Experience the real wild, wild west on this 4-day Intrepid Retreat in Utah. Spend time getting back to nature with hikes in both Zion and Bryce National Parks and take a 4x4 jeep ride through Monument Valley with a Navajo guide to enjoy exceptional perspectives of this otherworldly landscape. You’ll also have the chance to enjoy a homecooked, family style meal. Plus, you’ll be based at a mountain ranch in Zion for the duration of the trip, which means you only have to unpack once!

Why you'll love this trip
  • Go hiking in Zion National Park enjoying views of the massive canyon walls and red sandstone cliffs.
  • Take a Navajo guided tour of Monument Valley, where you’ll have the chance to learn more about their rich culture and history in the area, before sitting down to a traditional homecooked, family-style Navajo lunch.
  • Enjoy a stroll in Bryce National Park along the canyon rim to marvel at the unique sandstone spires (known as hoodoos) that rise dramatically from the natural amphitheatre.
  • Marvel at the unique curves and colours of Peek-a-Boo, a remarkable slot canyon filled with arches and corkscrewing formations (and an awesome spot for photos!).
  • Travel in a private, air-conditioned vehicle each day before heading back to your ranch accommodation each night.

Is this trip right for you?
  • The trip involves a lot of walking through Zion National Park, so be prepared with hiking shoes, a water bottle and day pack.
  • Lunches will be simple picnic style so perhaps bring some of your own snacks if you think you’ll get hungry between meals.
  • We will be travelling to the desert, which means it is often very warm during the day but cold at night, so make sure you pack the appropriate clothing for all weather.

This trip was 10/10. Perfect weather (early October). Age range 30s to 71. We had 7 in the group plus our awesome guide, Chloe. The itinerary is pretty packed especially the 3rd day bur everyone had a great time with lots of options on what to do/ hiking trails based on your interests and physical capabilities. Chloe, our guide, made sure we all understand our options and was extremely knowledgeable of the area as she grew up visiting this region. Loved this trip - kinda short now that I know more of what we can do this area.

The Zion Ranch trip is outstanding! I appreciated staying in one location rather than moving hotels every night and the Resort was wonderful. Out trip leader, Charlie, was well-organized, friendly, and had great stories that made the trip a richer experience. The itinerary was well-thought out and expertly chosen. We went to a gorgeous slot canyon that was under the radar rather than the overcrowded ones. The trip to Monument Valley and Navajo Nation was eye opening and unforgettable. And Bryce Canyon and Zion were breathtaking. This was my first Intrepid trip will not be my last. Thank you Intrepid for hiring local guides, organizing socially conscious trips, and creating a lifetime of memories.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Zion Ranch Trip. The itinerary was great and as described. Our tour leader Charlie was great. Well organised, friendly, informative, very professional and an excellent driver. The Ponderosa Ranch was very comfortable and a great base to return to each evening. The scenery was spectacular and every day we got to experience something truly amazing. This is my first Intrepid tour and hopefully many more to come.

This trip is a must do! The itinerary is spectacular and each stop is more beautiful than the last. It packs a lot in but the pace is great and the beauty is absolutely worth it. It was nice to be based out of one spot the whole time with easy day trips to the various parks.

Zion Ranch Stay may seem like a short trip, but we certainly had so many rich and rewarding experiences in those four days. We certainly made the most of our time and saw some of the most stunning sights in the Southwest: Zion, Bryce Canyon, Monument Valley, Horseshoe Bend and Peakaboo Slot Canyon. I would be hard-pressed to pick a favorite. Highly recommended. This is my second trip with Intrepid and I can't wait for my third. Best way to travel.
