WHAT TO EXPECT:
Begin your day trip at your select Las Vegas hotel, where you'll meet your guide and hop aboard your coach. Head first to Beatty, Nevada, located in the Mojave Desert, for breakfast.
Travel into Death Valley National Park, stopping at Dante's View, a 5,475-foot (1,669-meter) mountain top panorama, and Badwater, the lowest spot in North America, at 282 feet (85 meters) below sea level. Check out the permanent spring-fed pool where you can actually walk on the salt flats.
Enjoy a provided boxed lunch before continuing to the Ubehebe Crater, a type of maar volcano created by steam and gas explosions when hot magma comes into contact with groundwater. Then it's on to Furnace Creek Ranch Museum, where you can learn about the history of Death Valley.
You'll also stop at the Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes to marvel at the stark, graceful curves of the sand, as well as Devil's Cornfield and Rhyolite Ghost Town.
After a full day of exploration, your day trip will conclude at your original departure point.
