Immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the west

Explore the natural wonders of the U.S. on this captivating six day expedition out west. Stay in upscale Sedona, a retirement and artist community. Climb aboard the Grand Canyon Railway to gaze upon the dynamic colors and textures of the Grand Canyon, six million years in the making. Drive through Oak Creek Canyon, famous for its spectacularly colored white, yellow, and red cliffs dotted with pine, cypress, juniper. Visit the Chapel of the Holy Cross, a Catholic chapel built into the rocks with a stunning view, and Airport Mesa, a hiking loop through Table Top Mountain.

Encounter ruins of a cliff dwelling built in the 12th and 13th centuries at Montezuma Castle National Monument. Explore the former ghost town of Jerome, a restored mining town. Take another train ride through two national forests, past crimson cliffs, and over old-fashioned trestles.
