After landing in Vegas, pick up your rental car and set off towards the Utah town of Springdale, where you’ll find the charming Cliffrose Lodge, just a stone’s throw from Zion National Park. After a night to settle in, the next day is all about adventure as you embark on a customisable, privately guided tour in and around Zion. Options include exhilarating hiking, an introduction to canyoneering, a dip in a secluded desert oasis or exploring a whacky western ghost town, stopping to refuel with a gourmet picnic lunch.
After driving to the town of Tropic, park your car and join a local driver guide for an unforgettable tour of the breathtaking Bryce Canyon National Park. A hiking route can be tailored to your interests and skill level – from an easy walk along the amphitheatre for a unique view of the park’s geology to a challenging hike down to the canyon floor. All the while, spot the fascinating ‘hoodoo’ rock formations that are often said to evoke gothic churches, castles, animals and even people! Enjoy a picnic lunch among a grove of 2000-year-old bristlecone pine trees, then continue onwards to the best viewpoints that the Bryce Canyon has to offer.
Enjoy a long, scenic drive along Utah’s famed ST 12 highway - considered one of the most beautiful byways in the nation - breaking for a guided off-road Jeep tour of the stunning Capitol Reef National Park. With your former ranger guide, explore 200 million years of geologic history revealed through white sandstone domes and rocky cliffs that are said to resemble capitol buildings and coral reefs. Admire Navajo petroglyphs and dinosaur bones before stopping for a scenic picnic lunch, then make your way to one of the park's major highlights– the awe-inspiring Temple of the Sun and The Moon. Then, continue by road to Sorrel River Ranch Resort & Spa.
Spend the day exploring the stunning landscapes of the Arches and Canyonlands National Park with a private driver-guide. You will begin with a visit to the iconic Island in the Sky mesa in Canyonlands, before descending the steep trails of the Shafer Trail, soaking up sensational views over the Colorado River. Next, it’s time to explore Arches National Park to the surreal Devil’s Garden - a striking series of rock fins and arches – where you’ll enjoy a delightful deli-style lunch. Continue your day with a 4x4 tour across valleys, past famed geologic formations and natural arches – including the Marching Men, Tower Arch, and the Eye of the Whale. Head back to the hotel via an old cowboy trail and stop to see dinosaur tracks.
Your final full day in Utah is spent on a river cruise along the mighty Colorado River, passing majestic canyons and more stunning scenery, including Dead Horse Point. Disembark for a short hike to spot Indian rock art and ancient ruins, before returning to Moab.
Embark on a customisable, privately guided tour in and around Zion National Park. Choose from various activities amid the park’s striking scenery - whether a scenic hike, an introduction to the thrills of canyoneering, a dip in a secluded desert oasis or exploring a whacky western ghost town, stopping to refuel with a gourmet picnic lunch.
Bryce Canyon is made up of multiple natural amphitheatres or bowls, carved into the edge of a high plateau. The most famous of these is the Bryce Amphitheatre, filled with irregularly eroded spires of rocks called hoodoos. Your guide will lead you on an exploration of the otherworldly magic of Bryce Canyon National Park by taking a scenic, educational walk along the rim, or hiking down to the bottom of the canyon floor to get a closer look! Your tour will be customised to your level of fitness and interests, and your guide will answer any questions you have about this astonishing national park.
The captivating Capitol Reef National Park boasts around 200 million years of geologic history, evident in its intricate landforms, Navajo petroglyphs and even dinosaur remains. Discover all of this and more on a guided Jeep tour with an ex-park ranger, who will also show you to one of the park's major highlights– the awe-inspiring elevation summit Temple of the Sun and The Moon.
Join a private guide/driver to first experience the iconic landforms and scenery of the Canyonlands National Park – from the Island in the Sky mesa (or hill) and the river-view Shafer Trail. Then, sit back and prepare to be dazzled as your guide navigates the incredible red rock wonderland and striking sandstone formations of Arches National Park. Follow your guide to far reaches of the park, enjoying the raw beauty of its monuments – including Devil’s Garden arch.
Your driver guide will pick you up from your hotel and take you on a sightseeing river cruise on the mighty Colorado River. Enjoy a mild ride that will allow you to meander deep within majestic sandstone canyons and take in the grandeur of this stunning natural area. Float past Dead Horse Point as you delight in unrivalled views of some of the most photographed scenery in the world, then break for a short hike to see Indian rock art and ruins.
Summers can get very hot and the winters can be harsh, meaning spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) are the best times to visit Utah.
