Discover

The American Southwest

Fulfilling your dreams of the real American road trip, the American southwest is a vast region of open desert roads, towering red rock cliffs, Native American heritage and remote wild west towns. On fly drives to the American Southwest discover the mountain state of Utah with its capital in the clouds, Salt Lake City, and the nearby ski resort of Park City that boasts fantastic hiking in the summer. Head south through breathtaking national parks like vertiginous Zion and unique Bryce Canyon. See the Hoover Dam and stop for the night at world-famous Grand Canyon National Park – a true natural wonder. New Mexico has a rich and varied heritage, from the proud Native American people, through the Spanish colonial influence of Mexico to modern America – this melting pot state is an intriguing place with a vibrant arts scene. From the pine covered mountains of Arizona to the bright lights and crowds of Las Vegas, holidays to the American Southwest are exciting, iconic and awe inspiring.
