Guided hiking in the National Parks of Southwest USA


  • Day 1: Start Las Vegas
    Welcome to the neon city in the Nevada desert, Las Vegas. This brash, iconic city offers travellers the chance to explore the over-the-top casinos, see a show, shop or simply indulge in a spot of people watching. A welcome meeting will be held at approximately 18:00 hrs in the evening with free time afterwards to explore the cityscape at night and see the neon lights in all their glory. Accommodation: OYO Las Vegas Hotel & Casino (or similar)
  • Day 2: To Zion National Park
    After leaving Las Vegas, we drive through desert landscapes before arriving in the State of Utah and our destination for today, Zion National Park. Zion Canyon was named by the early Mormon settlers of Utah who thought of it as their `promised land'. Some of the best hiking in the desert terrain of Southwest USA can be found here, in and around the fertile Virgin River Gorge. With a two night stay we have plenty of time to discover Zion. Upon arrival, your leader will take you on a walk to Emerald Pools as an introduction to Zion National Park. Accommodation: La Quinta Inn & Suites (or similar)
  • Day 3: Walking in Zion National Park
    Today is all about exploring Zion National Park and its vast network of trails. There are many great trails but a really good option to start with is the Watchman Trail. It is a steady uphill climb until you reach the viewpoint which offers stunning views of Watchman Peak. In the afternoon, we recommend a walk beside the Virgin River or if weather conditions permit, you may choose to hike deep into the Zion Narrows, a stunning water channel where you'll witness some outstanding scenery. Staying dry is not an option as you wade through the Virgin River between towering walls. The cool waters and the shadow of the canyon can provide a much-needed respite from the scorching sun. Another hike option is Angels Landing, which due to its popularity cannot be booked by a tour operator and requires individual customers to apply for a permit via a seasonal lottery. We have included more details on how to go about this in the ‘Is this trip for you?’ section. Accommodation: La Quinta Inn & Suites (or similar)
  • Day 4: To Bryce Canyon, afternoon hike
    Driving out of Zion National Park we climb in elevation to almost 8,296ft and traverse a high plateau to Bryce Canyon National Park. Bryce Canyon is a fascinating natural amphitheatre of pink, orange and white sandstone spires, known locally as hoodoos. There are a variety of scenic overlooks and trails that range in difficulty. The Navajo or Peek-a-Boo Loop trails will enable you to hike right in amongst these unique rock formations with your tour leader. Some of you may prefer to remain on the rim and photograph the ever-changing shadows and hues as the sun makes its way across the wide-open sky. The inspiring hoodoos will make a lasting impression and leave you yearning for more. Optional activities:• Western horseback riding at Bryce US$65-$90 Accommodation: Best Western Plus Ruby's Inn (or similar)
  • Day 5 - 7: Arches National Park and Canyonlands
    We make tracks for Arches National Park. Stunning red sandstone arches have been created over millions of years by the whipping winds that brush down the western slope of the Rocky Mountains. The park offers hiking trails through spectacular sandstone landscapes with intriguing names like the Devil's Garden. One of the more widely recognised arches, and by far the most visited, is Delicate Arch, a 65ft., freestanding arch that has become one of Utah's most famous icons (visited on Day 5). On Day 6 you'll walk on the Primitive Trail to Double O Arch, with free time in the afternoon to spend the afternoon ‘off the trail’, experiencing the charms of Moab - the small eclectic town that serves as the gateway to both Arches and Canyonlands. Day 7 is mostly a free day for optional activities, but your leader will take you on a very short scenic walk to view Mesa Arch before an afternoon drive out to Canyonlands National Park. You’ll also experience the iconic view at Dead Horse Point of the Colorado River snaking its way through the water channels. Optional Activities: Mountain biking US$60 Extreme off-road hummer tour US$79 Accommodation: Adventure Inn Moab (or similar)
  • Day 8: To Monument Valley for trekking
    Today you travel south-east to the Navajo Nation's greatest treasure - Monument Valley. A sacred land to those who call it home, the red sandstone monoliths have been the backdrop to countless Western movies. After arriving to the hotel, we sout on a backcountry 4x4 (vans in winter) driving tour, heading deep into the heart of the valley. After stops to photograph both the famous and lesser-known sights in the park, we come to 'the end of the road'. Your local Navajo guide will then lead you even deeper into the park on foot where you'll be walking to explore places that very few non-Native Americans ever to get to see. Accommodation: Kayenta Monument Valley Inn (or similar)
  • Day 9 - 10: Grand Canyon (South Rim)
    On to Grand Canyon National Park; one of those rare places that has yet to be adequately described, painted or photographed in its entirety. This incredible spectacle is difficult to comprehend, even as you stand at the rim or hike down into the canyon. Carved over several millennia, this massive wonder of nature is 277 miles (445 km) long, up to 18 miles (29km) wide and over one mile deep (1.6km). Snaking through the canyon floor is the mighty Colorado River, which runs 1,450 miles (2,330km) through seven US states and two Mexican states. Watch as the sun sets on this incredible place and attempt to comprehend this canyon's staggering proportions and power. There are many rim trail walks that you can enjoy using the parks transport, as well as the park ranger's guided nature walk, or you may just wish to sit in quiet contemplation on the edge of this natural wonder. However, with a full free day we highly recommend lacing up your hiking boots and walking the Bright Angel Trail down to Plateau Point. For a unique bird's eye view, why not opt for a scenic flight over the canyon, which offers perspectives that cannot be seen when visiting on foot. NB: Grand Canyon National Park regulations limit group size and do not allow guided hikes. Your tour leader will provide briefings, directions and maps, but are not permitted by the National Park Service to walk with you on the trails. Optional activities:• Grand Canyon helicopter flight US$289 Accommodation: Yavapai Lodge (or similar)
  • Day 11: To Las Vegas on Route 66; tour ends.
    This morning we begin our journey back to the desert city of Las Vegas. En route we drive along a section of the original Route 66, stopping at the town of Seligman which is filled the brim with pure Americana. This stop makes for some wacky photos but also echoes back to a time when the mother road was the main highway to cross America. This incredible adventure comes to an end as we return to Las Vegas - if you fancy trying your hand at a spot of gambling, you've come to the right place! Nowhere else in the world will you find as many resort hotels, clubs and all-you-can-eat buffets, making Las Vegas the perfect place to celebrate an amazing trip. This tour ends at our gateway hotel at approximately 17:00 hrs. We can book you post-tour accommodation at our gateway hotel if required. If you are planning to fly tonight, please do not book a flight that departs before 21:00 hrs.
