2 nights self-drive tour
Price from: £269pp
Grand Canyon National Park 2 nights
Day 1 Las Vegas/Grand Canyon: Collect your car and leave the bright lights behind as you travel through the scenic desert to your chosen accommodation at the Grand Canyon.
Day 2 Grand Canyon: We recommend that you start by heading to the Grand Canyon Visitor Centre which has lots of great resources along with expert rangers who can advise on guided tours. This incredible natural wonder stretches for 277 miles from end to end and its walls descend over a mile to the floor, where the wild Colorado River carves its way through the rugged landscape. There are fantastic panoramas from a variety of paved viewing points along a variety of trails, allowing you to stop here and there to marvel at the quite incredible and totally mesmerising views. Alternatively, free shuttle buses operate along set routes around the rim which link the visitor centre and viewpoints with hotels and other facilities. Another option is to hire bikes, either to explore independently or with a tour guide, which is recommended as they can take you to viewpoints away from the crowds. For a bird’s eye view across this head-turning landscape, consider booking a helicopter tour. Be sure to find yourself a top spot so you can watch the picture-perfect views as the sun disappears for the day. The sky transforms into a vibrant palette of colour and the sight is sure to live long in the memory.
Day 3 Grand Canyon/Las Vegas: For another perspective of the Grand Canyon, why not rise early in order to catch a glimpse of the sunrise as it sweeps across this extraordinary natural wonder. If time allows, take another stroll along the rim before returning to Las Vegas where your tour finishes. Alternatively, why not travel on and see more of the West?
