HighlightsExplore four of the United States' national parks and monuments, mountain bike in Moab, raft the mighty Colorado River, go canyoneering in impressive Zion National Park
DescriptionAmerica’s national parks are a gift to the world. We wrapped up four of our favourites, mixed in some high-energy outdoor thrills and put a nice little Sin City bow on them, just for you. Here, you’ll hike among the hoodoos in Bryce Canyon, refresh yourself with a river swim in Zion, marvel at the sandstone formations of Arches NP, raft the Colorado River and gape at the awesome majesty of the Grand Canyon. Add in a little R&R (yeah, right) in Las Vegas to top it all off and you’ve got yourself the perfect mix of outdoor adrenaline and downtown glitz.
