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.

Day 3 – Bryce Canyon

Enjoy breakfast at the hotel 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 elk, 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 5 – Arches & Canyonlands National 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 our hotel for a restful evening.

Included Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

 

Day 6 – Moab to Lake Powell

Travel to Monument Valley for a tour of the magnificent monuments that rise out of the ground on this Navajo Reservation. Enjoy a four-wheel drive tour of Monument Valley with the help of a knowledgeable Navajo guide. We’ll discover the area’s uniquely-shaped monoliths, buttes, and mesas of red sandstone. Lunch will be a special Navajo Cookout and we’ll keep our eyes open for wild horses running across the valley. Take a good look around, can you picture the cowboys of the old western movies riding across the desert? Later today we travel to Lake Powell where we will spend the next two nights on the banks of this spectacular Lake formed by the damming of the Colorado River.

Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

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.
