Itinerary details


1 nightDENVER

Your journey begins in the characterful city of Denver. Part cowboy town and part creative, cultural and artistic melting pot, the Mile High City is a great jumping-off point for your Western adventure. You’ll spend the night at the Four Seasons, a luxurious hotel in the heart of downtown brilliantly located for exploring Denver’s vibrant art scene; Denver Art Museum is one of the biggest in the western USA and is famous for its collection of Native American art. The Clyfford Still Museum, meanwhile, is devoted to the work of the influential Abstract Expressionist of the same name. Head to Larimer Square for fashionable boutique shopping and trendy bars, or catch a ballgame overlooking the Rocky Mountains at Coors Field. Denver Center for the Performing Arts is a thriving showcase for theatre and the arts, and a great place to catch a new play or a touring Broadway production.

2 nightsASPEN

The next stop on your Western adventure, if you’re travelling by Harley, is the glamorous resort town of Aspen, nestled in the Rocky Mountains in central Colorado. Home to the most expensive real estate in the US, Aspen is a playground for the rich and famous year-round, and a beautiful place for outdoor activities. Hiking and horseback riding are great ways to get to know the mountain slopes, and fly-fishing and whte water rafting are available in the river. Hot air ballooning is a stunning way to take it all in from the air. For particularly beautiful scenery, head to the twin peaks of Maroon Bells, the most-photographed mountains in the USA – and it’s not hard to see why. Your home for the next two nights is Hotel Jerome, a luxurious and apparently haunted property with a rich history: former guests include Bill Murray and Jack Nicholson, and legendary journalist Hunter S. Thompson used to work out of the hotel’s J-Bar.

3 nightsDOLORES

If you choose to travel by private jet, then you will fly direct from Denver to Dolores, the next stop on your adventure – if travelling by bike, Aspen to Dolores takes around five and a half hours. A beautiful region of canyons, mountains and rivers, this area is also rich in fascinating Native American history. You will stay at Dunton River Camp, a beautiful ranch in the San Juan Mountains which combines the immersion of camping with modern comfort and luxury – accommodation is in luxurious safari-style tents which have en suite bathrooms, running water and even heated towel rails. The ranch is perfect for exploring the great outdoors, with horseback riding in the Rockies, fly fishing in an exclusive stretch of the Dolores River, and hiking and mountaineering in the San Juan Mountains are all options here. So too are photography and fine art classes, and archaeological excursions into the desert.

3 nightsPAGE

The next stop on your Western adventure is Page, Arizona, a desert town around four and a half hours’ ride away if you’re travelling by Harley. On the way, you’ll stop at Monument Valley, an area etched in the cultural consciousness through its appearance in classic John Wayne Westerns.  You’ll spend three nights at the stunning Amangiri, a luxury resort which blends into its desert surroundings with its carved sandstone and floor to ceiling windows. In the heart of the Grand Circle – the Southwest’s unrivalled concentration of National Parks including Arches, Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands and Zion – Amangiri is the perfect luxurious base from which to explore the hoodoos, mesas and arches which make up the stunning desert landscapes. A hot air balloon ride is an unforgettable way to take in the view, while hiking and horseback riding are also available; cultural activities with local Navajo people are on offer too.

2 nightsLAS VEGAS

After a few days exploring the desert from Amangiri, you’ll depart for your final stop: Las Vegas. Around four hours away if you’re riding by bike, you can break up the journey by stopping off at the mighty Grand Canyon en route. Truly one of the natural wonders of the world, this magnificent spot can be explored by hiking, biking, or on horseback; a helicopter ride over the canyon is an incredible experience. As for Vegas itself, a few nights in Sin City is the perfect way to round off your outdoorsy Western adventure with a strong shot of urbanity. The casinos, bars and nightclubs of the Strip need no introduction, but there’s much more to the city besides if you don’t fancy a flutter. Your hotel, in fact, the Mandarin Oriental, is not only acclaimed as one of the finest hotels in the world, it’s also unusual among hotels on the Vegas Strip in that it doesn’t have a casino, meaning it isn’t swarming with punters in the same way as the likes of the Bellagio. The Mob Museum offers a fascinating glimpse into the city’s gangster history, while Cirque du Soleil’s ‘O’ is a brilliant option if you’re looking to take in a show. After a couple of nights in Vegas, your Western adventure has reached its end, and you’ll fly home.
