Explore the Natural Beauty of the American West

Collette’s Canyon Country itinerary features eight days of excitement through Arizona, Utah, Nevada, and three of America’s impressive national parks.

On day one, begin your journey in Scottsdale, Arizona where you will meet your Tour Manager and join fellow travelers for a welcome dinner.

Then let the adventures begin on day two as the tour takes you to explore Sedona. This Arizona desert town is known for its red-rock formations, steep canyon walls, and vibrant art community. Spend your morning shopping at the new age shops and galleries. By the afternoon, make your way to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon after traveling through the Kaibab National Forest.

On day three, soak in the magnificent beauty of the Grand Canyon and discover why it is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Travel along the East Rim to Cameron Trading Post, where travelers and traders stopped for shelter during their explorations for nearly a century. From there, the tour will continue north through the mesa-studded desert before settling at your hotel overlooking Lake Powell’s stunning blue waters for the next couple of nights.

On day four, you will have the opportunity of a lifetime to embark on a guided rafting adventure down the Colorado River to the infamous Horseshoe Bend. Here, you will discover the history of the Puebloan people that used to reside in the area as you adventure through the canyon with your fellow travelers. End your day with stunning views of Lake Powell after cruising through Wahweap Bay to the Glen Canyon Dam.

Day five of your Canyon Country tour through the American West brings you to Bryce Canyon National Park, where you will awe at the massive hoodoos that have been carved out by years of water and wind. Then on day six, spend an entire day, including some independent time, exploring Zion National Park. Experience more stunning landscapes, like the red and white sandstone that contrasts beautifully against the luscious greenery. 

As your tour comes to an end on days seven and eight, trade the natural beauty of the American West for the spectacular lights of the world-renowned Las Vegas Strip. Experience the never-ending entertainment Vegas has to offer with free time to see a show, roll some dice at the craps table, or indulge in elevated cuisine at a Michelin Star restaurant before heading home from this unforgettable adventure.
