This tour departs from the Thunderbird Lodge just before sunset. Be sure you arrive on time!

After a short drive on the highway, the off-road adventure begins! This tour travels to a similar destination as the Red Canyon Jeep Tour, with incredible sweeping views of Zion National Park’s remote backcountry.

The 4×4 Jeep ride will never disappoint as your skilled guide maneuvers the trail. After this scenic drive through the red rock desert, the trail ends at a western facing viewpoint just in time to watch the sun descend behind the cliffs of Zion National Park.

From this breathtaking location, views of the West Temple, Parunuweap Canyon, Elephant Gap, and other major Zion landmarks are visible. Just below this spot is the route the first explorers originally traveled while discovering the area!

This is deep in the backcountry of Zion, and these views are shared only with your party. Free from crowds and interruption.

After taking in the scenery and capturing the experience with plenty of photos, the tour continues again in the Jeep. After an exciting Jeep ride and another stop at a viewpoint, the tour returns to the Thunderbird Lodge.

This experience is sure to be the highlight of your trip!
