Day 2 - Zion National Park
Your journey begins in the morning at your independently booked accommodations on the Las Vegas Strip, where you'll be met by your guide and embark on the journey to Zion National Park. Here, you'll explore sites like the Great White Throne, Angel's Landing, the Court of the Patriarchs, and the Narrows. (B/L/D)

Day 3 - Grand Canyon - North Rim; Page, AZ
Your morning starts with breakfast and a drive up the Zion switchbacks and through the east entrance toward Kanab, Utah, marveling at fantastic rock formations along the way to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Visit Cape Royal, Point Imperial, and the visitor center for some incredible views of this natural wonder. Continue your journey to Page, Arizona, and cross the Navajo Bridge spanning the Colorado River, getting a glimpse of the Vermilion Cliffs, so named for their brilliantly crimson striations of sedimentary rock. (B/L)

Day 4 - Colorado float trip; Antelope Canyon
Another dramatic drive down an incline tunnel brings you to the base of Glen Canyon Dam for a 14-mile float trip down the Colorado River, surrounded by deep sandstone canyons, plus a stop to view some fascinating petroglyphs.

(B)

Day 5 - Monument Valley; Four Corners National Monument
Today, you will head to Kayenta, Arizona, for a brief stop before entering Monument Valley in an open-air truck. Admire the gigantic formations up close or towering along the horizon; you'll also visit filming spots for classic Western flicks and lesser-frequented outcroppings in the backcountry. Returning to Gouldings Lodge, you'll enjoy scenic, Navajo-inspired fine dining before continuing to 4-Corners National Monument where you will stop to shop and snap a shot at the famous Four Corners spot where Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and Utah meet. (B/L/D)

Day 6 - Mesa Verde National Park
Start your day with breakfast at the Metate Room and enjoy the view here at Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado. Here, you'll tour the dramatic ruins of ancient Pueblo cliff houses, built into shallow caves and under rock overhangs. Then, stop at viewpoints and a museum along the mesa top before heading through the San Juan Mountains for Durango, Colorado. This frontier town offers plenty of restaurants and shopping-just the place to enjoy your free evening. (B/L)

Day 7 - Durango and Silverton Railroad
Score a true frontier experience with a steam engine train ride on the Durango and Silverton Railroad, an impressive track built in 1881 that snakes along the canyons of the Animas River Valley. It'll be lunchtime when you arrive in Silverton, and the Shady Lady, Bent Elbow, Grumpy’s, and Natalie's--all former bordello and current restaurants--will be happy to accommodate you. Then, trek the twisting turns of the Million Dollar Highway, stopping in Ouray for some shopping before the final leg to Moab. (If traveling from March 1 to May 1, the train ride will be only up to Cascade Canyon. (B)

Day 8 - Arches National Park
Spend the day exploring Arches National Park and its 2,000 natural sandstone arches, up to 50 of which you'll experience firsthand as you hike to the Delicate Arch, Landscape Arch, Devil's Garden, and Courthouse Towers. Returning to the hotel, you'll have the afternoon free before an early dinner at a local restaurant, giving you plenty of time to watch the sun set over the endless Canyonlands National Park from Grandview Point or similar. (B/L/D)

Day 9 - Canyonlands National Park
Today, you're treated to another scenic drive into Canyonlands National Park to see and experience the majestic Mesa Arch in the morning. This is the best time to photograph this formation. You will then enjoy the San Rafael Swell on the way to Capitol Reef National Park, where you'll hike up to Hickman Bridge, enjoy the Grand Wash, and look for Geodes and other activities within this little visited park. Dinner and an enjoyable evening will be experienced at one of the local hotels in this area. (B/L)

Day 10 - Bryce Canyon National Park
Today you will journey down Highway 12, known as the All-American Road for its iconic vistas, and also the deep canyons that have been carved through the landscape before arriving at Bryce Canyon National Park, a Utah treasure filled with unearthly archways and rose-colored hoodoos. You'll spend the evening hiking the stunning canyon, relaxing, and dining in rustic elegance at The Lodge at Bryce Canyon Restaurant. (B/L)

Day 11 - Bryce Canyon; Zion National Park
Your last day in the Southwest's fantastic landscape starts with a stellar sendoff of early morning sun lighting up pink cliffs during an unforgettable sunrise in Bryce Canyon. After hiking and exploring more of the canyon, you'll head back to Las Vegas, stopping for a few final views of Zion National Park from the Kolob Fingers and lunch at a local joint in Cedar City, Utah.
