Amangiri resides in a prestigious location, surrounded as it is by the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, the Grand Staircase-Escalante, Bryce and Zion National Parks; an area that once accommodated dinosaurs and which today – arid desert conditions notwithstanding – now supports a remarkable diversity of plant and animal life, including the endangered California condor. Guests can embark on a variety of hiking trails – either on foot or horseback – to explore the striking desert scenery that surrounds Amangiri; trails are well marked and maintained allowing for self-guided outings, for which maps are provided. Alternatively, the Grand Canyon National Park is just two and a half hours from Amangiri by car and trips can be made to both the south and north rims (summer months only) for iconic views, historical buildings, bird watching and more hiking trails.

Highlights+

Native Americans
Utah is home to five distinct American Indian cultures (Navajo, Goshute, Paiute, Shoshone and the Ute for which it is believed the state is named), their unique heritage is present throughout the state forming a web of sacred places, dwelling sites, and intriguing rock art messages.

Lake Powell
At 186-miles long, Lake Powell is the second largest man-made lake in the United States - it was created in 1957 by damming the Colorado River at Glen Canyon – and has a shoreline longer than the Pacific Coast. Sweeping through the seemingly endless stretch of canyons, the lake incorporates many beaches along its secluded bays, its blue waters turning warm around early June and staying that way well into October, providing endless opportunities for boating, water-skiing, kayaking and fishing.

Monument Valley
Don’t be surprised if Monument Valley (Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park) feels familiar; located within the Navajo Reservation and run by the Navajo Nation, the largest and most influential Indian tribe in North America, it’s been the setting for more Western movies than any other site in the United States including John Wayne’s 1938 Hollywood hit ‘Stagecoach’.

Travel Gems+

Beach Hopping at Amangiri
As well as being a natural playground, Utah offers amusement and water parks, zoos and a dinosaur museum. Spend the day exploring the canyons by water – jump aboard a high-speed motorboat and travel the turquoise waters of Lake Powell, (named in honour of John Wesley Powell, the civil war veteran and one-armed explorer who led the first successful scientific expedition down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon) admiring the stunning geological formations en route and stopping off at one of the river’s beautiful sandy beaches for a picnic lunch.

Climate+

Generally, summers tend to 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.

Travel Documentation+

Travelling With Children or Without an Adult

Children travelling without both parents should be aware that some countries require documentary evidence of parental responsibility before allowing lone parents to enter the country (for example, South Africa) or, in some cases, before permitting the children to leave the country. Please contact the relevant Embassy for the county you are travelling to for further information.

Visa and Advance Passenger Information

All passengers must ensure they have a valid, acceptable passport, any required visa and any other documentation for both the final destination and any stop-off points en route. Please make sure that Advance Passenger Information is submitted in advance to travel for all destinations. Failure to hold correct documentation or submitting incorrect details with Advance Passenger Information or Visa applications may result in refusal of carriage or entry into a country. Please check with the relevant Embassy regarding visa requirements well in advance of your travel date. Charges may apply for some visas.

Travel Advice Update
The FCO travel advice for the USA has been updated with an amendment to the Entry requirements section - on 18 December 2015, the US Congress passed a Bill updating the requirements for the Visa Waiver Programme (VWP); under the new rules, with effect from 1 April 2016 all travellers wishing to enter the US under the VWP will need to hold a passport with an integrated chip.

The web-based Electronic System for Travel Authorisation (ESTA) requires all passengers (including infants) travelling via or to the USA to apply for authority to travel a minimum of 72 hours prior to travel. You may be denied boarding or refused entry to the US if you have not registered and obtained authorisation. To apply visit the official website: https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/esta/   A charge of UD$14 per person (subject to change) will apply and must be paid by either credit or debit card.

Customs and Border Protection programme Global Entry gets pre-approved travellers through border control faster at some US airports. If you’re a British citizen and a frequent visitor to the USA you can now register to get a UK background check on www.gov.uk/apply-faster-entry-usa. If you pass the background checks, you’ll be invited to apply for Global Entry.

Passengers not travelling on a British Passport are advised to contact their relevant Foreign & Commonwealth office for individual Visa requirements.

Health+

Health facilities, hygiene and disease risks vary worldwide and you should take health advice about your specific needs from your general practitioner or a specialist clinic as early as possible before travel. Those planning to become pregnant should discuss their travel plans with their healthcare provider to assess their risk of infection with Zika. For information about Zika, other mosquito-borne diseases (such as Dengue fever and Chikungunya), Lyme Disease (caused by tick bites), and to receive advice on mosquito bite avoidance measures, please visit http://travelhealthpro.org.uk/insect-tick-bite-avoidance/

In addition, we highly recommend that you seek specialist advice from your doctor and, where recommended, obtain vaccinations or tablets for protection against, for example: Malaria, Hepatitis A, Polio and Typhoid. In some cases, treatments for Malaria should begin well in advance of travel. Travellers may also be required to show Yellow Fever Certificates on arrival in certain destinations ie, some African countries. Please note that you are strongly advised against scuba-diving for 24 hours before travelling by air. We would also like to draw your attention to the risk of DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) and recommend that you consult with your doctor before travelling.
