Day 1 | Arrive in Las Vegas

Fly into Las Vegas’ McCarren International Airport and meet your naturalist guide for this adventure through Utah’s stunning desert lands. It’s a 2.5-hour drive from here to Zion Under Canvas.

[/box]Day 2 | Zion National Park

Image of Virgin River Zion National ParkOn your first day in Zion, you’ll avoid lines and traffic, and hop on and off the shuttle along Zion Canyon Scenic Drive. Your private guide will lead you on short hikes to explore highlights such as Weeping Rock, The Grotto, Emerald Pools Trail, and Angel’s Landing.

Life in Zion emanates from the Virgin River. Trees spring up along its banks, only to meet their match with the tall, layered cliffs that enclose the river valley into an imposing canyon. Throughout the excursion, you’ll discover how the river’s swift current has sliced through sandstone to redefine the desert landscapes.


Day 3 | Zion – Mountain Biking & Hiking Angel’s Landing

Image of Zion National Park, UtahStart your morning with a half-day mountain biking tour. Tackle an endless maze of dirt and double track at your chosen distance and pace. This quiet corner of Utah offers immense views of Gooseberry Mesa, the Pine Valley Mountains, and Zion National Park.

In the late afternoon, you’ll hike to the top of Angel’s Landing to watch the sunset over Zion Valley. As the disappearing sun casts colors across the rock faces, take a moment to meditate on the beauty of the region. Once the haze of dusk sets in, you’ll head back down with a headlamp and return to camp.

Watch the landscape change from pine forests to bone-dry desert as you travel roughly five hours through the Fish Lake National Forest to Moab. If you’d like, your guide can lead you on a side trip to the Little Wild Horse Slot Canyon or Goblin Valley State Park! After you’re settled at Moab Under Canvas, spend the evening browsing the art galleries and outdoor stores of downtown Moab.

Day 5 | Moab – Arches National Park

Image of Stone Arch in Arches National Park, UtahRise with the sun this morning to experience the amazing sandstone formations of Arches National Park before it gets too hot. You’ll learn how unique geological conditions produced more than 2,000 precarious stone arches in the park. Then in the peak heat of the afternoon, cool down with a swim at Ken’s Lake Recreation Area or a drive along the La Sal Mountain Loop.

Wind down the evening with a hearty meal and craft beer from Moab Brewing.

[/box]Day 6 | Moab – Canyoneering Little Sinbad Canyon and Canyonlands National Park

Repelling Near UtahRope up and get ready for a half-day canyoneering excursion in Little Sinbad Canyon. This remote obstacle course requires stemming through narrows, negotiating rock obstacles, using technical gear for assisted down-climbs, and swimming through shady corridors of rock. After a series of progressing challenges, you’ll squeeze through the tightest section of Sinbad to get above a giant swimming pool! You’ll drop into the pool on a final rappel and swim to the banks of a lush, hidden oasis for a well-deserved rest.

End the day in Canyonlands National Park with a pleasant drive to the overlooks of this massive, river-carved gorge.

Day 7 | Moab – Arches National Park and Devil’s Garden Trail

Image of Devils Garden Arches National ParkReturn to Arches National Park for a guided hike along the 7.8-mile Devil’s Garden Loop Trail. The moderate trail weaves past seven of the park’s best arches. Spend the rest of your day at your leisure, reflecting in the desert beauty or heading back to downtown Moab to celebrate your last night in Utah.

[/box]Day 8 | Depart from Grand Junction or Salt Lake City

Your guide will drive you to Grand Junction Airport or Salt Lake City Airport for your afternoon flight home.
