Grand Canyon and Rocky Mountain Trails
On this superb hiking adventure we bring to life western USA's most famous parks, home to some of the most dramatic landscapes in the world. During a series of selected hikes, we absorb the geysers, giant waterfalls, prolific wildlife and valleys full of boiling mud pots in Yellowstone, trek and camp in the Grand Canyon amongst the turquoise pools and waterfalls of the spectacular Havasupai Canyon and hike in the dramatic Rocky Mountains. From Aspen and Steamboat Springs we undertake some world class day hikes in the high Rockies. Linking the parks and hikes are stunning drives such as the 'Million Dollar Highway', considered to be the most scenic in North America. A visit to Mesa Verde UNESCO World Heritage Site and Monument Valley and our final night in Las Vegas rounds off this exhilarating adventure.
