HOW IT WORKS

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Watch the sun disappear behind the rocky whorls of the aptly named Delicate Arch at Arches National Park.
  • Let your private driver-guide take the reins, allowing yourself to be chauffeured to and from breathtaking locations on all private luxury tours.
  • From a strategic lookout point, trace the journey of the Colorado River as it wends its way through the iconic Horseshoe Bend area of Glen Canyon National Recreation Area.
  • Cruise through the Lake Powell reservoir, navigating along gorgeous cliff-side channels of Glen Canyon.
  • Stop at the lesser-visited North Rim of the Grand Canyon to marvel at this most impressive of natural wonders, with the option to upgrade to include a private helicopter tour of the park.
  • Get your feet wet (literally) and hike through shallow waters of the Virgin River, in Zion National Park’s “the Narrows” (optional).
  • Stargaze in Bryce Canyon National Park, designated a “Dark Sky Park,” with the luminous Milky Way galaxy overhead.

Sample Itinerary

Welcome to Vegas! On arrival, you’ll be met by your private guide and set off on your adventure through some of the Southwest’s most incredible National Parks. First stop, Zion! Depending on your time of arrival, your guide can recommend the best route to kickstart your adventure. Perhaps you’re up for a hike down the Virgin River in a place called The Narrows (literally, hike in water!), or challenge yourself to hike a narrow ridge line to Angels Landing. Not up for a hike, enjoy a more relaxing afternoon such as a lunch in Orderville or Springdale before touring the visitor center with an introduction to the park.

Recommended Hotel Accommodations

Spend a full day exploring Bryce Canyon with your private guide leading the way; a short drive and at 8,000ft elevation, you’ll find a natural amphitheater decorated with unique sandstone spires (hoodoos) rising up there within. Hike down into the hoodoos for an up-close experience with this captivating landscape. There are a variety of lookout points as well (such as Inspiration Point) that surely won’t disappoint! After returning to your hotel for a relaxing evening, enjoy some stargazing, noting you’re very likely to spot the Milky Way in this designated Dark Sky Park.
