You'll be awestruck by the towering cliffs and massive canyon walls of Zion Canyon. Riding the park's shuttle, marvel at how the Virgin River cut through the sandstone to create one of Mother Nature's most stupendous wonders. Enjoy hiking? There's an easy trek to the Emerald Pools, where splendid views and waterfalls will make the family happier than a crowd of cowpokes at chow time. Leaving Zion, drive along the Mount Carmel Highway and watch out for more spectacular formations like the Great Arch of Zion and the distinctive Checkerboard Mesa. Arrive at magical Bryce Canyon for the last two nights of your Western adventure.
Exploring Bryce Canyon is like entering a weird and eerie world, with sandstone spires called hoodoos creating a landscape that is a playground for the imagination. Explore the rim of a great amphitheatre stopping at various lookouts to snap pictures of fairytale castles, cathedrals, meandering trails and secret hideaways, all carved out of stone by Mother Nature. This afternoon you're free to blaze your own trail. Later, put on your cowboy boots and Stetsons for a Western Farewell Dinner filled with good food and good fun.
Travelling down through the scenic Virgin River Gorge, make your way into southern Nevada to fabulous Las Vegas, where your adventures in the Old West come to an end. A transfer takes you to Las Vegas International Airport. This is the end of your tour but it doesn't have to be the end of your adventure. You may decide to extend your stay and spend a few days in Las Vegas or perhaps fly over to the Hawaiian Islands for some relaxation before heading back to the UK.
