The Colorado and Green Rivers divide Canyonlands into four districts – Islands in the Sky, The Needles, the Maze and the rivers themselves – each with its own distinct character. The easiest way to see the park is with a visit to the Island in the Sky district, only 32 miles (51.5 kilometres) from Moab.

Monument Valley

Monument Valley is one of the most majestic and most photographed places on earth. Over the years Monument Valley has been the setting for more Western movies than any other site in the USA. This great valley boasts sandstone masterpieces that tower at heights of 400 to 1,000 feet, framed by scenic clouds casting shadows that graciously roam the desert floor. The angle of the sun accents these graceful formations, providing scenery that is simply spellbinding. Your hotel is located beneath the towering sandstone cliffs allowing you to see the sunrise and sunset whilst there are few others around.

The Grand Canyon really does take your breath away with its awesome views. This 5 million year old canyon is a must see with its seemingly never-ending, intricate landscape. The powerful and inspiring vistas have overwhelmed the senses of the millions of people that have visited each year.
