Canyons of the West - LA - 11 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, keeping an eye out for 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.

After all of this nature, 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 Las Vegas, take a limousine tour of the strip, see the legendary comedy improv of Second City, or ride the roller-coaster at New York, New York. In Zion National Park, hike the Angel's Landing Trail for an incredible view of Zion Canyon's sheer cliffs, or go inner tubing on the Virgin River. At Bryce Canyon, hike the Rim Trail or the Fairyland Trail to view the bizarre wind-sculpted hoodoos of Bryce Amphitheater.

Moving 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 Wild West 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. From Mather Point, you'll have two full days to explore the Grand Canyon. Hike a vertical mile to the bottom of the canyon and camp beside the Colorado River*, or walk along the South Rim to Hermit's Rest for a taste of wilderness solitude.

Check out a classic slice of small-town Americana on Route 66, and wrap up your adventure in style with one last night on the Las Vegas Strip. Enjoy a few more hours with your new friends before we drop you off in Hollywood or Santa Monica.
