Fly into Nevada, Las Vegas and catch a direct three hour transfer to the rugged state of Utah. Check into the relaxing Zion Lodge, set amongst the sandstone walls of the dramatic landscapes of Zion National Park. Once you’ve familiarised yourself with the stunning scenery, book into the Red Rock Grill and enjoy a delicious dinner served up with a view of magnificent Zion canyon.
Zion National Park
It’s time to get active and become part of the Zion landscape. With over 200 miles of picturesque walking trails for all levels, from beginners to the serious adventure junkie and everything in between, there’s a multitude of ways in which to enjoy the area’s incredible scenery. For the slightly more laid-back traveller, take a scenic stroll down the Pa’rus trail, where a paved path takes you on a gentle journey to the lower Zion Canyon.
Embrace your inner-explorer
After a leisurely breakfast, it’s time to amp up your trip and get your adrenaline pumping by hiking through ‘The Narrows’ – an epic yet intimate trail that will have you wading in flowing water though the narrow corridors of towering black and red sandstone. Trek through the twists and turns of the canyons and get to know the immense natural structures up close and personal, taking in their more subtle features such as carved alcoves and waterfalls. Once you’ve made your way back to Zion Lodge, spend the rest of your evening at the Castle Dome Café and unwind after the day’s activities.Read more
Off to Amangiri

Arriving at the resort, you’ll be met with total seclusion and sweeping views that unfold over miles of untamed terrain. Built around an outdoor swimming pool, you’ll have your own little desert oasis at your finger tips. Come night time set yourself up in the Amangiri Dining Room, where spectacular floor-to-ceiling windows look out onto incredible panoramas and gourmet food is served up fireside.
Horse Riding and beach hopping
For an authentic desert experience, spend the day exploring the sweeping landscapes, canyons and Sandstone Mountains on horseback. Available at all experience levels, there are a variety of extensive trails offering different riding opportunities from slow pace to gallop. Once the sun goes down, treat yourself to some drinks in the ‘Library’, a serene space with soft, snug couches and board games, perfect for a post dinner night-cap.
Spend your last day away from the expansive desert exploring the canyons by water. Jump aboard a high speed motor boat and take to Lake Powell, where you’ll explore the stunning geological formations of the Colorado Plateau through twisting slot canyons and rugged peaks. Once you’ve had your adrenaline hit, relax and sunbathe on one of the many beaches scattered around the lake’s secluded bays.
