For the first course of the season, we offer you a unique experience! Travel throughout the American West through the famous city of San Francisco, the national parks of Yosemite, Sequoia, Grand Canyon to complete a superb adventure in the city that never sleeps, Las Vegas! A unique trip this year. On your mark, Brigadiers, we are waiting for you!
An arrival in the charming city of San Francisco, beware of the vertigo at the top of the streets! A stroll on the Golden Gate is a must, who wouldn't dream of crossing this bridge in a famous yellow school bus?
Departure from San Francisco to reach the Glory Hole, 220km for approximately 3 hours’ drive before arriving at the edge of this corner of paradise. You will enjoy a relaxing day to swim in the lake using paddles, kayaks or inflatable buoys. If the weather permits, you can enjoy an outdoor film at nightfall.
We certainly arrive in the most impressive landscape in the world. Welcome to Yosemite, an extraordinary expanse of firs and wildlife. You won't be safe from running into a bear, for example! You can visit the park on foot or by bike and enjoy the view from the roof of the big yellow bus.
Yosemite is a very large park where we will have the opportunity to do various activities, mainly hiking, cycling, climbing... With a little luck, we'll have the opportunity to meet some great bears, deer and wolves!
Lost in the paths of the Sequoia park, we will have the opportunity to discover caves and trees of unlimited height! General Sherman, for example, is a sequoia over 83 metres high and is considered to be the largest living being on the planet.
After a few hours of walking in the surroundings of Sequoia you can find beautiful landscapes! Ready for Moro Rock? The ascent of the 400 steps leads you to the top of this bare granite rock: you will discover a spectacular alpine view.
Change of scenery! After several days in the forest, we will head towards a desert surrounded by colourful mountain ranges... the rock in all its forms and colours will amaze you completely.
We will then leave for Lake Mead 270 km and 3 hours of roads. This lake lost in the middle of the desert, cut by the famous Colorado River and located on the border between Nevada and Arizona will allow you to enjoy kayaks, paddles and inflatable buoys to refresh yourself in this unreal setting.
You can take advantage of the coolness of the lake to relax by the bus or rent jet skis or boats to discover this lake.
A second full day in the Grand Canyon, breath-taking landscapes... The diversity and natural and landscape uniqueness of the site have made it a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
You will then have the opportunity to choose several possible activities, hikes, bike rides, helicopter flights over the canyon, a visit to the tourist centre and its many points of view.
Depending on the time of your flight, you can enjoy the city before reaching the airport! Don't be sad to leave, we'll start over on another course?
Joining La Brigade is very easy, book your ticket, get on board and enjoy the moment!
Our big yellow bus is like your apartment or house except that it has wheels. You will find all the comfort and equipment to fully enjoy every moment while driving!
And much more!
