This 14-night self-drive getaway will take you to some of the most natural wonders of the USA as you visit incredible spots including Salt Lake City, Jackson Hole, Yellowstone, Vail, Denver and plenty more.
Your off the beaten track self-drive holiday begins in Utah, where you’ll spend three nights in Salt Lake City, Utah’s charming capital city and the perfect basecamp for your stay in Utah – known as natures playground. Spend time exploring the city or enjoy a day at the Great Salt Lake for a guaranteed adventure. From Great Lake State Park, hike Antelope Island and see the animals that call the area home and, if you’re feeling brave, go for a float in some of the saltiest water in the world!
Stretch your legs on a hiking or biking adventure in the Rocky Mountains’ top destinations, including the famous Sundance Mountain Resort, which hosts the prestigious Sundance Film Festival each year. Nearby national parks, such as Arches National Park and Capitol Reef National Park are only a daytrip away. Why not try something different during your time in Salt Lake City and explore the desert by hot-air balloon and the forest on horseback? You won’t be disappointed.
From here, you’ll head back on the road and continue North through Utah and into Wyoming to Jackson Hole, a picture-perfect town located in a valley situated between the beautiful peaks of the Teton Mountains. Your two nights here can be spent embracing your inner cowboy spirit in ‘the last of the old west’ visiting the local rodeo and cowboy style watering holes.
After this, you’ll continue North to stunning Yellowstone. Yellowstone National Park is home to dramatic canyons, gushing geysers, including the famous Old Faithful, rushing rivers and abundant forests. Your two nights in Yellowstone will be full of adventure, with something to offer all types of holidaymakers! Visit the famous multi-coloured Grand Prismatic Spring, watch the wildlife in Lamar Valley or enjoy a scenic boat tour, go kayaking or fishing at Yellowstone Lake.
After two nights, it’s time to hit the road and step into the world of the Wild West in the city of Cody. Built by the legendary showman William “Buffalo Bill” Cody, this Old West town offers travellers an authentic western experience. Visit the world-class Buffalo Bill Center of the West for rodeo re-enactments and a fascinating living history museum with frontier buildings. From here, venture out to the range to see wild mustangs. End the day with dinner at the iconic Irma Hotel and enjoy a country music show nearby.
Your next stop is Casper, a wild western city found in the heart of Wyoming. Boasting picturesque Western scenery, the city of Casper has plenty to offer all types of holidaymakers, from incredible hiking trails to a vibrant urban life. Uncover the beautiful walking trails of Casper Mountain, enjoy a horseback ride along the Oregon Trail, kayak the Fremont Canyon or simply explore the lovely shops and delicious dining options in downtown Casper.
After one night in Casper you’ll continue onto the charming town of Vail, one of the leading mountain resort communities in North America, where you’ll spend two nights. While Vail boasts popular ski slopes during the winter months, this beautiful town has plenty to offer visitors once the snow melts. Take the Eagle Bahn Gondola up the mountain and enjoy incredible panoramic views of Vail Valley – don’t forget your camera! From here, spend time exploring Vail Mountain through the beautiful hiking trails accessible from the Gondola. If you’re looking for an adrenaline-fueled, warm-weather activity, take a Whitewater rafting trip. Not for the faint hearted, Vail’s Whitewater rafting facility has something to offer all levels. In need of some down time? Avid golfers say the thinner air affects how your ball flies. Try high-altitude golfing for yourself at one of Vail’s beautiful golf courses.
The next and final stop on your American West Adventure Fly Drive is the city of Denver, where you’ll spend two nights. Denver perfectly combines epic sports, delicious dining, high-class art and the great outdoors into one amazing city. Spend your time here exploring Denver’s vibrant culture, in one of the city’s many art museums or, pay a visit to Molly Brown House Museum and learn all about the Titanic survivor’s years as an actress and a civil-rights activist in her beautiful Victorian home. Take a day trip and hit the trails around the areas of Golden and Boulder. Whether you choose an easy-going loop on Lookout Mountain or a rugged climb in Eldorado Canyon State Park and around the striking sandstone formations known as the Flatirons, you’ll be treated to stellar views.
