Welcome to the neon city in the Nevada desert, Las Vegas.

A welcome meeting will be held at approximately 6:00 pm with free time afterward to explore the cityscape at night and see the neon lights in all their glory.

Overnight at OYO Las Vegas Hotel & Casino (or similar)

Optional activities:

  • Go-karting $26
  • Vegas Strip Helicopter flight $124
  • Roller coasters $25-40

After leaving Las Vegas, you'll travel through desert landscapes before arriving in Utah and the Zion National Park. Upon arrival, your leader will take you on a walk to Emerald Pools as an introduction to the Zion National Park.

You can find some of the best hiking in the desert terrain of the southwest here, in and around the fertile Virgin River Gorge. With a two-night stay, you'll have plenty of time to discover Zion. 

Overnight at La Quinta Inn & Suites (or similar)

Distance covered: 3 miles (5 km)
Total ascent: 148 ft (45 m)

Today is all about exploring Zion National Park and its vast network of trails. There are many great trails but a really good option to start with is the Watchman Trail. It is a steady uphill climb to the viewpoint which offers stunning views of Watchman Peak.

In the afternoon, you can take a walk beside the Virgin River or if weather conditions permit, hike deep into the Zion Narrows — a stunning water channel where you'll witness some outstanding scenery. Staying dry is not an option as you wade through the Virgin River between towering walls and the cool waters and the shadow of the canyon will provide a much-needed break from the sun.

Another hike option is Angels Landing, which due to its popularity cannot be booked by a tour operator and requires individual customers to apply for a permit via a seasonal lottery. Feel free to ask us about this option upon booking. 

Overnight at La Quinta Inn & Suites (or similar)

Meals included: Breakfast
Distance covered: 5 miles (8 km)
Total ascent: 1486 ft (453 m)

Driving out of Zion National Park we climb in elevation to almost 8,296 ft (2528 m) and traverse a high plateau to Bryce Canyon National Park. Bryce Canyon is a fascinating natural amphitheater of pink, orange and white sandstone spires, known locally as hoodoos. There are a variety of scenic overlooks and trails that range in difficulty.

The Navajo or Peek-a-Boo Loop trails will enable you to hike right in amongst these unique rock formations with your tour leader. Some of you may prefer to remain on the rim and photograph the ever-changing shadows and hues as the sun makes its way across the wide-open sky. The inspiring hoodoos will surely make a lasting impression and leave you yearning for more.

Overnight at Best Western Plus Ruby's Inn (or similar)

Optional activities:

  • Western horseback riding at Bryce $65-$90

Meals included: Breakfast
Distance covered: 6 miles (9 km) 
Total ascent: 1434 (437 m)

On day 5, you'll head to the Arches National Park. Stunning red sandstone arches have been created over millions of years here by the whipping winds that brush down the western slope of the Rocky Mountains. The park offers hiking trails through spectacular sandstone landscapes with intriguing names like the Devil's Garden. One of the more widely recognized arches, and by far the most visited, is the Delicate Arch at 65 ft (213 m) which is a freestanding arch that has become one of Utah's most famous icons. 

On Day 6 you'll walk on the Primitive Trail to Double O Arch, with free time in the afternoon to spend the afternoon ‘off the trail’, experiencing the charms of Moab - the small eclectic town that serves as the gateway to both Arches and Canyonlands.

Day 7 is mostly a free day for optional activities, but your leader will take you on a very short scenic walk to view Mesa Arch before an afternoon drive out to Canyonlands National Park. You’ll also experience the iconic view at Dead Horse Point of the Colorado River snaking its way through the water channels.

Overnight at Adventure Inn Moab (or similar)

Optional Activities:

  • Mountain biking $60
  • Extreme off-road hummer tour $79

Distance covered: 6 miles (10 km) 
Total ascent: 289 ft (88 m)

Today you'll travel south-east to the Navajo Nation's greatest treasure — the Monument Valley. A sacred land to those who call it home, the red sandstone monoliths have been the backdrop to countless Western movies. After arriving at the hotel, you'll go on a backcountry 4x4 (vans in winter) driving tour, heading deep into the heart of the valley.

After stops to photograph both the famous and lesser-known sights in the park, you'll arrive at "the end of the road". Your local Navajo guide will then lead you even deeper into the park on foot where you'll be walking to explore places that very few non-Native Americans ever get to see.

Overnight at Kayenta Monument Valley Inn (or similar)

Distance covered: 3 miles (5 km)

On to Grand Canyon National Park; one of those rare places that has yet to be adequately described, painted or photographed in its entirety. This incredible spectacle is difficult to comprehend, even as you stand at the rim or hike down into the canyon.

Carved over several millennia, this massive wonder of nature is 277 miles (445 km) long, up to 18 miles (29 km) wide and over one mile deep (1.6km). Snaking through the canyon floor is the mighty Colorado River, which runs 1,450 miles (2,330 km) through seven US states and two Mexican states.

Watch as the sun sets on this incredible place and attempt to comprehend this canyon's staggering proportions and power. There are many rim trail walks that you can enjoy using the park's transport or the park ranger's guided nature walk. Or, you might simply want to sit in quiet contemplation on the edge of this natural wonder.

With an entire day free, we highly recommend lacing up your hiking boots and walking the Bright Angel Trail down to Plateau Point. For a unique bird's eye view, opt for a scenic flight over the canyon, offering perspectives that cannot be seen when visiting on foot.

Note: Grand Canyon National Park regulations limit group size and do not allow guided hikes. Your tour leader will provide briefings, directions and maps, but are not permitted by the National Park Service to walk with you on the trails.

Overnight at Yavapai Lodge (or similar)

Optional activities:

  • Grand Canyon helicopter flight $289

Distance covered: 11 miles (17 km)
Total ascent: 2,988 ft (914 m)

This morning you'll begin your journey back to the desert city of Las Vegas. En route, you'll travel along a section of the original Route 66, stopping at the town of Seligman which is filled to the brim with pure Americana. This stop makes for some wacky photos but also echoes back to a time when the mother road was the main highway to cross America.

This incredible adventure comes to an end as you return to Las Vegas. Nowhere else in the world will you find as many resort hotels, clubs and all-you-can-eat buffets, making Las Vegas the perfect place to celebrate the ending of an amazing trip.

This tour ends at your gateway hotel at approximately 5:00 pm. You can book your post-tour accommodation at the gateway hotel if required. Be sure to enjoy the evening in Las Vegas city if you can!
