DAY 3, Tuesday - Zion National Park
Today, discover the wonderland of Zion National Park, where red desert rocks splashed with vivid colors mingle with rolling rivers and lush green canyons. Its colorful sandstone canyons and dramatic peaks and cliffs are contrasted by desert oases with abundant pools and cascading waterfalls. Look to the sky -- Zion is home to golden eagles, falcons and the endangered California condor. Highlights also include the famous trio of peaks known as the Three Patriarchs. (B,L)

DAY 4, Wednesday - Bryce Canyon National Park
Morning drive to Bryce Canyon, a wondrous land of pines, pinnacles and oddly sculpted formations known as hoodoos, resembling the towers of fairy-tale castles, created by the wind and water erosion over eons of time. Magnificent spires tinted with many colors of pink orange and red put on a captivating show as the light changes during the day. The sights are truly a delight for photographers. After a quick lunch, continue to your hotel. This evening, have dinner at the hotel. (B,L,D)

DAY 5, Thursday - Full Day in Page
Spend a full day at leisure in Page. Consider joining the thrilling optional excursion to Monument Valley, including lunch.

Return to your hotel.

Optional: Full Day Excursion to Monument Valley with lunch. (B)

DAY 6, Friday - Grand Canyon
A memorable day awaits to explore the South Rim of the Grand Canyon with its unrivaled awe-inspiring views and breathtaking beauty. As you approach the canyon, stop at the Desert Viewpoint to see the exceptional views. The Grand Canyon is more than a great chasm carved over millennia through the rocks of the Colorado Plateau -- it is truly a momentous and unforgettable experience. Almost 280 miles long, the Grand Canyon varies in width from one to eighteen miles, with the Colorado River winding below. The rest of the evening is yours to relax. (B)

Your afternoon drive takes you through winding Oak Creek Canyon on your way towards the Grand Canyon National Park, carved over millions of years by the Colorado River, considered one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Stop to visit Montezuma Castle, site of the 12th and 13th-century Native American cliff dwellings.
