Bryce Canyon and Zion, UT

The trip to Bryce and Zion National Parks includes our Grand Canyon Tour, plus an amazing two-day visit to two of southern Utah’s treasures—Bryce and Zion canyons. At Bryce erosion has shaped Claron limestone, sandstone, and mudstone into thousands of colorful spires, fins, and pinnacles. Collectively called "hoodoos," these whimsical formations stand in horseshoe-shaped amphitheaters along the eastern edge of the Paunsaugunt Plateau, enticing visitors to take a closer look. Your group can hike the Queen’s Garden or Navajo loops or simply gaze deep into Bryce’s wonders from the park’s many viewpoints. Zion National Park features 229 square miles of dramatic landscape from deep, sculptured canyons to soaring cliffs. Located at the junction of the Colorado Plateau, the Great Basin and the Mojave Desert, Zion has a unique geography that contains a variety of animals and plants including majestic bighorn rams and beautiful claret-cup cacti. Your group can hike to the Emerald Pools, a series of stunning waterfalls, or even explore the unique Zion Narrows where the Virgin River forms your trail surrounded by canyon walls 2,000 feet high.
