Day Tour Itineraries
Zion National Park: We pick up at your hotel and travel to Zion National Park. Once we arrive we make our way to the back of the park and begin with a hike out the River Walk trail and make our way to the beginning of the famous Zion Narrows trail. Along the way we walk through beautiful trees and plant life observing the beauty around you. Your guide will talk about the geology that formed the park some of the early inhabitants and history of the national park system. As we make our way to the front and upper park other possible visits include, weeping rock, emerald pools, canyon overlook and checkerboard Mesa.
A trip through the Zion Mt Carmel Tunnel is a must. This tunnel allows us access to the upper plateau and petrified dunes of Zion National Park.
We return that evening around 5 PM.
Bryce Canyon National Park: We pick your group up at the hotel of your choice and make our way to Bryce Canyon National Park. Depending on departure location we may take you over scenic highway 14 which travels over the beautiful pine mountains. Along the way you will see Zion from a distance as well as a relatively recent volcanic flow layer down a short 800 years ago.
We then continue on to Bryce Canyon. As we enter the park we make our way to some of the most beautiful overlooks that can include Natural Bridge, Bryce Point, Far View Point, Sunset point, Inspiration Point and others.
Based on guests ability and desire for a hike into the canyon is always a fun option. We descend 600 ft in among the majestic rock spires of Bryce. After we make our way back out we begin our journey back to the hotel.
Arrival around 5 PM
North Rim of the Grand Canyon: We depart from St George around 8:00 AM and travel East. It takes about 2.5 hours to get out there. As we travel up the Kaparowitz Plateau we have a good chance of seeing the Bison herd that roams this portion of the Grand Canyon. This is one of the purest herds of Bison around as it has not been added to by non native bison.
Once we arrive we will make a trip out to Cape Royal or Point Imperial Overlook for a spectacular view of the Canyon. From there we will make our way down to the beautiful North Rim Lodge. A visit to the lodge and then if desired a short walk out to Bright angel Point will finish our visit of the Canyon.
We will return home arriving early evening around 5 PM
