Es wird sowohl in National- und Stateparks als auch auf privaten Campingplätzen übernachtet. Die Zeltplätze verfügen in der Regel über Duschen (tlw. gegen Gebühr) und Toiletten, teilweise sind sogar Schwimmbäder, Bars und Waschmaschinen vorhanden.

Day 1-2: Los Angeles & Las Vegas
You've seen it on the movies now it's time to kick start your epic cross country American road trip in the 'City of Angels'. Visit Hollywood Boulevard for a stroll down the Walk of Fame and grab that all important photo in front of the gigantic Hollywood sign. Things are about to get a whole lot hotter as you travel east to the desert city of Las Vegas. Cruise down the Strip, like a total legend in a super-stretch limo. With all this excitement you must be feeling hungry? So treat yourself to an all-you-can eat buffet, yum! For the next course you might like to take in a show or just watch the amazing crowds and neon signs as the glitzy hotels try to outdo each other with spectacular attractions. And if that's not enough you can take a helicopter flight back down the Strip. There really is nowhere on Earth quite like Vegas!

Accommodation:
Hotels included

Day 3: Zion National Park
One visit to Zion National Park and you'll be left feeling super inspired! Zion is definitely one of the most stunning national parks in the USA. The Virgin River runs through the very heart of the park and an afternoon spent relaxing here and enjoying the views is an afternoon well spent, yes indeed! For the best views in the park hike to the famous Angels Landing which offers 360 degrees of the entire park. Trust us when we say the effort is definitely worth the awesome views as you reach the top! If you prefer to take the low road explore The Narrows with its soaring walls, sandstone grottos and natural springs. It truly is a unique experience with great views of Zion from the valley floor.

Accommodation:
Camping included

Day 4: Bryce Canyon National Park
Want to see some crazy rock formations? Well, you're in the right place! Famed for its `hoodoos', you're in Bryce Canyon National Park. So, what's a `hoodoo'? Weird and wonderful rock spires arranged in rows is what they are and they are truly a sight to behold!  Native Americans believe these crazy shapes are `Legend People' who were turned to stone for their sins, but we'll let you decide. For close up views you'll have plenty of time to take advantage of the park's incredible system of trails. Wherever you walk, you'll encounter a kaleidoscope of colours and a fantasy land of rock spires that'll leave you searching for your own way to describe this `indescribable' place.

Accommodation:
Camping included

Day 5: Antelope Canyon & Lake Powell
The scenery just keeps getting better with an included stop at Antelope Canyon. Explore the incredible curved canyon walls and see shafts of light coming down through the rocks from the heavens. Antelope Canyon is one seriously incredible place. After all that exploring, there may be time to wash off the desert dust in the refreshing waters of Lake Powell. Straddling the border of Utah and Arizona, Lake Powell is desert paradise with a long list of things to do.

Camping included

Day 6-7: Grand Canyon National Park
Without a doubt one of the most beautiful viewpoints in the Southwest, Horseshoe Bend makes for an impressive stop. Next up, you'll witness the epic Grand Canyon, one of the `Seven Wonders of the Natural World'. With two days you have more than enough time to hike the rim trails for those incredible views looking down into the vast desert canyons. Or hike down into the canyon for a different perspective, and become one of only 5% of visitors to venture inside. If you want to get a little more extreme, opt for a helicopter flight over the Grand Canyon for a bird's eye view! Ready for the best bit? Waking up to the most stunning sunrise nature can throw at you!

Accommodation:
Camping included

Day 8: Monument Valley
You're on the road again and off to one of North America's most iconic landscapes, Monument Valley. It's the incredible Navajo people who really make Monument Valley the super special place it is today. Immerse yourself in their culture on an optional (and highly recommended) guided jeep tour of the Navajo Reservation and back roads. Marvellous buttes and mesas tower around you and this awe-inspiring landscape is something else! As the sun starts to fade, the delights of Mother Nature are not over. The stars come out to play as you and your Trek buddies swap stories under a starry sky next to a roaring campfire. This is a pure Wild West adventure!

Accommodation:
Camping included

Day 9-10: Arches National Park

Santa Fe will undoubtedly win you over with its laid-back charm and quirky character.

Day 14: Carlsbad Caverns National Park
Check out the International UFO Museum and Research Centre (and gift shop) in Roswell. They say Aliens crashed to Earth and they have proof! Make up your own mind. Head on to New Mexico and Carlsbad Caverns National Park to explore one of the largest cave systems in the world. Gnarled limestone stalactites hang from the ceiling like icicles, and stalagmites that look like twisting totem poles reach upwards creating a unique and interesting experience for all who walk through this incredible place. Did you know that when bats fly out of their cave they always turn left? Put this fact to the test with an optional Bat Flight Amphitheatre visit tonight.

Accommodation:
Camping included

The second biggest state has plenty of cacti, cowboys and southern hospitality to offer; there really is nowhere else like it.

Day 16-17: Austin, Texas
The music keeps on flowing as you arrive in Austin, another place which vies for the title of capital of America's music scene. It's an electric, cultural and artistic city which packs a punch.

Accommodation:
Hotel nights included (mixed dorm)

Day 18: Texas & Louisiana
As you leave Texas behind and enter Louisiana you'll be greeted with the distinctive sounds of zydeco music and the sweet, sweet smells of Creole cuisine.

Accommodation:
Camping included

Day 19-20: New Orleans
New Orleans simmers with Deep South charm, so pull up a chair in the French Quarter to watch the world go by and grab a po-boy, a bowl of gumbo or some home-cooked jambalaya for a taste of the South. Or a delicious sugary beignet if you've got more of a sweet tooth! If the food of the Deep South gets your mouth watering, why not join a cookery course at the New Orleans School of Cookery, so you can make life back home a little tastier with your new-found skills? For something a little different, opt for a 'Voodoo and Graveyard' tour or cruise along the Mississippi River on a traditional steamboat. By night, party hard in legendary Bourbon Street, hear the world-class jazz for which New Orleans is renowned at Preservation Hall, or explore the bars in Frenchmen Street for live music and dancing without the crowds.

Day 26-27: Miami
The wonderful city of Miami beckons with miles of golden sandy beaches and palm trees; it's easy to see why people flock here.

We're pretty sure you'll never tire of seeing the palm trees blowing in the summer breeze.

Day 29: Charleston
The oldest city in South Carolina, this places just oozes character and what better way to experience it than with a stroll along the coast. Take photos of the Morris Island Lighthouse that stands several hundred feet offshore or jump aboard an optional Charleston water taxi where you could spot some interesting wildlife. Experience the ultimate taste of the South with a Charleston Nasty Biscuit; a chicken biscuit (which is actually more like a scone) covered in gravy. Sounds gross, right? But, it's delicious and a favourite with the locals.

Accommodation:
Camping included

Day 30: North Carolina
Watch as swamps, plantations and palms morph into mountain views as you head north through the Carolinas. Set up camp and devour some's mores around the campfire. What are s'mores? Melted chocolate and marshmallow sandwiched between two plain biscuits. They're delicious!

Day 36: Cedar Point, Ohio & Lake Erie
It's on to Ohio, where you can ask a `Buckeye' to tell you all about their state nut or how cool they think Cedar Point Amusement Park's roller coasters are!

Day 40: Badlands National Park
Touching down in the unique lunar landscape of Badlands National Park feels more like a moon landing due to its bizarre low slung buttes, chiselled spires and saw tooth ridges. This definitely isn't the moon though, and the odd sighting of bison, Bighorn Sheep and Prairie Dogs only confirms this.

Whichever trail you choose you'll be amazed at the magnificent waterfalls and epic cliff faces. Famous for its Giant Sequoias and abundance of incredible wildlife such as bear and coyotes, you should keep your camera to hand at all times. If you need more, you can even float down the Merced River on a rubber ring for a different perspective of this truly awesome landscape.

Camping included

Day 62: California Coast
As the highway snakes further south down the California coastline, it's time to change gears to end the penultimate day under a blanket of stars. Life doesn't get much better than this so sit back, relax and watch the rugged coastline of the Pacific Coast roll right by!

UPDATE: Due to recent storm damage, the Pacific Coast Highway (Hwy 1) is closed in the Big Sur area south of Monterey. Until further notice we will not be visiting McWay Falls and will instead drive directly from San Luis Obispo area to Yosemite National Park.

Camping included

 
Day 63: Santa Barbara & Los Angeles
Uncover more of the sparkling Californian coastline as you head down to Santa Barbara, a beautiful town surrounded by mountains, rolling valleys and miles of gorgeous beach. With the Californian sun on your face you're off to Hollywood where you'll find the famous sign and the Walk of Fame where you can spot the hand prints of your favourite celebrities. Finally it's time to call it a wrap, on what has been one heck of an adventure through the best of the USA.

TOURSTIL & TEILNEHMER:
Diese Tour ist speziell für junge, abenteuerlustige und preisbewusste Reisende zwischen 18 und 38 gedacht. Ihr reist in einer kleinen internationalen Gruppe Gleichgesinnter und erforscht die Höhepunkte der USA und die Attraktionen abseits der Touristenpfade. Die Reiseroute ist flexibel, damit auf individuelle Wünsche und Aktivitäten unterwegs eingegangen werden kann und ein Maximum an Spaß garantiert ist.
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.
