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.
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
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.
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.
Snow canyon is a hidden gem nestled deep in a valley of tall craggy
cliffs and snow covered peaks. The landscape is sharply contrasted with fiery sandstone and black lava beds.
This area offers hikes among pinyon pines and pink sand. Crawl down into a lava tube, or
wind your way through sandstone alleys to the most amazing views. Don't forget to bring your camera and tripod.
The wildflowers bloom in springtime, dotting the landscape with hues of purple and yellow.
You won't find the crowds of the more popular parks here, but you will find a nice way to wind down your vacation.
Our guides favor this park, and for good reason. Snow Canyon is one of southern Utah's best kept secrets. There
is no better way to finish your trip than spending a day here.
