Day by Day

Day Description
1

ARRIVE IN SCOTTSDALE

Welcome to sunny Scottsdale! At 6 pm, meet your travelling companions for a welcome drink. Your Tour Director will prepare you for your upcoming adventure.

2

SCOTTSDALE-SEDONA-GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK

This morning, depart from Scottsdale and travel north through cactusstudded scenery for a break in Sedona, "Arizona's Scenic Sensation." Take an exhilarating 4x4 JEEP TOUR to the top of Mogollon Rim, where you can admire the majestic rock formations and rugged lowland desert. Then, set out for one of America's most beautiful drives as you journey through Oak Creek Canyon, home to brilliantly hued cliffs and rugged spires of sandstone. Arrive this afternoon at the GRAND CANYON, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. The spectacular beauty of this famous attraction draws more than 5 million visitors a year from around the globe. This evening, be sure to watch the spectacular sunset. (B,D)

SPECIAL FEATURE: Your hotel is located near the rim of the Grand Canyon, a rare opportunity for great views and a significant extra when travelling with Globus.

3

GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK

Today, set out to explore the Grand Canyon and learn about its geology and how the canyon was carved. Take scenic Hermit Road, with stops along the way revealing extraordinary views of the deep inner gorge and numerous red buttes and ravines. This afternoon you are free to explore at your own pace. Perhaps venture down part of Bright Angel Trail or take a nature walk with a ranger to learn about the region's native flora and fauna. (B)

4

GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK-LAKE POWELL

If you missed the sunset, sunrise is just as impressive! After breakfast, your Tour Director will suggest optional flightseeing over the Grand Canyon - definitely the thrill of a lifetime. Then, leave via Desert View Point for more magnificent perspectives. On to Lake Powell, where sparkling blue water laps against towering red rock canyon walls and sandy beaches. The majestic beauty of this vast man-made lake can be appreciated on the afternoon CRUISE. See gigantic Glen Canyon Dam and the "tapestry" walls of Antelope Canyon. Free time later for a leisurely stroll along Wahweap Marina on the shores of Lake Powell. (B,D)

5

LAKE POWELL. EXCURSION TO MONUMENT VALLEY

This morning, head to MONUMENT VALLEY NAVAJO TRIBAL PARK, where the weathering action of wind and water has carved the famous sandstone spires and towers that rise hundreds of feet above the valley floor. Enjoy a 4-WHEEL-DRIVE TOUR of Monument Valley with a knowledgeable Navajo guide who shares their culture and how it is influenced by the area. Explore the area's oddly shaped red sandstone monoliths, buttes, and mesas - the setting for some of John Ford's most memorable films. (B)

6

LAKE POWELL-BRYCE CANYON NATIONAL PARK-ZION NATIONAL PARK

Depart from the splendid views of Lake Powell and head for Utah's BRYCE CANYON. Drive through the park, with photo stops to capture the magnificent contrasts of bright red, yellow, and pink pillars called "hoodoos." Years of erosion have carved colourful sandstone into thousands of spires, arches, and mazes for an unforgettable sight. Next, see nearby ZION NATIONAL PARK, a spectacle of massive stone formations whose colours change with the light of the day and the season. To the Mormon pioneers, it was a haven of beauty resembling natural temples and cathedrals, and they called it "Little Zion." (B,D)

7

ZION NATIONAL PARK-LAS VEGAS

Tour Zion Canyon this morning before continuing to Las Vegas for an orientation tour of one of America's most popular holiday destinations. Your resort hotel is located in the heart of the "Strip" for easy access to all the mega-casinos and amusement parks. This evening, your Tour Director hosts a farewell dinner. (B,D)
