Day-by-Day

Day 4: The Grand Canyon

As you leave Palm Springs behind, head toward the Joshua Tree National Park, an interesting and unusual blend of the two distinctly different desert eco-systems of the Mojave and the Colorado. Continue to the Grand Canyon National Park, an awe-inspiring sight at any time of the day, but sunsets are particularly spectacular. Tickets are available to take in the impressive views from the Skywalk viewing platform or you might choose to take a helicopter flight for the ultimate Canyon experience.

Day 5: Lake Powell

Rise early this morning to take in the sunrise over the Grand Canyon, before hitting the road for a drive through Navajo country, this sparsely populated landscape feels otherworldly. Travel through Monument Valley where isolated monoliths of red sandstone tower above the valley floor before arriving at Lake Powell – a huge man-made lake popular for water sports, boat tours and stunning scenery, as the red rock formations contrast against the azure lake.

Day 6: Bryce Canyon

Heading north through Utah and the scenic city of Kanab to Bryce Canyon National Park, where the colourful sandstone has been eroded over time into fantastic forms and intriguing shapes.  Enjoy wondering through natures sculpture park, especially in the glow of the sunset light.
