Day 1 : Las Vegas
Seeing is believing when it comes to wonderfully O.T.T Las Vegas! Spend your evening here watching the famous dancing fountains at The Bellagio Hotel, take a stroll around the boutiques at Caesar's Palace, or enjoy one of the many award-winning shows.
Day 2 - 3 : Zion National Park & Bryce Canyon National Park
Distance: 360 miles
On leaving Las Vegas it's just a short drive to Zion National Park and some of the world’s most incredible sandstone formations formed millions of years ago by the powerful hand of nature. Drive by the Cedar Breaks National Monument, through the Dixie National Forest and on to Bryce Canyon National Park, where Pink Cliffs and natural arches await you.
Bryce Canyon National Park is named for just one of many canyons which form a series of horseshoe-shaped amphitheaters on the edge of the Paunsaugunt Plateau in southern Utah. Erosion has carved colourful Claron limestone’s into thousands of spires, fins, arches and mazes. Collectively called, hoodoos, these unique formations are whimsically arranged and tinted with colours too numerous and subtle to name.
Day 4 - 6 : Canyonlands, Arches & Deadhorse State Park
Distance: 266 miles
Early risers can catch the sunrise over Bryce Canyon before heading to Capitol Reef National Park. Continue to Moab, Utah, your three night base from which to explore Canyonlands, Dead Horse State Park and Arches National Park, home to the world’s largest concentration of natural stone arches.
Day 7 : Canyonlands National Park - Mesa Verde National Park
Distance: 200 miles
Stop by the unique Hovenweep National Monument before continuing on to Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado, home of the Native American cliff dwellings.
Mesa Verde, Spanish for green table, offers a spectacular look into the lives of the Ancestral Pueblo people who made it their home for over 700 years, from A.D. 600 to A.D. 1300. Today, the park protects over 4,000 known archaeological sites, including 600 cliff dwellings. These sites are some of the most notable and best preserved in the United States.
Day 8 : Mesa Verde National Park - Monument Valley
Distance: 145 miles
As you begin your drive, pass Four Corners National Monument, the only point in America common to four states. Cross Navajo Country on your way to Monument Valley which provides perhaps the most enduring and definitive images of the American West. The isolated red mesas and buttes surrounded by empty, sandy desert have been filmed and photographed countless times over the years for movies, adverts and holiday brochures. Because of this, the area may seem quite familiar, even on a first visit, but it is soon evident that the natural colours really are as bright and deep as those in all the pictures.
The valley is not a valley in the conventional sense, but rather a wide flat, sometimes desolate landscape, interrupted by the crumbling formations rising hundreds of feet into the air, the last remnants of the sandstone layers that once covered the entire region.
Day 9 - 10 : Monument Valley - Page/Lake Powell
Distance: 245 miles
You'll have the opportunity to explore the region this morning, perhaps visiting Goosenecks State Park and Mexican Hat. Then head to the crystalline blue waters of Lake Powell.
Lake Powell is the second largest man-made lake in the United States, it's a staggering 186 miles long and has 1,960 miles of shoreline, which is longer than the entire west coast of the continental United States.
Explore a few of its 96 canyons by boat trips that depart throughout the day. Other activities here include hiking, swimming, snorkelling, scuba diving or for the more adventurous try the helicopter trips over the lake.
A must-do whilst in this area is Antelope Canyon, one of the world's most photographed slot canyons. Best viewed early morning and reservations are required, so please speak to your Bon Voyage consultant about this unmissable experience.
Day 11 - 12 : Page/Lake Powell - Grand Canyon National Park
Distance: 140 miles
The Grand Canyon will simply overwhelm you with its immense size, 277 river miles long, up to 18 miles wide, and a mile deep. Sunrise and sunset are spectacular, be sure to hop on a helicopter for a trip over the dramatic North Rim too.
There are many sightseeing options available, please call our team of experts at Bon Voyage to discuss these.
Day 13 : Sedona
Distance: 107 miles
A must-do and slight detour en route to Sedona is Meteor Crater. This is the world's best preserved meteor impact site and is a result of a collision between an asteroid travelling at 26,000 miles per hour and planet Earth 50,000 years ago! It's worth the detour, trust us.
Sedona is dubbed "The Most Beautiful place on Earth", and it doesn't disappoint. This desert town is surrounded by red-rock buttes and experiences some of the most memorising sunsets in the USA. It's serene, spectacular setting is the perfect, relaxing end to a holiday through some of America's most spectacular scenery.
Day 14 : Phoenix
Distance: 60 miles
With an early evening flight back to the UK, there's time for some last-minute shopping in chic Scottsdale.
