Itinerary

Day 1 UK to Denver

Today, make your own way to the airport or be collected by our Private Chauffeur (if you've pre-booked) for your flight to Denver, Colorado.

Day 2 Rapid City

South Dakota's Black Hills are an impressive sight and Rapid City, where we'll head today, is nestled on the eastern foothills. En route we'll call at Cheyenne and Fort Laramie, where chief Red Cloud signed the treaty that gave much land to the Sioux. We will arrive in Fort Hays for a Chuckwagon Supper and Cowboy Music Show. The venue is located on the film set of the Oscar-winning 'Dances with Wolves', which starred Kevin Costner. Meals included: B,D

Day 3 Mount Rushmore

Mount Rushmore, with its famous granite sculptures of Presidents Roosevelt, Lincoln, Washington and Jefferson, is our destination today. We'll also take in the Crazy Horse Memorial, the world's largest mountain carving, in progress for over 70 years. Badlands National Park is a strange and beautiful landscape of deep gorges, saw-edged spires and grassy-topped buttes - an eerie world carved out by 35 million years of wind and water erosion. We will visit the park this afternoon.

Meals included: B

Day 4 Deadwood

Our journey today takes us through the Black Hills into 'Wild West' territory and the city of Deadwood, which was frequented many years ago by the likes of Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane. We'll continue to Sheridan for an overnight stay. Meals included: B

Day 5 Little Bighorn Battlefield

The historic battlefield site of Little Bighorn is where General Custer and the 7th Cavalry were outfought by Crazy Horse. You can see where the soldiers fell - markers were placed only days after the battle - and absorb all the events of that fateful day on our guided tour. Meals included: B

Day 6 Yellowstone National Park

​The world's oldest national park, Yellowstone is a wonderland of spouting geysers, terraced hot springs, boiling pools and bubbling mud pots. You may see the extraordinary Yellowstone Canyon with its waterfall twice the height of Niagara, the Fountain Paint Pots and, of course, 'Old Faithful', which erupts every 93 minutes, during our visit. The park is also a wildlife sanctuary, with wild bears, elk and herds of buffalo roaming freely.​

Day 13 Grand Canyon

​Eroded over millions of years by the ebb and flow of the Colorado River, the Grand Canyon is surely one of the world's most intense and absorbing sights. From the South Rim, you'll be able to admire the most incredible and spectacular panoramas, and for a bird's-eye view, why not take an optional flight over the canyon – it's the only way to get a real feel for the immense scale of this astounding natural wonder. Stop just outside of the National Park and enjoy a Navajo Taco from the Native Grill supported by the Just You Cares project, before continuing to Kanab. You may recognise the scenery here, as the town and surrounding desert has often been used as a film set.​​

Meals included: B

Day 14 Bryce Canyon National Park

​Subtle colours, delicate spires of rock and vast natural amphitheatres are all signatures of the unique geology of Bryce Canyon National Park and we'll discover them today. Set below an ever-changing sky, the colours of the rocks seem to continuously change with the light.​

​Today is a day of exploration of the sheer cliffs, deep chasms and rock formations of Zion National Park. In complete contrast to the sheer natural beauty of Zion are the bright lights of Las Vegas, which is where we'll head next. Why not join your Tour Manager for a tour of the city by night.
