Your Example Itinerary
Fly from the UK to Phoenix.
Upon arrival, pick-up your car and drive to your hotel in Scottsdale, one of Phoenix's most affluent suburbs. Enjoy a nice evening meal at one of Scottsdale's eateries, or perhaps start off your trip with a pampering spa treatment right at your hotel.
Nourish your soul and spirit in quirky Sedona, an incredibly scenic city, with Oak Creek Canyon at its edge. Believed by some to have special powers, Sedona draws mystics, spiritualists and tourists alike. The town itself is filled with art galleries and gourmet restaurants, while outside town, grand red sandstone pillars are surrounded by clear streams and dramatic canyons. While you are here, be sure to gaze up at the night sky because Sedona is a great star-gazing spot, and is home to the Lowell Observatory, founded in 1894.
Stay right on the edge of the yawning abyss of the Grand Canyon, and take your pick as to how you want to explore this stunning landscape - perhaps on foot over a hundred miles of hiking trails, perhaps on a nature walk, or by taking the Grand Canyon Railway. Maybe learn a bit more by popping into a museum or two. Whatever you choose, the highlight will surely be when you take to the skies and enjoy breath-taking views of the ravines and gorges on your included helicopter ride.
Step straight into a western movie in Monument Valley, where you can follow the scenic driving route among the enormous rock formations. To see the valley in all its glory, head into Navajo Tribal Park, one of the most photographed landmarks in the United States. Admire the rich red colours of the dusty landscape and bizarre sandstone towers that dot the sands while learning more about the region’s Native American tribes.
Relax on the cool blue water of Lake Powell, a reservoir on the Colorado River that straddles the Utah-Arizona border. This man-made lake has over 1960 miles of shoreline, so unsurprisingly boating, water-skiing, kayaking and fishing are the order of the day here. Swimming, scuba diving and snorkelling are also possible, and for the less watery types, hiking is possible along many of the 96 canyons, although some are accessible only by boat.
Zion National Park
Enter Utah’s Zion National Park, where narrow slot canyons and deep red sandstone cliffs offer hikes galore. The park is home to over a thousand desert plant species and people have lived here for over 12,000 years, so there’s plenty of history to discover too. Explore this beautiful landscape by bike, on horseback or by canyoneering – it’s up to you. Walks range in length and difficulty so there’s something for everyone. With some epic hikes and spectacular scenery, it’s unsurprising that this is Utah’s most visited park, as well as its oldest.
Cross the state border to Nevada and be dazzled by the bright lights of the Las Vegas strip. Admire the rows of luxury hotels, take a flutter in the casinos and try a spin or two on the roulette wheel before taking in the aquatic Le Rêve theatre show. Watch the coloured lights light up the Atlantis Fountain at Caesars Palace and dine out in style at numerous themed restaurants. Try the Eiffel Tower Restaurant at the top of the Paris Hotel, with fabulous views of the dazzling lights of Las Vegas Boulevard below.
Depart Las Vegas and return to the UK.
