  • Day 1-2: Los Angeles, Colorado River & Grand Canyon

    After a short tour of Hollywood you'll leave city life behind you and travel through California to the vast swathes of Arizona's cactus-prickled desert. After spending an evening along the Colorado River you'll explore America's premier National Park and you'll soon see why this epic natural wonder attracts tons of visitors each year. Keep your feet firmly on the ground or soar above this stunning landscape on an optional helicopter flight. One thing's for sure though, this place looks incredible from any angle, but to see it in all its majestic glory head over to the rim and watch the sun rise. Trust us when we say you'll never have seen anything so beautiful!
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 3-4: Las Vegas

    Today you drive along a section of the original route 66 to the town of Seligman which stands frozen in time and is a great place to pick up some fab Route 66 memorabilia for your friends and family back home. Next stop is Las Vegas for the ultimate party pit stop! The Strip, the shows, the casinos, the clubs; Sin City's glitziest and brashest spots are sure to impress as you cruise the Las Vegas Boulevard on an included limo ride! If you're fan of heights hop onto one of the world's highest thrill rides at Vegas' Stratosphere, if that's not enough excitement for you, take a helicopter flight down The Strip and see this neon city from the sky. It's also very possible to get married in Vegas (don't worry, it's not legally binding unless you want it to be!) so live for the moment, and marry whoever (and whatever) you like!
    Accommodation: Hotels included in tour price

  • Day 5-6: Yosemite National Park

    Leave the desert behind you and head west through beautiful Californian countryside eventually making into the Yosemite National Park region, here you will get the opportunity to hike or bike through the extraordinary landscape of glacier-carved granite monoliths and spectacular waterfalls. Once inside Yosemite, keep your eyes peeled and your cameras at the ready for some incredible wildlife sightings. Bears often frequent the area and when the sun goes down listen out for coyotes howling amidst the pines and sequoias. This is a paradise for any lover of the outdoors and whatever activities you get up to in Yosemite, you're sure to have a blast.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 7: San Francisco

    On your last day with your fellow Trekkers you head back to the bright lights of another exciting city on California's west coast. Famous for its waterfront full of tasty seafood and what is probably one of the world's most iconic landmarks, the Golden Gate Bridge. Explore the quirky bars and cafes where the beatnik generation hung out or grab a bite to eat in Chinatown. You'll never be bored in San Francisco, there are heaps of things to do and see.

    This tour ends at our gateway hotel at approximately 17:00 hrs. We can book you post-tour accommodation at our gateway hotel if required. If you are planning to fly tonight, please do not book a flight that departs before 21:00 hrs.
