2020 Tour Details

Discover the captivating Canyonlands on this unforgettable National Parks tour! First, experience Grand Canyon National Park with its spellbinding landscapes that will excite your senses. Your Grand Canyon hotel is located near the rim, giving you a wonderful opportunity to witness great views and have more time to explore this amazing place. In nearby Lake Powell, enjoy a leisurely cruise among the beautiful canyon walls and leisure time to relax or to pursue your favorite activities.

Overnight in Navajo country at the secluded Goulding's Lodge in the heart of Monument Valley—a special feature of your Globus vacation. In Monument Valley, Globus has arranged a couple of unique experiences for you. Enjoy a Navajo cookout while you admire the majestic beauty around you. Have your camera ready for some spectacular shots during your 4-wheel-drive, Navajo-guided tour of mystical Monument Valley.

Enjoy a wine tasting and a relaxing 2-night stay at Red Cliffs Lodge in Moab, located beside the Colorado River at the foot of the dramatic red-rock cliffs—another special feature offered on this Globus vacation. From Moab, visit Arches National Park with its 2,000 natural sandstone arches, Canyonlands National Park, and Dead Horse Point State Park. But that's not all...visit Bryce Canyon National Park, where the slow erosion of ages has created fantastically sculptured rock formations resembling castles. In Zion National Park, enjoy the beauty and peace offered at this park with its massive canyon walls ascending toward the blue sky.

Photos—and even movies—cannot adequately depict the stunning beauty and breathtaking geological formations offered in these destinations; you must experience them yourself. So grab your camera, sit back, and let Globus handle all of the details and driving on this National Parks tour.

"My interest in the national parks began as a child on summer vacations in Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons. In college, I studied Botany, Ichthyology, Mammology, and Ornithology, and I began working in Yellowstone as a summer seasonal guide 25 years ago. I have also worked in Sequoia, the Everglades, and Alaska as a naturalist guide. Whether it's beachcombing in Florida, birding in the Everglades, or hiking in the Tetons, as long as I'm in nature, I'm where I want to be."
