Vacations are something we here at DETOURS do not take lightly. What could be more important than spending quality time with friends and family in the most beautiful Southwest Sceneries?

Can you imagine the memories that could have been made using just a fraction of those?! This year we think you deserve a vacation – and not just any vacation! DETOURS has some incredible Southwest Road Trip itineraries pre-built for you! We’ve done most of the work already, so why not let DETOURS do the rest too?

Multi-Day Road Trip Ideas

DETOURS encourages travelers, young and old, to take advantage of their time to explore, adventure and utilize one’s vacation time as effectively as possible. According to US Travel, taking vacation time from work makes you a more productive and positive employee. It’s true, look it up for yourself! US Travel suggests that Americans who use all of their vacation days are more likely to be promoted, have improved mental health, and a more positive demeanor when it comes to their jobs. Here at DETOURS, we are firm believers in the old saying: Work hard, play hard. Whether you are looking for a weekend getaway or week-long adventure, our Multi-Day tours take the stress out of planning, with itineraries all over the Southwest!

Some travelers enjoy week-long vacations with ample time to soak up the sights, we know we do! With that in mind, one of our favorite Multi-Day tours departing out of fabulous Las Vegas is our National Parks of Utah tour. With 6 days and 5 nights of some of the most beautiful scenery that Utah has to offer, how can you go wrong? Visit The Mighty 5 National Parks in Utah: Bryce Canyon, Zion, Arches, Canyonlands, and Capitol Reef. Experience first-hand the astounding, natural beauty of our 45th state. This Multi-Day tour has multiple departure dates in spring and fall to make sure that you get the most out of each location.

The Heaven & Hell Tour - Zion & Death Valley National Park

Looking for a shorter trip and traveling from Las Vegas? Boy, do we have the tour for you! Say hello to the Heaven and Hell Tour! With departures in the Spring and Fall (aka the best seasons to visit Sin City), join us on an exciting 3 day, 2 night tour that showcases the Ying and the Yang of the West’s largest National Parks. On this trip, some of the most interesting places that you’ll visit include Zion, otherwise known as Sanctuary, and Death Valley, sometimes referred to as well…hot as Hell. If you enjoy the life blooming auroras and dry desert landscapes all tied into one enchanting excursion, this is certainly an experience you don’t want to miss!

Don’t worry, if you’re interested in the rootin’ tootin’ Polish off your cowboy boots and grab your cowboy hat, because we’re headed to the Wild Wild West! Allow us to introduce you to our How The West Was Once Tour, departing from Phoenix. Tales of conquest and survival come to life throughout this 4-day, 3-night guided tour. Experience the Western lifestyle with us as we explore several historic Southern Arizona locations such as Fort Bowie, San Xavier del Bac Mission, the Amerind Museum, and the old mining town of Bisbee! We’ve gone ahead and ensured that this tour coincides with Wyatt Earp Days or Helldorado Days in Tombstone for a truly immersive experience.
