The national parks of Southwest America offer superb walking through iconic landscapes straight out of a classic western movie. Or step into Yellowstone and the Rockies for unique scenery and incredible wildlife encounters.

When is the best time to travel to the Grand Canyon?

When is the best time to travel to Alaska?

Our climate charts will give you an idea of the weather conditions of the southwest USA and in Alaska.

The majority of the landscape in Vegas is dry, dusty and rocky, with plenty of sunshine. In the height of the summer months temperatures soar in the desert states of the American Southwest - reaching up to 40 degrees during the day. It is therefore best to visit during spring and autumn when daytime temperatures will be cooler, but still bright and sunny with very little rainfall. Our Grand Canyon & the American Wild West walking holiday, departs in these more temperate months making the daily walks in Arizona and Utah extremely pleasant, with very little required in the way of warm and waterproof layers.

If you can't make the dates of our group departures, then take a private departure on dates to suit you, or we can create a Tailor Made holiday to the Grand Canyon, especially for you and your family or friends.
