Jeep tour in Monument ValleyPhoto by: World TravelerUSA, 10 2012
During the tour, you’ll have plenty of opportunities for hiking, which is very popular inside all three national parks. Spend your first few days at Zion and Bryce Canyon parks, where you’ll have your choice of hiking trails, from strenuous to easy.
When you’re in Monument Valley, enjoy a Jeep tour led by a local Navajo guide to explore this incredible landscape of rock formations, which you may recognize from countless movies that have been filmed there, like John Wayne’s Stagecoach. Your last stop is the Grand Canyon, where you can hike along the South Rim and go an optional helicopter ride over the canyon (own expense).
All entrance fees to the national parks are included, as are six breakfasts, seven boxed lunches and six dinners.
Your camping accommodation is a two-person tent, which is shared by same-sex travelers. If you are traveling as a couple or as a group of four or more, please advise this at the time of booking in the Special Requirements box so accommodations can be made to keep your party together.
See the Itinerary section below for details on each day of the tour.
After departing Las Vegas with your guide, cross the border into Utah and arrive at Zion National Park, where massive canyon walls and red sandstone cliffs ascend toward a brilliant blue sky. Experience the beauty of Zion however you’d like during your two days here – walks and hikes are available for every fitness level. Challenge yourself to what some consider the best half-day hike in the Southwest – the narrow ridgeline to Angels Landing, which at 1,208 feet (368 meters) tall offers the best views of Zion Canyon. Or do the Narrows, a popular hike that’ll have you walking through the river, surrounded by dramatic canyon walls (weather permitting). If you’re feeling energetic, do both!
If you’re feeling less adventurous, stroll along the Emerald Pools trail, which takes you past waterfalls and other beautiful scenery; this is a great hike for kids. Or discover the Temple of Sinawava, see the Great White Throne or the Weeping Rock, or visit the interpretive Human History Museum where you can enjoy an entertaining ranger’s talk on the patio.
Two nights: Zion Campground in Springdale, UT
Day 3: Bryce National Park (B,L,D)
After breakfast, enjoy a short drive from Zion to Bryce Canyon National Park, also in Utah. Stroll along the canyon rim and marvel at the park’s unique sandstone spires – known as hoodoos – that rise dramatically from the natural amphitheater. Stay up on top to enjoy the panoramic views, or hike down into the hoodoos for an up close experience of this fascinating and unique landscape.
Back at your campground, ease your muscles – tired from three days of hiking – with a soak in the outdoor hot tub. Then enjoy time around the campfire before calling it a night.
Overnight: Ruby's Campground in Bryce Canyon City, UT
Day 4: Monument Valley (B,L,D)
Enjoy breakfast, and then hop in the minibus for the drive past Lake Powell to one of the country’s most iconic locations – Monument Valley. Home to red rock formations that rise dramatically from the stark land, Monument Valley has been the background for many western movies over the years and is home to the Navajo Native Americans. Explore the valley on a 4X4 Jeep tour led by a local Navajo guide.
When the sun goes down at your campground, gaze up at the sky and be awed by the number of stars you can see without any city lights.
Overnight: Gouldings Campground in Gouldings, UT
Days 5 and 6: Grand Canyon (B,L,D)
After breakfast and a short visit to a Navajo trading post in the morning, you’ll be on your way to what you’ve been waiting for – the Grand Canyon! Follow the mighty Colorado River through the Painted Desert to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Again, you can see the park as you’d like. Stroll along the rim at sunset, take a hike deep into the canyon, or relax at one the rim-side cafes. For an additional expense, you can take a thrilling helicopter ride over the canyon, which allows you to take in bird’s-eye views of Kaibab National Forest, the Colorado River and many of the canyon’s famous ridges and formations, such as the Dragon's Corridor.
Two nights: Mather Campground in Grand Canyon Village, AZ
Day 7: Las Vegas (B,L)
Say goodbye to the Grand Canyon and drive a bit on Route 66 as you make your way back to Las Vegas, arriving with time to hit the pool before heading out for a night on the town.
