- Examine Sequoia National Park’s giant trees with a naturalist, and then stargaze with an astronomy expert after the sun goes down.
- Take a behind-the-scenes tour of the Monterey Aquarium and learn about the facility’s National Geographic-sponsored research.
- Discover the breathtaking landscapes of Yosemite National Park.
See a side (or two or three) of California that many travellers never uncover on this nine-day quest through some of the state’s greatest national parks. Go from one kind of sensory-overload to another as you venture from the glitz of Las Vegas on to the glorious sights of Death Valley, Sequoia National Park, Kings Canyon National Park, and the world-famous Yosemite National Park. You’ll do so much more than just take in the sights, with ample time to explore the other-worldly landscapes of Death Valley and Yosemite, as well as the chance to gaze upon the stars in Sequoia — the very thing that made the first full-time editor of National Geographic realize the importance of preserving national parks. The conclusion of your adventure will find you taking in iconic sights and sounds of the urban variety in San Francisco.
