Departs From: Los Angeles

Tour duration: 7 days

This quick taste of the western USA highlights the area's two most important national parks and the wonders of incomparable Las Vegas. Add the desert splendour of the Colorado River region and sandwich between America's loveliest city, San Francisco, and its most unique, Los Angeles.

Our routes have been carefully chosen to include the best night stops and highlights. However, as local conditions and passenger requests vary, no two trips will ever be the same. With the guidance of your Trek Leader you may modify certain nightstops and highlights to give a truly unique experience!

This tour also departs from San Francisco

Local Payments - Food Kitty: US$10 per day. En-route Hotels: Approx US$30 x 2 nights

Day: 1-2 Los Angeles, Colorado River & Grand Canyon
After a short tour of Hollywood we bid the City of Angels farewell and head through California on day one to the vast swathes of Arizona's cactus-prickled desert. After spending an evening along the Colorado River we explore America's premier National Park, and find out why it is called the Grand Canyon. Keep your feet firmly on the ground or swoop above it all on an optional flight. One thing's for sure though, this place looks incredible from any angle, especially walking along the rim at sunset.
Accommodation: Camping included

Day: 3-4 Las Vegas
Next, Las Vegas - the greatest show on earth! 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! Hop onto one of the world's highest thrill rides at Vegas' Stratosphere and it won't just be your head that's spinning. And if that's not enough, take a helicopter flight down The Strip or just gamble the night away in one of the world class casinos.
Accommodation: 2 en-route hotel nights paid locally

Day: 5-6 Yosemite National Park
Heading through Central California we take a scenic drive into the Yosemite National Park region and a chance to hike or bike through the extraordinary landscape of glacier-carved granite monoliths and spectacular waterfalls. Keep your eyes peeled for black bears. Coyote roam freely as well and when the sun goes down, their howling often echoes amidst pines and sequoias. Admit it, this is what clicks the spirit of the great outdoors up a notch or two.
Accommodation: Camping included

Day: 7 San Francisco
On our last day together we head back west through California's gold country, where in 1848 the finding of a single nugget triggered a stampede of gold-seekers known as the 49'ers, before arriving at the home of the beatnik generation, San Francisco.

Tour ends at approx 17:00 hrs in San Francisco on day 7.
