Canyons of the West - LA - 10 Days

The Wild West lives on, and this backpacker adventure trip will take you right to it! This active alternative bus tour includes Joshua Tree National Park, Zion, Bryce, Arches, Monument Valley, and the Grand Canyon. The trip wraps up with a night of fun in Las Vegas!

Hop on the adventure bus in Los Angeles and spend the day in Joshua Tree National Park. Hike the Wonderland of Rocks Trail or go bouldering, surrounded by the whimsical trees for which the park was named.

We'll travel on Historic U.S. Route 66 and traverse the arid Mojave Desert as we head to the Grand Canyon West Rim. Walk on the famous glass Skywalk above the the plummeting depths of the Grand Canyon, take an optional helicopter tour, have your photo taken on a point with dramatic panoramic views of the canyon, or learn about Native American culture at a Hualapai village.

Glittering Las Vegas is sure to please. Take a limousine tour of the strip, catch the show of a superstar, or ride the mind-blowing roller coasters on top of the Stratosphere.

In Zion National Park, trek along the Angel's Landing Trail for breathtaking views of Zion Canyon's sheer sandstone cliffs. Then, take an optional inner tube ride down the Virgin River. At Bryce Canyon, take the Rim Trail or the Fairyland Trail to view the bizarre wind-sculpted hoodoos of Bryce Amphitheater. In the evening, hop into a clawfoot tub to soak and relax under the stars at our favorite hot springs.

Traveling on to Arches National Park, hike the Devil's Garden trail past eight of the park's best known features, including Landscape Arch. For the ultimate Western experience, take a horseback ride or a jeep tour through the rugged desert-and-mesa landscape of Monument Valley.

Escape the desert heat with a cool plunge into Lake Powell or take the opportunity to enjoy a guided trip through the otherworldly, wavy walls of Antelope Canyon.

Our stay at the Grand Canyon can be spent hiking a vertical mile to the bottom of the canyon to camp near the Colorado River.* Some may walk along the South Rim to Hermit's Rest for a taste of wilderness solitude. The awe-inspiring depth and breadth of the canyon can take your breath away.

Check out a classic slice of small-town America on legendary Route 66. Finish your adventure in style with a night out on the Las Vegas Strip. Enjoy a few more hours with your new friends before we drop you off in Hollywood or Santa Monica.
