Tour Antelope Canyon, overnight in Monument Valley and gaze into the mysterious depths of the Grand Canyon before heading back to the entertainment capital of the world – Las Vegas!
Cut by the Virgin River, Zion Canyon is an impressive mix of white, pink and red Navajo sandstone cliffs. Ancient petrified sand dunes towering over 2000ft above the canyon floor make for an impressive landscape. A photographer’s paradise. Zion National Park offers enchanting walks & hikes for every fitness level. Choose a stroll around the Emerald Pools trail, enjoy the Temple of Sinawava, the Great White Throne or Weeping Rock. Visit the interpretive Human History museum where you can enjoy an entertaining rangers talk on the patio. After exploring Zion for approx. 2.5 hours we head to Bryce Canyon. A giant natural amphitheater created by erosion along the eastern side of the Paunsaugunt Plateau, Bryce is distinctive due to geological structures called hoodoos. These red, orange, and white spires provide spectacular views for park visitors. Bryce Canyon is considered by many to be the most scenically diverse place in the world!
