Why you'll love this trip
  • Visit Zion National Park and hike the Angel’s Landing trail (up to Scout’s Lookout), a walk to remember, with its dramatic switchbacks, drop-offs and incredible views.
  • Bryce Canyon is known for crimson-coloured hoodoos which are spire-shaped rock formations. Hike the Navajo Loop to the famous Thor’s Hammer hoodoo.
  • Enjoy a backcountry hike with a team of First Nations guides and learn about native plants, animals, geology, archaeology and most importantly, about indigenous past and present.
  • Sunsets are always beautiful, but nothing can beat the one in Moab – take your time and enjoy the unforgettable sunset scenes at Dead Horse Point.
  • Join a Navajo guide on a jeep tour through Monument Valley and learn about this incredible place from an indigenous perspective.
  • Take the perfect photo at Horseshoe Bend, a horseshoe-shaped incised meander along the Colorado River, which is one of the most photographed places in Utah.

Is this trip right for you?
  • This is a walking trip so a good level of fitness will help you to fully enjoy it.
  • Walking in these national parks can be hot during summer, therefore some of the walks will take place very early in the morning. Regardless, sun protection is a must, along with at least two litres of water per person and comfortable clothing suited for hiking in hot conditions.
  • Your adventure wraps up at 5pm and overnight accommodation is not included on the final day, so please plan your journey home accordingly.

What a great way to get out into the countryside and see all the arches, hoodoos, mesas and canyons of Utah (and more). The accomodation was clean and comfortable, the guide was considerate and flexible. I would highly recommend.
