Geography Trips for Schools to South West USA
Buckle up for an adventure that’s as big as the Grand Canyon! Dramatic scenery meets diverse geographical opportunities in the South West, making it the ultimate geographer’s playground. Voyage through the states of Nevada, Arizona, California and Utah and take in the vast deserts, mighty rivers, rocky gorges and deep canyons. The sheer scale and size of the landscape and its features is simply mind blowing.
Your students will have the chance to view and study spectacular natural wonders, including the Grand Canyon, Colorado River and Meteor Crater, as well as feats of engineering like the Hoover Dam, Glen Canyon Dam and Lake Powell. Trust us when we say ‘you’ll feel part of the landscape’. In contrast to its backdrop of red rock and fiery sandstone, your trip will start or finish in Las Vegas – a city that’s every bit as outrageous as the landscapes that surround it. But the question remains, is it sustainable?
Why South West USA?
It’s an exciting long haul destination for the geography teacher who is looking for something different. Andy Smith from Bradford Grammar School said of his Geography Trip to the area, “simply put – it was a fantastic experience that they never will forget. Highlights? What to pick when there were so many!”
Did you know?
The Grand Canyon measures 277 miles long, 18 miles wide and a mile deep.

USA Geography Recommended Visits
USA’s diverse geographical landscapes make it the ideal destination to enhance your students’ understanding of a range of topics on the geography syllabus. Here you can discover just some of the geographical excursions we can build into your bespoke school trip itinerary.
Colorado River & The Hoover Dam
The Colorado River is one of North America’s great and iconic rivers. The arid landscape through which it flows for much of its journey (its source being in the Rocky Mountains) consists of classic buttes, mesas and plateaux, set amidst vast, open plains. Combine this with the area’s semi-desert climate and associated weather phenomena and a very new and fascinating world of geography opens up for your pupils.
Today the entire length of the Colorado River is managed; its water is the lifeline for all human life activity. A significant component part of the Colorado river’s basin management is the Hoover Dam, a staggering piece of engineering. This National Historic Landmark on the Colorado River is an extraordinarily impressive structure; it is immense! Located on the Nevada-Arizona border, 50km south-east of Las Vegas, nearly one million visitors take a tour here annually. The Hoover Dam is one of a series of dams on the Colorado River. Behind it lies Lake Mead, one of the many very important reservoirs developed for water supply and electricity generation for farmers, industries and urban populations. Much can be learned and appreciated about River Basin Management on the Colorado River. It is possible to walk over the Hoover Dam from the Nevada side to the Arizona side, looking over the dam wall and changing time zones as you do. The new Bypass Bridge, just a kilometre or so downstream, opened in 2010, built to speed traffic flow as well as to increase security of the dam, will then be used to continue on with your tour itinerary.
Geography Study Handbooks
Colorado River & the Hoover Dam
In this study unit the location and nature of hot deserts is first explained with map and climate graph tasks. Explanations are provided as to why the Mojave and Sonora Deserts are so dry. Aspects of desert ecosystems are also introduced. River basin management is then fully explored along the entire length of the Colorado River, why it is needed on the Colorado is considered and the best locational factors needed for dams and reservoirs specifically relating this to the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead. Following this, students will consider the multi-purpose benefits of such schemes plus the pros and cons that result from them.
The Grand Canyon National Park
The Grand Canyon National Park is a World Heritage Site and is unrivalled throughout the world for the panoramic views offered to visitors from its rims. The 29 km wide (18 miles) canyon has been cut by the Colorado River to reveal layers of rock that date back some 1.8 billion years. Known for its overwhelming size and intricate colourful landscape that change with the time of day, the season and the weather, it is of huge geological significance as much of the thick sequence of ancient rocks are beautifully preserved and exposed in the walls of the canyon. A full day along the South Rim, walking along paved paths and viewing breathtaking scenery, can be complemented by a talk from a ranger about aspects and issues of the GCNP such as geology and landscape development of the Canyon and/or management issues in such a “honey-pot” site. A stop at the small settlement of Tusayan is a good introduction to the area; here, a film at the IMAX theatre describes the exploration of the Colorado River and includes fabulous footage of the canyon, shot from both the river below and the sky above.
Geography Study Handbooks
Grand Canyon Landscape and Management
In this study unit the first focus is on the area’s landscape evolution. Geological events are described to account for the sequencing of rocks present here (e.g. sedimentation, uplift, folding, volcanic events, etc.) and then the work of fluvial and weathering processes upon the uplifted plateau are considered to explain the formation of slopes, buttes, mesas and plateaux in this grandest of landscapes. Visitor numbers are then considered, both year on year and seasonally within one year, to illustrate the environmental pressures that build as a result. Several issues are listed for debate before the Park’s Management Plans are presented. There is much in the way of on-site activities too with which to engage, covering many aspects of physical and the human geography. Observation, recording, consideration and evaluation are skills that are encouraged by tackling such tasks.
Colorado River: Horseshoe Bend
The course of the Colorado River is spectacular at any point. However, just south of Page, Arizona, the viewpoint over Horseshoe Bend has to be a major highlight. Accessed via a short stroll through desert sands and interestingly weathered rocky outcrops, Horseshoe Bend is a classic example of an incised goose-neck meander. As the rocky Colorado Plateau slowly uplifts, the Colorado River cuts ever deeper into the bedrock. The work and power of a river is fully understood from this viewpoint; river cliffs tower and point bars extend massively; their sheer scale is truly awesome. Pleasure craft, far below, travelling the course of the river, look like tiny dots, adding a perspective on the scale of the vastness of this natural wonder.
Geography Study Handbooks
Colorado River and Horseshoe Bend
In this study unit meander development, land uplift and isostasy are fully illustrated. The reality of these processes can be so readily and clearly understood and appreciated on-site. Photographs and prepared fieldsketches are provided for when on-site. Further, consideration of the impact of river basin management on the Colorado River, its processes and sediment load, is encouraged in order to illustrate natural systems and how humans interact with them.
Craters: Meteoric and Volcanic
South West USA has so much more to offer in the way of outstanding physical geography than simply staggering sedimentary landscapes, awesome as they are. Initially titled, “Dimples and Pimples”, this itinerary option takes you to Meteor Crater, a “dimple” created by extra-terrestrial forces, as well as Sunset Craters, an area of superb volcanic “pimples”.
Meteor Crater is a huge hole in the middle of the arid sandstone desert of Arizona, east of Flagstaff. Around 50,000 years ago, a small asteroid about 24m in diameter hit here and formed the crater. The crater rim rises 46m above the level of the surrounding flat landscape. The crater itself is nearly 1.6km wide, and 174m deep; enough to “swallow” a 60 storey building. The floor of Meteor Crater is large enough to accommodate 20 football pitches and over two million fans could watch from the slopes of the crater walls! By contrast, to the north of Flagstaff, Northern Arizona’s San Francisco Volcanic Field is an area of young volcanoes sitting on top of the southern edge of the Colorado Plateau. Sunset Crater volcano is 305m high and is a dark grey and reddish cone of scoria and volcanic bombs. Easy walks lead you through a fascinating landscape of contorted lava flows. The volcanic landscapes are now covered with forests that vary from the Piñon-Juniper forests at lower altitudes to the Bristlecone Pine forests at higher altitudes.
Geography Study Handbooks
Craters: Meteoric and Volcanic
This study unit helps pupils to understand the terms meteors, meteorites and asteroids, their origin and some basic facts about their development and how craters are produced. This is followed by more specific information about the Holsinger Meteorite that created the Meteor Crater, with some pre-visit activities to complete. Similarly, the nature of the particular type of volcanic activity that occurred in this area is described to explain both the nature of the volcanic cones as well as particular lava flow features. On-site activities include tasks to complete whilst in the Meteor Crater Exhibition Centre before then viewing the crater itself from various perspectives. When at Sunset Crater, easy walk options are available on various lava flow trails with tasks to tackle at various points of the stroll.
Glen Canyon and Lake Powell
The city of Page, NE Arizona, situated on a mesa in extreme north-central Arizona, is the gateway to the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, Glen Canyon Dam and Lake Powell. A Lake Powell boat trip can take you to Rainbow Bridge National Monument, passing staggering sandstone and limestone buttes, mesas and plateaux during the cruise. The actual route of your cruise will be determined by the water levels in Lake Powell, meaning that some channels are non-navigable. A short walk from the boat to the awesome Rainbow Bridge is simply beautiful; afternoon sunlight makes the colouration especially brilliant. The arch gracefully curves to a height of 88m with its predominant colour salmon pink – be sure to spot the arch’s “rock lizard” and, close by, look for the fossilised dinosaur footprint. This walk allows you to connect with the magnificent environment. You will pass by dry stream valleys, see excellent examples of desert varnish and perhaps spot some “hanging gardens” in the rock faces where water seeps out above an impervious layer. Lake Powell is very popular as a water-based recreational area and the nature of this and the conflicts it generates can be viewed and evaluated. The huge efforts, too, to maintain pristine water and environmental quality might be spotted e.g. the anti-graffiti squads at work.
Geography Study Handbooks
Glen Canyon and Lake Powell: Geological Wonders
This study unit considers both the changing geological environments and physical geography processes that have shaped the present day landscape (including butte, mesa, platea and scree development, the fascinating sandstone “volcanoes” that developed as a result of meteor impact, weathering pits (chemical weathering), desert varnish and the sequence of events that produced Rainbow Bridge). The intention of this particular study unit is to provide some background knowledge of the landscape in order to allow meaningful observation and fullest understanding whilst out in-the-field.
Lake Powell: Glen Canyon Dam
Page was created as a company town for the construction of Glen Canyon Dam in the 1960s. The town has continued to prosper as a service and tourist hub. A tour of the impressive dam, part of the integrated Colorado River Basin Management Scheme, will take you above and to the bottom of the dam.
Geography Study Handbooks
Lake Powell: Glen Canyon Dam
This Study Unit has been prepared to allow pupils to become fully engaged with the issues that surround river basin management and the pros and cons, of which there are many. To set the scene, an overview of Glen Canyon Dam/Lake Powell’s place in the Colorado’s river basin management is first set out. This is followed by the economic, environmental and social advantages and disadvantages of such schemes, with specific reference to Glen Canyon Dam/Lake Powell. A large list of advantages and disadvantages are provided with pupils being asked to categorise them as either economic, social and/or environmental. Pupils can tabulate and then display their results. To conclude, pupils are then asked to consider the “Dammers”, who wish such dams, or the “Blasters”, who want the removal of such dams, and this too can be displayed; there is the option to cover this through a role-play debate.
Lake Powell: Slot Canyons
In the vicinity of Page are wonderful slot canyons, narrow water sculpted ‘funnels’ where the geology of the rocks can be explored in close up. Antelope Slot Canyon is an excellent example of such formations and can be explored on foot; definitely a place for cameras as the light changes by the hour and with the weather. Many such slot canyons have been lost under the rising waters of Lake Powell, making these remaining sub-aerial examples particularly precious.
Geography Study Handbooks
Lake Powell: Slot Canyons
The nature and formation of slot canyons is first presented and the fact that many such “mini canyons” have been lost due to the formation of the Lake Powell reservoir. With flash floods being a feature of this type of landscape’s weather, convectional storms are explained indicating the ferocity of such fluvial events. Consideration is also given to the reasons why flash flooding from such storms is so likely in this type of environment with the 1997 major flash flood taken as an example. For on-site activities, two prepared fieldsketches are provided to allow landscape analysis (recognition, naming and explaining) as well as observational tasks whilst in Antelope Slot Canyon.
Bryce Canyon National Park:
As you will come to appreciate, as the locals say, this really is “a hell of a place to lose a cow”!
Bryce Canyon National Park is named after one of a series of horseshoe-shaped amphitheatres carved by water from the eastern edge of the Paunsaugunt Plateau in southern Utah. Erosion has shaped colourful limestones, sandstones and mudstones into thousands of wavy spires, fins, pinnacles and mazes. Collectively called “hoodoos”, these unique formations, with names such as Thor’s Hammer, are whimsically arranged and tinted with numerous, subtle colours. There are superb panoramic overviews to be enjoyed, as well as more intimate light treks to be taken through the pine forests and amongst the hoodoos; an opportunity to stretch legs and to be immersed in the nature. The Navajo Loop Trail and the Queen’s Connecting and Garden Trails are recommended. There is much to learn and appreciate here, about the geology, the landscape processes, forms, forest and tourist management.
Geography Study Handbooks
Bryce Canyon National Park
On the large scale, considering the plateau within which the hoodoos have developed, the process of uplift and isostasy is covered. With the hoodoos being such a distinctive feature of the landscape here, their formation and development is then fully described, explained and illustrated. The forces of running water and wind are the main processes at work in their formation, sculpting the rock fins and pinnacles into dramatic shapes. A large map is then provided for use whilst out in-the-field, on one of the marked trails, onto which annotations can be made.
Las Vegas: Sustainable City?
Known as ‘The Entertainment Capital of the World’, Las Vegas is a world away from the natural sights of your Geography Study Tour. The Strip, at the centre of Las Vegas, is a 5.5 km stretch of dazzling, unending decadence, illuminated day and night by miles of neon tubing and fibre optic lights. After a week of travelling, you will deserve a break with shopping, riding roller coasters, swimming and strolling along this sparkling and fast-growing metropolis. You will see replicas of the Eiffel tower, an Egyptian pyramid and ancient Roman palaces; all features of Las Vegas’ various themed hotels. Each hotel seems more jaw-droppingly lavish and over the top than the last; moderation is not a word often used in this city! The Stratosphere Tower at 350m high is a must if you are not frightened of heights and at the top is the awesome Big Shot roller coaster. Las Vegas, a sustainable city? – you decide!
Geography Study Handbooks
Las Vegas: Sustainable City?
Las Vegas really ought not to be where it is! This Study Unit considers the aspects of the city’s site and situation that are significantly challenging in terms of sustainability. The growth of the city and its various phases is considered, illustrating how the city’s function has greatly changed. Aspects of the present day demography of the city are then provided with tasks to complete on population growth and population structure. With this background, and the seemingly relentless growth of Las Vegas, pupils are then asked to consider the city’s sustainability; they are asked to consider the “pressure points” of, for example, air quality, water and power availability, transport. The issues that this study unit raises, and the way in which they are presented, offers the chance to work this part of the study unit as role play/debate.
Colorado Float Trip
The gentle float trip down the Colorado River departs from the base of Glen Canyon Dam by Page and continues on to Lees Ferry (the original and once the only fording point across the Colorado River). This trip offers the opportunity to be in amongst and surrounded by the features of the Grand Canyon lands rather than viewing them from above. Rafting around Horseshoe Bend and looking up the canyon walls is breathtaking. Stops are made on the float trip, one of which allows native Indian petroglyphs to be seen close-up.
Alan Bible Visitor Centre
There is a most informative Visitors’ Centre to walk around. There is a very large 3D model of the Colorado River Basin as part of the exhibits; this is ideal for everyone to get their bearings (not just where they presently are but to where they will be travelling). Outside is a Botanical Garden and Trail. Many plants of the Mojave Desert are represented here. A Ranger can be available to give your group a personalised tour and talk (on topics such as flora/fauna adaptations in a hot desert environment or environmental issues relating to River Basin Management on the Colorado, etc.).
California is at the border between two major tectonic plates and San Francisco’s earthquake history, makes it an ideal destination to investigate the major earthquake threat faced by the region, understand why people live in hazardous areas and consider the effectiveness of hazard management strategies. San Francisco is a vibrant and quirky city with steep winding hills and much to offer the first time visitor: the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars and colourful houses; Golden Gate Park; Alcatraz; Fisherman’s Wharf and Pier 39; the California Academy of Sciences, to name but a few. A short drive north of the city takes you to Sausalito, Muir Woods and Point Reyes National Seashore or travel south to explore Silicon Valley, home to many of the world’s major high tech companies.
Nowhere is the subtle beauty and uniqueness of desert environments better exemplified than in Death Valley; the hottest, driest and lowest National Park. In this land of extremes the variety of terrain is mesmerising. Walk out onto a surreal landscape of expansive salt flats, once a large freshwater lake and the lowest point in the US, explore the rugged, vibrantly coloured, wildly eroded, badlands and admire the vast fields of golden sand dunes.
Yosemite National Park
The staggeringly beautiful landscape of Yosemite is the product of millions of years of geological change. Spectacular rock formations carved by rivers and glaciers, plunging waterfalls, attractive meadows and ancient giant sequoias are guaranteed to take your breath away and provide spectacular learning opportunities.

Overview of visits: Limo Tour of Las Vegas, Hoover Dam, The Grand Canyon.
The group boarded their plane at 11.20am full of excitement for the adventures that lay ahead of them on their tour of South West USA. With an 8 hour time difference and around an 11 hour flight, the group stepped off the plane at 2pm in to the sunny land of Las Vegas. After a short transfer, the group arrived at the tremendous Circus Circus Hotel,where they checked in and unpacked their belongings. Once settled in, the group met to enjoy a well-deserved dinner and a little time to unwind in this spectacular hotel which holds a theme park, amusement arcade and even its own circus acts on the ground floor! The group could not contain their excitement!
The group re-joined some time later for a 2 hour limo tour of Las Vegas! The journey was truly exhilarating; with a real buzz amongst the group! The group returned to the hotel for 10.30pm and went straight to bed to get some well needed rest for the following day.View the full day-by-day itinerary
It was an early start as the group set off for Hoover Dam where they were embarking on a rafting experience. Here they admired a bird’s eye view of the new bypass bridge which spans the Black Canyon, 900ft above the Colorado River. The group spent 3 hours exploring 12 miles of history and geography that weaved through the canyon walls. They experienced waterfalls and hot springs, Desert Big Horn Sheep and Great Blue Heron; to name but a few extraordinary sights. They had time to enjoy a packed lunch and stop along the way at a beach where they could swim and play in the cool, clear water of the Colorado River.
The afternoon was spent back in Las Vegas and amidst the entertainment of the famous Strip. Some students chose to visit the Adventure dome theme park within the hotel, others viewed the pirate show at the Treasure Island Hotel. The group were spoilt for choice with activities! At 6.45pm the group had booked a dinner at the famous Rainforest Café; an incredible restaurant which replicates the setting of a tropical rainforest!
Another early start as they departed the hotel at 6.45am to travel to the Grand Canyon for a bus tour. Here they ventured through Kingman to Williams, which is home to the Grand Canyon Railway. The group stopped here for lunch and a spot of relaxing whilst they gazed out over the scenic views. Next they arrived at the Grand Canyon National Park where they experienced the Mather Point, the deepest part of the Canyon! Yavapai Point was also spotted which is the widest point, as well as Bright Angel Point which beholds the most panoramic views. This was an unforgettable visit for the group and one which would be truly inspirational!
At 8pm the group arrived at Circus Circus hotel for an evening meal and once again enjoyed the remainder of the day exploring the hotel’s many attractions.
At 8.30am the group checked out of the hotel and departed for Oakhurst. The scenery en route was spectacular and the group had opportunities to step out of the coach and take photographs.
After a day on the road, the group arrived at Shilo Inn Suites, their second hotel. Following this they walked to the nearby Todd’s BBQ Buffet where they ate to their heart’s content. Here they enjoyed the jubilant atmosphere and chatted about their experiences so far. At 9.30pm the group returned to the hotel where they settled in for the night.
The group enjoyed their breakfast at the hotel, still feeling slightly full from the night before. They set off for Yosemite National Park arriving at about 10.30am. They saw the panoramic landscape of El Capitan, Bridalveil Falls, and the Half Dome. On this trip the group found a lot of respect for the impressive power of nature. The group also had the opportunity to stop for lunch and refreshments in the Village area of The National Park, where many enjoyed ice creams in the sunny weather.
After a day in Yosemite National Park, the group’s next destination was the city of San Francisco. They arrived at 1.30pm and checked into the Adante Hotel where they spent the afternoon settling in and exploring the area.
The group joined together for an evening meal at the Hard Rock Café, in great spirits after a very rewarding trip that was only half way through!
The group woke up for breakfast at 8am and departed for a guided sightseeing tour of San Francisco. To their delight they saw the Civic Centre, the famous Opera House and the Pacific Ocean to name but a few! Later, they stepped off the coach to explore the town of Sausalito on foot. From here the photo opportunities were rife; Twin Peaks, Palace of Fine Arts, Golden Gate Bridge and the view of Alcatraz Island from the Vista Point North. This day was full of astounding panoramic views and famous landmarks. As well as this, the group enjoyed a ferry ride around The Island of Alcatraz which is famous for its use as a prison!
At 6pm, the group returned to the hotel again and made the most of the facilities for the remainder of the evening as well as eating at a nearby restaurant.
This day was devoted to travelling from San Francisco to Los Angeles The group were fairly tired after their long journey and chose to spend the remainder of the day resting for the next big day ahead.
The group set off to see all the famous sights of Los Angeles on a guided sightseeing tour. They toured Hollywood and made sure to take photos of the Hollywood Sign for their friends back home! The group were fascinated by seeing so many of the landmarks in real life that they are so-used to seeing on the television! The group had plenty of time to get off the coach, too, venturing onto the streets of Beverly Hills, visiting Mann’s Chinese Theatre and shopping on Rodeo Drive.
Another day was spent exploring Los Angeles, this time it was the beautiful beaches including Venice Beach and Long Beach. The evening meal was taken at Bubba Gump’s Restaurant.
Today the group travelled back to Las Vegas. Once back in the entertainment capital, the group went to the Stratosphere Hotel where the highlight was a rollercoaster on the roof! The coach remained with the group to take them back to Circus Circus for the final night of their epic tour.
Unfortunately, the group’s final day had arrived and, after packing their belongings and checking out of Circus Circus, they took some time to pick up their last few souvenirs and goodies before heading back to the airport at 2pm. Their flight departed at just after 5.30pm landing back in the UK at 10.30 the following day. What a fantastic tour!
