Your Itinerary

Day 1 - Welcome to Denver

Welcome to the Mile High City. Nestled between the High Plains and the majestic Rockies, Denver entices visitors and locals alike with sunny blue skies and snowcapped peaks. After settling in at your hotel, head out on your own to take in some of Denver’s attractions. This evening, gather at the hotel with your Travel Director and fellow travellers for a welcome reception.

Hotel: Hyatt Regency Downtown
Meals: Dinner

Day 2 - Moab

Descend into the foothills of the Rockies and cross the Continental Divide en route to the alluring alpine village of Vail. The launch-pad to powder days enjoyed within a world of startling white, Vail’s enchanting old-world feel will linger in your mind as you journey to Moab, whose rugged beauty was immortalised on the big screen by the legendary John Ford in the 1940s. Admire the blazing rocky red cliffs as the sun sets over the desert, or explore this gateway to a myriad of adventures – tonight is yours to enjoy on your terms.

Hotel: BW Plus Canyonlands Inn
Meals: Breakfast

Day 3 - Canyonlands & Arches National Park

Tread lightly through the captivating landscapes of Utah’s Canyonlands and Arches as you explore Mother Nature’s profound mark on the surrounding geology. Deep canyons, towering spires and mesas give way to thousands of fiery sandstone arches during today’s encounter with two soul-stirring national parks. See iconic Delicate Arch and if you like, take a short hike to the view point for an up close look. Reconnect with nature and admire how the land has adapted to the ravages of wind, water and time. Then, enjoy the rest of the day at leisure.

Hotel: BW Plus Canyonlands Inn
Meals: Breakfast

Day 4 - Monument Valley

This morning, you’ll arrive at the UNESCO-listed Mesa Verde National Park to enjoy a rare opportunity to delve into the history and culture of the once-flourishing community of the Ancestral Pueblo people. Explore their beautifully preserved dwellings hewn from the sandstone cliff centuries ago and look down at the massive Cliff Palace, the largest cliff dwelling in the world. This evening, join a generous Navajo host for a traditional cookout dinner against the surreal backdrop of Monument Valley.

Hotel: Goulding’s Lodge
Meals: Breakfast and dinner

Day 5 - Grand Canyon

The arresting beauty of Monument Valley is yours to explore this morning as you join a local specialist for a drive in an open-air vehicle past the valley’s towering sandstone buttes and mesas that rise up from the barren landscape. Continue through the ancestral home of the Navajo, arriving at Cameron Trading Post for a quick shopping stop and perhaps a taste of traditional fry bread. Driving along the scenic Desert View Drive, you’ll skirt the South Rim of the Grand Canyon and gaze into its mesmerising multi-coloured depths before meeting another local, to gain insight into the area’s geologic life. This evening, join your fellow travellers for a final farewell dinner to reminisce over the epic landscapes encountered along the way.

Hotel: National Park Lodges, Grand Canyon
Meals: Breakfast and dinner

Day 6 - Las Vegas

Rise early this morning to catch the first rays of light as they illuminate the canyon. You might want to consider an optional helicopter or fixed-wing aircraft flightseeing trip this morning to view this feat of nature from the sky. Alternatively you could enjoy a more leisurely morning before you journey to Sin City for your final night. Desolation gives way to desert oases as you cruise back in time past motels, diners and gas stations towards the dazzling lights of Las Vegas.

Hotel: Harrah’s Las Vegas
Meals: Breakfast

Day 7 - Farewell from Las Vegas

Today your exhilarating adventure through the canyonlands will unfortunately come to an end. Grab some breakfast as you prepare to say farewell to your friends. A transfer is included to get you to the airport today.
