Bryce Canyon National Park | Hiking Among Hoodoos
Depart Zion and transfer to Bryce Canyon National Park, home to some of the southwest United States’ greatest geological treasures. The canyon itself is a scenic wonderland of orange, rose and tan sandstone outcroppings, including the dazzling Bryce Amphitheater, which features a forest of rock pinnacles called hoodoos that have been intricately carved by countless centuries of wind and rain. Begin your exploration with a breathtaking private hike, pausing for a picnic lunch among a grove of 2,000-year-old bristlecone pine trees, and continuing to the best viewpoints the park has to offer. Afterward, your driver-guide whisks you away to your next hotel located just outside of Capitol Reef National Park.
Capitol Reef National Park | Domes of Sandstone
Meet your private guide for an action-packed day of adventure, including hiking tailored to your skill-level and a jeep tour through the Cathedral Valley of Capitol Reef National Park. Set in the south-central desert, the park surrounds a long wrinkle in the earth called Waterpocket Fold, with layers of golden sandstone, canyons and amazing rock formations. Take in the great white domes of Navajo sandstone that characterize the park along with a natural bridge high above the Fremont River, and view many impressive sites including the Bentonite Hills, Gypsum Sinkhole, Temple of the Sun and Temple of the Moon.
Moab & Goblin Valley State Park | Otherworldly Landscapes
After an early breakfast, check out of your hotel and depart with your private driver guide for the journey to Moab. Stop along the way with your guide for exploration of Goblin Valley State Park. The park features thousands of hoodoos, referred to locally as goblins, which are formations of mushroom-shaped rock pinnacles. It's also been the filming location for several major movies, depicting other worldly locations. Proceed to Moab and your accommodations, a luxurious retreat amid the majestic Southwestern desert.
Arches & Canyonlands National Parks | Stunning Rock Formations
Explore two parks in one day as an experienced and knowledgeable guide shows you areas of Arches and Canyonlands National Parks seldom seen by other visitors. Arches features the greatest concentration of natural stone arches in the world, offering spectacular displays of the natural forces of erosion at work. Hit the trails with your guide to discover unusual geologic formations, such as the 60-foot-tall, freestanding Delicate Arch; the Marching Men, seven towers lined in a row in the Klondike Bluffs area; and the Eye of The Whale, a fin-style natural arch that’s weathered into Entrada sandstone. Learn how these dazzling rock formations came to be, as well as about the people who inhabited this area over 1,000 years ago.
Colorado River | Adventure on the Water
This morning, join your river guide for a private excursion down stretches of the Colorado River. Plunge through rapids with exotic names like Funnel Falls, Sock-It-To-Me, Last Chance, Skull Rapid and the Room-of-Doom, which surge between sandstone cliffs on the border between Utah and Colorado. Along the way, admire rare geologic formations of red sandstone over smooth black stone walls and keep watch for eagles perched in hollows high far above the river’s surface. Later, back on shore, sit down to a gourmet lunch served as you soak in the Canyon Country sun. Tonight, your evening is at leisure.
