Southwest Highlights Camping Tour - 7 Day Adventure from Las Vegas

Why We Love this Tour

“The Southwest is home to some of America’s most dramatic environments. Home to some of the most incredible Dark Sky parks, these natural areas are stunning during the day and captivating during the night. Although each park is relatively close to each other, they all have something vastly different to share. From the Hoodoos in Bryce, to the Native American history in Monument Valley, you’ll stay in awe over the parks of the Southwest.”

– Lauren Hirsch
