The USA and Canada are such vast countries that seeing everything at once is nigh on impossible. Time to call in the experts. We have scoured the continent looking for the key sights that form the perfect Classic trips, providing the perfect introduction to this vast and varied continent.
The South West boasts some iconic sights, and driving is one of the best ways to see them. We have put together a self-drive itinerary that allows you to pick up your car in one place and drop it off in another. On this Classics journey your adventure starts in Phoenix, from where you'll drive through the desert canyons that Arizona are so well known for, stopping off in chic Sedona for lunch before reaching the iconic Grand Canyon. You'll have the chance to see the IMAX theatre or go on a narrated helicopter tour of the canyon, and your private guide will take you to vista points and trails rarely used by other visitors. Leaving the Grand Canyon behind continue your journey to the Colorado River, along to Lake Powell and onto Monument Valley, where you'll be met by a guide who will lead you through the unusual rock formations that are characteristic of the area.
The South West is famous for its National Parks, and Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon National Park are two gems on the Colorado Plateau in Southern Utah, filled with exceptional peaks and spires. A private guide will take you around the dramatic parkland and back at your ranch you can enjoy horse riding in the extensive grounds, hiking or even buffalo viewing. The final stop on this magnificent drive is Las Vegas - either fly home from here or we recommend extending your stay and exploring Sin City.
In Canada, our Classics journeys show you the great outdoors and all that comes with it, with you behind the wheel - from hiking under the snow-capped mountains in Banff to searching for wildlife such as bear and moose as you drive through the Rockies. Spectacular scenery is a given and you'll experience the turquoise waters of Moraine Lake, the Icefields Parkway and stunning natural scenery of Jasper National Park. A highlight of the trip is perhaps the Rocky Mountaineer train to Vancouver, stopping in Kamloops en-route. This scenic journey takes you through the interior of British Columbia, past the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies, through the Rainbow Range, Fraser Canyon, Hell's Gate, the fertile farmland of Fraser Valley and finally Vancouver where you will have a couple of days to explore this metropolitan centre.
