Day 2

Zion National Park…

The towering red sandstone walls of Zion are magnificent! Hike the world famous Narrows, a river walk through the canyon, the Emerald Pools past waterfalls, or the magnificent Angel’s Landing Trail for a panoramic view of the canyon. We’ll continue our journey to cookout and camp just outside of our next great destination…

Day 3

Bryce Canyon National Park…

Almost out of a fairy tale Bryce is nothing like you’ve ever seen. Spend the day among the “HooDoos” by hiking the Navajo Loop and Queen’s Garden Trails, or stare at the maze of ancient sandstone spires from the rim of the canyon. Later, we’ll drive to camp near Grand Canyon.

Day 4

Grand Canyon National Park…

You’ll never forget the serene beauty of North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park! Lazily Enjoy breathtaking views while strolling along the rim of this vast canyon. Hike into the canyon to the Supai Tunnel, or take an optional mule ride down into this ‘erosion gone wild’! ($75 half day recommended)

Day 5

Monument Valley…

Wake to an incredible sunrise among the famous mesas and buttes of Monument Valley. After a tasty southwestern style breakfast, take a Navajo guided jeep tour to see the monuments up close. We’ll continue on to Moab past more unique landscapes. Later, we’ll stroll into town for dinner at the Moab Brewery.

Day 6

Arches National Park…

Spend the day hiking among giant natural sandstone arches sculpted by wind and time in the Devil’s Garden. There is no other place like this in the world! Later we’ll cool off in a swim hole or campground pool, toast some marshmallows around the campfire, or sample the brews of Moab!

Day 7

Free Day in Moab, Utah…

Raft the Colorado, mountain bike, horseback ride, rent a jeep, try your hand at canyoneering, or relax and shop in Moab for the day. ($20-$80). We’ll assist you in setting up your day’s adventure by recommending reliable companies. In the evening, we recommend taking a sunset tour into Moab’s beautiful outback on the unique UniMog. ($35)

Day 8

Day 9

Yellowstone National Park…

Begin the day by breathing some fresh mountain air in the world’s first national park, Yellowstone! Hike past Fountain Paint Pots, Morning Glory Geyser, and of course the most famous geyser, Old Faithful. Watch Old Faithful erupt boiling water and stream 30 meters into Wyoming’s blue sky. Later, warm your toes around a cozy campfire.

Day 10

Yellowstone National Park…

Explore the “Grand Canyon of Yellowstone” with its 300 ft waterfalls, raging Yellowstone River, and wildflower meadows. Watch bison grazing in Haydn Valley. Later, we’ll peek inside the bubbling Dragon’s Cauldron and end the day with a campfire under the stars.

Day 11

Grand Teton National Park…

Grand Teton National Park is known for its sharp, snow capped peaks and excellent hiking trails. We’ll visit the Colter Bay area first, and let you loose to hike past serene Jackson, Heron and Swan Lakes where it is likely you’ll spot deer, moose or elk! Rent a canoe to explore the nearby inlets, or take a scenic boat ride around the lake.
