Itinerary

01

Day 1-2: Las Vegas - Route 66 - Grand Canyon National Park

Leave the bright lights of Vegas behind as it's time to embark on one heck of an adventure, packed full of red rocks and canyons. Fill up your bags with tons of awesome Route 66 memorabilia in the little desert town of Seligman. Refuel at Delgadillo's Snow Cap Diner with an unmissable ice cream sundae. Then next up is the daddy of all canyons, the Grand Canyon. As soon as you set eyes on this epic landscape you'll quickly see why this place is so special to locals and tourists alike. With two nights here you'll have plenty of time to explore this wonderland, from the clifftop trails down to the deeper depths of the canyon to Plateau Point. For the ultimate Grand Canyon experience take to the sky on an optional helicopter flight and see the mighty canyon from above. If you want to be amazed whilst keeping your feet firmly on the ground then make sure you watch as the sun sets or rises on the canyon and the colours explode around you.

On the road again and off to one of North America's most iconic landscapes, used as the set for countless Western movies. It's the awesome landscape that people come for, but it's the incredible Navajo people that ensure Monument Valley will stay etched in your memory. Immerse yourself in the native culture on an optional guided jeep tour of the Navajo Reservation and backroads.

Day 4: Arches National Park - Moab

Stop at the viewpoint of Moki Dugway for a superb view of the road snaking down the mountainside, through the red-rock desert. Known for being the USA's adventure playground, Moab is next on your itinerary. It's called Arches National Park for a reason and as you start to explore you'll be amazed at the countless red rock formations that have been shaped by the elements and are dotted all over the park. Delicate Arch is a highlight which everyone comes here to see and you'll be truly amazed as you witness the iconic red arch against the backdrop of the bright blue Western sky.

Along the way hike to Horseshoe Canyon and see if you can spot some unique rock art. Feel like you have stepped into another world as you explore High Spur slot canyon. You'll want to have your camera fully charged as High Spur is renowned as one of the most photogenic slot canyons in the area. There is no doubt about it, these two days will knock your socks off!

Day 7: Goblin Valley State Park - Capitol Reef National Park - Bryce Canyon National Park

Stop by Goblin Valley State Park, so-called thanks to its weird goblin-like rock formations, and the petroglyphs at Capitol Reef National Park en route to Bryce Canyon National Park. This park has left many people speechless trying to describe this fantastic and unique place. Erosion is the artist here as over time it has carved thousands of spires, fins and mazes into a weird and wonderful landscape; these bizarre creations are known as hoodoos. You won’t have seen anything like it before.

It's most definitely not for the faint hearted, but be brave and the incredible views will be yours to enjoy.

The best US trip I've ever been on! Experienced lots of different and incredible views in so many national parks. A night sleeping out in monument valley, with traditional Navajo food after our tour around in the 4x4 . Canyon lands was also a huge highlight of the trip. Exhausting hikes but definitely worth it. Zion was also amazing, especially the hike through the river. Anyone who enjoys hikes with amazing views to take hundreds of photos along the way.

This was my 4th trip with Trek America and most definitely the best! 10 days of being in the great outdoors. Being able to spend so much time in all the national parks, you can really see why west is the best. The Grand Canyon, is such an amazing place, and a great place to get to know your group. If you have the funds, you have to do the helicopter flight. You also get a free day, so you can hike as much or as little as possible. If you have the fitness, you should do the bright angel trail down to plateau point. One of the best things i have ever done. Monument Valley, make sure that you do the optional extra of staying over in the valley. We used blackwater company and had the best campground. Being able to sleep outside, no tent and see the milky way was amazing (even if we did wake up to wild horses) Moab - make sure that you spend time in arches on your first day, as this is the only time that you get there. The hike to delicate arch is definitely one i suggest, being able to just chill out at the top with the view is just amazing The 4x4 adventure - THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER DONE. Being able to go to place in canyonlands that not everyone can access is amazing. Going into the same slot canyon as 127 hours and it is so out of this world. We camped in the middle of no where and once again slept under the stars and saw the milkyway. the best thing ever. Capitol Reef and Bryce - a short but sweet visit to both, but you get a great insight into the feel of the nationa
