Top Pick

Hike, bike or horseback ride in stunning settings, enjoy city nightlife and build everlasting friendships around glowing campfires. Leave bustling Los Angeles, encounter sun kissed beaches, the mighty Colorado River and an exclusive overnight stay at Betty and Rusty's cowboy camp. Dip your toes in the red sand of the Navajo tribal lands at Monument Valley, staying overnight in a traditional hogan. Marvel at the scale of the Grand Canyon, live it up in Las Vegas, visit Death Valley and hike in Yosemite National Park. All this before arriving in San Francisco with its stunning Golden Gate Bridge. Jump aboard for an action-packed 13 days!

  • Days 1-2 Los Angeles & San Diego

    We'll kick your adventure off with a bang, taking you to Hollywood to see the stars on the Walk of Fame and the famous Hollywood sign you've only ever seen in the movies. Next head to San Diego where there are over 300 days of sunshine a year - so the odds are stacked in your favour! A perfect climate and heaps of Spanish charm mean you won't want to leave - and it's only your first stop! On the laid-back beachfront, unleash some long-lost skating moves or rub shoulders with the surf set. It's easy to agree with the locals who call San Diego 'America's finest city'. If you're not too tired at the end of the all this action why not hit the clubs and bars which come alive as the sun sets?

  • Days 3 Colorado River

    Any road trip worth its salt needs highways stretching as far as the eye can see, with nothing but stunning scenery flying past your window, and that's exactly what you're going to get. Cruise through California's sun-drenched landscape and watch in wonder as it changes from beautiful forests to arid desert. Stop to admire views of the rolling sand dunes before finishing the day at your camp right by the Colorado River.

  • Days 4 Betty & Rusty's Cowboy Camp

    This morning you'll have the chance to take a cool swim in the mighty Colorado River if you're brave enough, before heading further into Arizona for a night at an authentic cowboy camp. Saguaro Cacti cast familiar shapes across the Sonora Desert bush with their giant upturned arms, while coyotes, hawks and star-filled skies keep you company. Your hosts Betty & Rusty will cook you a cowboy steak dinner you won't forget and you can also opt to jump on one of their trusty horses for a ride under the western desert sky. Tonight, prepare for a campfire party under the stars!

  • Days 5 Monument Valley

    Monument Valley is a land of classic scenery that you'll instantly recognise from countless Western movies, and it's also the Navajo Nation's greatest natural treasure. For a very different experience, enjoy an included jeep tour of Monument Valley's backroads with a local Navajo guide and stay overnight in a traditional hogan under a blanket of stars. What's a hogan? It's a traditional clay and wood Navajo dwelling and after touring this wondrous natural movie set with our Navajo guide, there's no better place to lay your head. This is a rare experience which helps you delve beneath the surface of such a well-travelled path and you'll return home with some very special memories of this incredible place!

  • Days 6-7 Grand Canyon National Park

    Just when the scenery seems unbeatable, you make the journey to the Grand Canyon, one of the 'Seven Natural Wonders of the World'. With two days you have plenty of time to hike the rim trails for incredible views looking down into the vast desert canyons. Why not hike down the snaking trails to reveal a very different side and become one of only 5% of visitors to venture inside. Alternatively, opt for a flight over the Grand Canyon for an unbeatable bird's-eye view! The best bit? Waking up to the most stunning sunrise nature can summon as the rocks slowly change colour on a brand new day in Southwest USA.
