Discover Tours

Situated in southwestern Utah, Zion National Park is a stunning showcase of geologic drama, featuring soaring cliffs, narrow canyons, and a tapestry of rich colors. Covering approximately 229 square miles, the park is best known for its red and pink sandstone cliffs, which stand in stark contrast to the clear blue sky. It's a haven for hikers, climbers, and outdoor enthusiasts looking for a sublime blend of beauty and adventure.

One of the park's most iconic hikes is Angel's Landing, a challenging trail that takes you to one of the most famous viewpoints in the American Southwest. The last stretch involves navigating a narrow ridge with steep drop-offs on both sides, but the panoramic views from the top are absolutely worth the effort. Another popular trail is The Narrows, which involves wading through the Virgin River as it cuts a gorge through towering sandstone walls. This hike offers a unique way to experience the park's geography from the bottom up.

Zion National Park is also home to an array of wildlife. Visitors might spot mule deer, bighorn sheep, and a variety of bird species including peregrine falcons and the Zion snail, a species found nowhere else on Earth. The park's diverse range of elevations and habitats also support a rich flora, from cottonwood trees along the riverbanks to hardy desert plants and ponderosa pines at higher elevations.

For rock climbers, the park offers an array of opportunities, with routes ranging from single-pitch scrambles to multi-day big wall challenges. The sandstone cliffs provide a unique climbing experience, offering both cracks and face climbing routes that appeal to a wide range of skill levels.

The park is not just a daytime destination; it's also a designated International Dark Sky Park. On a clear night, the lack of light pollution allows for breathtaking stargazing, with the Milky Way often visible stretching across the sky.

In summary, Zion National Park offers a versatile and awe-inspiring outdoor experience. Whether you're scaling the cliffs, hiking through narrow canyons, observing its unique flora and fauna, or simply gazing at the stars, Zion captivates its visitors with its natural grandeur and variety of adventures. It's a place where the Earth's geological history is vividly on display, and where the landscapes challenge and inspire those who explore them.
