Full description

Experience the sunset from atop a cliff in Eastern Zion on this guided off-road Jeep tour. Witness incredible sweeping views of Zion National Park's remote backcountry and stop at special viewpoints, free from crowds and interruptions. 

Depart just before sunset. After a short drive on the highway, officially begin your off-road adventure. Enjoy the ride as your guide maneuvers the rugged trail, ending at a western-facing viewpoint just in time to watch the sun descend behind the cliffs of Zion.

From this breathtaking location, see views of the West Temple, Parunuweap Canyon, Elephant Gap, and other major Zion landmarks. Take in the scenery and capture the experience with plenty of photos before hopping back on the Jeep again. 

After another exciting Jeep ride and stop at a viewpoint, return to the starting point of the tour at Thunderbird Lodge.

So much fun! We took our three kids (5, 7, 11) and they had a blast. The Jeep is super fun and feels like an amusement ride to them. I got to enjoy the beautiful sunset and a different look at Zion. My husband who has a little fear of heights may not have known what he was getting into, but he still said he had a great time. Definitely recommend and would definitely do again!

Brian was a great guide. He was engaging, easygoing, and informative. He deserves a raise. Some extras such as a glass of wine or champagne would have been nice. Otherwise, it’s just a ride to see the sunset. Add something to the experience other than chips and bottled water.
