Spend a night on the South Rim of the Magnificent Grand Canyon. Luxuriate at the Lake Powell Resort for two nights.

Day 3. Scottsdale – Sedona – Grand Canyon

Journey to stunning Sedona. Enjoy time to soak in the atmosphere as you span the colourful vistas while taking time to browse the arts and crafts shops in the marketplace. You will be awed by Oak Creek Canyon, where the rock formations seem to change hue with every turn in the road.

Day 4. Grand Canyon – Lake Powell

This morning you will have ample time to get up-close to nature and explore the Grand Canyon. Behold the breathtaking views of the vast canyon with a drive along East Rim Drive. Theodore Roosevelt, upon visiting the canyon, is quoted as saying, “This is one of the great sights which every American, if he can travel at all, must see.” Later, a short drive brings you to Cameron Trading Post. For nearly a century, the post has been a haven for travellers, traders and explorers who come from all points of the globe to see the wonder of the Grand Canyon and experience the Native American cultures of the Southwest. Continue north through mesa-studded desert scenery before arriving at your home for the next two evenings – a lovely hotel overlooking the stunning blue waters of Lake Powell.

Day 5. Lake Powell – Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park or Canyon Cruise

Begin your day with an invigorating breakfast cruise along lovely Lake Powell. Today the choice is yours. Perhaps you will travel through the territory of the Navajo nation and arrive in Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, a sacred Navajo land featuring colourful sandstone spires that rise hundreds of feet from the valley floor. Enjoy a fascinating tour, narrated by one of the Navajo tribe members. A stop will be made at a Hogan, a traditional Navajo hut. Or, perhaps you’ll choose to take a canyon adventure cruise which passes by Glen Canyon and Antelope Canyon. As you drift along, gaze at majestic sandstone geologic formations. Later today, return to Lake Powell for dinner followed by leisure time.

Day 6. Lake Powell – Bryce Canyon National Park – Zion National Park

Today, travel to Bryce Canyon National Park, truly one of the most spectacular scenic wonders of the world. The formations within the park, called Hoodoos, are the creation of wind and water erosion over eons of time. Iron oxidising within the rock causes the natural orange and red hues that colour these formations. Your final destination for the day is the red and white sandstone cliffs of Zion National Park. In sheer magnitude and colour, Zion is very likely one of the most awe-inspiring national parks in the world.

Day 7. Zion National Park – Las Vegas, Nevada

Climb aboard Zion’s open-air tram to experience spectacular scenery as you wind alongside the Virgin River through the 2,400 foot deep, one-half-mile wide Zion Canyon. Later, leave nature’s beauty behind for the glitz and glamour of the Las Vegas strip. Probably the most famous stretch of road in the world, its four miles of neon-lit resorts with round-the-clock action is like nowhere else on earth. A 2-night stay provides you plenty of time to enjoy the shows, the casinos and all the fun.

Day 8. Las Vegas

Today is yours to do as you please. Lounge by the pool sipping cool drinks, experience an amazing one-of-a-kind show, browse the world-renowned shops or try your luck in the casino. Or, perhaps explore the hotels on the strip with themes that capture your attention as you get swept away by the wonders inside. Take time to visit Mandalay Bay’s Shark Reef aquarium or stop by the Luxor to see the sphinxes and pyramid; New York-New York brings the “Big Apple” to life right on the Vegas strip; see the Eiffel Tower; “ooh” and “ahh” at the Mirage volcano; or take a gondola ride at the Venetian. The Las Vegas strip brings the world to you.
