    San Francisco - Yosemite - Bass Lake

    Drive to majestic Yosemite National Park, one of the most beautiful parks in the state of California. Yosemite surprises by its fresh Alpine landscapes with pine forests and magnificent waterfalls. Sheer white monolithic cliffs tower over the valley. You will discover Half Dome, Yosemite Valley, Bridalveil Falls and Yosemite Falls, in the spring in particular, as well as a pioneer village in the southern part of the park.

    02 May 19 

         

    Bakersfield - Death Valley - Las Vegas

    This morning you will descend to impressive Death Valley approximately 320 feet below sea level. This area is so desolate that the first cowboys who ventured here described it as “no stream to drink from, no tree to hang from”. You will discover Badwater Point, the lowest spot in the valley, Furnace Creek, and the Stovepipe sand dunes. Followed by a visit of the Borax Museum withmining displays of the history of borax mining in Death Valley. Overnight at The Padre Hotel.

    Las Vegas / Grand Canyon West Rim

    Morning drive to the Grand Canyon West Rim, sacred land of the Hualapai Native Americans. This will most certainly be one of the highlights of your trip. The Grand Canyon is the result of millions of years of wind and water erosion. It's an endless expanse of shapes, colors and impenetrable shadow. Upon arrival, you board a hop-on hop-off shuttle to visit the park (public shuttle without possibility to privatize). Throughout the visit, you will make stops at Guano Point, Eagle Point, and Hualapai Ranch. A lunch voucher will be provided, which can be redeemed at any of the vista point concessionaires.

    Vancouver, British Columbia

    Home to North America’s best Asian dining scene and the culinary capital of Canada, Vancouver’s cosmopolitan streets are filled with restaurants and drink holes to please every appetite. With an emphasis on grassroots art, those with a passion for finding hidden gems will have their work cut out in attempting to see all that Vancouver has to offer.

    09 May 19 

         

    Juneau, Alaska

    America’s most secluded state-capital and perhaps most strange, Juneau is a contradictory wonder that can only be accessed by boat or plane. Alaska’s second-largest city borders both a waterway that never freezes and beneath an icefield that never melts.

  •      

    10 May 19 

         

    Skagway, Alaska

    Skagway was composed during the gold-rush era, resulting in its architecture to have a distinctly classic look, which is why many buildings are part of the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park. Check out the Mascot Saloon Museum, one of Skagway’s first cabin and brothels near-perfectly preserved. 

  •      

    11 May 19 

         

    Glacier Bay 

    Composed from eleven tidewater glaciers pouring out of the surrounding mountains, the Glacier Bay National Park features a myriad of natural wildlife living between the diversely sized and coloured icebergs.

    12 May 19 

         

    Ketchikan, Alaska

    First founded in 1885 as a site for canning foods, particularly Salmon, Ketchikan has since became a very popular tourism port with 650,000 visitors per day during summer months. With a backdrop of forest hills and a port bustling with local life, it’s no wonder Ketchikan is so popular.

  • Las Vegas

    The energy of Las Vegas is legendary: Elvis look-alikes performing in packed-out sparkly casinos, the excitement of the blackjack table, it’s a completely blissful kind of madness. Only in Vegas can you spend an evening in Rome and wake up in Paris, the previous night’s adventures slightly blurred by perfectly prepared cocktails and the endless rhythm of the city streets.

  • Golden gate

    San Francisco

    San Francisco is the cultural capital of Northern California, known for its famous skyscraper cityscape, the iconic Golden Gate Bridge spanning three miles from San Francisco to the Marin County headlands across the Pacific Ocean. There’s so much to do, hop in a cable car and explore the glorious city, your exploring may lead you to the Exploratorium: a magnificent museum incorporating science with art. Head down to San Francisco Bay, take a tour just offshore out to Alcatraz Island, and explore the abandoned prison once holding some of America’s most notorious criminals, from Al Capone to Julius and Ethel Rosenberg.
