Tour Information

The Best of the Canyonlands tour begins in Denver and ends in Las Vegas.

Taking you inside America's impressive canyon country, we explore the incredible natural structures of Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, Mesa Verde and the Grand Canyon. You'll enjoy Insider moments like: visiting 'John Wayne's Cabin' at Goulding's Lodge, which was actually Mike Goulding's potato cellar and once used to store fruits and vegetables. Inside the cabin, you'll find a mockup of the Hollywood set and a vast array of still shots from 'She Wore a Yellow Ribbon', filmed here in 1949 by director John Ford.

Head toward the mountains this morning as you ascend into the foothills of the Rockies and cross the Continental Divide on your way to the resort destination of Vail. Founded in 1966 at the base of the largest ski mountain in the United States, this pretty alpine village has an old-world feel that attracts outdoor enthusiasts.Then it's on to Moab where, in the late 1940s, the legendary John Ford discovered the area's rugged beauty and filmed the first of many movies here. Tonight is yours - perhaps opt for taking in the sunset over the red cliffs. If you're in the mood for more excitement, try a jet boat ride along the mighty Colorado River with a dinner.

Crossing back into Colorado, skirt the edge of the San Juan National Forest before arriving at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Mesa Verde National Park. Between 600 and 1300 A.D., the Ancestral Puebloan people carved houses and entire communities out of the sandstone along the canyon walls.
