South West Holidays

Landscapes and legends draw adventurers to the South West corner of the United States: Landscapes of epic wonder and beauty; legends of the pioneers, gold prospectors and cowboys who once crossed them. This is the land of the world-famous Grand Canyon, of Wild West ghost towns like Tombstone and Jerome, and of the soaring Pacific waves along the California coast. Come here for some of America’s best natural wonders and for iconic urban spaces too.

This region’s national parks are some of the most visited in the United States. Arches National Park in Utah is scattered with over 2,000 soaring natural stone arches. Carlsbad Caverns National Park in New Mexico combines rocky slopes and swooping canyons with an underground treasure of 119 limestone caves. Great Basin National Park in Nevada boasts mountain vistas, desert solitude and the most spectacular of night skies. And the most famous of them all, Grand Canyon National Park stretches in awe-inspiring scale and beauty across the Colorado Plateau in Arizona.

And the outdoor attractions don’t end there. Scottsdale is a golfing Mecca with over 200 courses and 330 days of sunshine annually. For the adventurous, there’s also skiing and water sports in Lake Tahoe or hot-air ballooning in Albuquerque. In fact, if you come during October, you’ll be treated to visual spectacle of Albuquerque’s annual International Balloon Fiesta. You can also truly immerse yourself in Native American culture in the South West states with the rock paintings at Canyon du Chelly and the guided Navajo tours of Monument Valley among the highlights.

From the bright neons you'll see on a Las Vegas holiday to mountain bordered Salt Lake City and the vibrant metropolis of Phoenix, there’s plenty to recommend a visit to one of the South West’s cities too. In fact, for a true taste of America, the South West states have it all.

Inspiring Landscapes

There’s little to beat the amazing vistas on show in the South West. Areas like the Grand Canyon and Zion National Park are well-known but there’s practically a breathtaking new view around every corner. Don’t miss the Valley of Fire State Park, the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area or the impossibly photogenic Horseshoe Bend on the Colorado River.

Epic History

The scope of history in this part of the United States is as epic as its landscapes. From ancient cliff dwelling and cave paintings to Aztec ruins, Navajo and Apache sacred places, Spanish missions and abandoned mining towns, there’s plenty to see. You can even watch a Wild-West gun-fight at the Ok Coral, every day at 2pm in the old silver mining town of Tombstone.

Native American Culture

If you want to gain an insight into Native American culture, you’re in the right place. The Navajo Reservation alone covers more than 27,000 square miles and there are 19 Indian pueblos in New Mexico. Two of the most visually arresting geological sites in the South West, Monument Valley and the Canyon du Chelly, are protected as sacred places and tribal imagery influences the art that’s produced across the region.

Star-Gazing

The American South West is considered to be one of the best places in the world to look up at the stars. Natural Bridges National Monument in Utah, the Sonoran Desert, Yosemite, the Grand Canyon and Bryce Canyon are amongst the most rewarding spots. You can also visit observatories in Flagstaff, Los Angeles and the Sacramento Mountains in New Mexico.

Get Your Kicks on Route 66

Stretching between Santa Fe, Las Vegas and Los Angeles, the iconic Route 66 has some of its most famous and quirky roadside attractions in this region. Look out for the World’s Largest Petrified Tree, the Golf Ball House, Uranium Cafe and Mr D’z Route 66 Diner on your way to Santa Monica.

International Film Festival in March and the Latino Carnaval Miami; the massively popular Art Basel festival happens in December; and that's just for starters.

You’re going to need an ESTA!
For anyone travelling to the USA, the US authorities have imposed a requirement for passengers travelling under the Visa Waiver Programme (VWP), to register for Electronic Travel Authority. Passengers who have not applied for and received travel authorisation via ESTA prior to travel could be denied boarding of the plane or be refused admission at the US entry destination. However, neither possession of a visa, nor meeting the basic requirements for travelling visa-free on the VWP, guarantees admission to the United States. As with most countries, the final determination of admissibility is made by immigration officials at the port of entry.

How do I apply for ESTA? 
Just fill in the online application form which you can find at https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov. Before you travel, you will need to visit this website and fill in the form.

When is best to apply for my travel authorisation?
You will need to apply for entry via ESTA at least a minimum of 72 hours prior to travel if you intend to travel to America.

How long is the travel authorisation valid for?
Your ESTA will be valid for up to two years, or until your passport expires. It is also valid for multiple entries to America. However you must amend any necessary data, such as date of travel and your address whilst in the US.
