September 27th-29th, Friday-Sunday
$479 (Double Occupancy)
Day One: We’ll leave the Valley with a stop for coffee and goodies, as we head north for lunch on self at beautiful and historic Cameron Trading Post. After lunch it’s back on the bus and we’ll continue north to our turnoff at Bitter Springs, where the ride really gets interesting. We’ll stop for a photo-op at Navajo Bridge, now a pedestrian walkway, offering incredible views of the Colorado River, then it’s off to Cliff Dwellers Lodge. After checking in, we’ll gather for our own Happy Hour, included. Later we’ll enjoy a free evening and dinner on self at the Cliff Dwellers Restaurant, offering a view of the Vermilion Cliffs, a crackling fire and a really diverse menu.
Day Two: We’ll enjoy breakfast on self, at the hotel, and then it’s back on the bus. We’ll drive out of the dramatic Vermilion Cliffs, and into the lovely sandstone ledges and juniper pines of the Coconino National Forest. More breathtaking and remote than the South Rim, autumn at the North Rim shimmers with golden aspen. Fall color should be at its peak, while the weather is still pleasant, and the crowds have fallen away—making this the Ultimate Fall Leaves Driving Tour! Our journey will become more dramatic with every mile, as we make our way towards the North Rim. With overlooks reaching 9,000 feet, we’ll visit the Rim’s most spectacular viewpoints. Watch for bison herds, mule deer, wild turkeys, and Kaibab squirrels. We’ll enjoy a wonderful lunch on self, at the Grand Canyon Lodge patio—offering ring side seating for all this great scenery. Late that afternoon, we’ll head back to the Lodge for our own Happy Hour, and then dinner on self at the Lodge restaurant.
Day Three: We’ll enjoy breakfast on self, at the hotel, then it’s bags out and we’ll head for home, with a stop for lunch on self and plenty of great sightseeing along the way. Don’t miss out on this remarkable Kindred Tours annual trek!
