Las Vegas

Welcome to the USA!

Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 6:00pm on Day 1.

You can arrive at any time as there are no activities planned until this important meeting. Please look for a note in the hotel lobby or ask the hotel reception where it will take place. If you can't arrange a flight that will arrive in time, you may wish to arrive a day early so you're able to attend. We'll be happy to book additional accommodation for you (subject to availability). If you're going to be late, please inform the hotel reception. We'll be collecting your insurance details and next of kin information at this meeting, so please ensure you have all these details to provide to your leader.

Las Vegas is the gambling capital of the world, but there's plenty to do along the Strip for gamblers and non-gamblers alike - there's the casinos and shows, of course, plus shops, amusement rides, dance clubs and great value 'all you can eat' buffets.

As there's a great deal to do in Las Vegas you recommend you arrive a few days early to make the most of this exciting city. If you need help booking extra accommodation, our reservations team will be happy to assist.

Lake Powell

You leave Nevada today and enter Arizona, on the way to your cowboy camp at Lake Powell. You spend the night in a ranch-hands' bunkhouse.

Located on the border of Utah and Arizona and created by the construction of the Glen Canyon Dam on the Colorado River, Lake Powell has a shoreline that stretches longer than the western coast of the USA. Many say that Glen Canyon was even more spectacular than the Grand Canyon before the dam was built. Now the lake is a haven for water sports or just relaxing in one of the many sandstone coves.

Enjoy the wide open spaces with a stay at the Paria Canyon Ranch in the remote Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.

Included Activities

  • Glen Canyon National Recreation Area

Day

Monument Valley

You have a short drive today to the spectacular Monument Valley.

The backdrop for countless westerns, Monument Valley is part of the biggest Indian reservation in the US and home to more than 200,000 Indians of the Navajo Tribe. Monument Valley is so-named for the giant sandstone formations scattered across the desert. The angle of the sun means that the landscape is constantly changing colour and it's near impossible to take a bad photo.

Included Activities

  • Monument Valley National Tribal Park
  • Jeep tour & overnight experience

Grand Canyon National Park

Grand Canyon National Park

No matter how many pictures you've seen, you can't fail to be awed by our destination today - the Grand Canyon.

This national landmark is 18 miles wide, 277 miles long and over a mile deep, making it one of the largest canyon systems in the world. Stroll the meandering South Rim Trail, hike your way down to Plateau Point, opt for a scenic flight or simply relax at the canyon's edge and enjoy a spectacular sunset over one the world's natural wonders.

Prescott

Heading out of the Grand Canyon today, you drive south to the town of Prescott.

Once Arizona's capital, Prescott is now a small community located half way between the Grand Canyon and the present capital, Phoenix. Prescott is situated on the edge of the Prescott National Forest, and is also close by the stunning Willow and Watson Lakes. In the evening, head for a drink down on Whiskey Row. Once a notorious red light district, this street is now full of historic bars and saloons, many featuring live music.

Los Angeles - the 'City of Angels' - is world-renowned for the streets of Hollywood and Beverly Hills, and the shopping on Rodeo Drive. From Venice Beach to Disneyland, it's a veritable smorgasbord for the senses.
