This is the ultimate American road trip. From north to south, east coast and west, experience the amazing diversity of this incredible continent. Experience Yosemite’s glistening falls, Lake Tahoe's incredibly crisp air and water, and the daunting peaks of the Rockies. Spot bears and wolves on a trek across Yellowstone National Park, come face-to-face (literally) with the giant presidents of Mount Rushmore, and camp out in the land of the Wild West. Discover the laidback local vibe of Chicago, find the American dream rising again in Detroit, then stand in awe at Niagara Falls. Bite into the Big Apple, snake through the jaw-dropping Appalachian Mountains, and take in everything from pioneer and political history to the musical legacies of Nashville and Memphis. Feel the good vibes of New Orleans, witness the legendary Grand Canyon and sacred desert landscapes of Monument Valley, and live it up in Vegas. Make your way through scorching Death Valley and the lush forests of Yosemite before returning to San Francisco. This is the best way to explore one of the most fascinating nations on earth.

Highlights

Visit seventeen states and eleven national parks in 47 days

Surrounded by snow-capped mountains and pine trees, Lake Tahoe is idyllic. Shake off the driving dust with a late afternoon dip in the alpine blue waters or relax on a sunset cruise.

Drive along the majestic Trail Ridge Road, the highest continuous paved road in the States, and stare in awe at the sweeping views of Rocky Mountain National Park in all directions. Hike though outstanding landscapes and see elk, pikas, marmots, ptarmigans and bighorn sheep.

Spend an evening on the banks of the Mississippi, Huckleberry Finn style, and rent a canoe to paddle along the famous river

Spend two nights in Yellowstone and keep your eyes open for bison, bears and even rare grey wolves

Worship at the sublime altar to Mother Nature that is Niagara Falls, taking an optional wet and wild boat cruise

Enjoy a full day to explore Washington DC. There's lots to see and do in the US capital, and most of it is free. Visit the White House, Capitol Hill and the National Mall, and feel small next to the statue of Abraham Lincoln

The Grand Canyon National Park needs no introduction. Unlike most trips, you'll spend two nights in the park so there's a full day to explore properly. See the mighty canyon up close on a variety of hikes or take a helicopter flight overhead

Towering granite cliffs, cascading waterfalls, redwood forests and epic night skies - Yosemite National Park feels like utopia. While other tour groups breeze through in a day, you'll get to visit twice, allowing plenty of time for hiking and exploring
