ITINERARY + ROUTE


Day 1: LAS VEGAS ARRIVAL AND TRANSFER TO ZION NATIONAL PARK
Making our way deep into Utah on this three-hour drive to Zion National Park, we will take in the incredible scenery of the American Southwest. After our first lunch in Springdale, we head to the trailhead for the Watchman Trail to stretch our legs on an introductory hike in the park. This out-and-back trail offers a moderate hike with fantastic views of some of the most famous features in the park including West Temple and Towers of the Virgin. Following our hike, we will spend a little time at the Zion Canyon Visitor Center which boasts an innovative Earth-friendly design. Our first afternoon in the park will leave you breathless and looking forward to our next hiking challenge.

DRIVING: 2-3 hours | HIKING: 3 Miles | KOSHER MEALS: Lunch & Dinner included | OVERNIGHT: La Quinta Inn and Suites Springdale
 

Day 2: HIKE ANGELS LANDING 
Our hike begins on the canyon floor with a steady climb up a wide path. Entering Refrigerator Canyon, we get a slight chance to cool off before we start the 21 switchbacks of Walters Wiggles. At Scouts Lookout, we get our first view of the last thrilling 500' of our climb. Here the trail narrows with drop-offs on either side. We’re assisted by chains embedded in the rock as we scramble up sandstone steps. Our final push brings us to the top with amazing views of Zion laid out below and beyond, making this challenging hike worth all the effort. After our hike, a refreshing swim in the Virgin River caps an unforgettable day!

DRIVING: Minimal | HIKING: 7 miles | KOSHER MEALS: All included | OVERNIGHT: La Quinta Inn and Suites Springdale
 

DAY 3: HIKE THE NARROWS
The Narrows—a deep gash in the earth carved by the Virgin River. The first part of our hike walks along the Riverside Trail but after about a mile our trail is the Virgin River. Walking in water, we travel upstream along the steep, colorful sandstone walls on a route often described as one of the best hikes in the U.S. We will then make our way back to Las Vegas for our celebratory dinner. 

DRIVING: 3 Hour Transfer | HIKING: 4 miles | KOSHER MEALS: All included | OVERNIGHT: On own
