Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

See the golden, pink and yellow sunrise over the Grand Canyon, the red and lavender shades of the Painted Desert and Sedona's red rock cliffs and buttes.

Day 1 - Arrive Las Vegas
The dazzling lights of Las Vegas set the tone for an unforgettable encounter with some of America's most iconic natural sights - a soul-stirring array of canyons, mesas and rocky cliffs. Immerse yourself in the glitz and glamour of Sin City before meeting your Travel Director and fellow travellers for a Welcome Reception.Welcome Reception
Accommodation: Tropicana Las Vegas
Meals: 1 Welcome Reception

Day 2 - Las Vegas --- Grand Canyon National Park
Say goodbye to Vegas and journey east to Grand Canyon National Park. We hit the "Mother Road" as we journey past fifties-style diners, motels and general stores - colourful highlights on a journey that will take you through stunning desert landscapes. From the iconic to the unexpected, the UNESCO-listed Grand Canyon is beyond anything you could have ever imagined. Meet your Local Specialist who will share insights into the canyon's geological marvels. Watch how the light plays on its layered cliffs, revealing a different story at every vantage point. Later, take a mental snapshot as you watch a mesmerising sunset over one of the world's seven natural wonders - its grandeur lingering far longer in our minds than the fading light glinting off its ancient rock-face.Full Breakfast
Accommodation: National Park Lodges
Meals: 1 Full Breakfast

Day 3 - Grand Canyon National Park --- Sedona
Rise early to watch the first rays of sun hit the Grand Canyon and consider an optional helicopter or fixed-wing aircraft flightseeing trip to view the canyon from the sky. Travel south through Kaibab National Forest, then wind your way along Oak Creek Canyon admiring its sea of ponderosa pines. Amidst the beautiful Red Rocks, we settle in to the artists' enclave of Sedona, our home for tonight. Spend the rest of the day relaxing or join an optional jeep experience into Red Rock Country. We dine at our hotel this evening.Full Breakfast, Dinner
Accommodation: Poco Diablo Resort
Meals: 1 Full Breakfast, 1 Dinner

Day 4 - Sedona --- Monument Valley --- Lake Powell (2 Nights)
Journey north, stopping at Cameron Trading Post to browse through Navajo handicrafts and perhaps a taste of traditional fry bread. Then, we venture forth to the badlands of the Painted Desert, whose rugged landscape changes hour-by-hour as the sun illuminates the eroded stone of the desert floor. Monument Valley is our next stop, where we'll board open-air vehicles, passing mesas and iconic rock formations that rise up from the red valley floor. We arrive on the shores of glittering Lake Powell next, surrounded by the rusty red walls of Glen Canyon. Enjoy dinner at your resort against the surreal backdrop.Full Breakfast, Dinner
Accommodation: Lake Powell Resort and Marinas (Guaranteed Lake View or Marina Rooms)
Meals: 1 Full Breakfast, 1 Dinner

Day 5 - Lake Powell
Enjoy a day to indulge your inner adventurer, spending the day exploring this exquisite lakeside setting on your terms. Perhaps rise early for an exhilarating hike, relax in the sun on the shores of this crystal-blue lake or kayak on its waters in search of secluded bays. Consider embarking on an optional raft experience^ down one of the prettiest sections of the Colorado River or take a scenic cruise on the lake, visiting exquisite Antelope Canyon.Full Breakfast
Meals: 1 Full Breakfast

Day 6 - Lake Powell --- Bryce Canyon National Park --- Zion National Park (2 Nights)
Continue your journey to the mesmerising pink, orange and red spires of Bryce Canyon National Park. Witness first-hand the eerie pillars that rise up from the desert floor - the world's largest collection of hoodoos that have eroded over millions of years. Keep a keen eye for one of the park's rare bristlecone pines, the longest-living trees known to man, then travel to Zion National Park, where we'll spend the next two nights.Full Breakfast
Accommodation: Holiday Inn Express Springdale
Meals: 1 Full Breakfast

Day 7 - Zion National Park
A full day with the freedom to explore Zion National Park and take the same paths once travelled by America's early pioneers and Native Americans. Admire the graceful slot canyons, towering cliffs and jaw-dropping monoliths, all carved out over 200 million years from the orange sandstone. Stretch your legs on a leisurely stroll along the Virgin River from the Temple of Sinawava to the start of the Zion Narrows, or hike up to the three Emerald Pools. See if you can spot the park's resident Peregrine falcons, California condors and Bald eagles, or join a park ranger to learn more about the inhabitants who live there. This evening, share your adventures with your travel companions at a festive Farewell Dinner.Continental Breakfast, Farewell Dinner
Meals: 1 Continental Breakfast, 1 Farewell Dinner

Day 8 - Zion National Park --- Depart Las Vegas
