Of all the roads you take in life make sure a few are made of dirt. This is the land of spacious skies, amber plains & purple mountains majesty. From the Grand Canyon, to Yellowstone & Yosemite National Parks; we dare you to go one day without thinking, “Dang. Now that’s an awesome view.” So take a hike. Explore your own backyard & see for yourself why it’s called America the beautiful. You can forget the map & compass too. With Contiki, we take care of all the nitty gritty details. You’re welcome.
It’s a Grand Ol’ Canyon
This place rocks with FOMO-worthy scenic views as far as the eye can see. Words could never truly describe this iconic landmark. It’s more than just an endless horizon of gorgeousness; it’s a feeling of serene, undisturbed freedom. Get a birds-eye view on a helicopter ride, opt to rent a bike and cruise the rim, or delve deep into canyon with your new travel buddies. Either way, Contiki is one of the only travel companies that stay directly in the National Park so the canyon is literally right outside your door.
Who would have guessed that a massive volcanic eruption would create such an amazing place. Get your cameras ready for Old Faithful, the most famous geyser in the world. Experience the blast again & again or take a stroll through guzzling mud pots that make you feel like you’re walking on the surface of a distant planet. At the end of the day, witness one of Yellowstone’s thermal pools. Not too shabby.
Get ready for Adventure. Yosemite National Park is famous for its trails & its wildlife: Black bears, deer, coyotes, etc. If you’re lucky, you may even catch a few of these incredible creatures in a fuzzy photo from afar. Walk or bike along towering woods, drastic mountain slopes, and the tallest waterfall in California. Take a dip if you’re keen. You’ll forget all about the chaos of the concrete jungle here. This is nature at its finest.
