Tour by Day
Day One: Welcome to Zion National Park!
Your guides will greet you at your hotel in Las Vegas, and we’re off to Springdale, Utah—the gateway to Zion National Park. We’ll begin with a welcome toast and lunch, then take care of the essentials: bike fitting and safety review, before setting off along the virtually car-free Floor of the Valley Road. Marvel at the majestic cliffs and wonderful array of colors. Continue to the Desert Pearl Inn, the best location on the edge of the park, for some time to relax. We’ll regroup tonight for dinner at one of Springdale’s best restaurants.

Day Two: Hike to Scout Lookout and Bike East Zion
This morning begins with a hike up to Scout Lookout for an amazing view of the canyon. Those up for the challenge of a more technical trail can continue another half mile out to the park’s iconic Angels Landing. Enjoy a picnic lunch before we transfer out the East Entrance of the Park. Here, hop on your bike for a delightful long gradual descent past brilliant geological formations, like the distinctive Checkerboard Mesa, back into the valley. Tonight you’ll enjoy a meal at another of Zion’s many delicious restaurants.

Today we’ll explore the heart of Zion on a surreal hike through the Narrows in this majestic valley. Hike up the Virgin River through its cool waters that wind through the canyon. Hanging gardens burst from dramatically colored walls while trickling water threads its way through moss covered boulders. Continue to the narrowest part of the canyon, Wall Street, where the sheer cliff faces soar straight above your head for hundreds of feet. A transfer will deliver us to the scenic Inn at Entrada, and later we’ll delight in a wonderful dinner at one of the best restaurants in St. George.
