Note: what goes down must come up! Adequate footwear, sun protection and water must be brought on any of the listed hikes.

Grab lunch to go remember, you have that cooler! A free minute video provides an overview of activities and park facilities, plus rangers are on hand to answer any questions you might have. Get back on the shuttle and head up to Zion Lodge. Swimming is not allowed, but generations of families have enjoyed this iconic Zion Canyon trail for many years.

Wear Tevas, Chacos or other footwear that hold up to water, but are still good for hiking. Easy Zion National Park Hikes. Head back to Springdale, UT for dinner. Get some sleep, and be down for some serious adventure in the morning! Option 1 — Hike the Narrows. This is the hike to take in Zion National Park for the ultimate bragging rights. Hire a licensed guide to hike the Narrows and let them do all that for you!

Caution: The Narrows are subject to flash flood dangers, especially during the monsoon season of late July — early September. It may be closed to hikers during this or any other timeframe, or in weather conditions determined to be dangerous. This is the grand-daddy of all Zion National Park hikes, not for the faint of heart, out-of-shape, or terrified of heights.

A few people have fallen off the trail. Chains are placed on either side of the trail to aid those who might need extra leverage on the section between the Hogsback to the Landing. The trail begins and ends at the Grotto in Zion Canyon. Do your research, watch YouTube videos, and do more research before you commit to this hike.

As with all hikes in the Southwest U. Option 3 — Go tubing on the Virgin River. Rent a river tube from one of several Springdale, UT outfitters, hop in and enjoy the 2-mile ride down the Virgin River, which carved Zion Canyon, and believe it or not, empties into Lake Mead near Las Vegas. Children must be at least 8 to take part in this activity, which is also contingent on a sufficient volume of water in the river.

Option 4 — Go horseback riding. Rides of one and three hours in length show you natural wonders of Zion National Park both out in the open, and behind the scenes such as the Three Patriarchs, the Beehives, and beautiful cactus gardens. The 1 hour ride open to children 7 and up follows the Virgin River to the Court of the Patriarchs and back to the loading corral. Advance reservations strongly recommended.

Go back to your hotel, and if it has a hot tub, enjoy a nice long soak, order in for dinner , then rest up for the 2. Like the sound of this, or did we leave anything out? Feel free to leave us a comment below. And remember, your experiences — the good, the bad and the ugly — will always be of help to future travelers in the area. Thank you so much for this awesome itinerary and guide! We are mapping out a trip for the beginning of August, as we cannot travel in the off-season, and your advice has been so helpful in our planning.

I am hoping to get your input regarding our tentative plan, as we are two 22 year olds hoping to stick to a tight budget! If there is anything we could cut out without missing too much, that would be great to know. Here is what we are thinking:. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much. Hi Lauren, Your trip looks very well-planned, and really fun! The biggest obstacle I can see you running up against, however, is with a car rental.

Many rental car outlets require that you be at least 25 to rent a vehicle. Therefore, any tours you do in the Page, AZ, area should be scheduled for earlier morning hours. Afternoon tours are often cancelled due to heightened flash flood danger, excessive heat warnings, or both. It looks as though you have planned accordingly for that, so again, high five! On Day 4 — plan on hitting Horseshoe Bend just after sunrise. Sunset at Horseshoe Bend is terribly crowded, and you may have troubles finding a place to park.

In August, sunrise occurs at about AM. Otherwise, you may want to skip the Virgin River tubing on your 8th day. Whatever you decide, keep in mind that there will be construction taking place on I through the Virgin River Gorge that could delay your arrival into Las Vegas by minutes. Hope that helps.

Canyon de Chelly

Please feel free to hit us up again if we can offer further suggestions! Thank you so much for the suggestions! We really appreciate it and we are looking forward to our first time in Arizona! Hi Alley! I am so glad that I found your plan and followed it last week to a perfect trip including food. Hi Sanzeeda, Thank you so much for taking the time to let us know how your trip went!

If you ever have a chance to return to the area, check out our day Grand Circle Tour itinerary for even suggestions on cool places to go and fun things to do. I have 6 nights arriving into Vegas at Sunday: arrive Vegas I have a cabin booked at Bryce Lodge…this is a long drive I know and hopefully we can get there before sunset…. Then drive to Zion staying at Cable Mountain Lodge. Tuesday: planning on spending until 2pm in Zion NP.

I know this is not enough! I am Interested in smaller trails and not Angels Landing or the Narrows as they would be too much for my son. Friday: Sun rise at the rim and walk around then drive to Vegas via Hoover Dam….. Accommodation is booked near the airport as have a 9am flight. Bryce is more important than Zion…. Am I trying to do too much or is this doable? Any suggestions to tweak. Traveling with my husband and son who is Hey Jenny, Your itinerary looks pretty fun, and well-planned. Changing them at this point will be next to impossible.

Even if all goes according to plan, expect to take at least minutes after landing to get underway from McCarran Airport. The reason for the longish estimate is because there is construction taking place on a stretch of I through the Virgin River Gorge that is very likely to hold you up. The key is to make sure that you get to your final destination well before sunset.

Driving at night in this part of the U. On Wednesday, plan on visiting Horseshoe Bend just after sunrise. The mid-day hours get very crowded, and hot. A sunrise visit offers the advantages of cooler temperatures and fewer people to contend with. Oftentimes, the best memories of vacations are the moments that unfold unexpectedly. RE: Zion, you are correct in that more time there would be preferable. Alley, thank you so much for your words of wisdom…you are amazing!

Great to know it is better to head to Horseshoe Bend just after sunrise to avoid the crowds! All things considered it might be wise to head to Zion first and then head to Bryce on Monday….. It looks like there will be the same road works going to Zion…how long do you think it will take to get to Zion??? Hi again, Jenny!

If you end up doing that, expect the drive from Las Vegas to take Just request it at the entrance station of the first National Park you visit. Have a great trip! Wow- so much great information!! I am now trying to see what I can do to make it all work. Here are the details- Leave the Black Hills area early on June 29…had planned a stop somewhere between there and Moab but have not reserved yet.

We will have a pull camper and I realize we may be in for some long drives pretty unavoidable. So I have two nights reserved in Moab June 30 and July 1 , then I had planned a night in Monument Valley, a night in Springdale, and then a night in Torrey before heading home either straight through or staying in CO somewhere … Could I just change the following: Monument Valley to somewhere near North Rim and add a night there?

What do you suggest?? Thank you so much!! Be sure to verify the feasibility of any routes you propose to travel before you setting out. Utah Scenic Byway 12 for example is an amazingly beautiful road, but some advise against traveling it with a camper in tow. Then again, others have done it and lived to tell the story, so do some research and decide for yourself.

A good place to break up the drive would be Ft. Collins or Boulder, CO. RE: adding Grand Canyon North Rim to your itinerary, you are correct in that the most logical way to accomplish this would be to drop Monument Valley from your wish list. Kanab is on the Western edge of Zion, so it only takes about 30 minutes one way to drive to Zion — assuming you can unhook your tow vehicle from your camper easily enough — then the following day, visit the North Rim as a day trip.

In late June, you have long daylengths working in your favor. Keep an eye on the clock and make sure you time your return trip so you are back to Kanab by sunset. Hope that helps! Hello I need some help please. We are in need of a schedule we land in vegas Not sight seeing there and have 9 days. We want to see Hoover Dam. Can someone help please? Then, Antelope Canyon tour availability would be the next step to take. Good luck and safe travels! Alley- I love reading your posts! So happy I found you! We are a family with 2 teenage boys planning a trip this summer and I was hoping to get some feedback from you… June arrive in Las Vegas June arrive Grand Canyon South Rim June arrive in Page July 1- drive thru Momument Valley and arrive at Moab We will then be heading into Colorado since we will need to check into a dude ranch near Laramie July 4.

I originally wanted to add Zion at the beginning of the trip but decided that might be too much. Unless you think we could squeeze it in? Any advice or recommendations would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much!

Note that there is some construction going on on a stretch of I through the Virgin River Gorge that will add some time onto an already long drive, anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. The article linked in the prior passage does suggest an alternate route. Whether or not you can do this is contingent on whether or not you can change your lodging reservations in Page, AZ, and the Grand Canyon, as well as your Antelope Canyon tour reservations. If you are able to pull all that off, you can then hit Monument Valley and Moab, UT, as originally planned.

Nevertheless, plan on spending at least 2 days in Moab. I am so glad I found this site!! Planning a trip to Vegas and onward to drive around the Canyon and back… your 7 day trip seems a bit rushed, if I followed it but spread everything out over 2 days would you recommend that? Or would you recommend some areas , one day is enough? Hey Wendi, and congratulations on your upcoming anniversary! If you have more time to spend on this American Southwest tour itinerary, then by all means, do it.

But then again, if you have 14 days to spend, you could do something like this: HorseshoeBend. Feel free to his us up again if we can offer further guidance! Hi there! Your itineraries are amazing!!! We are thinking of flying into Las Vegas and spending a day or two there and then heading to Grand Canyon for a couple of days.

From there we would like to visit Monument Valley and stay there a night or two and then thinking of heading up to Salt Lake City to fly back home. What are your thoughts on this? We are thinking about days for the trip. It is 2 adults and 2 children ages 12 and 8. Thanks in advance! You may need to be prepared to flip-flop this itinerary if availability of those two trip elements is more conducive to doing so. For a 7 day trip including 4 corners what would you recommend.

We can start any location! Thank you! Hi Cecilia and thank you for your inquiry. First of all, before you totally upend your vacation plans, you should decide whether or not you really want to include the Four Corners Monument in your itinerary. Hi Alley, Wow so much good information here!

Hi Kathy, and congratulations on your impending retirement! With that in mind, a sample itinerary would go something along the lines of: Day 1: Drive to Sedona, AZ. Overnight in Sedona. Those 62 and over qualify for a lifetime pass. You can pre-order it online, or simply purchase it at the first National Park you visit. Feel free to hit us up again if we can be of further assistance. Alley, Thank you so very much!

Trying to see and do as much as possible and keep everyone entertained without outstripping attention spans and our tolerance for too many back-to-back long car rides together :. Another consideration is that nighttime driving is not a good idea in this part of the country due to the dearth or sometimes complete lack of artificial lighting on local roads, and the tendency of deer, elk, free range cattle, and even wild horses to congregate around them at night. You are correct in that Lake Powell boat tours will take the better part of a day, hours usually.

The current tour schedule is two daily departures, one at AM and a second at PM. Also, depending on the water level of Lake Powell, you may have to hike miles round trip from the boat dock to the bridge. Fixed wing airplanes depart from Page Municipal Airport daily. Mornings are the best time to fly for best light and lack of wind. Just after sunrise is also the best time to visit Horseshoe Bend for cooler temperatures and thinner crowds.

This will potentially add another hour on your drive time between Zion and Las Vegas. Thank you very much for all of this information — I really appreciate it. Thank you again. Hey again, Jazmin, sorry again for taking a few days to get back to you.

THE TOP 10 Arizona Private & Custom Tours (w/Prices)

June 18th: Second day in Sedona, in the morning, do one of several easy but scenic hikes in the area, perhaps take the Pink Jeep Broken Arrow Tour, hit some sites you may have missed the day prior. If you agree with that assessment, there are opportunities where you can shave some time off, for example, dropping that 3rd night in Moab, UT, or perhaps driving from Page, AZ, to Monument Valley and spending the night in that area instead of 2 nights in Page, AZ. Before you commit to those alterations, however, be sure that lodging availability in ALL proposed destinations would accommodate doing so.

We are taking 17 days for this trip and renting a car, we wish to do the following. We only have booked the hotel in San Diego so far. If the trip is possible, what would the schedule look like? If not, suggestions will be sooo appreciated. We would like to do some walks or swim by a river or a boat ride, do a guided tour of the mesas dwellings or a guided tour of the Monument Valley. Also I will like to include a stay at a ranch that offers horseback riding or rodeo show, maybe a living history museum. Hi Jazmin, thanks for visiting us. I apologize for the delay in response to your inquiry.

Given the constraints you indicate, i. Essentially: do all your hiking or high-intensity activities in the morning. June 18th: Second day in Sedona, in the morning, do one of several easy but scenic hikes in the area. On the way, you might take the opportunity to stop at the Acoma Pueblo just West of Albuquerque.

June 21st: Second night in Santa Fe, explore the historic plaza area, or visit one of the many art galleries and museums in the area. There are lots of easy but beautiful hikes in Zion! June 29th — July 1st: San Diego.

So — as you can see, some long drives are going to be required in order to pull this all off. We have family in Prescott Valley, AZ that we wanted to visit at the end of this short park tour. We will be driving from Redlands, CA. This is what I think we should do. Please let me know if I should choose another path or go somewhere else instead. Hi Rob and thank you for visiting our site! It takes days, bare minimum, to explore Arches, Canyonlands, Dead Horse Point, maybe do some rafting or 4-wheeling, etc. In light of all that, I recommend taking Moab off the table, saving it for a future trip at a cooler time of year and either a.

Fixed wing airplanes depart from the Page Municipal Airport daily, usually first thing in the morning for best light and lack of wind. Scenic flights of Monument Valley last 90 minutes and also include a flyover of Rainbow Bridge! Try to hit Horseshoe Bend just after sunrise so you can take advantage of cooler temperatures and fewer people to contend with. Between AM and PM parking is virtually impossible to find.

Most of these drives are very scenic and you will be stopping to take photos often, I guarantee! That could delay your arrival into Springdale, UT, up to an hour. Your itinerary is so very helpful! If you have 8 full days arrive at 4 p. Thanks so much for your help! Hi Sarah, Thank you for your compliments on our itinerary!

Please feel free to hit us up again if we can be of further assistance. I love your post! Thank you for the suggestions. My family and I are planning to do a road trip in late June. We were planning to rent an RV and drive, but I am wondering if we should rent a car and stay in hotels? I would really love to get to Moab so my husband and kids could see Arches, but I realize it is the furthest away.

My husband and girls have not seen any of the southern Utah parks or the Grand Canyon. Our girls are 10 and 12 and quite fit so we are able to hike and do most activities. What would you suggest? I love hiking, and the girls and I ride horses so some trail rides would be fun.

Should we start at GC and loop around ending at Zion? Or should we do the opposite? Hi Jennifer, and thank you for visiting our site. The area where you can potentially realize some significant savings is with the ability to prepare your own meals instead of eating out all the time. So, given your flight dates, you have 8 full days to work with on this vacation. I know your priority was the Utah parks, but Sedona, AZ, is a beautiful area with all kinds of beautiful hikes and fun activities that are family-friendly.

You might also need to be prepared to flip-flop this itinerary in case lodging availability at the Grand Canyon or lack thereof is more conducive to hitting last on your tour. You have so many great ideas. I am planning on taking my kids to Kanab to spend a few days at the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary the first week in August. They are thirteen year old twins, one boy and one girl. We are from south Florida. We will fly in and out of Vegas, I think. Moab looks amazing, but might be too far to add given that we only have seven or eight nights, Saturday to Sunday. Thanks in advance.

Las Vegas would probably be the best place to fly into and out of, but you might also look at Phoenix. Another possibility is Zion, which you can visit as a day trip, or perhaps as a detour on your way back to Las Vegas. You might also take advantage of the opportunity to do the Glen Canyon Float Trip with an early start out of Kanab.

A couple of things to always keep in mind: 1. Driving at night is strongly discouraged in this part of the U. Hi, Im looking to travel in early august from salt lake city down to southern utah national parks and include Antelope and horseshoe,page,Zion Bryce, moab in 8 nights, we dont mind driving.

Have you already been there before? Day 3: 2nd day in Zion, overnight in Springdale or Kanab. Overnight in Moab. Be sure you make advance reservations for all lodging and guided tours in advance of your trip. Be prepared to flip-flop this itinerary if lodging availability is more conducive to hitting Moab first, then Bryce last. Good luck and safe travels. Thanks so much for the amazing itinerary and the tips!

I am trying to adopt lot of your plans into our family trip in early June which is about 1 month away. I have been trying to work out our plan for a few days, and still doing pick and choose places within our limited timeframe. Do you think this plan is feasible? Could you please give me some suggestions where and how long we should stay in each area? We would really appreciate it. Hi Rita and thank you for your visit today! Zion would be a further 2 hours from there.

See show that night, fly out of Las Vegas the following morning. Most visitors agree that nights is the minimum time you should allot. Another thing: if you do take us up on the suggestion to visit Monument Valley as a day trip from Page, keep an eye on the time. Be sure to time your return drive so that you are not doing any of it at night. Hi Alley, Thank you so much for sending me these great ideas to make our trip plan work better.

I am trying to make our final plan by using your suggestions. Thanks again for taking lot of your time to make the plan for us, we really appreciate it! Allie, I just want to thank you for your invaluable hints and suggestions. We spent two nights everywhere except for in Page, one night there, and just a stop at the Hoover Dam.

That gave us a full day and a half in each place for exploring, it was a perfect amount of time. It also gave us three days with no driving, which was appreciated. This was also such a good time of year to visit, the weather was great and the crowds were certainly manageable. A huge thanks from us in Maine. You are the BEST. My daughter said that she feels like we should have found you while we were in Page and bought you a gift, your advice was so helpful.

But I appreciate the sentiment. Hope you get a chance to return to the area someday. Thank you for keeping this public. Spend the day until mid afternoon. Day 2: Sunrise at Bryce, explore Bryce until noon. Leave to Horseshoe bend. If still time, boat tour in Lake Powell. Lodge in Page. Day 3: Free morning, thinking about Cathedral or Secret Canyon, or do you suggest another tour? Booked Upper Antelope at pm. Leave to Grand Canyon for sunset at Hopi point.

Lodge in Grand Canyon. Day 4: Grand Canyon sunrise. Leave to Sedona, nothing booked there so far. Heading to Flagstaff for the night. Day 5: Depart from Flagstaff in the morning. Still, we wanted to fit at least a stop along the way there. Yet, we could skip the Grand Canyon night, and stay a second night in Page day 3 heading for a full day in Sedona day 4.

If you have time I would love to hear your opinion! Thank you very very much!!! Hey Julia, thank you so much for your compliments! On Day 2, do the drive to Bryce, which is about 1. Then overnight in Page, AZ.

Free Cancellation: Get a full refund up to 24 hours in advance on most experiences. One of the most common found pictographs depicted is the flute player, called Lahlanhoya by the Hopi. Maps available for your stroll to other art venues in downtown Williams, plus meet the featured artist and regular artist members, If you are looking for axle snapping fun, check into other Jeep Jamboree USA events located all over the country. I would leave Yellowstone for a separate vacation. Although the Hopi left this area to permanently settle on the mesa tops to the west, the Hopi still hold on to many of their traditions that are evident from their homes and kivas.

On Day 4, hit Horseshoe Bend , and start heading toward Sedona. After giving the Grand Canyon a quick wave, head down to Sedona, and instead of driving back to Flagstaff, AZ, that night, simply overnight in Sedona. You could stop by Hoover Dam on the way if you wanted. Something very important to keep in mind is that nighttime driving is strongly discouraged in this part of the U.

This is due to lack of ambient lighting on local roads, and the tendency of deer, elk, free range cattle, and sometimes wild horses, to gravitate toward them at night, which ratchets up your accident risk. Any driving needs to be done during daylight hours. As for hikes, viewpoints, etc. Zion in particular has had a lot of rain and snowfall this year, which has resulted in some of the more popular hikes being off-limits until trails are repaired.

I am working on planning a 6 night Sun-Sat Trip! We do not have flights yet. Would love to do a water activity at some point because it will be first week of July.

Canyon De Chelly Vacation Travel Video Guide

Also 4th of July is that Thursday- any suggestions on where we should spend the 4th?? This is what I was thinking— not sure if it is feasible! Thank you so much in advance! Sun: Arrive in LV drive halfway to Zion-is there anywhere interesting to stop and stay overnight? If not we could drive all the way there and do a smaller hike or walk through the park?

Monday Hike Angels landing , dinner in Springdale, stay overnight. Tuesday- drive to Horseshoe Bend or Antelope Canyon? Weds am- drive to GC. Hi Leah, and thank you for visiting. Be sure to make advance reservations for Antelope Canyon Tours. Then plan on hitting Horseshoe Bend just after sunrise on your way out of town to the Grand Canyon. One caveat to that, though, is that if the summer is abnormally dry, fireworks displays may be cancelled for safety reasons. After all, it is the desert! Alley, I e-mailed you yesterday and already have change of plans. Would like to include Sedona.

My daughter has never been to LV. Wanted to spend a day there. Do you think I really need 2 days in Sedona? Can I see in one day? Hey Jeff, thank you for visiting today. So, do you need 2 days in Sedona? You need 3 or 4 at least, but 2 days is definitely better than 1. Drive time: Tour Antelope Canyon , Horseshoe Bend. Overnight in Bryce or nearby. Another option if you really want to see Monument Valley is to do a flight over it out of Page Municipal Airport. Alley, I like your suggestion to spend 2 days in Sedona and will drop day from LV.

Do you recommend going to both Sedona and Momument Valley or should we go elsewhere? My daughter definitely wants to do Antelope Canyon. Tentative sched is as follows feel free to suggest alternative sched. Thx a million and your help is really appreciated. Tour Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend. Hi again, Jeff! If you had to prioritize one place over another, Sedona would definitely win out. There are all kinds of ways to have a fun and memorable 2-day visit to Page, AZ. Have fun! Alley, you are so helpful and your website is so informative.

I have decided to bypass monument valley and spend 2 days in page, AZ. However, I am a bit concerned about when to visit Antelope canyon. Please advise. Hi Jeff! You are correct that Antelope Canyon tours may be cancelled in the event of excessive heat, which is a frequent occurrence in late July, along with flash floods.

Touring Antelope Canyon at AM will still be beautiful, and cooler. In addition to cooler temperatures, a sunrise visit also offers the benefit of fewer people to contend with. Sunrise in late July occurs at about AM. Either tour would be a very worthwhile addition to your vacation! Just be sure you drink plenty of fluids, and choose the earliest departure available for maximum comfort. Oh, regarding how you might still get to see Monument Valley without actually driving there: you might consider flying over it.

Fixed wing airplanes depart from the Page Municipal Airport daily, usually first thing in the morning for better light and less wind. A minute overflight of Monument Valley also includes a flyover of Rainbow Bridge! Hope that helps — good luck and safe travels!

Great tour operator for Canyon de Chelly - Canyon de Chelly National Monument

Hi Alley — I am looking to plan a vacation to UT this summer and I am just in the beginning phases of planning. I plan to fly into Las Vegas and from there I have an open slate. I will be bringing my 19yo and my 15yo who can do only mild hiking — he has Cerebral Palsy. Could you help me build an itinerary? Start by checking those two things first, and the rest of your tour elements should fall into place rather easily.

If you have an ADA placard, bring that with you. It might grant you access to areas that are normally closed to private vehicles. Be sure to clarify these guidelines upon entry into each park, or visit the individual accessibility guides online for each park. We will flight to and from Las Vegas airport. We will reach at Las Vegas at night on 5th May. I was wondering if you can help me with the itinerary. I have read your previous response. Our biggest goals are GC, Antelope canyon.

Hi Anthony! With that many children under the age of 5, your itinerary will be highly influenced by what they can and cannot do, mostly the latter. Staying inside the park is always most desirable; if nothing is available there, then Tusayan, 7 miles outside the park is your next best option. It will take approximately 4.

Approximate drive time is 5 hours, no stops. Hit Horseshoe Bend on the way into town, parking permitting. Overnight in Page, AZ. There are 4 tour companies that tour Upper Antelope Canyon , but only 3 allow younger children. Advance reservations are required. Spend 2nd night in Page, AZ.

Explore around in Zion, there are lots of easy, but scenic hikes you can take as a family in that area. May 12th: Spend 2nd day in Zion area. May 13th: Fly home Again, availability of lodging at the Grand Canyon will be the thing to book first. If you have to flip-flop your itinerary, i. Be sure that you make reservations for Antelope Canyon tours in advance of your arrival as well. Hi Alley, Thank you so much for your valuable information. Appreciated for your suggestion on how to make our trip more efficient.

What a helpful and detailed site! Hopefully you can help me with my questions. Is 1 day per canyon, not including driving, enough? Also, we have an extra day not currently scheduled, and I am overwhelmed by the canyon possibilities. Antelope is not an option at this point. Or is there something else you highly recommend doing as a family I did look into the Float trip, horseback rides and other things? Hi Courtney, and thank you for your compliments! However, the ability to prepare your own meals is a definite money-saver.

For first-time visitors, Grand Canyon South Rim is recommended over the North Rim because it has more in the way of visitor services, plus the North Rim is only open from May 15th-October 15th. As to what order you visit the various parks in, that will most likely depend on when you can get reservations. BTW, 1 day in each place is enough for some, but not for others. Zion, in particular, deserves at least days to do it justice.

As for other attractions to add, there are all kinds of possibilities. If so, consider touring one of several alternate slot canyons , many of which are in the same drainage system as Antelope, and are just as beautiful. Moab, UT is another place that needs at least 3 days.


Monument Valley can do with just 1. Between Bryce and Mesa Verde, Capitol Reef is a place you pretty much have to pass through anyway, and is beautiful. If your time is limited, you might consider leaving Mesa Verde off the table. My husband and I would like to follow your suggested itinerary for our7 day trip this September with flying in and out from Las Vegas.

Our journey will starts early in the morning of September 27 and fly home at 1 pm on October 3. Is it possible if we want to include Sedona in our trip? If yes, please advise how. Many thanks…. Hi Halima! Fall is our favorite season! Cooler temperatures, thinning crowds, and all the activities you want to do are still available.

If you wish to add Sedona to your itinerary, you will need to sacrifice one of the stops on this itinerary, and I suggest dropping Monument Valley. Hi Alley, Thanks so much for your valuable input. However, on second thought, we would love to keep the Monument Valley this time and save Sedona for our next trip. Your further advice would be most appreciated. Hi Halima, thanks for hitting us up again! Both Moab and Zion really do need more than a day to do them justice.

Feel free to write again if you want to bounce more ideas off us! Take care, Alley. I need some time to digest your suggestions before getting back to you for more details. Thanks so much again for your valuable information. Hi thank you so much for the great information! I have 2 different plans and would like your opinion option 1 wondering if should I skip Sedona and stay longer in Zion?

If so, it may be a bit difficult to change them at this point. It takes at least 2 hours to drive from Springdale to Bryce, then another 3 hours or so to drive from Bryce to Page. A nighttime collision with one of these animals has ruined many a vacation! Thank you so much for your input! I only have one reservation for Thursday night for Maswik lodge at the Grand canyon, was trying to decide on route before making more reservations. I think springdale, UT might be the next hardest to find so guess I will look there next.

Do you think Monument valley could be added to this trip and take out sedona? If I take out sedona, where would that extra day be best spent? So much to see, so little time! Thanks again! Hey Paula, thanks for seeking out further guidance! I guess the thing to ask is do you think you could make it back out here in the foreseeable future to spend a week or so in Sedona? The main reason being that lodging is going to be just about impossible to find.

Howeverrrrrrr………ha ha ha…….. Westwind Air Service offers fixed wing airplane flights over Monument Valley out of the Page Municipal Airport scroll about half way down that page to get to the info you need. It will be me, my wife and kids age 14, 12 and 7. I assume any water activities are out of the question in November. Also, we have 10 days vs only 7 in case that inspires any more suggestions. Really appreciate your site! Hi Wes and thank you for your inquiry! The primary difference between November and the summer months, obviously, is weather, which will have an affect on what activities you might partake of.

Fortunately, most are still in full swing, like Antelope Canyon tours. These of course run weather permitting, and may be contingent on a certain number of people signing up. The hardest part will no doubt be choosing which place to see. Which parks and hikes easy-med do you recommend? South Rim hotels , restaurants, and other visitor facilities are open year round.

North Rim hotels , etc. Grand Canyon North Rim is 4. That makes a long drive back to the Las Vegas Airport from Sedona though. Am I trying to do too much in a week? Have never seen any of these places! Thanks for your input. Hi Laura, Putting Sedona at the end of your trip would definitely make for a long drive back to Las Vegas, about 5 hours.

One observation I can make is that the Grand Canyon is conspicuously absent from your itinerary. Better to look for lodging closer to the park, either in Grand Canyon Village, or Tusayan, just 7 miles South of the park. Grand Canyon hotels Hope that helps! Me and my husband will be in GC on May, from 8th to 13th. Our biggest goals are: west and out rim GC, Antelope canyon. Thus, I was thinking to add to our goals Bryce canyon and, if there is enough time, zion canyon. Would you suggest us an unforgettable itinerary? Thank you so much!!! Hi again, Manuela! If you prefer, you could take that second day I recommended spending and Page and allot it to Zion or Bryce.

It would be wise to pad your estimated drive time by at least 1 hour to be on the safe side. Hope you have a wonderful trip! Thank you so much, your suggestions are precious for us! Sorry for the two questions, I thought my first one was lost! At the meantime, I saw that following your itinerary we will able to visit even the Monument Valley! So cool! My husband and I are planning a trip to GC. Thus, we have 4 full days and one-half day. I read your itinerary and I loved It! Our biggest goals are the grand canyon south rim and also west rim would be perfect!

Could you suggest an unforgettable itinerary, since we are planning to rent a car? I was also wondering how is the wheater like in May…. At Grand Canyon West, not so much. There are also many points of interest in the Navajo Reservation upon leaving the park. Spend 2nd night in Page. Fly home. Be sure that you have all lodging and guided tours reserved before you travel. We are planning a trip with our 13 and 15 year old daughters in July.

Here is our plan so far but have a number of questions in the itinerary. Please help! July 6- Arrive in Vegas in the early morning and drive to Grand Canyon. Spend afternoon at GC. Spend night at GC. Is hours enough time in GC? We will do a tour of the Canyon in the morning and then go to Horseshoe bend in late afternoon. Is the Lake Powell boat trip worth doing? Stay in Page. Any suggestions here? Stay at Bryce Canyon log cabins this night.

July 9- Spend day at Bryce Canyon Park. What do you recommend to do here? Do we need more than one day here? Stay night in Springdale. I saw another itinerary where they drove to Las Vegas stopping by Red Cliffs, followed by late afternoon tour of Hoover Dam, then spend the night. The reason for this is because a good chunk of your Grand Canyon sightseeing will actually occur on the drive to Page. Hopefully you already have your Grand Canyon lodging booked!

For a shorter boat tour, such as the Antelope Canyon waterside , that can easily be accommodated in a single day along with Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend. I recommend visiting Horseshoe Bend just after sunrise to take advantage of cooler temperatures and smaller crowds.
