7-Nights Desert Oasis: Zion, Death Valley & Palm Springs - Land Journey
Desert Oasis: Zion, Death Valley & Palm Springs
Deserts are where Nature paints its big-canvas art, its most astonishing and colorful landscapes and wildest sculptures, flaming sunsets and deepest, starriest night skies...boundless places where wind and water are free to play and create works that inspire awe, wonder and surprise... where Native Americans and Biblical-minded pioneers alike felt something grand and sacred in its empty spaces...
... and our eight-day national park road trip will take you to some of the places where that desert spirit lives largest, Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada, Zion National Park in Utah, Death Valley National Park, and Joshua Tree National Park in California, some less well-known than others, but each with a distinct character and vibe you can feel up close on guided hikes and excursions and inside-the-park accommodations. And just so you don't feel too overwhelmed by natural wonders, we've bookended the tour with a healthy dose of civilization: overnight stays in luxury hotels in Las Vegas and Palm Springs.

Zion National Park
Zion is an ancient Hebrew word meaning a place of refuge or sanctuary. Protected within the park's 229 square miles is a dramatic landscape of sculptured canyons and soaring cliffs. Zion is located at the junction of the Colorado Plateau, Great Basin and Mojave Desert provinces. This unique geography and the variety of life zones within the park make Zion significant as a place of unusual plant and animal diversity.
Death Valley National Park
Death Valley National Park is a park of extremes. It is a below-sea-level desert basin and the lowest spot in North America which reaches record summer heats, making it the hottest and driest spot as well. Despite its harshness, it is also home to Devils Hole, an incredibly deep geothermally heated water-filled cave that is the lone habitat of a rare fish. A great diversity of life can be viewed in Death Valley, despite its name, and it is a worthwhile place to visit for nature lovers. Over 1,000 species of plants can be found in Death Valley, and more than 50 are endemics, found nowhere else in the world. Visitors especially enjoy spring in Death Valley after rare rainstorms, which bring vast fields of wildflowers. In winter, towering peaks are dusted with winter snow. Death Valley is a popular location for camping, hiking, stargazing, four-wheel driving and mountain biking, when the temperatures are less extreme.
