There aren't many places on this planet more majestic than America's great National Parks. And if you want to see them in all their glory, this is the trip for you. What does that mean? It means dinner under the starlit skies of Zion (glamping in luxe Under Canvas tents). It means stumbling along the towering red cliffs and winding trails of Bryce Canyon, before finishing the evening with some s'mores. It means hiking and wildlife spotting in Yellowstone, and it means an exclusive Navajo led tour of Antelope Canyon with exclusive access to their private lands and beauty spots & they even show us their customs. It basically means, then, the trip of a lifetime, and the best way to experience America's famed beauty spots all in one go.
Location: Las Vegas, Zion National Park
Accommodation: Under Canvas
Welcome to Vegas! We'll depart this morning to somewhere decidedly more tranquil: Bryce National Park.Heading to Bryce Canyon, we’ll admire this unique organic amphitheatre with its red, orange and white spires. You could opt to hike through the hoodoos (the towering rock formations) before this evening when we'll head to another spectacular setting, and our home for the next two nights...Welcome to our special stay: Under Canvas glamping tents. This is the ultimate way to stay close to nature in Zion, without losing our creature comforts.
Location: Zion National Park
Journeying into the Zion Canyon, our jaws will drop at the towering white, pink and red sandstone cliffs. We'll spend most of the day here so pack some snacks and wear your best boots to get the most out of the day. There's no shortage of trails of all different levels not to mention restaurants and cafes and a comprehensive visitor centre if you're looking for a little guidance. Back at our Glamping Special Stay this afternoon, there's time for you to book a massage or just simply chill out, as the local birdlife provide the tunes. We've never felt so darn American.
Location: Zion National Park, Salt Lake City
Accommodation: Tru Midvale

On the road again today, with some great scenery to keep you entertained. A lunch stop in Garden City - make sure you get a raspberry shake - and then it's in to Jackson, our base for Yellowstone National Park.The Grand Tetons Mountain Range rises above a scene rich with abundant wildlife, pristine lakes, and spectacular mountain peaks. Take a walk to Inspiration Point or enjoy a scenic stroll around Jenny Lake while gazing up in awe at the surrounding landscape.We'll head to Jackson and it's all about the cowboys here, it's fair to say we're doing Jackson the way it's supposed to be done. Yeehaa!
Location: Jackson Hole

We've got a full day in Yellowstone ahead of us. Can you believe it?We won't mess around ticking all of the Yellowstone bucket list boxes. Hiking = check. Beautiful mountain scenery = check. Mud Volcano, Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, Midway Geyser Station (where you can see the Grand Prismatic Spring), Old Faithful Geyser = check. Bison, bears, moose, elk = check.After a full day in Yellowstone National Park we head back to the hotel for the night.
Location: Jackson Hole, Salt Lake City
We're headed back to Salt Lake City today for some much needed R&R.We're all probably exhausted at this stage, but there are still many brilliant coffeehouses and restaurants to explore in this fascinating city.
Location: Salt Lake City, Page
Accommodation: Baymont Hotel
We're headed to Page today, with a special surprise on the way...The lake laps gently against rainbow coloured cliffs, and the water is calling our names. Fancy a dip?Arriving in Page, we're SO ready for some more adventures in nature.
We'll all be feeling very privileged this morning with an included Navajo experience. These generous people have given us a private slot to tour their canyon and horseshoe bend, and the privilege of being the ONLY travellers allowed on private Navajo land. We'll get to feast our eyes on the Navajo slot canyon that's quieter and more colourful than the public version - perfect for those solo snaps. What a treat. Feeling grateful, we'll follow our guide as they show us traditional hogons, and we'll get to fill our camera rolls up of the iconic horseshoe bend. Midday is for sheltering from the Utah sun so stroll the streets of Page and grab some lunch or visit one of the local museums and info centres. This afternoon, why not tick one final bucket list item and land on a butte with your very own chopper ride to the tallest of them all, Tower Butt? You'll literally feel on top of the world! It's back to the hotel for some pure relaxation before one final night together. Pure magic, every single second.
