From the wilds of Yosemite National Park to the hip streets of New York City, the USA has its share of big adventures, but choosing the right one for you can be tricky. Finding a tour operator with 60 readymade itineraries saves a lot of hassle: Grand American Adventures’ small group tours provide a more intimate experience of the USA, with a highly trained tour leader helping you explore the icons as well as the off -the-radar sights, across a range of wildlife, hiking, cultural, cruising and family trips.
And then there’s getting there. Norwegian (voted ‘Europe’s best long-haul low-cost airline’ in 2016 at the World Airline Awards) has direct routes to the USA’s biggest hubs, from LA to New York – its high fuel efficiency a plus for greener travellers. Together the pair offer the chance to win a spot on Grand American Adventures’ Western USA Highlights trip.
The perfect expression of Grand American Adventures small-group tour ethos, the Western USA Highlights tour begins in the glitz of Los Angeles, before leaving for Arizona’s authentically rugged desert expanses. Here – particularly in the city of Prescott – cowboy culture reigns. Share a shot of whiskey and tales of the range, then make for one of the country’s biggest (quite literally) icons.
Scope the Grand Canyon at high altitude on an optional helicopter ride, followed by views of its jawdropping depths. Be sure to stick around for dusk, when its rusty rocks are bathed in a sinking amber light. From there, track a stretch of the legendary Route 66 to the neon lights of casino-lined Las Vegas, before rounding off your trip in the verdant forests and steep granite peaks of Yosemite National Park and then buzzy San Francisco – taking in the iconic Golden Gate Bridge.
With Grand American Adventures taking care of all the mechanics of your expertly led trip – like the logistics and driving – you can experience a bit of the real America, but without any stress. So grab a Norwegian flight, let the others do all the work for you, and focus on having a wild and wonderful journey through the USA’s iconic West.
Grand American Adventures and Norwegian are offering the chance to win two places on the 8-day Western USA Highlights tour (beginning 1 September 2017), including economy flights and post-tour accommodation (with two extra nights in San Francisco). To be in with a chance of winning, simply answer this question:
