Fly to Las Vegas via connecting cities. On arrival in Las Vegas, our tour guide will meet you at the airport transfer you to your hotel. The rest of the day is free at leisure.
This morning, visit Lake Powell, one of the largest man-made lakes in North America, with a shoreline stretching almost 3,000km. Desolate, vast, serene, magnificent; these are the changing faces of the lake as the morning sun rises over the water and creeps into the yawning gorges. Afterwards, go to Antelope Canyon to admire the intricate curves and ripples of the canyon walls carved out by many millennia of floodwaters. Next we’ll head to Horseshoe Bend to watch the Colorado River do a complete 180 around the red canyon walls. We’ll make one last stop at Glen Canyon Dam, before transfer to Kanab to rest for the evening.
In the morning, head to Zion National Park, where you can feast your eyes on the rich tapestry of coloured sandstone. The afternoon takes us to Bryce Canyon National Park, where an elevation of over 2,400 meters affords vast panoramas of bizarrely-shaped rocks formed through millions of years of erosion. Then, transfer to your hotel in Salt Lake City.
Today, enjoy a tour of Salt Lake City before we drive interstate from Utah, to Big Sky in Montana. Enjoy the scenery along the way and the evening at leisure, and rest up for your big day tomorrow at Yellowstone National Park!
Today, visit Yellowstone National Park, the first and oldest national park in the United States. Highlights include: Yellowstone Canyon, Yellowstone Falls, Mud Volcano, and Mammoth Hot Springs. You may be lucky enough to see various wildlife that inhabit the park, such as bison, elk, moose, and bears.
Today we continue on to nearby Grand Teton National Park. Twelve of the peaks in Grand Teton reach above 3,660 meters feet and support a dozen mountain glaciers, and the tallest peak rises to almost 4,300 meters. The region was settled by the ancestors of Native American Shoshone people, over 11,000 years ago. In the afternoon, transfer to the state of Wyoming and visit the western town of Jackson, in Jackson Hole Valley. Arches made of elk antlers decorate the central plaza in this town, and there are plenty of interesting shops and attractive restaurants to explore. We then return to Salt Lake City.
Today, transfer to Salt Lake City Airport to board your return flight home.
