Overview

Starting and ending in California, this incredible 15-day National Parks Explorer tour weaves through eye-popping landscapes. Get ready to discover some of the USA's most famous national parks, including Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands, Grand Canyon, Grand Teton, and Yellowstone.

Your trip begins in pretty San Francisco in northern California, before continuing on to Nevada and Idaho, where you can see Twin Falls in the Magic Valley region. Three states down, it’s time to experience Wyoming and the geothermal wonderland of Yellowstone National Park. You'll have two nights here, to ensure a full-day adventure in the park. In Wyoming, you'll also see the majestic Grand Teton National Park and Snack River Outlook.

Week two sees you travel into Utah. In the state capital, Salt Lake City, you can see the State Capital building, the famed Temple Square, and the Mormon Tabernacle. Remaining in Utah, you'll spend a few days exploring Arches National Park, Moab, Bryce Canyon, and Lake Powell.

Next, it's time to hit Arizona. On your way to Flagstaff, you'll stop at the incredible Grand Canyon, where jaw-dropping views await. You'll then spend a couple of nights in Las Vegas, before continuing on to Los Angeles. 

If you’re not ready to go home, why not extend your trip with some more time in California? Speak to our Travel Specialists to find out more.
