We’re offering one Lonely Planet Traveller reader and their guest a seven-day walking tour in California, courtesy of responsibletravel.com, Grand American Adventures and the award winning Air New Zealand.
The prize includes:
- Return economy flights from London to LA with Air New Zealand

- A 7-day tour visiting Lake Tahoe, Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park, Yosemite National Park (including the Mist Trail and the John Muir Trail, with great views of El Captain and Bridalveil Falls)

The trip is designed with the eco-conscious traveller in mind – those who will appreciate close contact with the raw and rugged scenery California is famous for. You and your guest will join a group of up to 12 travellers, hiking with expert guides provided by Grand American Adventures.
You’ll visit some of the state’s most spectacular areas, starting in the Sierra Nevada mountains, home to pristine forests, wild hiking trails and sparkling Lake Tahoe. Next you’ll head to Yosemite National Park, with its sequoia trees, iconic peaks and majestic waterfalls.
Here you’ll follow the Mist Trail and John Muir Trail, which both offer outstanding views. The last leg of your trip will see you hiking through redwood groves in the beautiful Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park, before you head to the coastal city of Monterey, where you’ll have the chance to spot dolphins and whales.
