Transfer to Vegas

After early breakfast and break camp, its time to say goodbye to the desert and head to the world’s most exciting party city: Las Vegas. Hardly the most natural of landscapes, you can still expect to come face-to-face with exploding volcanoes, pirate ships, dancing fountains and – of course – world-famous casinos. Toast your achievements over a final team meal in the city that never sleeps.

There is an option, at your expense, to enjoy an entertaining limo tour of some of the city’s more iconic highlights including Freemont Street, the Las Vegas sign and the famous Strip.
