    Grand Canyon National Park

    Day 2. From Sedona’s red rocks to the ultimate Grand Canyon tour.  On this first day of your Southwest and Grand Canyon tour, stop in Sedona – home to famous red-rock formations with whimsical names like the Mittens and the Rabbit Ears, and the backdrop for many western movies and TV shows – and have lunch on your own in this intriguing town shaped by early settlers, cowboys, artists and Hollywood celebrities. Wind through Oak Creek Canyon en route to Grand Canyon National Park. Arrive at your inside-the-park lodge on the South Rim of the amazing Grand Canyon, carved over millions of years by the Colorado River, and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Tonight, enjoy dinner at your choice of restaurants on the canyon’s rim at El Tovar, the Arizona Room or Bright Angel Café.  Lodging: Kachina Lodge Meals B, D

    Day 3 The Grand Canyon and a Lake Powell cruise.  You just might want to take advantage of your lodge’s ideal location on the South Rim by waking early enough to catch one of nature’s grandest shows – a Grand Canyon sunrise! Learn about the geology and wildlife of the region from a local geology expert in a perfect location, right on the rim. And no Grand Canyon tour would be complete without exploring the canyon rim and Canyon Village as you please, witnessing the rugged landscape’s vast grandeur and changing colors as the sun climbs in the sky. Travel through the Navajo Reservation en route to the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and Lake Powell, one of the largest man-made lakes in the world, for a two-night stay. Tonight, a true highlight – a private Lake Powell dinner cruise aboard the sleek double-decked yacht Canyon Princess.  Lodging  Lake Powell Resort.  Meals B, D

    Bryce 17
    Bryce Canyon National Park

    Day 4. Flightseeing and canyon views at Lake Powell.  See remote corners of 186-mile-long Lake Powell – created from the Colorado River by the Glen Canyon Dam in the 1960s – from a variety of perspectives. First take an included early morning, 45-minute flight* to see the unusual red-rock formations reflecting in the lake; see Rainbow Bridge, the world’s largest natural arch. Then take a private boat cruise and guided tour to view Antelope Canyon, one of the incredible sandstone slot canyons in the Navajo Nation – among the most beautiful in the Southwest, hidden to most visitors – where beams of sunlight put on an amazing show. You also have the possibility today (at an additional cost of £130) to take a four-hour excursion to Monument Valley* in the Navajo Nation, made famous as a setting of many westerns by director John Ford; combine aerial sightseeing with a land tour by a Navajo guide through rock buttes and spires – ask at time of booking.  Lodging: Lake Powell Resort Meals B, D

    Zion-Natl-Park
    Zion National Park

    Day 5. Rafting on the Colorado River and on to Bryce Canyon.  This morning’s float trip* on the muddy waters of the Colorado River takes you through Glen Canyon; your experienced river adventure guide imparts a wealth of knowledge about the canyon as you glide past colorful walls of Navajo sandstone. Utah’s iconic landscapes have served as ideal locations for movie and TV westerns over the years; view them on an afternoon drive to Bryce Canyon National Park – a wondrous land of pines, pinnacles and oddly sculpted formations known as hoodoos, resembling the towers of fairy-tale castles. Magnificent spires, tinted with shades of pink, orange and red, put on a captivating show as the light changes throughout the day. Keep an eye open for the park’s abundant wildlife, including elk, coyotes, marmots, and prairie dogs, as you explore the park from your sought-after accommodations at The Lodge at Bryce Canyon. Listed on the National Historic Register, The Lodge is nestled in a forest of towering ponderosa pines in the heart of the park. Lodging: The Lodge at Bryce Canyon. Meals B, L, D

    Day 6. Explore Bryce Canyon and Zion national parks.  If you rise early this morning, you’ll be rewarded with an awe-inspiring Bryce Canyon sunrise, as the light of dawn slowly spreads across the hoodoos and other unique geological features steps from your room at The Lodge at Bryce Canyon! Spend the morning at leisure, perhaps venturing out on one of the park’s renowned hiking trails to observe a great variety of bird species, beautiful wildflowers and diverse wildlife. After lunch, travel across southwestern Utah to Zion National Park, where colorful sandstone canyons and 3,000-foot-high palisades tower above the lush greenery of the canyon floor. The park’s shuttle system and network of hiking trails afford access to its key geologic features – thriving vegetation includes cottonwood trees and dry desert plants; wildlife ranges from mule deer to hundreds of bird species. Spend the night at the restored Zion Lodge, the only hotel accommodation inside the park.  Lodging: Zion Lodge. Meals B, L, D

    Welcome Sign saying "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Nevada"
    Welcome to Las Vegas

    Day 7.  From Zion National Park to a finale in Las Vegas.  The morning is yours to explore Zion’s diverse geological features at leisure; its dramatic peaks and cliffs, odd geologic formations, desert oases featuring abundant pools and waterfalls, and mighty canyons splashed with vivid colors are all equally compelling. The Paiutes believed this place to be the home of their coyote spirit, Sinawava, while early Mormon visitors referred to it as “the natural temples of God.” Highlights include a trio of peaks known as the Three Patriarchs; the Emerald Pools, fed by waterfalls cascading over the canyon walls; and the veil of spring water trickling over Weeping Rock. Depart Zion National Park for a memorable journey across the vast, colorful vistas of the northeastern Mojave Desert. Then get ready for a bit of culture shock as you arrive in Las Vegas, Nevada – a city that truly never sleeps, offering non-stop entertainment and fancifully themed casinos. Accommodations tonight are at the Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas, providing easy access to the famed Strip – and yet the hotel is a welcoming oasis unto itself. Wrap up your Zion, Bryce Canyon and Grand Canyon tour with a farewell reception and dinner at the Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas, one last chance to share travel memories with new friends.  Lodging: Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas. Meals B, L, D
