Three day Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Bryce and more summer tour
There is a new and much better version of this tour!
Day 1 - Las Vegas to Zion National Park - 159 mi / 255.83 km - 2 3/4 hours
|Please DO NOT ORDER this tour. There is now a new version of this tour. It can be seen here. |
We'll pick you up at your Las Vegas Strip hotel at about 6.45 a.m. and travel north up interstate 15, crossing into the desolate Arizona Strip, before heading up the Virgin River Gorge and into Utah. If you are not staying on the Strip, you will need to get to one of the Strip hotels. If you take a taxi or bus, we will reimburse you a maximum of $10 towards the cost, against your receipt.
The route is picturesque in parts, and we will stop briefly in the Gorge to take pictures. There will be a comfort stop at either the small southern Utah town of St. George, or the even smaller one of Hurricane.
Day 1 - Zion National Park - About 1 3/4 hours
| ||Zion is Utah's most popular National Park, and its story is one of rock and water. |
There is a special treat in store here, as you climb onto horses for a one hour ride up the Virgin River, to the Court Of the Patriarchs. Please do not be concerned if you have not ridden before. Experienced cowboys will show you what to do and lead you on the trail. Note that there is a weight limit of 220 pounds (about 100 kg). If you choose not to go horseback riding you will have the cost of this activity refunded, and you can explore part of Zion on your own.
After riding. we'll take a leisurely drive through the park, stopping frequently to take photographs and enjoy the scenery. The road goes past the Great Arch of Zion, which is a natural photo stop.
Our route will take us up a series of switchbacks and through an incredible tunnel that has been blasted into the rocks. We'll leave the park at the less traveled east exit, which most visitors don't even get to see.
Day 1 - Zion National Park to Bryce Canyon - 75 mi / 120.68 km - About 1 1/2 hours
|We've climbed up to the top of a plateau now, and we'll drop down a little, through the pygmy forests of southern Utah, prior to climbing up again to Bryce. The road to Bryce is a particularly scenic one, through picturesque, rural countryside, first next to the Virgin River, and then alongside the Sevier River.|
Bryce Canyon is situated at altitude, at over 8000 feet (almost 2500 metres), and it can be cold, even though Vegas and Zion are hot. Please check the weather forecast before you leave and bring appropriate clothing.
Day 1 - Bryce Canyon - About 2 1/2 hours
| ||Many who have seen both Bryce Canyon and the Grand Canyon tell us that Bryce is far more spectacular. You will marvel at the weirdly shaped hoodoos, in an amazing array of colorful hues.|
Bryce is not really a canyon, but a large amphitheatre carved out of a variety of rock types. There are three main viewpoints overlooking Bryce, and we will go to all three: Sunset Point, Inspiration Point and Bryce Point.
Day 1 - Bryce Canyon to Page (on the shores of Lake Powell) - 154 mi / 247.79 km - 2 3/4
|It's time to leave Bryce, and travel to Page, on the shores of Lake Powell. On the way, we'll stop for a short time in Kanab, on the Utah/Arizona border, where many western movies have been shot. Time permitting, you'll have an opportunity to purchase southwestern and native American souvenirs. |
From Kanab it is a scenic drive to Page, as you pass alongside the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument.
A short distance from Page we will take a dirt road to a spectacular overlook of Lake Powell.
Horseshoe Bend - About an hour
| ||Time - and energy - permitting, our guide will lead a hike to Horseshoe Bend. The trailhead is a short distance outside Page, and it is a walk to a spectacular overlook of a bend in the Colorado River below, viewed through the canyon walls from thousands of feet above.|
Day 1 - Page
| ||You will spend the night in Page, and are on your own for dinner. Examples of the motels we use in Page can be seen here. An extended continental breakfast will be available tomorrow morning.|
Day 2 - Page to Monument Valley - About an hour
| ||Shortly before 8 a.m. your guide will take you to the small Page airport for a flight to Monument Valley. On the way there you will fly over the beautiful Lake Powell, with its golden canyons and incredibly blue waters. On most days the pilot will detour over Rainbow Bridge before overflying the Monuments and landing right in the heart of Monument Valley.|
Everyone gets a window seat on the plane.
Day 2 - Monument Valley - 1 1/2 to 2 hours
| ||Up next is a 1 1/2 to two hour tour of Monument Valley, conducted by a Navajo guide. Visitors love to see the buttes, mesas and other sandstone formations that are so prevalent in the Monument Valley area. Monument Valley is actually not really a valley at all, but a relatively flat plain surrounded by red cliffs, with the buttes, as well as the remnants of ancient volcanoes, towering from the earth. |
For fans of old western movies, Monument Valley is the epicenter of the west, with many great cowboys and Indians films having been shot in the area. The familiar rock shapes can be seen from many miles away, with the really great scenery to be seen on the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, which straddles the Utah/Arizona border.
Amongst the sites that your tour will take in are Anasazi ruins, petroglyphs, movie locations, 1000 foot monoliths, rug weaving and Indian hogans. The famous monuments are visited as well as many rock windows and arches of unique shapes.
Time permitting you can buy Navajo souvenirs and jewelry.
Day 2 - Monument Valley to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon - About 75 minutes
| ||Climbing into your airplane you will leave the Monuments behind as you fly towards the Grand Canyon. The flight includes a short air tour of the Grand Canyon, before landing at the South Rim airport.|
Day 2 - South Rim of the Grand Canyon - About 2 1/2 hours
| ||The Grand Canyon needs no explanation, and we will take you to some of the best vantage points to enjoy the never ending vistas. These include Mather Point, Yavapai Point, and Bright Angel Lodge where you will have the opportunity to buy yourself a meal.|
Day 2 - Grand Canyon to Las Vegas - 276 mi / 444.08 km - 5 hours
|It's time to return to Las Vegas and end the tour. If we're in a smaller vehicle, it may be possible to go over Hoover Dam on the way back, but mini buses are not permitted over the Dam Wall.|
