Your Guided Tour

Day 1: Denver

Welcome to the Mile High City. Nestled between the High Plains and the majestic Rockies, Denver entices visitors and locals alike with sunny blue skies and snowcapped peaks. After settling in at your hotel, head out on your own to take in some of Denver's attractions. At 6 p.m., gather at the hotel with your Travel Director and fellow travellers for a Welcome Reception.

Hotel: Holiday Inn Denver Cherry Creek

Day 2: Denver - Vail - Moab

Head toward the mountains this morning as you ascend into the foothills of the Rockies and cross the Continental Divide on your way to the resort destination of Vail. Founded in 1966 at the base of the largest ski mountain in the United States, this pretty alpine village has an old-world feel that attracts outdoor enthusiasts. Then it's on to Moab where, in the late 1940s, the legendary John Ford discovered the area's rugged beauty and filmed the first of many movies here. Tonight is yours - perhaps opt for taking in the sunset over the red cliffs. If you're in the mood for more excitement, try a jet boat ride along the mighty Colorado River with a dinner.

Hotel: BW Plus Canyonlands Inn, 2 nights
Meals: Breakfast

Day 3: Canyonlands and Arches National Park Excursion

Today, embark on a journey to explore two National Parks. Discover stunning Canyonlands National Park and visit magnificent Arches National Park where the wind and rain have eroded the sandstone into more than 2,000 natural arches. Wander through a kaleidoscope of geologic time as you watch the light play upon the ancient, multi-hued stone. Enjoy the rest of the day to discover on your own.

Meals: Breakfast

Day 4: Moab - Mesa Verde - Monument Valley

Travel south this morning through a mesmerising landscape dotted with natural arches and rock formations, framed by the jagged Rockies in the distance. Crossing back into Colorado, skirt the edge of the San Juan National Forest before arriving at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Mesa Verde National Park. Between 600 and 1300 A.D., the Ancestral Puebloan people carved houses and entire communities out of the sandstone along the canyon walls. Explore some of the cliff-top buildings and look down at the massive Cliff House, the largest cliff dwelling in the world; then spend some time learning about the culture and traditions of this once-great civilisation. This evening, enjoy a unique Navajo cookout Regional Meal in Monument Valley before returning to your hotel.

Hotel:Goulding's Lodge
Meals: Breakfast and dinner

Day 5: Monument Valley - Grand Canyon

This morning, after a tour of the Monument Valley floor in an open-air vehicle with a Local Specialist, wind your way through the ancestral home of the Navajo people, stopping at Cameron Trading Post to browse through handicrafts and maybe enjoy some tasty fry bread. This afternoon, follow scenic Desert View Drive before arriving at the Grand Canyon, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Immerse yourself in the stunning panoramic views from the South Rim. This afternoon, meet with a Local Specialist who will walk you through the geologic life of the canyon and enjoy the chance to examine the multi-coloured rocks from different eras of the canyon's formation. Toast your grand adventure and your new lifelong memories at a Farewell Dinner inside the park this evening.

Hotel: National Park Lodges
Meals: Breakfast and dinner

Day 6: Grand Canyon - Las Vegas

Rise early to catch the first rays of light as they illuminate the canyon. Perhaps take an optional helicopter or fixed-wing aircraft flightseeing trip to view the canyon from the sky. Hit the road again, stopping along famed Route 66 hot spots, Seligman and Kingman. Driving through these desert oases is like cruising back in time to see the classic motels, diners and gas stations of a simpler time. Then it's full speed ahead to glittering Las Vegas.

Hotel: Tropicana Las Vegas
Meals: Breakfast

Day 7: Depart Las Vegas

This morning, a transfer is provided to Las Vegas International Airport or perhaps choose to extend your stay in Las Vegas.

Meals: Breakfast
