Discover the captivating landscapes of the American canyonlands on this unforgettable tour of the US National Parks. You’ll begin and end in Las Vegas, and stay along the way inside the mighty Grand Canyon, near Monument Valley, Lake Powell in Page, inside Bryce Canyon National Park and in St George – heart of Mormon county in Utah.

You’ll stay in one of the few hotels inside Grand Canyon National Park, just metres from the rim, giving you the opportunity to witness a glorious sunrise – and sunset – over the canyon. In Bryce Canyon, you'll love soaking up the space-age landscapes and eerie rock formations of spires, amphitheatres and 'hoodoos'. Relax in the beauty and tranquility of Zion national park, a valley oasis of green forest surrounded by massive canyon walls that soar forever upwards. You’ll have plenty of time here to unwind, explore, join a park ranger talk or take a gentle amble along its many trails.

But the once-in-a-lifetime moments don't end there. In Monument Valley, you'll take a four-wheel-drive tour accompanied by a Navajo guide, who'll reveal all the Native American stories, legends and secrets of the land with all its iconic buttes and pillars – the backdrop of many a Western film. At Navajo National Monument, visit the medieval villages, built by the Puebloan Ancestors. Witness the power of Glen Canyon Dam, the country’s second-highest concrete-arch dam, which holds back Lake Powell – and take an optional cruise through Antelope Canyon for a different view of the desert. Finally, you’ll visit Snow Canyon State Park, a sandstone wonderland at the foot of the red mountains of Utah.

A once-in-a-lifetime journey exploring the raw beauty and incredible scenery of the US National Parks, this tour will leave you with a lifetime's worth of spectacular memories to relive time and again.
