Day 1

Depart Salt Lake City 2:00 PM…

We start this fantastic trip by picking up you and your fellow Adventurers in Salt Lake City.
We’ll prep you for your adventure and then enjoy a comfortable journey to camp outside our first national park…

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. Next we’ll drive to camp out near Grand Canyon.

Day 4

Grand Canyon National Park…

You’ll never forget the serene beauty of North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park! Enjoy breathtaking views while strolling along the rim of this vast canyon. Hike into the canyon to the Supai Tunnel.

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, UT past more unique landscapes.  Later we’ll stroll into town for dinner at the Moab Brewery. Yum!

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 or kayak the Colorado, 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

We’ll roll back into Salt Lake City between 10-12noon, exchange emails so we can share photos, and say our goodbyes to all of our new friends!
