    Experience the real America as the pioneers found it - unspoilt, untamed and utterly unforgettable. From awe-inspiring canyons to majestic mountains, this isn’t just the great outdoors, it’s arguably the greatest landscape on earth. Cast yourself in your own Western with a drive through the mesmerising sandstone formations of Monument Valley. Travel through the canyons of Zion National Park, gaze in wonder at the pinnacles of Bryce Canyon National Park and take to the water in the 1.2 million acres that make up Glen Canyon Recreational Park. With our know-how and pick of the best hotels, you’ll enjoy the holiday of a lifetime.

    With five national parks, 43 state parks, seven national monuments, two national recreation areas and 'The Greatest Snow on Earth', Utah is one big playground for those seeking year-round outdoor adventure.

    The Mighty 5

    Some of Utah's most awe-inspiring scenery is found in The Mighty 5 - the state's five national parks of Capitol Reef, Zion, Bryce Canyon, Arches and Canyonlands.

    Take a scenic drive through Capitol Reef. Hike through Canylondlands' impressive rock formations. View the mountains and waterfalls of Zion. Tour natural bowls and red rock hoodoos of Bryce Canyon. Watch the sun rising over the orange sandstone shapes in Arches.  

    With patchwork of majestic mountains, rugged red rock canyons, parched deserts, lush forests and dramatic gorges, carved out of the landscape by the river, The Mighty 5 offer a world of outdoor recreational opportunities.

    Hiking

    From family friendly trails to more challenging climbs, Utah is made for hiking. The national parks offer countless trails through the region's iconic red rock landscape. Explore Canyonlands on foot, with hikes to Mesa Arch a highlight.

    Biking

    The slickrock trails of Moab are famous for their challenging climbs and descents. Those travelling to Bryce Canyon and Zion should plan to visit nearby Thunder Mountain and Gooseberry Meas. Head to Park City -  the only International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA) Certified Gold Level mountain biking city in America.

    Water Sports

    Famous for its scenic desert vistas, Utah ranks among the top ten US states in surface acres of boatable waters. Why not take a white water rafting trip through Cataract Canyon down the Colorado River?

      Kanab, Utah, is worth a stop as part of a tour around North Rim of Grand Canyon, Vermillion Cliffs and Pipe Springs National Monument. The quaint Main Street has dedications to the many film stars who have made movies in the area.

    • Top Tip 5

      No visit to Utah is complete without time spent in Bryce Canyon National Park. It's simply incredible – imagine a golden-hued forest of stone and you’re somewhere close.

    • Top Tip 6

      Rodeos are held most weekends during the summer. Soak up the atmosphere as you see the wranglers show off their lassoing and bull-riding skills and have a go at riding the bucking broncos.

    It is a fairly long drive today, but wonderfully scenic as you cross Cowboy Country - an area renowned for strapping on your hat and pulling on your boots and where nobody stands on ceremony. If you want to stretch your legs make a stop at Rye Patch State Recreation Area for a picnic beneath tall cottonwoods. If you’re feeling romantic, lock your love in Lovelock by fastening a lock on the never-ending chain at Lovers Lock Plaza, or simply admire the more than 1,000 locks that adorn the plaza. Reno, also known as ‘The Biggest Little City in the World’, was the original sin city where, at the beginning of the 20th Century, it gained national notoriety for being the city people came to for gambling, drinking and divorce. In recent years it has seen something of a cultural resurgence with shopping, galleries and restaurants. Enjoy your stay in Reno by visiting the world class spas, browsing the extensive selection of shops, trying out the largest outdoor climbing wall in the world, or visiting the National Automobile Museum which features some of the most famous cars from Bill Harrah’s collection. For a more active day, try the downtown white-water kayak course or if spectator sports are more your thing, stroll the Riverwalk area.

    Lake Tahoe

    It is a short drive to Lake Tahoe, so we suggest you take a longer route along interstate 580 to visit some of the regions popular attractions; Carson City - Nevada’s Capital, Virginia City - a beautiful old Mining Town and Genoa - Nevada’s first settlement. Carson City, the state capital, is only half an hour south of Reno. Highlights along Main Street include the capitol building, Nevada state museum and Nevada state railroad museum which offers diesel or steam train rides for visitors. Carson City also boasts nine golf courses; whilst nearby Carson valley is home to vast ranches, antique shops and Victoria homes. Tahoe Ridge Winery, one of Nevada’s four wineries, has a tasting room and a restaurant in Carson Valley – a perfect place to stop for some lunch and wine tasting. Once a vital mining settlement, Virginia City is a gem of the Old West. Spend time walking the plank boardwalks, browsing the shops and dimly lit saloons, venturing into an old mine (preserved to its original layout) and ride on the Historic V&T Railroad to experience real history. Genoa is Nevada’s first settlement and a quaint little town, with beautiful scenery and “Nevada’s Oldest Thirst Palour” – Genoa Bar and Saloon, which is a key experience. Since 1853 drinks have been served at this bar which has welcomed presidents, actors and famous musicians through the years. Once in stunning Lake Tahoe, you will find picture postcard scenery of sparkling crystal clear water reflecting snow clad mountains. Lake Tahoe is a classic American lakeside resort, with log cabins, tall pine trees, soft, yellow sand beaches and a wealth of activities and water sports to keep you entertained. The north shore is anchored by the town of incline village, which boasts two golf courses, a ski resort, and two lake front hotels. The town of Stateline is situated on the south shore and is known for its large scale casino resorts, Heavenly mountain resort and Edgewood Tahoe Golf course. From South Lake Tahoe, you can board the M.S. Dixie II or the Tahoe Queen and enjoy a relaxing cruise, taking in the magnificent views of the azure coloured lake and rugged mountains. During the summer, Tahoe is perfect for water and beach activities, hiking and bicycling, whilst the winter months turn Tahoe into a skiers’ paradise, with winter sports such as tobogganing and ice skating.

    Enjoy a morning trip to Castle Rock with spectacular views of Book Cliffs and Arches National Park – from the top of a mesa, enjoy views that extend out to Arches National Park, Colorado, and the La Salle Mountains. A lecture by a local Navajo connects you to the sacredness of the desert, to the ancient spiritual life that transcends today’s world. Depart for the little town of Moab, then on to Canyonlands National Park, whose countless canyons, mesas and buttes shadow the Colorado River and the Green River. These rivers divide the park into four districts – today you’ll explore the northern section, Island in the Sky, where among other formations you’ll see a famed pothole arch, Mesa Arch, overlooking Buck Canyon. There is no better way to experience Canyonlands than at sunset – and the setting sun, during a picnic dinner at Dead Horse Point overlooking the U-turn in the Colorado River, is nothing short of inspirational.
