Ride roads that wind through forests of wooden giants, snake through red rock landscapes of towering arches, summit continent-dividing peaks, pass bison gazing golden prairies, travel back to the time of the Old West, skirt the edge of natural wonders, and meet the streets of some of the world’s most iconic cities. Yosemite waterfalls, Rocky Mountain pinnacles, Yellowstone geysers, Mississippi canoes, Chicago pizzas, Detroit Motown, Niagara Falls cascades, Finger Lakes wineries, New York skyscrapers, D.C. monuments, Nashville music, and New Orleans gumbo – that’s just a taste of what you'll experience. This overland odyssey has something for everyone, so jump aboard.

Highlights

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
