Day 1 Los Angeles
Arrive at any time.

Enjoy free time in Santa Monica, where the hostel is located, and check out the famous pier or hit the beach. Consider booking pre-tour accommodation if you'd like to see all of the popular sights in the area.

Day 2 Los Angeles/Lake Havasu
Be on celebrity-watch while passing by a few popular sites on the way out of California's most glamourous city. Hike among the boulders and famous Joshua trees, then cool off in the crystal-clear waters of the Colorado River at Lake Havasu. (D)

Day 3 Lake Havasu/Grand Canyon
Visit the mighty Grand Canyon. Take short hikes and enjoy sunset at the edge of the canyon.

In the morning, discover something unexpected, the London Bridge, in Lake Havasu City. Continue across vast desert landscapes to one of the earth's greatest on-going geological spectacles: the Grand Canyon. Take short hikes at the most spectacular gorge in the world and enjoy a pizza dinner at the rim as you view the stunning sunset. (B, L, D)

Day 4 Grand Canyon/Las Vegas
Travel Route 66, then explore Las Vegas along the strip.

For our night in Las Vegas, we stay close to the action in a hotel in the city centre. (B)

Day 5 Las Vegas/Sierra Nevadas
Visit a land of extremes in Death Valley National Park. (L, D)

Day 6 Sierra Nevadas/Yosemite National Park
Discover Yosemite's peaks, granite domes and giant sequoias. Marvel at majestic waterfalls, lakes and meadows.

With a keen eye, you may be lucky enough to spot black bears, deer or coyotes. (B, L, D)

Day 7 Yosemite National Park/San Francisco
Catch a glimpse of the Golden Gate Bridge on the way into one of America's most popular cities. Trip ends upon arrival to San Francisco. Opt to take a cable car ride over the steep hills or rent a bike to explore the city on wheels.

There's a lot to see and do in San Francisco, and we recommend spending extra time here if you'd like to explore the city; speak to your sales agent to book extra accommodation. Haight-Ashbury, Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman's Wharf and the city's famous cable cars await you. (B, L)
