Sights Visited on This Tour

Home to picture-postcard spires of crimson rock, Bryce Canyon is Utah’s prime address for epic sunrises and sunsets, boasting exhilarating trails and viewpoints.

A UNESCO heritage site and one of the most spectacular geological spectacles in the world, Grand Canyon is a gorge where nature is still working its magic.

A gorgeous alpine land bolstered by the majestic Teton Mountains in the backdrop, Grand Teton brims with valleys, lakes, meadows, and America’s best backcountry views.

An artificial reservoir encompassing a vast area in Utah and Arizona, Lake Powell draws visitors with its glowing landscape, fine lodges, and plenty of leisurely activities.

Named after its indigenous Mojave people, the desert is where the true spirit of the wild west resides, between California and Nevada in the shadow of the Sierra Nevada.

The Mother Road was one of the first original routes established in the United States, and today its legacy carries on as the route of adventure and trips in America.

Santa Barbara offers a piece of the Mediterranean on the Californian coast, a postcard city where wine, stylish restaurants, and romantic buildings dominate the scene.

Sunset Strip is by far the hippest stretch of Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood, oozing the grandeur associated with the place through trendy shops and restaurants.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints anchors the Temple Square at the heart of Salt Lake City, where historic landmarks and social venues abound.

A vast geographical wonderland resting on top of a volcanic zone, Yellowstone is filled with geysers, hot springs, canyons and rivers that are restlessly in motion.
