Day: 3 Williams – Grand Canyon Railway – Grand Canyon National Park
This morning, watch out for the infamous Cataract Creek Gang, as lowly a group of varmints that ever rode the range. Then, climb aboard the historic Grand Canyon Railway; pass through majestic Ponderosa Pines, the high desert and the Kaibab National Forest while hearing tall tales and folklore about the area. Keep your eyes open for wildlife, as it's not uncommon to spot elk, mule deer and pronghorn antelope sauntering through this wild, woolly region. Nothing can prepare you for the Grand Canyon, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. With a Local Specialist learn how the Grand Canyon was created and examine rock samples from the colourful sedimentary layers formed as the sea washed in again and again. Join your Travel Director for an unforgettable walk along the rim.Full Breakfast
Day: 4 Grand Canyon National Park – Monument Valley – Lake Powell (2 Nights)
Ferde Grofe was so stunned by the spectacular beauty of the sunrise over the Grand Canyon that he composed his Grand Canyon Suite in 1931. But all you have to do is watch and maybe whistle in amazement as the skies glow and brighten with the coming day. Drive along Desert View Drive, featuring jaw-dropping views of the Grand Canyon, before entering Navajo Country. Here you can poke around the historic Cameron Trading Post and hunt for a great piece of Southwest Native American art. See why Monument Valley is a favourite location for movie directors. As you're bouncing along the valley floor in an open-air vehicle, you can just imagine John Wayne leading the U.S. Cavalry on a ride along the magnificent mesas. Wrap up your exciting day at a lakeside resort tucked into the red rock at amazing Lake Powell. Kick off your boots and have some fun at a poolside pizza dinner.Full Breakfast, Dinner
Day: 5 Lake Powell Free Time

Or maybe dive in to some of the many aquatic activities at Lake Powell Marina-the choice is yours.Full Breakfast
Day: 6 Lake Powell – Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks (2 Nights)
You'll be awestruck by the towering cliffs and massive canyon walls of Zion Canyon. Riding the park's shuttle, marvel at how the Virgin River cut through the sandstone to create one of Mother Nature's most stupendous wonders. If you enjoy hiking, there's an easy trek to the Emerald Pools, where splendid views and waterfalls will make the family happier than a crowd of cowpokes at chow time. Leaving Zion, drive along the Mount Carmel Highway and watch out for more spectacular formations like the Great Arch of Zion and the distinctive Checkerboard Mesa. Arrive at magical Bryce Canyon for the last two nights of your Western adventure.Full Breakfast
Day: 7 Bryce Canyon National Park Sightseeing and Free Time
Exploring Bryce Canyon is like entering a weird and eerie world, with sandstone spires called hoodoos creating a landscape that is a playground for the imagination. Explore the rim of a great amphitheatre, stopping at various lookouts to snap pictures of fairytale castles, cathedrals, meandering trails and secret hideaways, all carved out of stone by Mother Nature. This afternoon you're free to blaze your own trail. Later, put on your cowboy boots and Stetsons for a Western Farewell Dinner filled with good food and good fun.Full Breakfast, Farewell Dinner
