Leave the bright lights of Vegas behind as the wilderness beckons. Under Canvas Zion is just moments away from incredible trails, off-the-beaten-path adventures, and spectacular views of the majestic red rocks that make Zion so famous.
Gaze up at massive sandstone cliffs of cream, pink, and red that soar into a brilliant blue sky. Experience wilderness in a narrow slot canyon. Hike the Narrows or Angel’s Landing. Zion’s unique array of plants and animals will enchant you as you absorb the rich history of the past and enjoy the excitement of present day adventures.
Situated along a high plateau at the top of the Grand Staircase, Bryce is home to the largest concentration of hoodoos found anywhere on Earth. Explore the park en-route to Torrey.
Capitol Reef National Park is a hidden treasure filled with cliffs, canyons, domes and bridges in the heart of red rock country. Designated an International Dark Sky Park, it’s an ideal location to stay in a luxury tepee or wagon.
Continuing on Utah’s ‘Road to Mighty’, travel to Moab, gateway to Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. An outdoor lover’s paradise, Under Canvas Moab blends into its dramatic surroundings of deep canyons and towering plateaus.
Visit Arches to discover a landscape of contrasting colours, land forms and textures unlike any other in the world. The park has over 2,000 natural stone arches, and hundreds of soaring pinnacles, massive fins and giant balanced rocks. This red rock wonderland will amaze you with its formations, refresh you with its trails, and inspire you with its sunsets.
Explore a wilderness of countless canyons and fantastically formed buttes carved by the Colorado River and its tributaries. Rivers divide the park into four districts: Island in the Sky, The Needles, The Maze, and the rivers themselves. Each offers different opportunities for sightseeing and adventure.
One of the most majestic – and most photographed – points on earth, Monument Valley boasts towering sandstone masterpieces framed by scenic clouds. Situated on Navajo Tribal land, visitors to the Park are hosted by Navajo guides. For the ultimate experience, spend the night camping in an authentic Hogan, with entertainment, food and unbeatable scenery. (D)
