Day 1

Your first day takes you to the mountains of Utah where you will set up your camp, wash up and have lunch before beginning your adventure. The Sevier River flows through scenic Marysvale valley, surrounded by mountain peaks rising up to 12,189 feet. It then enters Marysvale Canyon and begins a drop of 60 feet per mile. The steep canyon walls present a scenic backdrop with formations and sheer cliffs rising 500 feet above the rivers course.

You will be an integral part of a team navigating your raft through these exciting rapids. Depending on water conditions and runoff levels, you can choose between a raft or a kayak, but be prepared to get wet. Back at camp we will enjoy a hard-earned dinner by the campfire before turning in for the night.

Day 2

Rise early to enjoy a hike along the river where the pine trees give spectacular scenery around every turn.

After a hearty breakfast you'll travel to Bryce Canyon National Park, where erosion has shaped colorful sandstone into thousands of spires, fins, pinnacles, and mazes. These formations are collectively called "hoodoos". The Navajo or Bristlecone Loop and Queens Garden trails are just a few of the great hiking options available.

Our accommodations for this evening are located just outside of Zion National Park at the beautiful Coral Pink Sand Dunes. The only sand dune on the Colorado Plateau, its colors change and glow in the sunsets. This area is a photographer's paradise so don't forget your camera.

Days 3-4

You will have the next two days to explore Zion National Park. Zion grabs your focus with its sheer sandstone walls and dramatic cliffs. Water trickles through the valley offering stunning vistas.

After a quick stop at the visitor center you will have the opportunity to hike the Narrows (weather permitting), summit Angel's Landing or relax by the Virgin River. Zion offers numerous hiking trails for all abilities, with a free shuttle to all the trailheads. Grab a map, make your plans, and enjoy the day exploring at your own pace.

Horseback riding and canyoneering are both available options for an additional fee. Please inquire beforehand since availability can be limited. For those wanting a break from hiking, the free shuttle to Springdale offers restaurants and shopping with local artists flair.

After a few solid days of hiking and exploring, we will say goodbye to the canyons and return to Las Vegas.
