Territories Desert Southwest Zion And Beyond : Journey Highlights





Travel under the regular tourist radar to explore the less-traveled trails, vistas, and cultural sites of southern Utah’s great parklands. Each of these parks is vastly different, and equally special. Experience the spring-fed creeks, the dry and deep canyons, the hoodoos, spires, arches, and towers of red, orange, brown, pink, and white. Listen for the haunting trill of the canyon wren, discover the delicate plant life, and at the end of the day, take a dip in a cool pool and delight your taste buds with some fresh Southwest cuisine.

  • National Parklands: This journey takes in three of the Southwest's most stunning national parklands.
  • Hiking: Follow trails through twisting slickrock canyons, under graceful arches, and along colorful cliffs and sun-dappled streams. Every day your boots hit a new trail and your sense of desert ecology deepens.
  • Time travel: Look back over millions of years of geology.
  • Unique inns: Gracious hosts welcome you to stunningly located desert accommodations.

“If you’ve always wanted to explore southern Utah’s canyons and trails, this is your trip. We think you’ll be surprised at the diversity of the landscape, and thrilled by the beauty of the experience.” —Barbara Mall, Off the Beaten Travel Advisor
