The seemingly limitless expanse of the Grand Canyon, red rock chasms yawning under a blazing sky: the very desert air here seems like an invitation to freedom and exploration. So why follow the herd? Discover this outstanding natural attraction at your own pace on a self-drive tour, leaving from Las Vegas.

Everything’s ready for you: a full tank of gas and GPS instructions in an SUV, if you choose to go for some off-road action. The neon, clamor and glitz of the Strip will seem a world away as you get behind the wheel and set out on the highway.

You’ll pass Hoover Dam and dramatic Joshua Tree forests before arriving at the western rim of the glorious Grand Canyon. What you see and do when you get there is entirely up to you. Optional add-ons include the Grand Canyon Skywalk, a helicopter ride to the canyon floor or a cruise along the Colorado River. Or if that’s too sedate, you can even tackle the river’s famous white-water rapids upstream in a heart-pounding rafting adventure.  

To get more out of your visit, you can stay overnight at the Hualapai Ranch, an authentic Native American settlement at Grand Canyon West. That means you can head out up bright and early and see the canyon in its magnificent dawn finery, before the tour groups arrive.

And once you’ve lived life on the frontier for a day or two and experienced the best that this amazing natural wonder has to offer, hop back in the car and enjoy the scenic drive back to Las Vegas.
