Day 1

Your first day takes you to Big Rock Candy Mountain, where you will set up your camp, wash up and have lunch before beginning your adventure. The Sevier River flows through scenic Marysvale valley, surrounded by mountain peaks rising up to 12,189 feet. It then enters Marysvale Canyon and begins a drop of 60 feet per mile. The steep canyon walls present a scenic backdrop with formations and sheer cliffs rising 500 feet above the rivers course.

You will be an integral part of a team navigating your raft through these exciting rapids. Depending on water conditions and runoff levels, you can choose between a raft or a kayak, but be prepared to get wet. Back at camp we will enjoy a hard-earned dinner by the campfire before turning in for the night.

Day 2

Rise early to enjoy a hike along the river where the pine trees give spectacular scenery around every turn.

After a hearty breakfast, you'll travel to Bryce Canyon National Park, where erosion has shaped colorful sandstone into thousands of spires, fins, pinnacles, and mazes. These formations are collectively called "hoodoos". The Navajo or Bristlecone Loop and Queens Garden trails are just a few of the great hiking options available. Our accommodations for this evening are located just outside of Zion National Park at the beatiful Coral Pink Sand Dunes. The only sand dune on the Colorado Plateau, its colors change and glow in the sunsets. This area is a photographer's paradise.

Day 3

The third day of this adventure takes you to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Here you can hike along the rim of the Grand Canyon where spectacular views of this tremendous wonder of the world abound. Visit the historic lodge and look out it’s giant windows to the canyon below, or enjoy a Ranger talk by the stone fireplace. If you have time, take a horseback ride into the canyon on one of the scenic trails. In the evening you will get the chance to experience the Coral Pink Sand Dunes by moonlight. Night hikes are magical... try it barefoot and let your toes sink into the pink sand. Dinner will be served and enjoyed around the campfire as we enjoy the night sky.

Day 4

Your final day starts early as we head to Zion National Park. Zion grabs your focus with its sheer sandstone walls and dramatic cliffs. After a quick stop at the Visitor's Center you will have the opportunity to hike the Narrows (weather permitting), summit Angel's Landing or relax by the Virgin River. Horseback riding is available while in Zion. For those wanting a break from hiking, the free shuttle to Springdale offers restaurants and shopping with local artists flair. After a good day of hiking, we will say goodbye to the canyons and return to Las Vegas.
