from Zion National Park Day Tour
“The sanctuary” – that’s what immediately came to the minds of Mormon settlers when discovering this paradisiac place in the mid-1800s, aptly naming it “Zion”. This truly unparalleled accumulation of steep sandstone cliffs, serene meadows, canyon narrows, weeping rocks, and waterfalls now is yours to explore and happens to be only a short road trip away from the hustle and bustle of the Las Vegas Strip. Even the drive to this refuge for flora, fauna and people alike is nothing short of spectacular. Crossing the Mojave desert northward we journey right through Nevada’s turbulent history – past Native lands, old mining towns and massive mountain ranges loaded with gemstones, gold, and silver.

Steadily gaining elevation we approach the vast Colorado Plateau. Like a sentinel of stone, the Virgin River Gorge seems to guard the entranceway to Utah’s most stunning scenery. This is the region Hollywood chose to film its most famous western movies as well as countless car commercials. The best is yet to come as we enter the national park through a maze of mesas and slot canyons, winding our way down to the historic Mount Carmel Tunnel, an engineering feat of the 1920s to create the “Grand Circle” connecting Zion with Bryce and the Grand Canyon. Small windows in the tunnel wall already give us glimpses of the monumental grandeur that awaits us, but only on the other side Zion Canyon fully presents itself with all its natural beauty.

After an invigorating lunch right in the heart of this magnificent valley, we are ready to follow in the footsteps of its early inhabitants and explore the many trails, viewpoints and scenic sights surrounding us. From hiking up to emerald-colored pools, letting 2000-year-old spring water sprinkle upon us to playing on the Virgin River beaches – Zion National Park is yours to discover!

We had a big day trip out of Phoenix but it was worth every moment. We had an amazing tour of Antelope Canyon one of the guides started singing adding to the magic of the experience. The guides were great advising what setting works best on your camera for photos as well as taking some great photos for us with our phones and cameras. We moved on to Horseshoe bend afterwards which is another incredible place to visit but please refrain from taking dangerous selfies. Our guide looked after us all day providing ample water and comfort stops.
