Blaze A trail Thru Natural WONDERS OF THE WEST

This tour takes you thru the natural wonders of the west. You will see canyons, monuments and monoliths from Monument Valley to the Grand Canyon, Bryce and Zion National Parks, see glittering Lake Powell, along with scenic drives in Sedona, Monument Valley, along Desert View Drive and Oak Creek Canyon and travel a portion of Route 66.

You’ll enjoy Insider moments like taking walks through national parks with locals who understand the history, nature and formation of some of America’s most famous landmarks. At Zion National Park, a naturalist guides you through the park and reveals its hidden secrets and stories.  At Lake Powell, we meet a local who takes you deep inside the landscape to talk about the ecology and perhaps even see some desert wildlife. While, in the Grand Canyon, examine the multi-coloured rocks from different eras of the canyon’s formation. If you like, perhaps take an optional helicopter or fixed-wing aircraft flightseeing trip to see the canyon from the sky. Explore the magnificent mesas and iconic rock formations. Even more spectacular vistas await as you arrive on the shores of glittering Lake Powell, one of America’s most beautiful lakes.  This Guided tour take you through stunning areas, rock formations, and natural wonders of the world, all without having to use a passport!

Say goodbye to Sin City and depart for Grand Canyon National Park. Along the way, hit the “Mother Road” on historic Route 66, including the famous Kingman and Seligman outposts. Watch the classic motels and restaurants of a simpler time roll by, framed by stunning desert landscapes. Upon arrival at the Grand Canyon, meet with a Local Specialist who walks you through the geologic life of the canyon—you’ll become a rock expert yourself as you examine the multi-colored rocks from different eras of the canyon’s formation. If you like, perhaps take an optional helicopter or fixed-wing aircraft flightseeing trip to see the canyon from the sky. This evening, gather to watch the sunset and the fading light gilding the canyon and casting enchanting shadows.

Meal(s):Full Breakfast; Hotel: National Park Lodges



Rise early to catch the first sunlight washing over the canyon. Then, travel south through the fragrant pine groves of the Kaibab National Forest and down Oak Creek Canyon where you can admire the stunning red cliffs amid the pristine forests of ponderosa pines on your way to the artists’ enclave of Sedona, a lovely town situated in the high desert of Arizona. Enjoy a leisurely dinner at your hotel this evening.

This morning, enjoy some free time, or if adventure is your thing, take part in an optional jeep experience into Red Rock Country. Back on the road, head north and stop at Cameron Trading Post to browse through handicrafts and maybe sample some tasty fry bread. Traverse the badlands of the Painted Desert—the rugged landscape changing hour by hour as the sun illuminates the eroded stone of the desert floor. Continue on to striking Monument Valley where you’ll hop aboard an open-air vehicle to explore the magnificent mesas and iconic rock formations. Even more spectacular vistas await as you arrive on the shores of glittering Lake Powell, one of America’s most beautiful lakes. Enjoy dinner at your hotel among the stunning scenery tonight.

The day is yours. Rise early for an adventurous hike or relax in the sun on the shores of this 186-mile (300-kilometre) long lake, formed by the Glen Canyon Dam. Gather some of your travelling companions for an optional raft experience down one of the prettiest sections of the Colorado River or a scenic cruise on the lake, visiting magnificent Antelope Canyon. If you want to hit the water, go kayaking or fish for striped bass and bluegill in one of the lake’s glittering bays. Tonight, meet with a naturalist, your Local Specialist, for a fascinating slideshow about the ecology and survival strategies of the desert wildlife of the Colorado Plateau.

Meal(s): Full Breakfast.



Continue your journey into Bryce Canyon National Park, home to the world’s largest concentration of hoodoos, those towering limestone spires that rise majestically from the desert floor. From the rim of the amphitheater, gaze down upon thousands of pink, orange and yellow pinnacles, the result of millions of years of erosion. You may even spot one of the park’s bristlecone pines, the world’s longest-living trees.

Join a Local Specialist, and naturalist, from the Zion Canyon Field Institute, for a guided walk and introduction to the flora and fauna of the area. You’ll be amazed by the petrified sandstone formation of Checkerboard Mesa and the otherworldly Zion. The rest of the day is yours to immerse yourself in the surrounding beauty. Marvel at the graceful slot canyons, towering cliffs and awe-inspiring monoliths, all carved out over 200 million years from the orange sandstone. Stretch your legs during a stroll along the Virgin River up to the Temple of Sinawava to peek at the start of the Narrows slot canyon or hike up to the three Emerald Pools. Spot some of the more than 200 species of birds that call the park home. Or join a park ranger to learn more about the park on one of the many daily programs. This evening, share your adventures with your travelling companions at a festive Farewell Dinner.
