Arizona & Vegas

Arizona is home to many Native American Historic sites and ghost towns from the gold and silver mining days whilst being blessed with jaw-dropping scenery including The Grand Canyon.

The Canyon is 277 miles long, up to 18 miles wide and attains a depth over over a mile. It has evolved as the Colorado River has cut its channels through layers of rock whilst the surrounding Plateau has been uplifted over 17 million years. There are 3 main Rim viewing areas, the most accessible of which is West Rim, including the Sky Walk, a 3 hour drive from Vegas, whilst South Rim is thought to offer the most dramatic views and North Rim is more remote but well placed for visitors looking to combine a Canyon experience with Zion and Bryce Parks or Lake Powell. Zion and Bryce (located in Utah) also feature towering sandstone monoliths, mysterious slot canyons and hanging gardens whilst Lake Powell offers the opportunity to hang out on a house boat for a couple of nights with a jet ski in tow!

Pheonix is the largest City, is adjacent to Scottsdale where we feature many luxurious resorts ideal for relaxing after touring the sights, and is home to over 200 golf courses and many galleries and museums. Nearby is the Sedona Desert, where a host of fun activities can be enjoyed from night-time treks to hot air ballooning.

Further South, Tucson offers the opportunity to stay on a Dude Ranch, offering accommodation amongst natural desert surroundings with warm and welcoming Southwestern style.

Vegas is located in the neighbouring state of Nevada. The array of sometimes bizarely themed hotels along the Strips certainly makes this location unique and it can also form a base for exploring the Canyon.
