Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: London – Las Vegas

Your fly drive holiday starts as you fly to Las Vegas arriving the same day to a dazzling city of neon lights sitting in the heart of the Nevada Desert. After arrival, collect your Alamo rental car and head to your hotel. In the evening, be sure to head out and experience the world-class entertainment Las Vegas has to offer. Stay 1 night at Luxor Hotel and Casino (or similar).

Day 2: Las Vegas – Beatty – Rhyolite – Tonopah (approx. 228 miles)

Today, your Nevada discovery begins as you depart from your hotel and head west along Route 95, into the Pioneer Territory of the Silver State. Your first stop is the town of Beatty, the gateway to Death Valley National Park, where you can find Scotty Castle and get a glimpse of the roaring 20s and the life of Walter Scott, a flamboyant gold prospector. Then visit the neighbouring town of Rhyolite, one of the most photographed ghost towns of the west. Explore the town where gold was discovered in 1904, including its unusual bottle house. Your final destination for today is Tonopah, a historic gold mining town that’s also the number one stargazing destination in the USA. From here, why not head out to the 'Extraterrestrial Highway’ which skirts infamous Area 51 and have your camera at the ready for any UFO sightings. By evening, the Tonopah Star Trails blaze the dark-night sky offering spectacular views. Stay 1 night at the Best Western Hi-Desert Inn (or similar).


Day 3: Tonopah – Belmont – Austin – Eureka (approx. 228 miles)

Your drive will take you on a journey along the Pony Express today as you depart Tonopah and take Route 376 heading north. Stop by the historic town of Belmont, a onetime booming silver mining town and now one of Nevada’s oldest and largest living ghost towns. Then it’s back on the road, as you bypass the picturesque Smoky Valley towards Austin, where you can grab a bite to eat. With a rich history dating back to the mining days, this town is still alive and kicking today, with the rugged backdrop of the Toiyabe Mountain Range providing many an outdoor pursuit. Take a stroll along historic Main Street, with its collection of restaurants and unique shops to visit. Afterwards head onto Highway 50, the ‘Loneliest Road in America’, following the route of the old Pony Express riders when they once rode through the heart of Nevada towards, your destination for the evening. This 19th century town is still preserved since its heyday, where local character and beautifully restored buildings can still be explored today. Stay 1 night at the Best Western Eureka Inn (or similar).

Day 4: Eureka – Ely (approx. 77 miles)

Eureka offers many sights to see this morning, so why not visit the Eureka Courthouse and the Opera House, where you can find western-style opera, or pop by the Eureka Sentinel Museum which showcases memorabilia of the local newspaper press from a bygone time. Then it's back onto Highway 50 as you drive to Ely, another Nevada mining community which has been gracefully restored into a quaint and vintage town. Get an artistic glimpse into Ely's colourful history with its collection of murals painted across public and private buildings across the town. Founded as a stagecoach station along the Pony Express, you can revisit Ely's glory days at the Nevada Northern Railway Museum where you can ride on the Ghost Train of Old Ely. If time allows today, we also suggested taking a trip out to the Ward Charcoal Ovens to discover the unique beehive shaped coal ovens that were built around 1876 during the silver boom years of the ward mines. The ovens later served as a hideout for stagecoach bandits. Nowadays, the area is a scenic spot for hiking, picnicking and walking trails. Stay 2 nights at the Ramada Ely (or similar).


Day 5: Ely / Great Basin National Park (approx. 65 miles)

Today, take a short to discover Nevada’s best kept secret, the Great Basin National Park, sitting between the Sierra Nevada and the Wasatch Mountains, spend your day exploring the sparkling lakes, lush meadows and craggy mountain peaks of Wheeler Peak, to the wonderful stalagmites and stalactites of the Lehman Caves, which is also home to the bristlestone pines – the oldest living trees on earth. Experience the eerie desert solitude of the park as you explore the incredible natural wonders, where you can find many a myth or mystery hidden within its depths. By evening, the dark skies open to a starry delight for astronomers.

Day 6: Ely – Pioche – Caliente – Las Vegas (approx. 289 miles)

Your Nevada exploration will take you back to the shiny neon lights of Las Vegas today. Head on to Route 93, driving south through the scenic vistas of Nevada’s diverse landscapes. Along your journey stop by Pioche, one of the deadliest towns of theold west, where you can find the Million Dollar Court House, built in 1872 during a time when corruption was rife in this little town. Further along the route pass by the dramatic sandstone spires of Cathedral Gorge as you head to Caliente for a spot of lunch, which was named after the bubbling hot springs that was found nearby. Then it’s on back on the road as evening approaches, the bright lights and neon signs of Las Vegas will shine like a beacon to draw you in. Stay 2 nights at Luxor Hotel and Casino (or similar).

Day 7: Las Vegas

Today is your day to see the world along the Las Vegas Strip, from Egypt to New York and from South Beach, Miami to Venice – it’s just waiting to be explored. Then there's the swathe of plush casinos, where you can take your place at the table or simply watch the high rollers do what they do best. Make sure to visit Downtown where you can discover the classic glamour of Las Vegas from yesteryear to the dazzling overhead light show of the Fremont Street Experience. Whilst no trip will be complete without a photo stop at the famous ‘Welcome to Las Vegas’ sign to commemorate your Nevada experience.

Day 8: Las Vegas – London

After your journey of discovery through Nevada’s pioneer trails and old west roots, you can choose to extend your trip or alternatively return your car at the airport, before boarding your flight to London.
