Zion National Park & Bryce Canyon
Start with drive through Zion National Park en route to the first hike of the week: a three-mile roundtrip hike showing off all the vastness of Zion and beyond. This is a beautiful vantage point that will surely make everyone excited for the week ahead.
The next day treats you to a choice between two spectacular morning hikes within Zion. You’ll have the opportunity to hike either part of the Emerald Pools or a portion of Angel’s Landing. Afterward, head to Zion Narrows, a deep slot canyon, where you will be wading portions of the Virgin River to reach wild hanging gardens and walk among the arcing walls. The following day, wake early for a hike to see the sunrise.
Harness up and join your friends and professional guides for the heart-pumping thrill of canyoneering! Whether you’ve never tried it before or you’re an “old hand,” this activity is suitable for everyone. Feed out the ropes as you descend step by step along steep red sandstone walls to land safely far down below. It might seem scary before you step out over the cliff, but by the time you reach the canyon floor, canyoneering might be your favorite sport!
Try out a new form of adventure today with a thrilling Can-Am ride. These three-wheeled vehicles are a cross between a motorcycle and an ATV and will be sure to get the adrenaline pumping!
Relax and get ready for an extra dose of charm as a local female chef from Orderville will come to us to cook dinner. You will be able to chat with her about the meal, get tips and tricks for delicious food preparation and hear more about her story and how she ended up living in Orderville.
Your week concludes with a spectacular farewell dinner to match a spectacular week. Wish each other a bon voyage, appreciating the camaraderie, the moxie, and the shared laughs that will be recounted and remembered often in the years to come.
