 Days 2-3 Las Vegas - Valley of Fire State Park - Zion National Park

From the bright lights and the all-you-can-eat-buffets of Las Vegas, it's time to start your adventure with a stop at the Valley of Fire State Park, aptly named for the way its red sandstone formations glisten in the sun. Next, you'll continue to Zion National Park to take in the jaw-dropping natural surroundings. Those with a head for heights can hike to the famed Angels Landing for amazing 360-degree views of this magnificent natural valley.

The cool water and shadows of the canyon provide a pleasant respite from hot weather.

 Day 4 Bryce Canyon National Park

Your kids will be left struggling to describe this fantastical place, where erosion has carved thousands of spires, fins, arches and mazes into a weird and wonderful landscape, collectively known as hoodoos. Native Americans believe these bizarre shapes to be 'Legend People' who were turned to stone for their sins. There are a variety of scenic overlooks and trails that range from easy to moderate in difficulty. The Navajo Trail will enable you to hike right in amongst these unique rock formations. Some of you may prefer to hike on the Queen's Garden Trail or remain on the rim and photograph the ever-changing shadows and hues as the sun makes its way across the wide-open sky.'
Meals: Breakfast, lunch and dinner included


 Day 5 Lake Powell

Located on the border of Utah and Arizona and created by the construction of the Glen Canyon Dam, Lake Powell has a shoreline that stretches farther than the western coast of the USA! Many say that Glen Canyon was even more spectacular than the Grand Canyon before the 500ft tall dam was built. Now the lake is a haven for water sports and is a fantastic place to relax amongst the many sandstone coves. Hit the water with a kayaking trip, and make sure you jump in and cool off in the clear water of the lake, before spending yet another incredible evening camped out under the desert stars.
Meals: Breakfast, lunch and dinner included


 Day 6 Monument Valley

Visit Horseshoe Bend for that classic Colorado River view before you're on the road again and off to Monument Valley, one of North America's most iconic landscapes. The region has been used as the set for countless Hollywood scenes, from Westerns and Forrest Gump to Back to the Future Part III and family favourite The Lego Movie. Be amazed as your Navajo guide takes you deep into the sacred valley on an included 4x4 tour, learning about the rich Navajo history and myths of the people who live here. An awesome way to finish off an incredible day is by camping in Monument Valley under a blanket of stars.
