Day 1: New York Area - Niagara Falls
Give yourself plenty of time to explore New York City by adding a couple of extra nights before your tour departs - whether you choose to head to the top of the Empire State Building or take a stroll through beautiful Central Park, there's something for everyone here. On Day 1, you'll leave city life behind and make your way across New York state to Niagara for an illuminated view of the Falls.

Accommodation: Camping included
Meals: Food kitty

Day 2: Niagara Falls - Cedar Point
Niagara Falls is three waterfalls all rolled into one, so you can only imagine how epic it'll be to witness this natural wonder with your own two eyes. Get as close as you dare to the booming cascades of water on an included 'Maid of the Mist' cruise - just be prepared to get wet! Travelling further on, cross over into the state of Ohio and on to Cedar Point, where you'll find 'The Best Amusement Park in the World'. You'll soon see why! The park’s roller coasters dominate the skyline as far as the eye can see. After an afternoon of excitement and thrills, you'll be pleased to rest your weary head for a night next to beautiful Lake Erie.

Please note: Cedar Point in Ohio is open all of June, July and August and on certain days during May, September and October. It may not always be possible to visit Cedar Point Amusement park.

Accommodation: Camping included
Meals: Food kitty

Optional activities:
- Maid of the Mist cruise (summer only) US$19
- Cedar Point Amusement Park (evening 'Twilight Pass') US$40-$50

Day 3-4: Chicago
Next you're heading for Chicago, often better known as the 'Windy City'.
Home to some of the greatest blues music in America so be sure to check
out the local blues clubs while you're here. Soar up Willis Tower to
see dizzying views over the ‘Windy City’ or trawl the upmarket malls of
Magnificent Mile, before taking to pedal power on your included ‘Bobby's
Bike Hike’ tour. It's a great way to see the city from the perspective
of your local guide. For awesome views of the city skyline head down to
Lake Michigan, and you might want to end the day with a slice of
Chicago's famous deep-dish pizza… yum!

Accommodation: Hostel included
Meals: Food kitty

Optional activities:
- Willis Tower US$22
- Museums US$20-$50
- Blues clubs from US$6
- Baseball game from US$20

Day 5: Minnesota
If you live for the dairy delight that is cheese, then you might want to
consider moving to Wisconsin. Famed for cheesy goodness, Wisconsin is
also known for beer making, so you can rest assured you won't go hungry
or thirsty here. It just wouldn't be a road trip in North America
without a few roadside attractions, so pay a visit to the iconic Jolly
Green Giant Statue in Blue Earth as you head out across the great
prairies of America's original western frontier. Resident coyotes may
let loose with the occasional howl as you settle down for some shut-eye
under a sky full of stars.

Accommodation: Camping included
Meals: Food kitty

Day 6: Badlands National Park
All signs lead to Wall Drug, the renowned drugstore in the little
frontier town of Wall. It's so big you need a map to get around and it's
also your last stop before heading into the Badlands, where you'll have
the chance to experience what it might be like to land on the moon. The
bizarre setting of Badlands National Park is truly unusual, so get
snap-happy as you explore the unique lunar landscape of low slung
buttes, chiselled spires and saw tooth ridges.

Accommodation: Camping included
Meals: Food kitty

Day 7: Mount Rushmore
Enjoy a morning hiking around Badlands National Park, before checking
out the sight of America's famous presidents peering out of the granite
face of Mount Rushmore. The sculpture features the presidents George
Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln –
and it's pretty darn huge, with 18 metre high (60 ft.) faces towering up
high. Don't forget to check out another immense rock carving that, the
impressive Crazy Horse monument, which is a memory to the famed Lakota
Indian war leader who led the attack against General Custer at the
Battle of the Greasy Grass, otherwise known as the Battle of the Little
Bighorn. It’s a sight not to be missed.

Accommodation: Camping included
Meals: Food kitty

Day 8: Cody
It's pistols at dawn as you enter wild Wyoming and head to Cody in the
heart of cowboy country. Embrace the town’s cowboy roots, shake a leg
and try some two-step! Nothing says Wyoming more than a good dose of
rodeo, so if you’re lucky enough to be in town during rodeo season (June
to August), then you’re in for some fun as we’ve included an evening
visit.

Accommodation: Camping
Meals: Food kitty

Day 9-10: Yellowstone National Park
Pitch up in the world's first national park, Yellowstone. View the
iconic, explosive Old Faithful Geyser and keep your eyes peeled for the
abundant wildlife that roams the park including bison, moose, elk and
bear, or even wolves if you’re lucky as they have been reintroduced to
this wilderness park. With all the geysers, colourful bubbling pools and
beautiful waterfalls too, it’s no surprise that Yellowstone is often a
tour leader and Trekker favourite!

Accommodation: Camping included
Meals: Food kitty

Day 11-12: Grand Teton National Park - Jackson
Next up are the wonderful views and hikes of Grand Teton National Park.
With few foothills to speak of, the jagged peaks rise dramatically from
lush, flat meadows and stand out against bright blue skies. We recommend
taking the ferry across to Jenny Lake and hiking up to Inspiration
Point for sensational views of the valley, lake and forest below. Nearby
is Jackson, a quaint cowboy town surrounded by green mountains offering
lots of options for adventure activities. Rafting the raging Snake
River rapids, one of America's last great untamed rivers, should
definitely get that adrenaline pumping! If you prefer to stay on dry
land, how about a shot of 'Red Eye' whiskey at the Silver Dollar
Saloon?

Accommodation: Camping included

across the Northern Great Basin. You'll bite off a big chunk of the
Nevada desert today and when you arrive in Tahoe you're sure to be blown
away by the stunning crystal clear waters and the incredible vistas
that surround it. This is the perfect opportunity to go for a quick swim
or just chill out. Top the day off with an optional sunset sailboat
cruise or try to win big at one of the nearby resort hotels.

Accommodation: Camping included
Meals: Food kitty

Optional activities:
- Sunset champagne cruise US$53

Day 15-16: Yosemite National Park
You won't know where to focus your gaze as you drive along winding roads
that look out across the beautiful Sierra Nevadas. The scenery you pass
will have you itching to get your hiking boots on and discover the
awesomeness that is Yosemite National Park. Yosemite is nature's
greatest backyard and with both easy and strenuous hikes you're bound to
find a trail that suits your ability. Whichever trail you choose you'll
be amazed at the magnificent waterfalls and epic cliff faces. Famous
for its Giant Sequoia trees and abundance of incredible wildlife such as
bear and coyotes, you should keep your camera to hand at all times! You
can even float down the Merced River on a rubber ring for a different
perspective of this truly special place.

Accommodation: Camping included
Meals: Food kitty

Optional activities:
- Bike rental US$12-$34
- Float trip on the Merced River US$31

Come
fog or shine, this city's always awesome! Start with a tour of

quirky shops and cafes. You can't go all the way to San Francisco
without a stroll across the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, of course. The
highlights keep coming thick and fast on an included tour of San
Francisco's most famous areas guided by a local, including Union Square,
Pier 39, Chinatown and the famously crooked Lombard Street! To top it
all off, set sail on an optional sunset cruise and get a different
perspective of the famous bridge and this awesome city.

A drive along the California Coast is what road trip dreams are made of.
You won't want to take your eyes off the road as more incredible views
await around every twist and turn. You’ll stop off for the night in the
beautiful San Luis Obispo area on the California coast. As you’re close
to the beach, it would be a shame not to finish your day with a dip in
the North Pacific Ocean.

Accommodation: Camping included
Meals: Food kitty

Day 20: Santa Barbara - Los Angeles
Enjoy a morning in sunny Santa Barbara to explore the pier, shop, or
relax on the beach. Known as 'The American Riviera', you'll find no
shortage of palm trees to sit beneath - perhaps with a glass of local
wine. This is Grade-A California right here! Roll into the 'City of
Angels', Los Angeles, for an included tour of Hollywood Boulevard, a
chance to stroll the Walk of Fame and take a photo of the iconic
Hollywood sign.

the excitement never ends!

Accommodation: Hotel included
Meals: Food kitty

Day 22-23: Las Vegas
From the glitz and the glam to the brash and the brilliant, you're now
in Vegas, baby! With so much to see and do, the best place to start is
your included cruise down The Strip in a super-stretch limo! Afterwards
indulge in an all-you-can-eat buffet, take in a show or just watch the
amazing crowds and neon signs as the glitzy hotels try to outdo each
other with attractions. Want something more spectacular? Then take a
helicopter flight back down The Strip! It's also very possible to get

sight of the Virgin River snaking through the valley below is just
awesome.

forget your camera for a sunrise or sunset hike along the rim. If you're

You're on the road again and off to one of North America's most recognisable landscapes, used as the set for countless Western movies. Immerse yourself in the native culture on a highly recommended optional jeep tour of the Navajo Reservation and backroads, led by a local guide.

You're also close enough to the Graceland mansion of Elvis, so it would be rude not to swing by.

Ihr seid offen für Neues, flexibel und habt kein Problem damit eine Weile auf Komfort zu verzichten. Anpacken und Mithelfen sind für Euch keine Fremdwörter, Ihr besitzt Teamgeist, seid anderen gegenüber tolerant und aufgeschlossen und der englischen Sprache mächtig. Spaß und Abenteuer stehen bei dieser Tour im Vordergrund. Ihr unternehmt Aktivitäten in der Gruppe, habt aber auch genug Freizeit zur Verfügung um alleine oder mit euren Mitreisenden neue Orte auf eigene Faust zu entdecken.

MITHILFE:
Aktive Mithilfe ist ein wichtiger Bestandteil der Tour. Ihr helft eurem Reiseleiter bei den täglich anfallenden Arbeiten im Camp, darunter Auf- und Abbau der Zelte, Einkaufen, die Zubereitung der Mahlzeiten oder das Be- und Entladen des Fahrzeugs. Auf diese Weise wird jeder Einzelne in der Gruppe miteinbezogen.

FAHRZEUG:
Alle Fahrzeuge sind mit Klimaanlage und sehr guten Stereoanlagen ausgestattet um Euch während der Fahrt größtmöglichen Komfort und Spaß zu ermöglichen. Gepäck, Ausrüstung und andere Notwendigkeiten werden in einem speziellen Anhänger oder in extra dafür vorgesehenen Stauraum untergebracht. Die Gruppe hat so die Möglichkeit sich mit ausreichend Proviant einzudecken um sich selbst zu versorgen und sogar die hintersten Ecken der USA zu erforschen.

FREE WI-FI:
Ihr könnt während der Fahrt Eure E-Mails checken und auf Facebook und Twitter posten, denn die Fahrzeuge sind mit WI-FI ausgestattet. WI-FI ist verfügbar während der Fahrten in USA und Alaska (max. 5 Pax gleichzeitig). WI-FI ist abhängig von der örltichen Signalverfügbarkeit.

TOURBEGINN/ENDE:
Die Tour beginnt und endet in eurem Ausgangshotel. Ihr startet am ersten Tag in der Regel gegen 7.30 Uhr und beendet eure Tour am späten Nachmittag des letzten Tages. Genauere Infos zu Tourbeginn und -ende findet Ihr auf eurem Tourvoucher.
