Highlights & Activities

California Tour Highlights

Yosemite National Park
This is an absolute haven for hikers with over 800 miles of recognised trails from which to choose from against a backdrop of waterfalls, canyons and some of the most fantastical forests that you're ever likely to encounter.
Death Valley National Park
One of the world’s hottest, driest and lowest places, don’t let the name put you off – Death Valley is packed with stunning landscapes to awe and amaze. Colourful rocks, sand dunes and salt flats are all found right here.
San Francisco
California boasts some of the world's hottest cities in every sense imaginable and no trip is complete without at least checking out San Francisco. The Golden Gate Bridge and Fisherman's Wharf are a must. This west-coast heavyweight has got the lot.
Los Angeles
Spend some time star-spotting on your way along Hollywood Boulevard in the glitzy ‘City of Angels’. Head to Beverly Hills for a spot of designer shopping, or simply relax and take in the lively local buzz of Venice Beach.
Lake Tahoe
As the largest lake of its kind in North America it's no surprise that the shores of Lake Tahoe provide endless biking and hiking trails within a seriously scenic setting. As you'd imagine, water sports are pretty popular too.
