6. Las Vegas: 7-Day Utah, Arizona and Nevada Self-Drive Tour
Hit the open road on this road trip across the National Parks of Utah, Arizona and Nevada. Drive in the safety of your car, and meet up with certified guides at each park so you don't miss a thing.
Day 1: Zion National Park - Leaving the bright lights of Las Vegas behind you, head out to Utah’s finest National Park. Massive canyon walls and red sandstone cliffs ascend toward a brilliant blue sky. Challenge yourself to what’s considered the best half-day hike in the southwest by hiking a narrow ridge line to Angels Landing. Take it easy exploring the pristine Emerald pools, or enjoy a river hike deep in the narrows.
Day 2: Bryce National Park - Reach an elevation of 8000 ft in Bryce National Park. Take a stroll along the rim and marvel at the unique sandstone spires (hoodoos) that rise dramatically from the desert floor. Hike down into the hoodoos for an up-close experience with this fascinating landscape. A soak in the outdoor hot tub back at camp will ease those hiking muscles and a night around the campfire will end this day nicely.
Day 3-4: Arches and Canyonlands National Parks - Explore this stunning landscape and enjoy watching the sunset over the canyons. Visit Arches National Park, home to over 2000 arches, for a hike up to Delicate Arch. Enjoy walks in Canyonlands National Park, where the Green river meets the Colorado in some of the most spectacular scenery the South-West has to offer. Swap tales of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid who used the canyons to hide from the law in the late 1800s, visit the local town and enjoy Utah’s greatest adventure capital.
Day 5: Monument Valley - The background for many famous western movies and home to the Navajo Indians, you are in for a real treat today. Hop onboard a 4X4 jeep and enjoy a Navajo guided tour of Monument Valley. Camp right along the rim and get ready to gaze up at the amazing starry skies and bag your front-row seat to a magnificent sun rise.
Day 6: Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend, Grand Canyon national park - Today you have the option to add on an optional excursion to visit Antelope Canyon. Then, join a scenic walk to view Horseshoe Bend, before heading to the Grand Canyon. Hike into one of the deepest and most diverse canyons on Earth. In the evening, admire the views before one last cookout with your new friends.
Day 7: Las Vegas - After heading down Route 66, arrive back in Sin City with plenty of time to relax poolside before heading for the strip.
