Museum. Families will enjoy Bearizona wildlife park or the Arizona Science Center plus the great outdoors to keep kids of all ages entertained on holiday. 

For even more incredible natural beauty, tour more of USA’s national parks during your trip: head to Yosemite National Park for dramatic backdrops and waterfalls, or Yellowstone National Park for exploding geysers and Native American culture.

    "Witness the deep orange and crimson hues of Bryce Canyon's hoodoos as they are intensified by the light of the sun at either end of the day. We took a blanket and enjoyed the views before the sun set below the horizon, it was stunning."
