Zion Ranch Stay

Trip Code: SLKZ

Why we love it

Go hiking in Zion National Park enjoying views of the massive canyon walls and red sandstone cliffs., Take a Navajo guided tour of Monument Valley, where you’ll have the chance to learn more about their rich culture and history in the area, before sitting down to a traditional homecooked, family-style Navajo lunch., Enjoy a stroll in Bryce National Park along the canyon rim to marvel at the unique sandstone spires (known as hoodoos) that rise dramatically from the natural amphitheatre., Marvel at the unique curves and colours of Peek-a-Boo, a remarkable slot canyon filled with arches and corkscrewing formations (and an awesome spot for photos!)., Travel in a private, air-conditioned vehicle each day before heading back to your ranch accommodation each night.

Is this trip right for me?

The trip involves a lot of walking through Zion National Park, so be prepared with hiking shoes, a water bottle and day pack.

Lunches will be simple picnic style so perhaps bring some of your own snacks if you think you’ll get hungry between meals.

We will be travelling to the desert, which means it is often very warm during the day but cold at night, so make sure you pack the appropriate clothing for all weather.

What to bring/pack

LUGGAGE RESTRICTIONS:
All luggage is carried in trailers or inside the vehicle so please don't bring more than one medium-sized bag, backpack or suitcase (20kg maximum) per person. Your suitcase/rucksack may get some rough handling, so make sure it's a tough one. A small daypack and camera may also be carried inside the vehicle., As well as your underwear, toothbrush and other items you always need to pack for travel, below are some items that you specifically need for this trip.

ESSENTIAL:
- Reusable water bottle. We recommend at least a 1.5 litre capacity. The sale of bottled water contributes to an enormous environmental problem around the world. Tap water in the US and Canada is safe to drink and there are many places to fill up along the way, so please save plastic by bringing your own water bottle.
- Sun protection - hat, sunscreen, sunglasses
- Clothing you can layer. You may encounter a wide variety of temperatures en route due to altitude and unforeseen weather conditions - so be prepared! Make sure to pack a warm fleece and a waterproof jacket. We suggest you check the expected temperatures en route and bring clothing that you can layer.
- Closed-in shoes. If you are planning on doing any hiking during your trip we highly recommend that you take a pair of comfortable, closed-in walking shoes. Closed-in shoes will help to protect your feet from cuts and scratches when walking through bush/grass-lands, and will also act as a barrier protection in rare cases against bites or stings from dangerous animals in this environment.

RECOMMENDED:
- Power adaptor
- Insect repellent
- Spare camera battery. You should have access to electricity to charge your battery most nights, but it is always a good idea to carry a spare.
- Personal medical kit. Your guide will carry a large kit but we recommend you carry items such as mild pain killers, electrolytes, anti-diarrhoeal, antibacterial gel, wet wipes, bandaids/plasters etc.

OPTIONAL:
- Travel pillow if you like to sleep during long drives
- Reusable coffee cup such as a travel mug or KeepCup if you are a coffee drinker. Not only is it much better for the environment, but many places in the US and Canada also give a discount for bringing your own cup.
- Ear plugs to guard against a snoring room-mate
- A good book, a journal or an Ipod for the long drives.
- Swimwear
- Head torch, https://www.intrepidtravel.com/packing-list

Accommodations

The style of accommodation indicated in the day-to-day itinerary is a guideline only and may change. On some occasions, alternative arrangements may need to be made due to the lack of availability of rooms in our preferred accommodation. In these cases, we will use a similar standard of accommodation.

Throughout the trip, we request that our properties prepare rooms in time for our arrival, especially if we're arriving prior to normal check-in time. However, this isn't always possible which means we won't be able to check-in immediately on arrival at some hotels. Instead, we can store our luggage and explore our new destination or on some trips, have use of shared day rooms until all rooms are available.

Our 4,000 acre ranch resort borders the eastern boundary of Zion National Park. On site you will find a restaurants and a swimming pool. All our rustic cabins are equipped with a private bedroom, full bathroom, wet bar with coffee maker and a front porch to sit and watch the sunrise from.
