A classic USA Fly-Drive travelling from San Francisco to Las Vegas - drive via spectacular Yosemite National Park, beautiful Mammoth Lakes and stunning Death Valley - awe-inspiring stuff.
Day 1 - UK to San Francisco
Fly from London to San Francisco, arriving later the same day - departures from other UK airports are also available, of course. On arrival in to San Francisco make your way to the Carlton Hotel San Francisco for a three night stay - we have a range of hotel options to choose from, and your length of stay in San Francisco is flexible.
Days 2-3 - San Francisco
Enjoy getting to know San Francisco better over the coming few days. The redeveloped waterfront at Fisherman’s Wharf is a great place to explore, with its restaurants and shops, great museums and iconic sea lions (California law gives them first dibs on the best locations!) It’s worth noting that one of the city’s most renowned attractions - Alcatraz - must be prebooked if you're intending to visit.
Day 4 - San Francisco to Yosemite
Collect your rental car from the San Francisco depot, and head out of town towards Yosemite (approx 200 miles / 3 hours 15 mins) starting by crossing the vast Oakland Bay Bridge. If you’re in good time head straight in to Yosemite National Park and the spectacular Yosemite Valley (extra 50 miles / 1 hour 30 mins), in the heart of the park. Check in to the Yosemite View Lodge for a two night stay.
Day 5 - Yosemite National Park
Spend the day exploring spectacular Yosemite National Park - tomorrow you’ll cross the Tioga Pass (weather dependent), so today we’d recommend focusing on the Yosemite Valley area.
Day 6 - Yosemite to Mammoth Lakes
Today pass through Yosemite National Park and over the Tioga Pass (weather dependant) to Mammoth Lakes – (approx 130 miles / 3 hours 15 mins, plus stopping time), travelling via Yosemite Valley and El Capitan, Tenaya Lake and the June Lake Loop. It’s a spectacular journey! Mammoth Lakes is a ski resort in the winter and a great base for walking and exploring in the summer, set in spectacular countryside. Stay at the Westin Monache Resort for the night.
Day 7 - Mammoth Lakes to Death Valley
It’s a dramatic drive as you head from the high altitude of Yosemite to the lowest place in the USA at Death Valley (approx 210 miles / 3 hours 45 mins, plus stopping time).Travel via Bishop and Independence in to Death Valley National Park, visiting features such as Stovepipe Wells. On arrival in to Furnace Creek check in to the Ranch at Death Valley for one night.
Day 8 - Death Valley to Las Vegas
This morning we’d suggest exploring Death Valley a little more - the views from Zabriskie Point are spectacular and at Dante’s View you can see the lowest and highest points in the contiguous USA. From Death Valley continue to Las Vegas (approx 145 miles / 2 hours 15 mins), perhaps detouring to Red Rock Canyon before arriving in to Vegas. On arrival in to Las Vegas drop your car off at the airport depot and make your way to the Luxor Las Vegas Hotel & Casino for a three night stay - we have a range of hotels to choose from, and your length of stay in Las Vegas is flexible.
Days 9-10 - Las Vegas
Spend a few days discovering vibrant Las Vegas. The city comes alive at night, with numerous world-class shows to choose from. Book tickets well in advance for high profile shows and ‘must sees’, or see what’s available when you arrive if you’re open to suggestions.
Day 11 - Return
Make your way back to Las Vegas airport for your return flight the UK, arriving the next day.
