Intinerary

Travelsphere’s Private Chauffeur door-to-door airport transfer collects you from home for your flight to Denver today. On arrival we’ll transfer you to your overnight hotel. 

Find out more about Denver here.

Your adventure begins in earnest today with a journey to Rapid City. On the way we’re going to stop at Cheyenne and the former military and trading outpost of Fort Laramie. This is where chief Red Cloud signed the treaty that gave the supposedly worthless Black Hills to the Sioux. Just six years later, Custer discovered gold in the Black Hills, prompting the Gold Rush and ultimately causing the Battle of Little Bighorn.​
There’s a treat in store tonight as we head to Fort Hays Chuckwagon supper and cowboy music show located on the film set of ‘Dances with Wolves’.

Meals included: breakfast and dinner

Your day begins with a visit to Mount Rushmore, with its famous granite sculptures of Presidents Roosevelt, Lincoln, Washington and Jefferson. You’re also going to see the Crazy Horse Memorial this morning.
The highlights keep on coming today with an afternoon tour of Badlands National Park. Here you’ll discover an eerie world which has been carved over millions of years by the forces of nature.​

Meals included: breakfast

You’re heading into ‘wild west’ territory today with a drive through the Black Hills to Deadwood, a town created on the back of the Gold Rush. The entire city is a national historic landmark, and there’s time for you to have a good look around before we head to Sheridan for the night.​

Meals included: breakfast

The highlight of your day is a visit to the historic battlefield site of the Battle of Little Bighorn. A guided tour gives you the chance to relive Custer’s Last Stand and get a fascinating insight into one of the most famous battles in western history.​

Meals included: breakfast

After your tour today you’ll be able to say that you have set foot in the world’s first national park. Yellowstone is a wonderland of spouting geysers, hot springs, boiling pools and bubbling mud pots. On your tour you’ll see the extraordinary Yellowstone Canyon with its waterfall twice the height of Niagara and, of course, ‘Old Faithful’, which erupts every 93 minutes. The park is also a wildlife sanctuary with bears, elk, moose and herds of buffalo all roaming freely, so keep your eyes peeled for sightings.​

Meals included: breakfast

The next national park you’ll tick off your list is Grand Teton. Famed for its beautiful landscapes dominated by snow-capped peaks, lakes and glaciers, you can take in these exceptional sights today before we spend the night in Jackson.

Meals included: breakfast

Our next destination is Salt Lake City, and our journey here gives us further opportunities to take in stunning scenery. We’re going to make a stop at Logan Canyon, whose near-vertical walls of limestone cut through the Bear River Mountains. You’ll probably be feeling hungry by now, and our next stop at Bear Lake is where we’ll eat our picnic lunch. So find a shady spot by its turquoise waters and tuck in.​

Meals included: breakfast and lunch

You can spend today exploring Salt Lake City, which was founded by the Mormons. For easy access to the city’s most important sights, a great place to start is the central Mormon Square.
If you like, you can take an optional trip to the Great Salt Lake after which the city is named.​

Meals included: breakfast

Your next base is Cortez, which we reach via a visit to Arches National Park. When you view what is the world’s greatest concentration of red sandstone arches, you’ll understand just how it got its name!​

Meals included: breakfast

Mesa Verde National Park is also within reach from Cortez, and it’s where your tour takes you today. This archaeological masterpiece is famed for its cliff dwellings, with Cliff Palace having more than 200 rooms.​

Meals included: breakfast

Marking the point where Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Arizona converge, the monument at Four Corners is your first stop today. Next is Monument Valley, instantly recognisable as the setting for many spaghetti westerns. An optional narrated tour is available if you’d like to find out more about this fascinating destination.​

Meals included: breakfast

As highlights go, the Grand Canyon is hard to beat, and today is the day that you get to see this iconic natural wonder. It’s a breathtaking sight however viewed, but an optional flight gives you the thrilling chance to see it from the air.​  Stop just outside of the National Park and enjoy a Navajo Taco from the Native Grill supported by our Travelsphere Cares programme, before continuing to Kanab.​

There are just two more national parks to go now, and today you’ll view the spires of rock and vast natural amphitheatres that form the unique geology of Bryce Canyon. Why not join an optional stargazing tour this evening – with the clear desert skies, this really promises to be a mesmerising experience.

Meals included: breakfast

A day of contrasts begins with a tour of Zion National Park, to see sheer cliffs and mesmerising rock formations. Equally enthralling is your destination tonight, the man-made wonder that is Las Vegas, where a night tour is one option.​

Meals included: breakfast

We’ll transfer you to the airport today for your return flight to the UK.

Meals included: breakfast

You’ll arrive back in the UK today. Upon arrival, your Travelsphere Executive car and Chauffeur will be waiting for the journey home.

Additional information:

Please note: At certain times of year it is possible that Yellowstone may experience snow which may mean we need to use a different route.

Altitude: During this tour you will travel to altitudes of over 10,500ft. This should not be a problem, although everyone should take it easy at first. If you suffer from heart or respiratory conditions or have any other concerns please consult your doctor.
