Today, bid farewell to beautiful Seattle with a transfer to the airport for your flight to Salt Lake City (pictured), the high-elevation capital of Utah. Upon arrival, transfer to the city of Idaho Falls, named after beautiful man-made dams and colossal waterfalls.
Commence your tour with a road trip to Grand Teton National Park for a picture-perfect scenic photo shoot at Colter Bay Village overlooking the beautiful shores of Jackson Lake with the majestic Grand Tetons as a backdrop. Before long, you will enter the world-renowned Yellowstone National Park, the world’s first national park and a vast wilderness recreation area atop a volcanic hot spot characterised by hydrothermal geysers, hot springs, mud pots and fumaroles. Begin your tour of Yellowstone at the Old Faithful cone geyser shooting water over 37 metres in the air. Then stop at the Midway Geyser Basin to see the Grand Prismatic Spring, the country’s largest hot spring and prepare to be mesmerised by the vivid colouration thanks to the heat-loving bacteria that produce colours ranging from green to red lining the edge of the deep blue spring water. Time permitting, take a look at the Fountain Paint Pot named after the reds, yellows and browns of the bubbling mud.
Continue your journey through Yellowstone National Park at Norris Geyser Basin, the hottest geyser basin in Yellowstone comprised of two distinct sections: The Back Basin in a forest setting and the Porcelain Basin characterised by a lack of vegetation. Then ascend the steep stairway of Uncle Tom’s Trail at the ‘Grand Canyon of Yellowstone’ for an observation deck view of the 400 foot tall Lower Yellowstone Falls. Continue by the picturesque Yellowstone Lake towards the resort town of Jackson in the Jackson Hole valley in Teton County, famous for cowboy bars and western souvenir shops among many Old West allures. Return to Salt Lake City to rest overnight.
Begin the day driving by the beautiful landscape and historic buildings of Temple Square in the heart of Salt Lake City before arriving at historic long-standing Cove Fort, constructed of volcanic rock. Then gain an everlasting impression of some of the world’s most beautiful scenery at the Sunset Point of Bryce Canyon National Park, characterised by its vast expanse of orange and red sandstone cliffs sculpted by nature into ‘hoodoo’ pillars. Cap off the day at one of United States’ most scenic canyons with a road trip through Zion Canyon Scenic Drive to Zion Lodge in Zion National Park whose steep canyons, stone towers and lush vegetation are carved over millions of years by rushing streams.
Stop at Hoover Dam for a perfect photo opportunity along the Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge. Then proceed to one of the Seven Wonders of the Industrial World, the majestic Grand Canyon. As you gaze out from the West Rim at Eagle Point and Guano Point, you are viewing 2 billion years of geological history. Millions of people each year stand in awe at the canyon and leave with a sense of fulfilment and realisation that they have witnessed nature at her finest. Time permitting, take a Grand Canyon Skywalk (optional admission at your own expense) for a 720 degree view of the Canyon on the tallest man-made structure in the world, a horseshoe-shaped cantilever bridge on the very edge of the Grand Canyon West Rim, with nothing but glass separating you and the Colorado River 4,000 feet below. A complete change of scenery awaits when you arrive in the heart of ‘Sin City’ Las Vegas, a neon desert oasis offering a collection of bright lights, shopping malls, iconic dancing fountains, famous hotels and innumerable casinos.
Enjoy the morning and early afternoon at your own pace and leisure to explore the entertainment capital of the world. Then in the mid-afternoon, bid farewell to beautiful Las Vegas with a transfer to the airport for your homebound or onward flight via connecting cities.
