West Coast Cruiser 2020
Day 1: Los Angeles to San Diego
After meeting the group in LA, we'll head over to San Diego to get acquainted with the beaches, harbour and downtown area on a driving tour. Then: suit up for an optional taste of America's Finest City's nightlife.
Day 2: San Diego
Take your pick from two awesome optionals: monkey around at San Diego Zoo, or check out some amazing aircraft aboard the USS Midway.
Day 3: San Diego to Prescott, Arizona
Take one last look at the coast before we drive through the Mojave Desert to Prescott.
Day 4: Prescott to Grand Canyon Region
Today we roll on to the Grand Canyon region, so prepare to tick off a major bucket list experience. Just one more sleep until we get up close and personal with the canyon itself.
Day 5: Grand Canyon Region to Las Vegas, Nevada
First: a visit to the very grandest of canyons. Then: Vegas! Gaze out of the window on a driving tour of The Strip, then hop aboard a legendary Las Vegas party bus. If that’s not enough, you can opt in to hit up the clubs later, too.
Day 6: Las Vegas
We’ve got a couple of options for you: look The Strip up and down on a helicopter tour, or take a ride on the High Roller Observation Wheel.
Day 7: Las Vegas to Yosemite National Park region, California
Share your Vegas stories with the crew on the way to the Yosemite National Park region today.
Day 8: Yosemite National Park
Feast your eyes on giant sequoia trees, the Sierra Nevada mountains and the breathtaking Bridalveil Fall. We’ve got a sneaking suspicion you might just fall in love with this place.
Day 9: Yosemite National Park Region to San Francisco
From the Golden Gate Bridge to Chinatown, San Francisco is packed with iconic landmarks. See them all on today’s driving tour.
Day 10: San Francisco
Hit up North Beach, shop in Union Square, maybe even see some sea lions... the details are up to you. Tonight, there's an optional sunset catamaran cruise.
Day 11: San Francisco to Vancouver, British Columbia
There’s no time to waste, so today we’re hopping on a plane to Vancouver. Canada, here we come!
Day 12: Vancouver, British Columbia to Okanagan Region
Take in the views as we drive through Fraser Valley, over the Coquihalla Pass and into the Okanagan Valley. Wine tasting, anyone?
Day 13: Okanagan to Banff National Park, Alberta
Ready to raise that pulse? Good. Banff National Park is up next! On the way, we’ll make a stop at the oh-so beautiful Yoho National Park.
Day 14: Banff
Banff has alllll the adrenaline-fuelled optionals, including whitewater rafting, the Sulphur Mountain Gondola and heli-tours over the Columbia Icefield.
Day 15: Banff to Jasper National Park
Today's theme? Ice, ice baby! First up, we'll take a ride along the world's most scenic highway - the Icefields Parkway. Second, we'll see the Columbia Icefield - the largest ice cap south of the Arctic Circle. Third, there's an Ice Explorer tour of the Athabasca Glacier to get on board with. Defrost in Jasper tonight.
Day 16: Jasper
This place is just begging to be explored - so take the option to hire a bike and see how much land you can cover. When you're done, we've got an included trip to the hot springs to help soothe your muscles. Ahhhh.
Day 17: Jasper to Sun Peaks, British Columbia
You'll have just enough time to take a selfie with a mountain goat statue and spot the moose near Moose Lake before our date with Sun Peaks.
Day 18: Sun Peaks to Whistler
Whistler is the holy grail of ski resorts, but you'll be surprised at how much more there is to do when the snow melts. Get a load of the nightlife here - it's famous for a reason.
Day 19: Whistler
Summer is the new winter in Whistler (which is so named for the whistling hoary marmot that lives here. True story). Get your pulse racing with a spot of mountain biking or ziplining, or work on your tan at the beach (seriously) with the other off-season ski bunnies.
Day 20: Whistler
Another day in paradise? Ah, go on then! Today, you do you. Whistler is your oyster!
Day 21: Whistler to Vancouver
We'll wrap up our trip along the scenic Sea to Sky Highway to Vancouver. Cue sad faces and goodbyes. There's always Facebook (and next year!).
