A comprehensive exploration of the American West visits awesome natural wonders and stays at rustic lodges amid dazzling panoramas that no camera could ever quite capture.
In the morning, visit Canyonlands National Park for a drive onto the 'Island in the Sky', a mesa resting 1,000 feet (305 m) above the surrounding countryside, offering spectacular views over the stark, dramatic sandstone formations. Then it's on to Arches National Park, housing the greatest concentration of natural arches in the world. Back at the lodge, the afternoon is at leisure. In the evening, perhaps choose to join an exciting sunset jet boat ride on the mighty Colorado River.
