For almost unlimited canyon landscapes and some of the most amazing scenery in the country, you’ll find Utah has it all! With five national parks, Utah is second only to Alaska and California, and each one is as impressive as the last! This epic trip will take you to Utah’s “Mighty 5” National Parks (Zion, Bryce, Capitol Reef, Arches and Canyonlands) and a bonus trip through the Grand Canyon. Erosion carved arches on sandstone, deep canyons, ancient rock art, and the incredible Colorado River and towering arches are some of the highlights. Spend your days hiking, rafting, four wheeling, horseback riding, canyoneering, mountain biking, or simply soaking in the scenery.
