Day 4

Lake Powell - Horseshoe Bend - Lake Powell
This morning, embark on a guided rafting adventure to the iconic Horseshoe Bend and experience the peaceful grandeur of the Colorado River. Look for fish in the crystal clear water, birds nesting on the banks of the river, and possibly a herd of big horns along the way. You'll look up in awe at the soaring cliffs above Horseshoe Bend as you learn the stories of the ancestral Puebloan people who lived in the area. Later this afternoon, cruise through Wahweap Bay to the Glen Canyon Dam and enjoy the breathtaking views on the lake.


Day 5

Lake Powell - Bryce Canyon National Park - St. George, Utah
Your journey continues at Bryce Canyon National Park, famous for its ethereal spires known as hoodoos. These rock formations, created over thousands of years by wind and water, display natural orange and red hues that contrast with the deep green forests in the park. Take in the sprawling vistas as you wander along Sunset Point, leading in to Sunrise Point Rim Trail. Your day ends in St. George, Utah.


Day 6

Zion National Park
In sheer magnitude and color, few places on Earth match the beauty of Zion National Park. Marvel at red and white sandstone cliffs as you take a full day to explore Utah's first national park. Climb aboard Zion's open-air tram and wind your way alongside the Virgin River and through the 2,400-foot deep, half-mile wide Zion Canyon. This afternoon, venture off on your own to explore the park independently.


Day 7

St. George - Las Vegas, Nevada
Trade nature's beauty for the lights of the Vegas strip. This four-mile stretch of road features neon-lit resorts and around-the-clock action. This afternoon, toast to the end of your journey at a farewell lunch with your fellow travelers. Make the most of your free time this evening to experience the best that Vegas has to offer.
