Itinerary

DAY 1 - 3: LOS ANGELES

Your nature trip through California starts in Los Angeles. Here you have 2 nights to just relax and get used to the new time zone. When you arrive in Los Angeles, you will pick up your rental car, check in at the hotel and so on. The second day can be used to relax on Venice Beach or Santa Monica, both of which are two wonderful places. If you want to experience an urban atmosphere before all of the nature begins, then you can drive to Hollywood and see the Hollywood Walk of Fame with stars’ names on the sidewalk, or Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills for some shopping, or see the amazing views of the city from the Griffith Observatory. If you want the trip to start with a little action, then you can visit Universal Studios, which is a fast-paced amusement park where you can see the film scenes from many of the major Hollywood movies and series.

DAY 3 – 5: GRAND CANYON

(490 miles – 7-hours-and-25-minute drive)

Now here the nature really comes! You have a long drive ahead of you from Los Angeles to the Grand Canyon. However, it is a beautiful trip through the Mojave Desert, and even on part of the old Route 66, both of which are perfect for stopping to take pictures and do a little sightseeing. You can also drive through the city of Selingman, which is a quintessential old American city. Here you can see retro cars parked outside the old gas stations.

When you arrive at the Grand Canyon, you have the opportunity to explore the crazy and beautiful natural area that is quite unique. You can explore the Grand Canyon on various hiking trails, see all of Grand Canyon in a helicopter, or ride a donkey to the bottom of the canyon – the possibilities are endless.

DAY 5 – 7: PAGE ANTELOPE CANYON

(134 miles – 2-hours-and-30-minute drive)
After a short four-hour drive from the Grand Canyon, it is time to explore Antelope Canyon, located near the town of Page. While on your way to Page, we recommend you visit Horseshoe Bend, which is a beautiful stop on the road, as well as Lake Powell.

We highly recommend that you spend your second day in Antelope Canyon, which is the most visited in the area. Here you should take one of the organized tours, so you can experience the canyon close up in a whole new way. Discover the rays of light creeping down through the narrow gap when you walk down into the canyon between the wavy sandstone walls. TIP: Remember to book a tour from home, as they are often sold out.

In the Navajo language, the Upper Antelope Canyon is called “Tse bighanilini” which means “the place where water runs through rocks”, which is a very fitting name for the area. Several Indian tribes actually live in the area, and you can even book tours where the guide is the Indian Chief Tsosie. He plays a pan-pipe and tells extraordinary stories about the area.

DAY 7 – 9: BRYCE CANYON NATIONAL PARK

(150 miles – 2-hours-and-32-minute drive)

Then it’s on to Bryce Canyon National Park, which is located in southwestern Utah. The park is located 2,500 meters above sea level and is 145 km2. Due to the slightly “isolated” location of the park, it does not have the same number of visitors as the larger and slightly more popular parks like theGrand Canyon. This just means that there are better opportunities to explore the area on your own, and feel a special closeness with nature.

Within the park lies the Bryce Canyon, which is a big “amphitheater,” where there is opportunity for exploring the canyon from above but also with the possibility of trips into the canyon.

You might want to spend one of the days taking an easier hike, where you go down into the canyon, and on the following day you can hike up to view the canyon from above. For dinner, head over to Ebeneezer’s Barn & Grill, where they serve authentic American BBQ. During dinner, you can enjoy a great stage show with cowboys swinging lassos and dancing around to John Denver.

DAY 9 - 11: ZION NATIONAL PARK

(74 miles – 1-hour-and-20-minute drive)
Now it’s on to Zion National Park, which represents an area of 593 km2. The lowest point is 1,128 meters altitude, while the highest is 2,660 meters. Zion is an ancient Hebrew word meaning “holy place” or “place to flee to.” Like many of the U.S.’s national parks, it is a place that should not be missed. It’s beautiful, green and orange cliffs, and deep valleys are a sight for sore eyes. It is stunning, and you have the opportunity to experience Zion both from above and below. There are many hikes of varying difficulty, so there is truly something for everyone.

DAY 11 - 12: DEATH VALLEY

(298 miles – 4-hours-and-42-minute drive)
From here you head to Death Valley, the lowest point in the U.S. Here it is always warm, and is also where the warmest temperature was measured – at 56.7 degrees. Here you have a single night, and it won’t take long to discover why it’s called Death Valley. While in Death Valley, you should experience Badwater Basin, which originally got its name because of the high level of salt in the water, making it impossible to drink. The valley is no less than 100 meters below sea level, and is a great experience – even if it is desolate.

DAY 12 - 14: YOSEMITE

(293 miles – 5-hours-and-38-minute drive)
The time has come for Yosemite National Park, which is one of the largest and most famous natural parks located on this route – and in the western United States. The park contains over 4,000 different animal and plant species, not to mention the numerous waterfalls, granite cliffs, forests, desolate land, lakes and much more. If you are lucky (or unlucky) you can also encounter a bear in Yosemite, and you have the opportunity to experience this beautiful and large park with hiking paths of different difficulties.

It is a good idea to drive early in the morning, because it is very peaceful and beautiful in the park, and we recommend that you do not visit on the weekends, because many Americans plan their trip to the park on the weekends.

DAY 14 - 17: SAN FRANCISCO

(187 miles – 4-hours-and-10-minute drive)

Last stop is San Francisco, where you will stay for three nights. If you wish, you can spend a day driving to the scenic wine country, Napa Valley, located just north of San Francisco. Here you have the chance to go wine tasting at some of the beautiful old vineyards, where you can also see how to harvest and make wine, and just enjoy the fields and atmosphere.

You should also visit the most popular attractions in San Francisco.  They are popular for a reason! For example, use one day to see Alcatraz, Fisherman’s Wharf, and Pier 39 with sea lions lying around and sunbathing. Also, visit some of the different areas of the city, each of which are unique – including Castro District, known for its flamboyance and openness, and Haight-Ashbury, where the hippy movement started in the 1960s.

After three wonderful days in San Francisco, it is time to return home.
