Best of the West

This spectacular journey combines day walks in the most stunning national parks of the West, as well as the dynamic American cities of San Francisco and Las Vegas. We explore the trails of Yosemite to view immense glacier carved walls of soaring granite, such as the famous Half Dome, as well as the world's biggest trees, the ancient Sequoias. At Mammoth we enjoy the hot springs and following a short visit to Death Valley we continue to the magnificent Grand Canyon. Travelling north we visit Monument Valley, and this trip would not be complete without seeing Utah's incredible Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park. Three states and six National Parks later, we conclude this amazing journey in Las Vegas or San Francisco depending on the departure you choose.
