“Pictures don’t do this trip justice – can’t describe the parks’ views & experience that R&J offered! Great tour director & driver – felt safe – really cared about their passengers.” Dale & Leanne, Savage MN 

Day 1 – Home to St George 

We’ll fly into Las Vegas today and then head north into Canyon Country. Our overnight is in St. George, Utah. We will check into our hotel and then enjoy a great dinner together looking forward to the awesome journey ahead of us. 

Included Meals: Dinner 

Hotel: Hilton Garden Inn 

 

Day 2 – St George to Bryce Canyon 

Motor toward spectacular Zion National Park. In sheer magnitude and color, Zion is very likely one of the most awe-inspiring National Parks in the world. We’ll enjoy a Tram ride through the Park and spend time looking up at the magnificent rock formations. A bit of time for a walk down one of the many trails will broaden your experience. Lunch will be enjoyed together at the Lodge restaurant before we continue our spectacular journey towards Bryce Canyon National Park. We’ll arrive at the Historic Ruby’s Inn, which is just outside the entrance of the Park and spend the next two nights. 

Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch 

Hotel: Ruby’s Inn 

 

Day 3 – Bryce Canyon 

Enjoy breakfast at the Inn before we embark on a day of touring spectacular Bryce Canyon National Park. Experience thousands of delicately carved spires as they rise in brilliant color from the amphitheaters of Bryce Canyon. Millions of years of wind, water and geologic mayhem have shaped and etched the cliffs at Bryce, which isn’t actually a canyon but the eastern slope of the Paunsaguant Plateau. Motor along the rim road, where magnificent spires known as “hoodoos” show colors of pink, orange, and red. We may see wildlife, including pronghorn, coyotes, marmots, and prairie dogs. Bryce Canyon is famous for its hiking trails, offering a closer look at bird species and colorful wildflowers. Return to the Inn for a restful evening. 

Included Meals: Breakfast, Dinner 

 

Day 4 – Bryce Canyon to Moab 

Today we’ll make our way to Moab, UT. Moab is just outside of Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. Our drive will take us through Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument via Scenic Byway 12, an All American Road. Traveling over the Hogback, we continue our drive toward Boulder Mountain in the Dixie National Forest and on towards Capital Reef National Park. This is one of the most spectacular roads in America as we are awed by the scenery around us. Enjoy dinner at the Red Cliffs Lodge on the banks of the Colorado River. 

Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner 

Hotel: Red Cliffs Lodge (2 Nights) 

 

Day 5 – Arches & Canyonlands Nat’l Park 

Today we tour Arches National Park which contains the world’s largest concentration of natural stone arches. This National Park is a red, arid desert, punctuated with oddly eroded sandstone forms such as fins, pinnacles, spires, balanced rocks, and arches truly “miracles of nature.” Canyonlands National Park includes a huge area of rugged land west and south of Moab, Utah. It consists of canyons and plateaus carved by two mighty rivers – the Colorado and the Green. Later we’ll return to the Lodge for a restful evening. 

Included Meals: Breakfast, Box Lunch, Dinner 

 

Day 6 – Moab to Lake Powell 

Our first stop today will be at the Navajo Nation Visitor Center at Monument Valley. Here we will have a spectacular view of some of the iconic rock formations in the Valley. We’ll see uniquely shaped monoliths, buttes, and mesas of red sandstone from this great vantage point. Can you picture those cowboys on horseback riding across the screen in a John Wayne western? Enjoy a Navajo Taco lunch and then we’ll have time to visit the Trading Post before we continue on towards Lake Powell. Next we’ll stop at Glen Canyon Dam and see how power is supplied to much of the area. We’ll then check into the Lake Powell Resort for a two night stay and enjoy a special dinner this evening in the Rainbow Room! 

Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner 

Hotel: Lake Powell Resort (2 Nights) 

 

Day 7 – Lake Powell 

After enjoying breakfast at the resort, our first adventure will be a walking tour of Antelope Canyon. Get an upclose opportunity to view the narrow, colorful, and sculpted geology as you walk through the sandstone walls of this slot canyon. Later climb aboard rafts for an afternoon float trip down the Colorado River through the awesome Glen Canyon with sandstone cliffs that rise a half mile above us. A day you will long remember. 

Included Meals: Breakfast 

 

Day 8 – Grand Canyon 

Enjoy a morning breakfast cruise on Lake Powell – a beautiful way to begin our day. Then we’ll travel to the magnificent Grand Canyon for a jawdropping experience. One of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Grand Canyon is more than one mile deep and many miles wide – it is one of nature’s most spectacular examples of erosion. The first glimpse of the Grand Canyon is always breathtaking with its stunning color and vastness. We’ll motor along the canyon rim taking time for photo stops. Later we’ll enjoy dinner, and look for the sunset over the canyon. 

Included Meals: Breakfast, Dinner 

Hotel: Yavapai Lodge 

 

Day 9 – Grand Canyon to Las Vegas
