I love the south west of America, it's hard to comprehend the sheer scale of this area - it has incredible views and vast open skies that seem to go on forever.

On this trip we focus on the more off-the-beaten-track trails of the great American West that you’d find hard to discover and explore without a knowledgeable guide, permits and a well-planned itinerary.

Travelling through the lands of the ancient Anasazi people we begin in Utah with memorable walks through the red-rock arches, fins and spires of Canyonlands and Arches National Parks before journeying south to Grand Gulch Primitive Area where our expert guide will uncover hidden paths to Anasazi dwellings that few people ever visit. A day’s easy rafting takes us through the canyons of the San Juan River before we enjoy the iconic western scenery of the Valley of the Gods and Monument Valley.

We hike through canyons to reach native ruins and explore three Anasazi UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Colorado and New Mexico where we will walk through impressive cliff dwellings to gain a real insight into the lives of the Ancestral Puebloans who once called them home.
