Day 1 : Monday
Las Vegas - Valley of Fire - Zion Park – Kanab
We start our day traveling north to “Valley of Fire” named for the magnificent red sandstone formations created from shifting sands and dunes during the age of the dinosaurs more than 150 million years ago. Our visit is timed to be able to see the appearance of the valley being on “fire” when reflecting the powerful sun’s rays into the valley (weather permitting).
After lunch break we continue to “Zion Park”.
This park got its name from the Mormon’s that settled in the area after claiming that visiting the park is like a religious experience, the majesty of the mountains and silence of the wilderness make you feel like you have been transported to another place.
Tour the area and enjoy a short walking trail along the Virgin river that runs through the park, after the visit we head towards the town of Kanab.
Overnight: La Quinta Inn Kanab.
Day 2 : Tuesday
Kanab - Bryce Canyon - Las Vegas
After breakfast we depart north to “Bryce Canyon” home to the most amazing natural sculptures of the world. Bryce Canyon, which despite its name, is not a canyon but a collection of giant natural amphitheatres. The red, orange, and white colours of the rocks provide spectacular views for park visitors.
Our tour will take us to see amazing rock and sand sculptures shaped to perfection over thousands of years of rain wind and sunshine. Experience the unique changing of the colours during the sunset from one of the vista points in the park (may change it due to changing sunset times) before leaving this amazing area for an evening arrival in Las Vegas.
