  • Location: Lake Havasu to Yosemite National Park

3 - Lake Havasu
This is A-grade Arizona. We drive to Salvation Mountain from the movie 'Into the Wild', a surprising colourful desert oasis which begs to be photographed and tells the story of one man's belief, plus a photo stop at the majestic sand dunes. We continue on to our final destination for the evening, Lake Havasu. Why not cool off with a refreshing dip and check out the original London Bridge. We kid you not! Accommodation: Camping included
4-5 - Grand Canyon
Wow! You may be lost for words. Nothing you have ever seen before will prepare you for this spectacular site! Hike from the forest above to the desert below, red rock to white powder or take an optional helicopter flight for a birds-eye view and marvel at the brilliant colours. The canyon depths are nothing short of mind-blowing. Then again so is the sunrise and that's free. Accommodation: Camping included
6-7 - Las Vegas
We travel along a section of the original Route 66, which at one time, was the only way to travel on the great American road trip, and stop at the town of Seligman. As the desert city comes into view, luminous Vegas ups the ante - the greatest show on earth! Catch some Vegas rays by the pool then dive into The Strip in style on an optional limousine tour. Indulge in an all you can eat buffet, take in a show or people-watch. Enjoy the neon attractions many hotel casinos have to offer, take an optional helicopter flight down The Strip or gamble in world class casinos before hitting the clubs. Accommodation: Hotels included in tour price
8-10 - Sierra Nevada & Yosemite National Park
Wind through peaks with views across the Sierra Nevadas that will have you itching to get your trekking boots on, and there is no better place than one of nature's greatest back yards, Yosemite National Park.

Making our way to San Francisco today (be sure to not call it Frisco as the locals hate it) we visit the Iron Door Saloon in Groveland. It was built in 1852 and is the oldest continuously operating saloon in California. Upon arrival to San Francisco, enjoy a driving tour visiting Haight Ashbury, the area that parked thousands of hippies to 'Turn on, tune in, drop out' and the chance to walk over the Golden Gate Bridge. During your free day you will fall for San Francisco's charm while touring Chinatown, Fisherman's Wharf before an included cruise on the bay for an unforgettable sunset, before bar hopping 'til the tiny hours. Mission and Marina Districts usually check the right boxes. Accommodation: Hotels included in tour price

Next we drive to see the iconic waterfall viewing point of Big Sur State Park before continuing onto our overnight campground on the California Coast and watch the sunset over the sparkling Pacific Ocean. Accommodation: Camping included
14 - Santa Barbara & Los Angeles
We drive to Santa Barbara, located between the steeply rising Santa Ynez Mountains and the Pacific Ocean and has been described as the "American Riviera". Enjoy free time to absorb the last of the California sunshine on the beach, explore the lively pier area or hit the many shops. In the afternoon we head back to 'La La Land' for a chance to strut your stuff down the star studded Hollywood Boulevard and for a final holiday snap of the famous Hollywood sign.

Meals

On our camping tours, our groups share in the preparation and cooking of the food. Supplies, excluding soft drinks and alcohol, are purchased from the food kitty, and each member of the group pays US$10 per day en route. This covers three meals on most days whilst camping; eating fresh foods that we purchase as we travel to satisfy the international flavour of the group - a healthy way to travel at an unbeatable price. Naturally this does not cover hotel stops or when tour groups sometimes sample regional cuisine at local restaurants.

FAQ

1. How many people will there be on the tour?

Between 6 and 13 people with one tour leader.

Close

2. What is the average age of the tour participants?

The age range is 18-38 and early to mid twenties are the most common ages.

Close

3. How fit do I need to be?

There will be a fair bit of walking and hiking on the tour as well as the opportunity to do lots of activities. So you should be relatively fit but dont forget that activities are optional so you can do the trip at your own pace.

Close

4. Will I be the only person travelling on my own?

No, the majority of our travellers are solo travellers and you will meet lots of people on your tour!

Close

5. What if I have never camped before?

Don't worry, your fantastic tour leader will show you how to put your tent up and use your camping equipment.

Close

6. How much money do I need to bring on the tour?

For TrekAmerica camping tours you will need to budget for the food kitty. This is usually US$10 a day however see individual tour pages for specific details. This will cover all of your meals while camping but does not cover meals during hotel stops or when the group chooses to sample regional cuisine.

Close

7. Do I need to tip?

Although it may not be customary in your country, it is normal and expected in North America to tip waiters, bar staff, any type of guide and taxi drivers. Service workers are paid a low wage and depend upon their tips for their livelihood. A minimum of 15% is standard in restaurants. Your trek leader works long and hard for you. He or she may well become your close friend during the trek, but they also need to pay their bills. If the leader's performance meets or exceeds your expectations we recommend a tip of US $5 per person, per day.
