are offered from Las Vegas. They are six day excursions
which are effectively a combination of
two of our three day Grand Canyon and more tours and our three
day Yellowstone ground tour.
from Las Vegas you will tour through Zion National Park
on the way to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.
At Zion you will have the opportunity of horseback
riding up the Virgin River. We prefer to go to the
North Rim of the Grand Canyon, as opposed to the South,
as it is far less crowded and the views from the top are
far more spectacular. After touring the Canyon we
will travel across the deserted Arizona Strip, before
reaching Page, on the shores of Lake Powell. If
you're not too tired we'll take in a hike to Horseshoe
Bend, a spectacular overlook of the Colorado River from
the canyon rim far above. The night is spent in
day you'll go for a half day float trip on the Colorado
River, before traveling over Navajo Nation land to
Monument Valley. Your tour will be led by a Navajo
guide who will show you the buttes, mesas and rock
shapes that make up the famous monuments. You will
also experience a little Navajo culture. The night
is once again spent in Page.
day you will tour Antelope Canyon, a spectacular slot
canyon, and then proceed along a particularly
picturesque Utah back road to Bryce Canyon. Bryce
is known for is hoodoos, an assortment of weirdly and
wonderfully shaped and colored rock formations.
Salt Lake City is a few hours up the road, and this is
where you will spend the night, at the downtown Crystal
Inn, which is close to Temple Square and the Mormon
The next day you will leave
Salt Lake and the
first major activity on is horseback riding on
the Continental Divide. The night is spent in West
Yellowstone. The roads through Yellowstone make up
a massive figure of eight, and on day five you tour Yellowstone's
entire upper loop. On day six you do most of the
lower loop, Grand Teton National Park, and go river
rafting on the Snake River. All meals are provided
on the Yellowstone portion of the trip.
