Full Day by Day Itinerary
There certainly is only one Grand Canyon! Perched on the southern rim of Grand Canyon National Park you will enjoy wonderful exploration of one of the seven natural wonders of the world. During your two nights in the area, we assume that you will you hike and explore this surprising and beautiful landscape. Depending on the availability of a guide on December 25th, I have suggested enlisting the knowledge of one of our favorite naturalists for full day of exploration in the Grand Canyon.
You will arrive and depart from Las Vegas, making your own flight and rental car arrangements.
Privately guided full day hiking and exploring in Grand Canyon National Park –
We would recommend a great day of privately guided hiking and exploring in Grand Canyon National Park. Your guide will meet-up with you in the morning and tailor the day to your interests and their knowledge of the best experiences and options for your day. It makes all of the difference in the world to join a local guide who loves to share their passion and deep knowledge
Departing the Grand Canyon today you will be heading to the small, park-entrance town of Springdale located just outside the entrance to Zion National Park. Zion Canyon, which has been chiseled out by the Virgin River over time, is filled with massive stone formations, hidden slot canyons, stunning overlooks, and absolutely jaw-dropping landscapes. During your time in the area, I suggest two great options to make the most of your time. On your first full day, I suggest heading out with excellent local guides to tackle beginner canyoneering in one of the many slot canyons adjacent to Zion National Park. On your second full day, I suggest exploring Zion on your own using the help and guidance of your customized Journey Guidebook. Perfect!
Privately guided full-day beginner canyoneering –
We would recommend a classic desert southwest activity that is simply over-the-top fun and exciting – canyoneering! Your expert guides will match you to the right area for enjoying this fun activity. During the activity, you will make your way through a classic slot canyon environment by hiking, climbing, rappelling and generally using your own devices to weave through the wind- and water-hewn canyons. Lunch on the trail is included in your day.
Hiking and exploring on your own in Zion National Park –
No trip to Zion National Park would be complete without a great day exploring the heart of the park – Zion Canyon. Using your trusty Journey Guidebook, you will plan your day according to your interests for exploring and experiencing this unique canyon environment. Dwelling in the base of the canyon you will have the option of renting bikes and riding your way or getting out for one or more fabulous hikes within the canyon – or both! Many hikes are described in your guidebook, along with details that will inform your decisions for the day.
After an early breakfast, you will drive back to the airport for your departure flight. Return home, taking with you the sights, sounds, and memories of an incredible holiday!
