Your hotel in Las Vegas
Tour the most fascinating sites in this land of extremes, including Furnace Creek, where the highest temperature in North American history was recorded, and Badwater Basin, the lowest point in the United States.
You will be picked up from your Las Vegas hotel in an air-conditioned vehicle and taken to your luxury Tour Trekkers (4-wheel drive vehicle), for this Death Valley Adventure. You will be accompanied by a knowledgeable English-speaking guide.
Your scenic drive to Death Valley passes in a breeze in a luxury Trekkers, as you sink into the plush leather seats and gaze out the extra large viewing windows at the harsh desert scenery.
Arrive at Death Valley National Park. With an area of more than 3000 square miles, it is the largest national park in the contiguous United States.
This ominously-named stretch of desert is the lowest, driest and hottest valley in America and its vast and thirsty sands are a sight to behold.
Visit Furnace Creek, where the thermometer shot to 134 degrees Fahrenheit in 1913, the hottest temperature ever recorded in the United States. See the jagged salt pinnacles in the Devil’s Golf Course, where Death Valley’s last lake disappeared more than 2,000 years ago.
You’ll also explore Badwater Basin, the lowest point in North America at 282 feet below sea level, and Zabriskie Point, an undulating expanse of gullies and mud hills at the foot of the Funeral Mountains.
In the winter, the snow-capped peaks of the mighty Sierra Nevada Mountains pose a striking contrast to the arid reaches of Death Valley.
You will be treated to a box lunch with choice of ham, turkey or vegetarian sandwich, potato chips, cookies and bottled water and eaten at the Visitors Center or at picnic tables along the road in Death Valley.
You will be returned to your Las Vegas hotel at tour’s end.
