 2025 Tour Details »2024 Tour Details

If you haven’t stood before fairy chimneys or squatting goblins, then you haven’t been on a vacation that truly rocks. Leading you to the nation’s most fascinating chasms, hoodoos, and other rock formations, this canyonlands vacation is as multilayered as the ancient tiers of stone that formed them. Starting under the neon lights of Las Vegas, you’ll make your way to the flame-colored walls of six national parks throughout Arizona and Utah, including Grand Canyon, Arches, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, Bryce Canyon, and Zion National Parks. Rock on with a 4-wheel drive ride through the Navajo Nation’s majestic Monument Valley. Backcountry barbecues, rustic and resort lodges, all within a stone’s throw of the nation’s most spellbinding views only deepen your canyonlands experience.

" 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 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."
