Canyonlands of the Southwest
From high mountain peaks to the depths of massive winding canyons, the wonders of the American Southwest and its magnificent beauty will simply amaze you.
Reflect upon the mystery and wonder of the spectacular rock formations that populate the canyons of the American west and see some of the most incredible natural wonders of the world. Visit the spectacular Grand Canyon, the unique rock formations of Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon, and then top it off with time in Las Vegas and the Nevada countryside exploring everything from alternative energy to atomic testing. From lofty overlooks encompassing thousands of square miles of spectacular canyon country, to trails that meander through cool alpine meadows, this tour has it all.
The sandstone country, home to many of the world's most awe-inspiring canyon environments, cut away deep into the layers of soft stone by water and time. The numerous natural bridges and arches are just a few of the spectacular landscapes that can be seen in this region of the world. This is a landscape that offers far more than meets the eye. It is an arid landscape comprised mostly of the sparse foliage that makes up the Great Basin region, but its sandstone features, from monoliths to canyons thousands of feet deep, beckon artists, photographers and wilderness enthusiasts from all over the world.
