Our favourite things to see and do in United States

A sunrise walk to Delicate Arch

One of the most iconic of all Utah’s landmarks, Delicate Arch is best seen from up-close as the first rays of the sun cast their soft light on the sandstone arch. You’ll also avoid the tourist masses at this time of day and get great photos of the arch framing the beautiful La Sal mountains in the distance.

Walk the Bright Angel Trail in the Grand Canyon

Most visitors to the Grand Canyon get no further than the path that follows the west rim from one lookout point to another. For a very different viewing experience, take the Bright Angel Trail and descend over 3,000m into the canyon. It’s hot, hard work – especially the climb back out - but well worth the effort to see the canyon from such a different and breathtaking perspective.

Stare up at a giant sequoia

Sequoias are the world’s largest trees and there’s no better place to see them en masse than Sequoia National Park in California. The largest of all the trees in the park, and one of the oldest living things on the planet, is called the General Sherman. To stand at the base of its enormous trunk and stare up to the top of its branches – almost 84 metres above – is a truly humbling experience.

Explore the cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde

Home to the Ancestral Peublo people, the many cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde are incredibly impressive. The most impressive of all though is Cliff Palace with its 150 rooms. Thought to be a social, administrative and ceremonial site there are numerous rooms to explore giving a fascinating insight into the lives of the original inhabitants over 700 years ago.

Take a dip in the Grand Canyon

Lots of people can say they’ve seen the Grand Canyon but very few can say they’ve trekked to the bottom of it, let alone swam in the cooling waters under picturesque Havasupai or Mooney falls. To get this unique and dramatic perspective you need to take a multi-day trek down to Supai Lodge from where you can explore the falls, pools and trails along the canyon floor.

Cycle the White Rim Trail at Canyonlands

This classic mountain bike trail follows the edge of canyons and mesas as well as crossing high desert paths through the classic Wild West scenery of Canyonlands National Park. It takes four days to cover the 103 mile long route with frequent stops to stand and stare in wonder at the multi-hued desert landscape of rock spires, arches and buttes.

Watch the sun set from Zabriskie Point in Death Valley

Death Valley may be one of the hottest, driest and lowest places in all of North America but it’s also one of the most starkly scenic. One of the best viewpoints in all of Death Valley is Zabriskie Point. The fissures, canyons and peaks of the eroded rock of the surrounding Badlands are at their stunning best when the warm, golden glow of sunset shows them in their full glory.

Hike in Yosemite National Park

Yosemite is one of America’s great national parks with two of the most iconic rock faces anywhere in the world – El Capitan and Half Dome. From the valley floor to the highest summit, Yosemite offers a multitude of superb walking trails which will quickly take you away from the crowds and reveal the stunning scenery of tumbling falls, giant redwood trees, verdant meadows and towering granite rock that makes Yosemite one of nature’s great playgrounds.

Take a tour of San Francisco

There’s so much to see and do in San Francisco that you could spend your entire holiday here. The Golden Gate Bridge, Alacatraz, trolley rides, Lombard Street, Coit Tower and the sea lions of Fisherman’s Wharf are just some of the star attractions of this vibrant and appealing city. And, don’t forget to try some clam chowder in a sourdough bowl for a truly authentic taste of the bay.

Stroll into the Wild West at Monument Valley

Familiar from a thousand old cowboy movies, Monument Valley won’t fail to impress when first seen in real life. The iconic red-rock spires, mesas and buttes have a dramatic beauty especially when seen in the warm glow of sunrise or sunset. A short walk will take you to the foot of some of the most prominent features of the valley and leave you looking for John Wayne and Indians behind every rock pile.
