Death Valley presents majestic mountains, colourful canyons, volcanic craters and salt pinnacles, all of which make this trip a photographic sightseer’s dream come true. For the truly adventurous, this tour not only runs in spring, fall, and winter but also throughout the summer months.
The early morning starts with your collection from your Las Vegas hotel and a delicious continental breakfast before heading west towards Death Valley. You'll travel in air-conditioned comfort to help escape the heat the valley is famous for.
Standing at the entrance to Death Valley and the first exploration and photo stop on this amazing adventure is the old Ghost Town of Rhyolite, a long-abandoned gold mining community and the set for many movies and documentaries.
Next, you'll drive down a beautiful winding highway and enter the centre of Death Valley from the east. This is like landing on Mars; you enter a foreign and strange world of endless desert, vast valleys, harshly sculpted peaks, garish colours, superbly adapted plants and animals – all are visible expressions of geologic time reckoned in millions of years. The driest, hottest climate imaginable - this is Death Valley, an immense, wild land that man has never tamed.
Enjoy a delicious picnic lunch while taking in the otherworldly views of this unique and challenging landscape. You'll also have access throughout the day to unlimited bottled water, so make sure you stay hydrated as the area regularly measure high temperatures over 110-degrees Fahrenheit (43 degrees Celsius) at the height of summer.
Capture the view of the valley from Hell’s Gate, well above the valley floor and then visit Badwater at 282 ft. below sea level. You'll also enjoy views and stops at Zabriskie’s Point, the Devil’s Golf Course, the Furnace Creek Museum, the Salt Lake, the Sand Dunes and the Artist's Pallet.
