It goes from the thousands of lights of Las Vegas to one of the seven natural wonders of the world, the Grand Canyon. See this natural wonder not only from the best vantage points, but hike down to Plateau Point or take a helicopter ride (optional) over the canyon and the Colorado River. Continue into Navajo country and marvel at the beauty of Monument Valley. Afterwards, the "Mars of the Earth" is on the agenda: Archer's National Park is crisscrossed by red rocks. Following the "Million Dollar Highway" we drive through the Rocky Mountains past hot springs, rivers and lakes to the "Mile High City" Denver. The journey is the destination and the spacious overland vehicle offers plenty of room, tables for playing cards, individual luggage compartments for daypack or camera equipment and wood for the campfire is also on board!

GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK
The Grand Canyon is one of the seven natural wonders of the world. It is 446 km long, up to 29 km wide and up to 1800 m deep. Here you can watch the California Condor, explore two billion ancient rock paintings and of course capture the canyon's rock formations with its diverse colors in far too many photos. We offer hikes of varying difficulty levels - in addition to the IMAX Grand Canyon show, "The Hidden Secret," which once again gives a different perspective of the Grand Canyon.
Helicopter Flight $270
Monument Valley has been and continues to be the backdrop for numerous feature films and commercials. The famous rock formations are located in the middle of Navajo country, which is now home to many "Navajo Indians". We explore both the incredible scenery and the Navajo culture.
MOAB/ARCHES NATIONAL PARK
Arches National Park is one of five national parks in Utah and is home to over 2000 rock arches. Various hikes to Delicate Arch, Devil's Garden or Balancing Rock are possible or you can choose one of the many optional activities: e.g. one of the best mountain biking trails is located here, as the sandpaper-like surface of the rocks offers best grip for downhill mountain biking!
Hummer Tours, Mountain Biking, Scenic Flights, Hot Air Balloon Flights
We follow the Colorado River through the Rocky Mountains and pass idyllic small villages, hot springs and mountain passes. The typical "Indian Summer" or golden autumn shows itself in its full glory at this time of year.
Denver may be one of the largest cities in the US, but has an incredibly laid-back atmosphere: museums, music scene and even a downtown amusement park! And whether you're sitting on one of the many patios at the many cafes or breweries, or watching a baseball game, the Rocky Mountains are always the backdrop!
