This route travels from Las Vegas to four of the most sensational landscapes of the southwest of the United States. On this scenic road trip, it’s the magical forces of nature that play a key role.

As soon as you leave Vegas the landscapes turn into desert plains and emptiness. Head for Springfield, which is the gateway to the otherworldly Zion National Park. Here you will find one of the most sensational and striking landscapes of the USA. The deep red colors of the largest sandstone walls in the world are a true sight to behold. Back on the road you will be delighted with one of the most scenic desert drives of the USA connecting the two National Parks. With its deep red, golden and white towering rock spires and arches Bryce Canyon National Park is a place like not other. Offering stunning contrast to the green forest and clear blue skies the fascinating rock tower hoodoos are best taken in from different pullouts. Continue to the world famous red spindles of Monument Valley another natural wonder that offers spectacular panoramas of striking beauty. Before heading back to Las Vegas the signature natural attraction of the USA: The Grand Canyon, will be a dessert.
