The western states of California, Utah and Arizona are famous for their astounding national parks and this great family adventure takes us to most of them. Arriving in Las Vegas we visit the fierce desert environment of Death Valley (all hotels here have pools!) where the scenery is stunning and out of this world. We then spend 2 days at a ranch resort in the heart of Utah's Canyon Country, sleeping in cowboy wagons and exploring at the nearby reserve areas of Zion and Bryce Canyon. In Bryce Canyon we sleep in Native American tepees. Moving on, we spend time at Lake Powell and in Monument Valley, the ancestral home of the Navajo Native Americans. Two days at the Grand Canyon allows us to explore some of the options here; rafting on the Colorado River, biking or hiking on the canyon rim, or simply enjoying the sunset views. A final drive on ‘Route 66' takes us by way of the Hoover Dam to Las Vegas, with time to walk the ‘Strip', with its outlandish hotels and casinos. As the Lone Ranger would say....."Hi ho Silver.. away!"
Is this holiday for you?
Suitable for childern from 8yrs old
During this family holiday, we travel some long distances, but often spend at least 2 nights at the same accommodation. Exploring in the national parks can be guided or self-guided. Some of the activities at the ranch resort are optional and paid for locally. The swimming pool, hot tub and various other games are included. We overnight in simple hotels, in cowboy wagons, a tepee and have 5 nights camping. Many nights have swimming pools. All family members are expected to help with camp chores. If you wish to partake in any of the water activities you must be able to swim.
