Day 2: Explore the Iconic Narrows of Zion National Park
Your first day exploring the park kicks off with an exciting private tour, led by your expert Good Trip Adventures guide, through the towering sandstone cliffs, narrow slot canyons, and stunning scenery carved by the Virgin River. Your medically-trained, naturalist guide is more than just an expert; they’re an enthusiast. Their passion for Zion’s wonders shines through as they delve into topics like geology, wildlife, indigenous history, and botany. Gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for the park’s intricacies under their expert guidance.
Today’s adventure features the iconic Zion Narrows, a hike that follows the Virgin River deep into the canyon it formed. You’ll start the day getting outfitted with gear for the hike, as it is predominantly hiking in the water. But the effort will be rewarded with the chance to come face to face with the world’s tallest sandstone cliffs, and stunning canyon views lie beyond every bend in the river. Plus, enjoy a catered, gourmet picnic lunch midway through the day with all your favorite snacks and lunchtime goodies.
Part of what makes this tour truly exceptional is its flexibility, catered completely to your interests and abilities. Whether it’s riverbed walking or hiking on cliffside trails, your seasoned guide will tailor the day perfectly to your liking.
Day 3: Private Half-Day Canyoneering
Get even more up close and personal with this region’s famous canyons as you spend the first half of your day rappelling down 50-120 foot walls and canyons. Your expert canyoneering guides will provide all the equipment and instruction needed to get you safely through each section! The rest of your day is free for you to explore at your leisure before moving on to the next part of your adventure.
Don’t hesitate to seek guidance from your experienced guide to ensure you make the most of your day! Your local Good Trip Adventure guides are always eager to share their knowledge and recommendations, whether it be trails away from the crowds, or the best spot to set up your picnic lunch. At the end of the day, enjoy your last evening at Zion Canyon Campground and RV Resort, taking in the beautiful views as the red sandstone cliffs turn amethyst and orange during the sunset.
Day 4: Private Stargazing in Bryce Canyon National Park
Today, you say farewell to Zion’s majestic cliffs and make the approximately 2 hour drive to your next campground in Bryce Canyon City. Set up your personal RV paradise at Ruby’s Inn RV Park & Campground, and spend the afternoon exploring the historic town or Bryce’s hoodoos at your own pace.
In the evening, you will head to the Dark Ranger Observatory for a memorable night. Bryce Canyon is recognized as an International Dark Sky Park, which means optimal conditions for incredible stargazing. Dark Ranger Telescope Tours will provide telescope operating instruction, knowledge of the stars and constellations, and if you bring your DSLR, you can take advantage of an introductory lesson on astrophotography.
Day 5: Private Tour in Bryce Canyon National Park
Today, you will walk the paths traveled long ago by both ancient indigenous peoples and pioneers alike. Peer up at massive sandstone cliffs, hoodoos, and spires of cream and pink that soar into the brilliant blue sky. Bryce’s unique geologic location means it’s home to a wide array of plants and animals which will enchant you as your Good Trip Adventures guide shares the rich history of the park and surrounding area during this private hiking tour.
Choose between a birds eye view as you walk along the rim trails, or hike down into the maze of hoodoos and pillars along the aptly named Fairyland Loop. Part way through your day, enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch full of your favorite foods. Your guides are masters at tailoring the day to your interests and abilities, ensuring a day filled with unforgettable experiences as you explore all the amazing views this Park has to offer.
In the evening, you’ll head back to Ruby’s Inn RV Park for a relaxing evening–see if you can see and remember the names of the constellations you learned from your stargazing adventure last night!
Day 6: Until Next Time!
As your incredible journey draws to a close, embark on an approximately four and a half hour drive from Bryce Canyon City back to Las Vegas.
