Revel in the natural flora, fauna and landscape of this astonishing world wonder. Next, enjoy lunch in the dining room of the historic Hotel Tovar, which is located directly on the canyon rim. Then board a helicopter for a group tour over the Grand Canyon. Take in unforgettable, sweeping views of the canyon from a unique perspective rarely experienced by visitors to the park.

Day 4
Monument Valley | Iconic Western Vistas

Travel overland to Monument Valley, the awe-inspiring landscape immortalized by director John Ford in many a classic western movie. Marked by rugged sandstone towers that jut into the clouds, this amazing area has been known as the “land of long shadows” by local tribes for centuries. Learn about the valley’s natural and human history as a local expert leads you to landmarks only accessible with a private, licensed Navajo guide. Following lunch, set out on a scenic drive toward your next hotel near historic Bluff, Utah.

Arches National Park | Incredible Sandstone Sculptures

Today, meet your private driver-guide for a day of exploring the stunning Arches National Park. Get ready to hike and drive through the park, scoping out unusual geologic formations such as the famed Delicate Arch, the Marching Men, and the Eye of The Whale. After a picnic lunch at a scenic overlook, wander past seven distinct natural arches in the Devil’s Garden, check out the fossilized remains of real dinosaur tracks, and be treated to breathtaking vistas of the surrounding desert terrain. After your tour, transfer to the Sorrel River Ranch in Moab. Surrounded by the Colorado River, lush landscapes and majestic rock formations, Sorrel’s charming suites comfortably immerse you in the larger-than-life desert atmosphere.

Day 6
Moab | Rafting the Colorado River

Begin another rousing day of adventure, as you embark on a state-of-the-art inflatable whitewater boat and run the mighty rapids of the Colorado River. Cut through Cataract Canyon, a section of the river that travels through the center of the Canyonlands. Take in the incredible views while lazily drifting along the upper river, as your guide points out the unique onshore flora and fauna. Swim, hike or simply enjoy the sun during this excursion. Pull up on a river bank and dine on a buffet-style picnic lunch, before heading downstream to enter the much-anticipated whitewater rapids. If you prefer a less rigorous day, opt for a calm-water cruise instead. Finish the tour by zipping across Lake Powell to meet your driver-guide, and then return to your hotel.

Day 1
Capitol Reef | The Hickman Bridge Trail

Depart Moab early this morning for a fascinating ride through Utah’s badlands, home to some of the world’s richest fossil beds. Arrive at Capitol Reef National Park in time for a picnic lunch among rock towers and naturally formed arches. Then, join your guide on a hike through the park’s spectacular canyons and cliffs, including the stunning Waterpocket Fold. Next, head to Goblin Valley State Park for breathtaking photo opportunities among thousands of colorful hoodoos (rock spires).

Bryce Canyon National Park | In the Bryce Amphitheater

Wake up with the sunrise today for an early morning drive to Bryce (Canyon) National Park, where you take a breathtaking hiking tour. Bryce Canyon is home to some of the continent’s most intricate and detailed rock formations, as myriad red and orange hues paint the landscapes of pyramidal towers, hoodoos and more. Stop for a picnic lunch among a grove of 2,000-year-old bristlecone pine trees, and then continue to the best viewpoints the park has to offer. Enjoy a picnic lunch before your driver-guide whisks you away to your next hotel, located in Springdale — just outside Zion National Park.

Day 3
Zion National Park | Ascending Angel’s Landing

Today, ascend one of Zion’s most storied features, Angel’s Landing. Alternatively, you may opt to hike one of Zion National Park’s tamer trails if you prefer. After an early breakfast, head back into a park and begin your climb up a steep trail that has literally been cut into the face of a vertical cliff. Along the way, it passes by a cool grotto, and then up the switchbacks known as Walters Wiggles. Stop for a photo at Scout’s Lookout, and then proceed on to the final push. Hike along a sandstone fin with 700-foot drops on either side. The trail is plenty wide to feel secure, and hip-high chains are there to hold along the more treacherous parts. Finish by midafternoon and return to Springdale for a late lunch. Take some time to relax, and then enjoy an afternoon excursion to an authentic ghost town, complete with its own cabins, school house and pioneer cemetery.
