Itinerary

Day 1 Denver

Arrive in Denver. Check into your hotel. Experience one of the City's Micro Brewery.

Day 2 Denver

Discover Denver. World-class attractions. Natural wonders. A thriving arts scene. Dozens of innovative and acclaimed restaurants. Nightlife options galore. The word is getting out - Denver's got it all.


Day 3 Denver—Aspen/Snowmass (202mi/325km)

Enjoy your drive from Denver to Aspen/Snowmass via Highway 92 - Independent Pass. The scenery at the pass and all along the 44 mile route is some of the most spectacular in all Colorado.

Day 4 Aspen/Snowmass

Aspen is known for its world-renowned skiing, but we’re loved as a year-round natural mountain escape. When the snow melts, our mountain town comes alive with a combination of outdoor adventure, Arts & Culture, restaurants and a way of life like nowhere else on Earth.

Day 5 Aspen/Snowmass - Arches - Moab (237mi/381km)

Today take the scenic drive from Aspen/Snowmass to Moab. On your way, don't forget to stop at Arches National Park. Arches National Park lies north of Moab in the state of Utah. Bordered by the Colorado River in the southeast, it’s known as the site of more than 2,000 natural sandstone arches, such as the massive, red-hued Delicate Arch in the east.

Day 6 Moab - Canyonlands National Park - Moab

Today, Canyonlands invites you to explore a wilderness of countless canyons and fantastically formed buttes carved by the Colorado River and its tributaries. Rivers divide the park into four districts: Island in the Sky, The Needles, The Maze, and the rivers themselves.

Day 7 Moab - Bryce Canyon National Park (250mi/402km)

This morning make your way to Bryce Canyon National Park.
If there is one thing Bryce Canyon is best-known for, however, it’s hoodoos. Bryce Canyon is full of these amazing pillars formed by erosion and a process called “frost wedging,” where water repeatedly freezes and melts.

Day 8 Bryce Canyon - Zion (73mi/118km)

Enjoy your short drive to Zion National Park. Zion National Park is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Zion National Park is the most popular of the five national parks found within the state of Utah. One reason for its popularity is the fact that you can easily get to the top or bottom of this national park by car.

Day 9 Zion National Park

Zion National Park holds a spectacular collection of hikes & natural wonders for you to enjoy. The east side of the Zion National Park holds some of the canyon’s best kept secrets.

Day 10 Zion - Page/Lake Powell (105mi/170km)

Enjoy your scenic drive from Zion to Page/Lake Powell.
Lake Powell is located in northern Arizona and stretches up into southern Utah. It's part of the Colorado River in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. With nearly 2,000 miles of shoreline, endless sunshine, warm water, perfect weather, and some of the most spectacular scenery in the west.
Don't forget to visit Antelope Canyon. This world-famous slot canyon is on the photographic “bucket list” of every traveler to Northern Arizona, and deservedly so. Its surrealistic colors and shapes must be seen to be believed.

Day 11: Page/Lake Powell - Grand Canyon South Rim (133mi/215km)

This morning drive from Page/Lake Powell to the Grand Canyon Village. Stop at the Horseshoe Bend Overlook just 5 miles South of Page, AZ. At Horseshoe Bend, as you stand on the edge of the canyon you can see the river and take incredible photos.

Day 12 Grand Canyon

Measuring approximately 277 river miles in length, up to 18 miles in width and a mile deep, this massive chasm in northern Arizona is truly a natural wonder. Set out for an adventure to one of the most epic place in the World!

Day 13 Grand Canyon - Sedona (114mi/184km)

Today, it is time to travel to Sedona. Also referred to as Red Rock Country, Sedona is now recognized as a favorite US Southwest destination. Drawn first by the incredible scenery, visitors look forward to the many activities and experiences they can have in Sedona.

Day 14 Sedona

Enjoy your day in Sedona. For outdoor fun, there's hiking or biking along beautiful, well marked trails, jeep and other scenic tours, and golf.

Day 15 Sedona - Albuquerque (350mi/560km)

Discover Petroglyph National Monument and Petrified Forest National Park on your way to Albuqueque.
Petrified Forest is best known for its ancient trees that have crystallized over 225 million years into rainbow colours.
Petroglyph National Monument protects one of the largest petroglyph sites in North America, featuring designs and symbols carved onto volcanic rocks by Native Americans and Spanish settlers 400 to 700 years ago.

Day 16 Albuquerque

At the heart of New Mexico beats the pulse of a vibrant city. In Albuquerque, diverse cultures, authentic art and dynamic traditions have helped shape the centuries-old story. No matter your interests, the city has countless opportunities for you to explore. Sample traditional New Mexican cuisine, experience world-class museums, stroll along Central Avenue under the vintage neon glow of Route 66, or soar high above the city in the hot air ballooning capital of the world.

Day 17 Albuquerque - Santa Fe (65mi/105km)

This morning drive to Santa Fe. Santa Fe, New Mexico is a magical, exuberant, colourful journey at any time of year. The legendary history and culture will fascinate and inspire you.

Day 18 Santa Fe - Taos - Colorado Springs (310mi/500km)

On our way to Colorado Springs, don't forget to stop and visit the World Heritage Site of Taos Pueblo.
Situated in the valley of a small tributary of the Rio Grande, this adobe settlement – consisting of dwellings and ceremonial buildings – represents the culture of the Pueblo Indians of Arizona and New Mexico.

Day 19 Colorado Springs

You’ll find no shortage of things to do in Colorado Springs, where the adventures range from mild to wild! Whether you’re looking for outdoor thrills, or educational and cultural activities.

Day 20 Colorado Springs - Denver (71mi/115km)

This is the end of this amazing Four States Self Drive. It is not time to return the car and make your way to Denver Airport for your return flight home.
