Join this southwest national parks birding tour for a chance to renew your spirits in the mountains and beautiful red rock canyons of Utah and Arizona. Discover a beautiful and intriguing terrain, rich in scenic and geological wonders. Plants and animals of the region are fascinating as well. Nature and birding are the themes of our journey as we enjoy great walks, scenic drives, and time to explore. In the evenings, relax in the ambience of rustic lodges at the parks or in charming accommodations in nearby towns.

The Grand Canyon, Bryce, and Zion are all internationally renowned national parks. In addition to these gems, we also visit two smaller parks we consider no less spectacular, Capitol Reef and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. In between we explore a few treasured, but lesser-known sites like Antelope Canyon and take an all-day boat excursion on Lake Powell to Rainbow Bridge. Navajos called this sacred site the "rainbow of stone" and it truly is one of the wonders of the world.
