Day 4: Grand Canyon – Bryce Canyon – Zion National Park
From the Grand Canyon, you’ll head for Bryce Canyon to marvel at the stunning rock formations that rise from the ground, having been formed by wind and water erosion over millions of years. Iron oxidising means that the rocks take on a series of different colours, with a mixture of orange and red only serving to make the views even more dramatic. Your journey will then take you on to the Zion National Park with its awe-inspiring red and white sandstone cliffs.
  • Zion Park Inn (B,D)
