Las Vegas – Zion National Park (147 miles)

This morning you will pick up your motorhome from the Las Vegas depot, just a 15 minute taxi ride away.

The recommended campsite is the Zion River Resort, ideally located for easy access to one of America’s most beautiful National Parks. And we recommend you stay here for at least two nights.

There are lots of opportunities to admire the Grand Canyon from different vantage points – watch the sunrise or sunset from the rim or take a helicopter ride. If you’ve already seen the Grand Canyon, then this part of the itinerary can easily be excluded, as you can cut straight across to Lake Powell.

Day 5 & 6

Grand Canyon – Lake Powell (145 miles)

Days 10 - 11

Mesa Verde – Moab (125 miles)

This morning set off for Moab, pausing at Hole N’The Rock on the way – a historic 5,000 square foot home carved out of rock in Canyonlands Country.
