Utah is a place where cities, mountains, rivers and cultures converge. With five national parks, 44 state parks, six national forests, seven national monuments, 14 ski areas, deserts and mountains, Utah’s scenic and recreational opportunities are unlimited. From the red rocks of southern Utah’s Mighty Five ® national parks, to the Greatest Snow on Earth®, Utah is jam-packed with jaw-dropping landscapes and world class outdoor adventures that are just waiting to be explored.
Each national park boasts unique features and some of the most breath-taking landscapes you will see. Arches National Park is home to over 2,000 naturally formed sandstone arches, towers, fins, gargoyles and balanced rocks! Witness the rugged terrain of deep canyons and towering mesas as far as the eye can see in Canyonlands National Park. Experience red desert landscapes with sweeping vistas and towering cliffs in the expansive Capitol Reef National Park. The iconic hoodoos of Bryce Canyon National Park are known worldwide, so take a walk through the impressive spires of rock and watch the golden colours change throughout from sun rise to sun set. Follow the Virgin River throughout Zion National Park’s canyon, the luscious greenery contrasting the orange cliffs. Don’t miss your chance to hike The Narrows or Angel’s Landing for an unforgettable experience!
Utah’s night skies must be seen to be believed. With the highest concentration of designated International Dark Sky places in the world, you’ll have no problem catching incredible views of the moon, constellations, planets and even the Milky Way!
Film enthusiasts will be in their element as they delve into Utah’s movie heritage. Having shot five films in the area, John Wayne named the towering mesas of Monument Valley as ‘the place where God put the West’. Tom Hanks as Forrest Gump famously ended his cross country run here, while Thelma and Louise took their final leap at Dead Horse Point State Park, and in Arches National Park a young Indiana Jones discovered the Cross of Cortez in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
Getting to Utah couldn’t be easier with the direct flights between London Heathrow and Salt Lake City in the summer months. The south west of Utah is also only 90 minutes drive from Las Vegas. Once in Utah, getting about is straight forward. You’ll just want to hit the road, explore and savour the fresh air and blue skies around you!
