Itinerary

Depart Las Vegas & Journey to Zion National Park

Meet at the airport at 2pm and depart, heading north out of Las Vegas and the Mojave Desert. Travel through millions of years of geologic history while rising up through the Colorado Plateau, with the spires of Zion in the distance. End the first day at the your camp, hidden within the towering walls of Zion Canyon. Our experienced guide will teach us how to set up our tents and prepare a delicious dinner to enjoy. Watch as the setting sun highlights the red canyon walls in our first night in Zion.

Hike Angel’s Landing and Explore The Park

Today begins with the anticipated summit of Angel's Landing. When Reverend Frederick Fisher first visited Zion Canyon in 1916, he was awestruck by the monolith's soaring elegance and decided that its heights could be visited by angels alone. A winding route tops out 1,200 feet above the valley, with incredible views up and down the canyon. After the 5-mile hike, spend an afternoon exploring the park. Options include a van drive through the landmarks of the eastern park, a stroll through the town of Springdale, or visiting Zion's Human History Museum.

Hike Emerald Pools and The Narrows

After a delicious breakfast at your campsite, depart for a 3-mile Emerald Pools hike. Discover a hidden "micro-climate" surrounding three serene ponds, ending in a shady amphitheater topped by trickling waterfalls. After a shady picnic lunch under an enormous cottonwood tree at the lodge, continue the exploration of Zion's waterways in the Virgin River Narrows. Hike 5 miles out-and-back through the river itself, while around you the walls rise thousands of feet above.

Tackle the Watchman Trail & Transfer to Las Vegas

On the final morning in the park, celebrate by hiking the shoulders of the Watchman spire to a stunning lookout over Zion Canyon. The rising sun splashes the walls in crimson red as you take in the sights and sounds of the valley. Wave farewell to the national park on the way to Springdale for a tasty lunch. Relax on the patio of Oscar's Café and recount your adventures in Zion before the journey back to the bright lights of Las Vegas.
