  • Day 1 - Joshua Tree National Park Meet your group at 9am for a Welcome Meeting then make your way to Joshua Tree National Park for your first hike of the trip. Keep an eye out for wildflowers such as cat’s claw acacia, desert almond and oak woodlands among the boulders as you stroll along this easy and accessible trail which leads to the famous Skull Rock. After the walk, settle in at your accommodation and spend the afternoon and evening at leisure before tomorrow's hikes.
  • Day 2 - Joshua Tree National Park Tuck into a hearty breakfast, pick up a packed lunch and off we go for another, this time, slightly longer hike. Lost Palms Oasis Trail is a popular out-and-back trail located near Mecca in California. At the far end of the canyon, there’s an oasis surrounded by fan palms and other plants. What goes down must go up and it’s a strenuous climb out of the canyon, but it is worth it to see this peaceful place. In the evening, enjoy an included dinner in the historical and atmospheric Pappy and Harriet's restaurant. Located on an old frontier town movie set was created by a group of Hollywood investors in the 1940s, you’ll enjoy tasty mesquite barbeque, live music, dancing, and friendly service at this famous dining spot.
  • Day 3 - Death Valley National Park Today is an early start as we make our way to Death Valley National Park. First, we stop on Mojave National Preserve for a walk along the Kelso Dunes Trail to listen to the booming dunes which really do boom. The strange and eerie sound is deep and rumbling and produces a vibration that you can feel deep inside your body. Want to make a really loud boom? Get your group together on the crest of the dune which hasn’t been walked on for a while and try to shove off as much sand as possible at the same time. You’ll also see beautiful wildflowers along this trail which is best enjoyed from October until May. Continue to Death Valley and explore Badwater Basin along the way, the lowest point in all of North America. Tonight you’ll stay in Death Valley.
  • Day 4 - Death Valley National Park Today it’s time for one of Death Valley’s most iconic hikes to the Golden Canyon. The choice of route will depend on the group’s abilities and willingness to hike in the heat as Death Valley is hot, hot, hot. It’s possible to get a glimpse of the canyon from the parking area but walking between the yellow walls of the canyon is well worth the effort to marvel at the wildlife, towering walls, colourful side canyons, and ripples formed by ancient water which have now turned to stone. If the group is feeling adventurous, a longer hike to Zabriskie Point, one of the most photographed lookouts at Death Valley National Park, is highly recommended. Lunch is included in your adventure today. Tonight, you can relax at your hotel or you may like to head out for an impromptu dinner with your group.
  • Day 5 - Las Vegas After breakfast, it’s time to make our way to Las Vegas. Before we enter the town, we’ll stop for a hike in the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. The Ice Box Canyon Trail leads to a narrow canyon that rarely sees sunlight so it is much cooler here than being out in the open desert. After the walk, we'll travel to Las Vegas where your trip will come to an end.
