Travel along Lake Michigan and on to Chicago, where you will enjoy a short tour of the city’s highlights, including Lake Shore Drive, the Magnificent Mile and Navy Pier. The Windy City’s stunning high rise architecture and one of the world’s tallest buildings, the Willis Tower (admission not included), provide a dramatic backdrop for this cultural and financial centre.

Day-7 - Chicago - Sioux City

Travel through Midwest farm country abundant in corn fields, wheat fields and dairy farms. Then we cross the mighty Mississippi River and travel into the state of Iowa to arrive just as Lewis & Clark did 200 years ago on the banks of the Missouri River. Overnight in Sioux City.


Day-8 - Sioux City - Badlands National Park - Mt. Rushmore National Memorial - Deadwood / Rapid City

Travel westward through the grasslands of South Dakota and onwards to Badlands National Park, once home to buffalo and antelope, and filled with strange shaped and colourful rock formations.

Day-9 - Deadwood / Rapid City - Bighorn Mountains - Cody

Enter the state of Wyoming, which has twelve mountain ranges intermixed with deserts and rolling grasslands, and continue to Cody for the night.

If overnight in Cody is not possible due to weather or adverse road conditions in Yellowstone, overnight will be in Billings/Livingston, Montana.

Travel through Grand Teton National Park (weather permitting) and see awesome mountain peaks towering over 13,000 ft. (4,000 meters). Visit the Snake River Outlook and try your eye at capturing the stunning landscape made famous by Ansel Adam’s iconic shot. This prairie land is home to wild buffalo, moose and elk. Later, arrive in the Mormon State of Utah and take a short city tour of its capital, Salt Lake City. The followers of Brigham Young built one of the best-planned cities in the country. See the State Capital building and visit famed Temple Square and the Tabernacle before arriving at the hotel for the evening. May we suggest dinner at the Rooftop Restaurant for panoramic views of Temple Square (optional)?


Day-12 - Salt Lake City - Bryce Canyon National Park

Continue today to spectacular Bryce Canyon, where a tour through a multi-coloured world of sandstone spires and pinnacles, "Hoodoos", will dazzle the eye. This evening, weather permitting, be sure to gaze upon the spectacular night sky filled with sparkling stars & brilliant constellations and the aroma of pinewood campfires.


Day-13 - Bryce - Lake Powell - Grand Canyon - Flagstaff

Depart Bryce Canyon this morning and journey to stunning Lake Powell, where crystal blue water laps against towering red-rock canyon walls. Lake Powell is the second-largest manmade lake in America, and one in a series of lakes formed by the damming of the Colorado River. Then visit colossal Grand Canyon National Park, one of the seven great natural wonders of the world. Stop at the Canyon rim to fully experience this mile-deep canyon’s plunging gorges, rising spires, extinct volcanoes, and below the rim, the winding Colorado River. Overnight in Flagstaff, a famed stop on historic Route 66.


Day-14 - Flagstaff - Seligman / Route 66 - Las Vegas

This morning depart Flagstaff and travel on to Las Vegas, the dazzling “Entertainment Capital of the World”.

The remainder of the day is at leisure for you to explore the famous Las Vegas strip.
