based on double occupancy for 26 September 2021 departure
If you haven’t stood before fairy chimneys or squatting goblins, then you haven’t been on a holiday that truly rocks. Leading you to the nation’s most fascinating chasms, hoodoos, and other rock formations, this canyonlands holiday is as multilayered as the ancient tiers of stone that formed them. Starting under the neon lights of Las Vegas, you’ll make your way to the flame-coloured walls of six national parks throughout Arizona and Utah, including Grand Canyon, Arches, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, Bryce Canyon, and Zion National Parks. Rock on with a Lake Powell boat cruise through stunning Glen Canyon and a 4-wheel drive ride through the Navajo Nation’s majestic Monument Valley. Backcountry barbecues, wine tastings, and rustic, resort lodges within a stone’s throw of the nation’s most spellbinding views only deepen your canyonlands experience.
