Explore the most famous canyons of the American West that features three national parks. Day one arrive in Scottsdale, Arizona. Tonight join your fellow travelers for a welcome dinner with real cowboy flair. Day two learn about the Native American heritage during a chat with a local tribe member who describes the tribes, their history and traditions. Next, Sedona awaits. Enjoy the arts and crafts shops of the marketplace. Admire Oak Creek Canyon, where the rock formations seem to change hue with every turn in the road. Later, travel through the Kaibab National Forest before reaching the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Day three begin the morning enjoying the majestic views of the canyon. Later today, travel along the East Rim Drive. A short ride brings you to Cameron Trading Post. For nearly a century, the post has acted as a haven for travelers, traders and explorers. Continue north before arriving at Lake Powell, your home for two nights. Day four begin your day with a breakfast cruise along Lake Powell. Then, it’s your choice! Travel through the territory of the Navajo nation and arrive in Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, a sacred Navajo land featuring iconic sandstone spires; enjoy a tour, narrated by a Navajo tribe member and a stop at a Hogan, a traditional Navajo hut. Or, you may take a canyon adventure cruise through the wondrous geologic formations of the Navajo and Antelope canyons. Day five travel to spectacular Bryce Canyon National Park, famous for its Hoodoos. These rock formations, created over thousands of years by wind and water, carry natural orange and red hues, the product of iron oxidizing within the rock. Zion National Park is your next destination. In sheer magnitude and color, few places on earth match the beauty of Zion’s red and white sandstone cliffs. Day six climb aboard Zion’s open-air tram and wind your way alongside the Virgin River and through the 2,400 foot deep, one-half-mile wide Zion Canyon. Later today, arrive in Las Vegas for the final two nights. This four-mile stretch of road features neon-lit resorts and round-the-clock action. Day seven is at leisure. Take in a show, browse the world-renowned shops or visit any of the beautiful hotels. Tonight, toast the end of a wonderful trip at your farewell dinner. Day eight the tour ends and you fly home.
