Ker & Downey’s newest Majestic Masterpieces itinerary is a stylish luxury North America adventure through the United States’ most treasured marvels—its National Parks. After all, there is no need to “rough it” when Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Grand Tetons, and Yellowstone are only a private jet ride away…
This nine-day luxury North America adventure begins in Northern California amid the largest living things on earth, the Giant Sequoias of Mariposa Grove. Experience the Old World European luxury of Chateau du Sureau and set out on guided discoveries of Yosemite National Park, hiking through the park’s towering granite cliffs, dramatic waterfalls, old-growth forests, and glacier-carved valleys. John Muir, represented in both costume and character by a veteran actor, will even lead an afternoon walk to share his visions for Yosemite.
Board a private plane and travel in luxury to the south rim of the country’s most recognizable natural landmark, the Grand Canyon. Named one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, there is no better way to capture its full beauty than by exploring it by both land and air on guided hiking excursions and flightseeing tours over its ridges.
Exquisite nature deserves exquisite accommodation and is best found at the sleek all-suite hideaway of Amangiri, a modernist luxury desert oasis in the heart of Navajo country. Its unique position allows for private guided Glen Canyon floating excursions and Hummer rides in search of the abundant wildlife and sacred slot canyons and petroglyphs of this ancient land.
The highlight of any stay at Amangiri—on top of its luxurious spa and pool amenities—is a sunset horseback ride to Raven’s Nest cave, where a Native American tribal elder and storyteller recounts stories and performs native dances during a private al fresco dinner.
One last flight aboard the private jet leads to the final stop on this luxury North America adventure, Wyoming, home to Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. Amangani’s legendary chalet charm and five-star luxury create a delightful Jackson Hole retreat at the foot of the Grand Tetons, one of the most striking landscapes in the world.
After visiting the National Museum of Wildlife Art in downtown Jackson, set out on a wildlife safari through the pristine lakes and alpine terrain of Grand Teton National Park to witness the subjects first-hand. The park consists of over two hundred miles of trails and one of the most picturesque spots for a picnic, Jenny Lake.
One evening in Jackson Hole is dedicated to a private sunset horseback ride along the foot of the Tetons, a journey that promises incomparable views of the Teton Range, the National Elk Refuge, and downtown Jackson.
This luxury North America adventure concludes with an incredible flightseeing tour over Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks for a birds-eye view of their grandeur. Landing in West Yellowstone, embark on a full-day exploration of the mountain wildlands, bursting geysers, and iconic landmarks of Yellowstone National Park. Home to Old Faithful and a veritable wonderland of geothermal activity and wildlife, it’s no wonder why Yellowstone was named the nation’s first national park and remains the country’s foremost park destination. Stop for a gourmet picnic amid its marvels, soaking in the surrounding beauty one last time.
