Unforgettable Scenery That Will Leave You Speechless
Depart Las Vegas for Bryce Canyon
Bryce Canyon is known for its otherworldly terrain, including the iconic “Hoodoos”. The sandstone spires have been formed by countless years of erosion and wind, resulting in the natural wonders we see today. Stay overnight in Bryce Canyon or nearby hotel.
Depart Bryce for Zion
The National Park got its name in the 1800’s from Mormon Settlers, who believed it was “nature’s sanctuary”. Henceforth, Zion has been a destination for those seeking to immerse themselves in nature and get away from the everyday hustle and bustle. With plenty of opportunities to hike, swim, or just relax and soak it all in, Zion will leave you breathless. Stay overnight in Zion National Park or nearby hotel.
Depart Zion for Page
Spend your morning in Zion, before hitting’ the road and making our way to Page, AZ. In Page, there is plenty of opportunities to explore! With off roading adventures, boating, kayaking, or just relaxing at the hotel; you would be hard pressed to find a place with more picturesque views. Stay overnight at Lake Powell Resort.
As we continue to explore Page, we find ourselves in some of the most sacred grounds to the Navajo, Lower Antelope Canyon. Here we embark on a tour, with our Navajo guide, of the world’s most famous slot canyon. Taking pictures here is almost too easy, as there aren’t many bad angles and the light filters in beautifully. Following our walk-through history, we will head to Horseshoe Bend. Known for its striking presence, Horseshoe Bend stands close to 1000 ft above the Colorado River, cutting a channel in the rock in the shape of a horseshoe. Stay overnight in Page.
Page to Monument Valley
Now we find it ourselves among some of the most famous western scenery in the world. Known from many western movies of yonder year, Monument Valley is a place no one should live without visiting. Its mighty buttes standing in the emptiness of the desert, truly set the stage for a wonderful day of exploring. Our local Navajo guides take us on a cultural journey of the surroundings, explaining its significance to their people, and how it came to be in the first place. Stay overnight in Monument Valley.
Monument Valley to Grand Canyon
Wake up to the serene sunrise in Monument Valley. After greeting the day, we continue forward to the Grand Canyon. One of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World; explore Arizona’s pride and joy. No picture or video can ever truly prepare you for the majesty of the Grand Canyon and we are sure you’ll agree. Our guide takes you to all the scenic locations and gives you an in-depth experience (pun intended) you won’t get anywhere else. Conclude the day with a beautiful sunset and a cozy overnight stay at the Grand Canyon Village.
Grand Canyon to Sedona
Rise and Shine to an awe-inspiring sight, the sunrise at the Grand Canyon. Soak it all in over breakfast before we continue our journey south. Along the way we take a fun pit stop in Williams, to see one of the few remaining/thriving Route 66 towns and continue through Flagstaff. A short drive from Flagstaff is beautiful Sedona. As Arizona’s “most mystical” city, Sedona’s laid-back vibes and beautiful surroundings will enchant anyone. With countless art galleries, shops, and restaurants, Sedona is a place you may want to explore for more than one day! Stay overnight in Sedona.
Sedona to Phoenix
As we make our way to Phoenix, the landscape starts giving way to the mighty Saguaro, a species which only grows in the Sonoran Desert. These cacti can reach excess of 20+ ft tall and take 60 years just to grow one arm. Winding our way down to the Valley of the Sun is a perfect time for us to reflect on our adventure. There are so many amazing sights to see in the American West, and we hope that DETOURS helped you capture that sense of wonder once again.
