Itinerary

DAY 1: SALT LAKE CITY ARRIVAL

Arrive in Salt Lake City and transfer independently to your hotel where you will meet your Tour Director in the evening.

Salt Lake City is a beautiful, vibrant city that offers unparalleled access to remarkable history and warm hospitality. If time permits, this afternoon enjoy views of the State Capitol building and visit downtown's famed Temple Square, home to the 6-spired Salt Lake Temple and domed Tabernacle of the world-famous Mormon Tabernacle Choir. This evening we recommend dining at The Roof Restaurant (optional). The Roof offers an extravagant buffet and inspiring views of the Salt Lake Valley and Temple Square.

Accommodation at the Hampton Inn Salt Lake City Downtown, Salt Lake City, or similar

DAY 2: SALT LAKE CITY > CANYONLANDS N.P. > MOAB

Heading south this morning, you'll pass through Provo, home to Brigham Young University, en route to Canyonlands National Park. Today you will see a wilderness of countless canyons & fantastically formed buttes carved by the Colorado River & its tributaries. Rivers divide the park into four districts: the Island in the Sky, the Needles, the Maze & the Rivers themselves. We will visit some of the most scenic spots on the Island in the Sky mesa that rests on sheer sandstone cliffs over 1,000 feet above the surrounding terrain. Continue on to Moab for your stay tonight.

Accommodation at the Hotel Moab Downtown, Moab, or similar

DAY 3: MOAB > ARCHES N.P. > MOAB

Today we visit Arches National Park, one of Utah's Mighty 5. Once in the park, you'll discover a landscape of contrasting colors, landforms and textures unlike any other in the world. With over 2,000 natural stone arches, in addition to hundreds of soaring pinnacles and giant balanced rocks, this red rock wonderland will amaze you with its formations and inspire you with its most unique scenery. Return to hotel in the late afternoon.

Accommodation at the Hotel Moab Downtown, Moab, or similar

DAY 4: MOAB > CANYON DE CHELLY > CHINLE

Crossing into Arizona where traces of rich history, miles of cacti in every size, shape, and style, and natural wonders mark the awesome terrain, you'll make your way to Chinle, the gateway to Canyon de Chelly National Monument. Located entirely on Navajo tribal lands and known for its steep canyon walls dotted with hundreds of ancient pueblo ruins, Canyon de Chelly reflects one of the longest continuously inhabited landscapes in North America. Here, distinctive architecture, artifacts, and picturesque vistas of rocky outcroppings are all remarkably preserved, providing a peek into the lives of the canyon's earliest inhabitants.

Accommodation at the Holiday Inn Canyon De Chelly, Chinle, or similar

DAY 5: CHINLE > GALLUP > ALBUQUERQUE

Leaving Chinle, today's journey takes you through the Navajo Reservation and dramatic lands of western New Mexico to Gallup. Having barely changed since Route 66's heyday, Gallup serves up a slice of Americana rarely seen nowadays along with one of the best strips of neon signs you'll see anywhere on the old route. Continue to the heart of New Mexico, Albuquerque. A visit to historic Old Town offers a unique look into New Mexico's Spanish past. Stroll the Plaza, dine at one of the many restaurants, shop for unique gifts from the Southwest in one of the stores or galleries, or simply relax on a quiet hidden patio.

Accommodation at the Best Western Plus Rio Grande Inn, Albuquerque, or similar

DAY 6: ALBUQUERQUE > SANTA FE

This morning, venture onto the Turquoise Trail, the National Scenic Byway linking Albuquerque and Santa Fe. Named for the rich turquoise deposits found throughout the area, and offering views of the Sandia Mountains and Cibola National Forest, this byway carves through wild rock outcroppings and a couple of old mining towns. Founded on the ruins of an abandoned Indian village, Santa Fe, the nation's oldest capital city, is nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and steeped in history.

Set against a backdrop of landscape that inspired its own Georgia O'Keeffe's startlingly colorful paintings, this is a paradise for history buffs and cultural explorers. Ample leisure time this afternoon provides the perfect opportunity to explore world-renowned art galleries, and celebrated landmarks, or shop for authentic creations you just won't find anywhere else.

Accommodation at the Ramada by Wyndham Santa Fe, Sante Fe, or similar

DAY 7: SANTA FE > TAOS > GARDEN OF THE GODS > COLORADO SPRINGS

Traveling from Santa Fe to Taos you'll follow alongside the Rio Grande as it winds its way through a narrow canyon and red-rock cliffs before rising to a spectacular view of the river gorge and rich landscape of Taos valley. In Taos, visit the only living Native American community designated both a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and a National Historic Landmark, Taos Pueblo, whose multi-story adobe buildings have been continuously inhabited for over 1,000 years.

Heading north from Taos into Colorado, you'll discover the scenic beauty and favorable climate that has lured visitors to Colorado Springs for years. Stop at Garden of the Gods where you'll delight in one of the most photographed landscapes in the state. Imagine dramatic views of the foothills and 300-foot towering red sandstone rock formations set against a backdrop of snowcapped Pikes Peak and brilliant blue skies.

Accommodation at the Ramada by Hyatt Place Colorado Springs, Colorado Springs, or similar
