National Park Treasures Escorted Tours

6 Nights

Las Vegas, NV

Starting in Utah’s Salt Lake City and ending in Nevada’s entertainment mecca of Las Vegas.

After taking in the State Capitol building and the huge Mormon Temple at Temple Square, we head out of Salt Lake City into the magnificent canyon scenery of Moab and then experience two beautiful parks in quick succession. First, we visit the Arches National Park, with its thousands of sandstone arches and then Canyonlands National Park on the Colorado River. Our next stop is the Capitol Reef National Park with its famous Chimney Rock pillar before we continue on to Bryce Canyon and the gorgeous Lake Powell. Our next stop is the majestic Grand Canyon, one of the seven great natural wonders of the world, and once you have taken in its endless views, we head for Flagstaff, Arizona, immortalised in the song ‘Route 66’. From there, we climb the Coconino Plateau into the arid beauty of the Mojave Desert, stopping at another Route 66 town, Seligman, on our way to the world’s entertainment capital Las Vegas, a city that never sleeps.
