Land in Vegas

Day 1

Land in Las Vegas, and take the short drive to Boulder City

Collect your car and head out of Las Vegas on the 30-minute drive to Boulder City and the Hoover Dam. Don't worry, you'll be back in Vegas before too long once your body clock has adjusted to local time. This way you'll be able to enjoy the amazing nightlife that Vegas is famous for, whilst you’ll also get to enjoy epic sunrises with ease at the Grand Canyon and Monument Valley in the first few days of the road trip.

Hello Grand Canyon!!!

Day 2

The awe-inspiring Grand Canyon

The worlds biggest hole is an awe-inspiring natural wonder that is hard to get your head around when you first arrive. Two billion years in the making, the Colorado river has forged a mile deep, 18 mile wide and 277 mile long gauge into Arizona. The South Rim is the most popular area to visit, as it’s open year-round due to its lower elevation. If you’re visiting in the summer months however then we recommend the quieter North Rim over the larger and busier South Rim area.

Lake Powell

Day 3

Drive to Lake Powell, via Horseshoe Bend

Arizona is blessed with many natural wonders, and the area around Page is blessed with more than a few. Lake Powell, for instance, is a 186 mile stretch of water encircling beautiful rock formations, sandstone cliffs and even beaches. Lake Powell differs from the areas other wonders in that it’s man-made, consider taking a boat trip or renting a kayak to explore the waterways. After dinner, head over to arguably America's best free attraction - a sunset at Horseshoe Bend is an awesome experience that you’ll never forget.

Onto beautiful Bryce Canyon National Park

Bryce Canyon National Park is famous for its unique geology consisting of a series of horseshoe-shaped amphitheatres carved from the eastern edge of the Paunsaugunt Plateau. The erosional force of frost-wedging and the dissolving power of rainwater have shaped the colourful limestone rock into bizarre shapes, including slot canyons, windows, fins, and spires called “hoodoos".

Day 13

Wake up to Vegas fun

Wake up in the luxury of Las Vegas, the contrast with the last 10 days or so might take some adjusting to. It’s glitzy, it’s tacky and it’s wrong on so many levels... but, we love it! Firstly, it’s unique, and secondly, it’s hedonism at its finest. First-class hotels, cuisine and entertainment in the middle on a desert landscape miles from anywhere. Oh, and if you like a gamble then this is the place to be.

and relax...

Day 14

Another day in lively Las Vegas

Your second full day in Vegas. If your head hurts from the night before, then chill by one of the giant pools that adorn every hotel. If not, then walk the legendary Strip, book tickets to one of the legendary shows or shop till you drop - the choice is yours. As for food, we recommend visiting one of the mega buffets that are available in most hotels. Just make sure you are hungry when you go, you won’t need to eat again for a week! The following day you’ll fly home, we usually try to book a late flight back to give you more time to relax and so you can sleep during the flight home.
