Bally’s Las Vegas Hotel & Casino Day 2: Las Vegas – Zion National Park Depart Las Vegas for Zion National Park, this area effortlessly mixes peaceful beauty with powerful landscapes and the tree-lined Virgin River supports fragile flora and fauna as it meanders below massive, cathedral-like sandstone walls. Zion Canyon offers some of the best hiking in the Southwest USA. La You have a full day to further explore the delights of Zion National Park. There are various hikes to choose from, ranging from easy to strenuous. The challenging hike to Angels Landing is epic and the reward once at the top, is one of the most breathtaking panoramas you’ve ever laid eyes on. For a less strenuous walk, take one of the short hikes from the valley floor to view the Lower Emerald Pools then continue on to the sparkling Upper Emerald Pools, passing a waterfall along the way to discover Zion’s ‘beach’. Cool off from the summer sun by exploring the riverside walk section of the Virgin River. (B) Day 4: Zion National Park - Bryce Canyon National Park Leaving Zion National Park, you climb in elevation to almost 8,296 feet and traverse a high plateau to Bryce Canyon National Park, a fascinating natural amphitheatre of pink, orange and white sandstone spires, known locally as hoodoos. There are a variety of scenic overlooks and trails that range from easy to moderate in difficulty. The Navajo or Peek-a-Boo Loop trails will enable you to hike right in amongst these unique rock formations. (B) Best Western Plus Ruby’s Inn Day 5: Bryce Canyon National Park - Monument Valley Today, you travel southeast along the border of Utah and Arizona and make a stop at the immense Glen Canyon Dam en route to Monument Valley in the heart of the Navajo Nation.

array of rock formations on an included guided back roads tour to learn the magic and myth of the rich Native American culture.

Kayenta Monument Valley Inn Days 6 & 7: Grand Canyon National Park Continue south through the Navajo Reservation to the Cameron Trading Post to shop for local jewellery, crafts and cultural souvenirs. Begin your visit at eastern entrance of the mighty Grand Canyon where you’ll catch your first glimpse of it at Desert View. This incredible spectacle is difficult to comprehend, even as you stand at the rim or hike down into the canyon. There is plenty of free-time to explore the numerous scenic trails and we highly recommend a scenic helicopter flight over the canyon, offering perspectives you simply can’t see by just visiting on foot. Red Feather Lodge (2 nights) Day 8: Grand Canyon - Route 66 - Las Vegas From the epic Grand Canyon, you’ll travel onto Seligman, where you’ll stop for an optional lunch at the Snow Cap Diner along a section of the iconic Route 66 before returning to the bright lights of Vegas for approximately 17:00hrs.
