Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Depart Salt Lake City 5PM. We start this fantastic trip by picking up you and your fellow Adventurers in Salt Lake City. We'll prep you for your adventure and then enjoy a comfortable journey to our first national park.

Day 2: Bryce Canyon National Park. Almost out of a fairy tale, it's nothing like you've ever seen. Spend the day among the “HooDoos”, by hiking the Navajo Loop and Queen’s Garden Trails, or stare at the maze of ancient sandstone spires from the rim of the canyon.

Day 3: Zion National Park. The towering red sandstone walls of Zion are magnificent! Hike the world famous Narrows, a river walk through the canyon, the Emerald Pools past waterfalls, or hike the magnificent Angel’s Landing Trail. Later, enjoy a short drive to Coral Pink Sand Dunes for a cookout and a sunset stroll among the dunes.

Day 4: Grand Canyon National Park. Wake to the sunrise at the North Rim, then hike or take an optional mule ride down into this 'erosion gone wild'! Or lazily enjoy breathtaking views while strolling along the rim of this vast canyon.

Day 5: Monument Valley. Wake to yet another incredible sunrise! This time, among the famous mesas and buttes of Monument Valley. Take a Navajo guided jeep tour ($20) to see the monuments up close. Have lunch at a Navajo trading post and continue on to Moab, where we will take a dip in a secret swim hole! Later, we’ll stroll into town for dinner at the one and only, Eddie McStiff’s!

Day 6: Arches National Park. Spend the day hiking among giant natural sandstone arches sculpted by wind and time in the Devil’s Garden. There is no other place like this in the world! Later we’ll cool off in a swim hole or pool, toast some marshmallows around the campfire, or sample the brews of Moab!

Day 7: Free Day in Moab, Utah. Canoe the Colorado, mountain bike, horseback ride, rent a jeep, try your hand at canyoneering, or relax and shop in Moab for the day. ($20-$80). We’ll assist you in setting up your day’s adventure by recommending reliable companies. In the evening take a sunset tour into Moab’s beautiful outback on the unique UniMog.

Day 9: Yellowstone National Park. Begin the day by breathing some fresh mountain air in the USA’s first national park! Hike past Fountain Paint Pots, Morning Glory Geyser, and of course the most famous geyser, Old Faithful. Watch Old Faithful erupt boiling water and steam 30 meters into Wyoming’s blue sky. Later, swim in a hot spring fed river, and warm your toes around a campfire.

Day 10: Yellowstone National Park. Explore the “Grand Canyon of Yellowstone” with its 300 ft waterfalls, raging Yellowstone River, and herds of bison. Later, we’ll peek inside the bubbling Dragon’s Cauldron and end the day with a midnight soak in a secret hot spring.

Day 11: Grand Teton National Park. This beautiful park is known for sharp, snow capped peaks and excellent hiking trails. We’ll visit the Colter Bay area first, and let you loose to hike past serene Jackson, Heron and Swan Lakes. It's likely we'll spot some deer, elk, or moose!

Day 12: Grand Teton National Park…We’ll take a short boat ride across Jenny Lake at the base of Grand Teton Mountain, hike past Hidden Falls, Inspiration Point, and then follow Cascade Creek as it winds through Cascade Canyon. This canyon is filled with wildlife, flowers, and beautiful waterfalls.
