Journey to Canyon Country

Where ancient native people and pioneers walked in the shadow of majestic sandstone cliffs that soar into brilliant blue skies

Nature has endowed America with stunning landscapes preserved in her great national parks. The vistas, backdrops and spectacular countryside provide unique natural scenery and there are few more striking sights than the Canyonlands. Combining the best of the ‘Big Country’ we explore the Bryce area and the National Parks of Zion, The Grand Canyon, Canyonlands and Arches. Additionally Monument Valley, the Sonaran Desert and Antelope Canyon, home to the native Indians of America where the cultural influence and artistic traditions of the Navajo are evident.

Despite what you have read or how many photos you have seen, nothing quite prepares you for the spectacle that is Canyon Country, with its unique natural scenery, it holds the most impressive and astounding landscapes.
