Day 1 Las Vegas

Welcome to the U.S.A.! This tour will begin when guests have met at the specified departure location in Las Vegas. We will start with a Welcome Meeting at 6:00pm today. Guests should look for a note in the hotel lobby or ask at the reception desk to learn the location of this meeting. At the meeting, we will go over all the necessary information for the days ahead.

Day 2 Las Vegas - Death Valley (102 miles)

We will spend most of today driving through Death Valley and across the Eastern Sierra. The National Park includes a wealth of geological phenomena, including large sand dune formations, sculpted rocks, isolated valleys, and volcanic craters. The elevation fluctuates from 85 m below sea level near Badwater Point (the lowest point in the US) to 3765 m above sea level at Telescope Peak. We will stop at the visitor center and, heat permitting, take a walk on the stunning salt flats.

Please note that sometimes over the summer months, we may not be able to visit Death Valley itself if the heat is extreme and we feel that the conditions present a safety risk. In these cases we will visit some areas on the outskirts with similar geography so that you can still get a feel for the valley, but at a higher elevation where it is not as hot. Depending on weather and the wishes of the group, you may also be offered the option of spending the morning in Las Vegas, visiting a ghost town in the desert, or going to Mono Lake.

Day 3 Death Valley - Yosemite National Park (170 miles)

Today we will drive west, travelling over the Tioga Pass (snow levels permitting) and into the heart of the Sierra Nevada. Our destination is Yosemite National Park, one of the most famous in the USA, featuring colossal granite cliffs, cascading waterfalls, and redwood trees that attract visitors from all over the world.

Day 4 Yosemite National Park

We will have the entirety of today free to get out and explore Yellowstone National Park. There are plenty of hiking routes we can take, each varying in steepness and difficulty. We will also have many non-hiking activities available to us, such as bicycling around Yosemite Valley, visiting the park's museum, photo gallery, shops, restaurants, or just walking the trails on the valley floor. In the heat of the summer, we can float down the Merced River to relax, followed by sipping a few drinks at the park's café.

Day 5 Yosemite National Park - San Francisco (157 miles)

Today, we will leave behind Yosemite and head west towards San Francisco, a chilled-out city by the bay with a vibrant, multi-cultural heart. We can catch a tram down to the waterfront or take a cruise on the bay to see the impressive Golden Gate Bridge.
