Sights Visited on This Tour

Arches NP

More than 2,000 natural red-rock arches dot the rugged landscape of Arches National Park, Utah. Myriad other stone formations are also part of this unique sight.

Canyonlands NP

The dramatic Canyonlands have an undulating desert landscape with massive sandstone terrace sets stretching out into the horizon, shaped by the Colorado River.

Capitol Reef NP

A verdant gorge surrounded by orange and red valley walls is the highlight of Capitol Reef, with countless rock pillars, arches, and eye-catching rock formations.

Fisherman’s Wharf

San Francisco’s most dynamic neighborhood combines a picture-perfect view of the Golden Gate, the bay, and a wide selection of funfair food at its iconic pier.

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.

Jackson Hole

Jackson Hole offers urban luxury in the heart of the Teton Mountains with three ski resorts, a delightful museum dedicated to wildlife art, and quaint mountain lodging.

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.

Old Town - Sacramento

Old Sacramento has a trapped-in-time feeling to it, featuring cobbled alleys lined with buildings of the Gold Rush era, and numerous American history museums.

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.
