Itinerary - Sand & Snow
Begin your day bright and early, as you are picked up from your hotel in one of our 15 passenger vans. Begin the
scenic drive to Sand Hollow State Park, while passing through the depths of the Virgin River Gorge.
A brief bathroom stop allows for snacks, muffins, coffee, and morning caffeine.
Upon arrival at Sand Hollow, you will help unload the kayaks (or SUPs), PFD's, paddles, and other gear. After a brief
talk about safety protocol and some basic paddling instruction, you will take to the water.
Explore the lake and paddle around the small coves, stopping for photos and possibly swimming. A healthy picnic lunch
can be enjoyed on the pink sand dunes or from the shade of a cottonwood tree.
After lunch, the short drive along the scenic byway above St. George brings you to Snow Canyon. Spend the afternoon
hiking amongst Utah juniper and yucca, while keeping an eye open for desert tortoise and peregrine falcons.
The area is a photographer's dream, with spring and fall being wildflower seasons. Explore the lava tubes, or enjoy watching
rock climbers scale the face of a towering cliff suspended from a single rope.
Once your adventure is complete, relax and enjoy the drive back to the Las Vegas Strip.
