MOAB MULTI-SPORT ADVENTURE

Adventure through the epic scenery of Southern Utah on this Mighty-Five Adventure through five of the nation’s best National Parks. A different active adventure awaits guests each day as they journey from park to park via a luxury coach. Starting with Zion National Park, known for its extraordinary hikes and scenery, guests will immediately feel transported to a faraway land. Continuing on, they will visit Bryce Canyon National Park, Grand Staircase Escalante-National Monument, Capitol Reef National Park, Arches National Park, and Canyonlands National Park. Each day varies and offers some of the most breathtaking photo opportunities on Earth. An active adventure, guests will hike between 3 and 10 miles at varying destinations, truly giving them a chance to experience the best that Southern Utah has to offer. Guests will stay in luxurious accommodations each evening, enjoying fine-dining for dinners, and lunches on-the-go for the duration. Hiking, river rafting, exploring slot canyons, and viewing Indian art will appeal to a wide range of guests. Prior to our arrival in Moab, we will make an “off the beaten path” stop in the San Rafael Swell, culminating in an opportunity to visit Goblin Valley State Park. The last stop will offer guests the opportunity to view the World’s Largest Art Gallery in Nine Mile Canyon. Featuring the famed ‘Hunter Panel,’ guests will have one final viewing of ancient art. Overall fitness is important, though no previous experience is necessary.
