A Natural Adventure Close To Las Vegas
When we talk about Las Vegas, our first thoughts always go around entertainment, casinos and lights everywhere. If you want to combine the well-known Vegas experience with a magnificent outdoor experience, think about visiting Zion National Park in a tour from Las Vegas.
Zion National Park is 3-hour drive from Las Vegas McCarran International Airport and is the closest main airport. Forget about driving and reserve a private ride with Elife. By booking your ride in advance, you can choose the vehicle that suits your needs depending on how many people and bags are traveling.
Located near Springdale in southern Utah, about 170 miles northeast from Las Vegas, Zion may be small compared to other American parks, but its astounding cream, red and pink sandstone cliffs, Native American heritage and the magnificent views of Zion Canyon make of this destination a big option for the adventure lovers.
What Zion Park offer to its visitors?

Don’t forget to visit Zion’s greatest locations such as Checkerboard Mesa, Weeping Rock and Lower Emerald pools. Get your hiking gear ready, and spend a great day exploring Zion’s unique landscapes along Virgin River Gorge.
A slot canyon like Zion is a great alternative for climbing lovers, and you’ll see many of them on the sheer walls above while you visit the park. Whether you take your own gear or wanting to rent it, you will find options both in the park and in Springdale.
Spend a night under the stars and red cliffs. Zion offers 3 camping sites. Select Watchman Campground or South Campground if you want to share the space with other campers while doing birdwatching and knowing local wildlife. There’s a third smaller and more isolated place called Lava Point Campground, located in Kolob Terrace, an hour away from the Canyon area.
