Two weeks in the western USA on an epic road trip!

Day 1: Los Angeles and San Diego

With the sun on your face, say goodbye to LA and hello to the Southern California city of San Diego – ‘America’s Finest ‘. Laze in grassy Balboa Park or feel sand between your toes at Mission Beach and top up your tan. San Diego has the perfect environment for so many beachfront activities; rollerblading, beach volleyball, boogie boarding and bicycling… you name it! Later, cruise the Gaslamp Quarter and the heart of San Diego’s nightlife. There will also be time for some sunshine at the world-famous San Diego Zoo or Sea World Adventure Park!

Accommodation: Camping included

Day 3: Colorado River

This is A-grade Arizona. Feel the heat beneath the blue skies of the Mojave Desert, cool off in the Colorado River and check out the original London Bridge. We kid you not!

Accommodation: Camping included

Day 4-5: Grand Canyon

Wow! You may be lost for words. Nothing you have ever seen before will prepare you for this spectacular site! Hike from the forest above to the desert below, red rock to white powder or take an optional helicopter flight for a birds-eye view and marvel at the brilliant colours. The canyon depths is nothing short of mind-blowing. Then again so is the sunrise and that’s free.

Accommodation: Camping included

Day 6-7: Las Vegas

As the desert city comes into view, luminous Vegas ups the ante – the greatest show on earth! Catch some rays by the hotel pool then dive into “The Strip” in style on an optional limousine tour. Indulge in an all-you-can eat buffet, take in a show or just watch the amazing crowds, neon and attractions that many hotel casinos have to offer. And if that’s not enough, take an optional helicopter flight down The Strip then gamble in one of the world class casinos before hitting the world famous clubs…all night long!

Accommodation: 2 en-route hotel nights included

Day 8-10: Sierra Nevada & Yosemite National Park

Next we wind through high-up peaks with far-out views across the Sierra Nevadas that will have you itching to get your trekking boots on, and there is no better place than one of nature’s greatest back yards, Yosemite National Park. Stretch your legs and walk amongst the Giant Sequoias. Hike to one of the magnificent waterfalls, or hire a bicycle to pedal along the park roads.

Accommodation: Camping included

Day 11-12: San Francisco

Fall for Frisco’s charm while touring Chinatown, Fisherman’s Wharf and the hillside heights. Enjoy a full day to explore the city, with plenty of time for shopping, sightseeing and a stroll over the Golden Gate Bridge before a cruise on the bay for an unforgettable sunset, then go bar hopping ’til the tiny hours. Mission and Marina Districts usually check the right boxes.

Accommodation: 2 en-route hotel nights included

Day 13: San Francisco & Pacific Coast

Say hello to the rugged wilderness of Big Sur and historic Monterey. Settle in to your camp and watch the sunset over the sparkling Pacific Ocean.

Accommodation: Camping included

Day 14: Los Angeles

Time to head back to ‘La La Land’ for a chance to strut your stuff down the star studded Hollywood Boulevard and for a final holiday snap beneath the famous Hollywood sign.

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.

 Accommodation

All accommodation is included in the trip. Along the way we are camping, with all equipment included in comfortable modern tents.

In Vegas and San Francisco you’ll stay in a downtown hotel. Waking up with views of national parks take some beating, and certainly beats a motel.
