Adventures in the Incredible Canyons of Utah

  • Astonishing rock formations, river-carved canyons and sheer sandstone cliffs
  • Kids make like early pioneers, exploring Bryce Canyon by mule
  • Pedal among crimson rocks and desert wildflowers
  • Starry night skies far from city lights
  • Splash your way through the Narrows in Zion

"Awesome!" Sometimes the word just fits. Whether you're among hoodoos and pinnacles in Bryce Canyon ("sweet!"). Hiking in a slot canyon in Zion ("epic!"). Or laughing at fireside stories under a starry sky ("our leaders rock!"). You just can't contain yourself. Because the whole experience is truly... awesome.

Itinerary

Days 1-3 It's an exhilarating hike through Zion's Narrows,  one of the most renowned slot canyons in the world, with small waterfalls and hanging gardens cascading down the rock faces  Swap stories around the campfire, beneath night skies exploding with stars  Experienced canyoneering instructors show kids the ropes Adults opt for an easygoing walk past Emerald Pools or a thrilling climb to Angels Landing  Embark on a traffic-free bike ride amid towering walls of sheer Navajo sandstone.

Days 4-5 In Bryce, hike through an impressive slot canyon  whose walls are only ten feet apart in places  Discover a labyrinth of hoodoos and vivid rock formations sprouting from the floor of Queen's Garden  Grown-ups spin to Rainbow Point where layer upon layer of rock create the distant Grand Staircase  Kids explore Bryce Canyon by mule—just like early pioneers! What was that? Desert critters, like lizards and chipmunks, scamper across your path.

This deluxe camping trip takes the whole family to an enchanted pocket of the American southwest that just has to be seen to be believed. Weeping rocks, twisting slot canyons, hanging gardens and looming hoodoos…Utah's Zion & Bryce National Parks showcase some of Mother Nature's best work! From the top of Angels Landing to the twisted labyrinth of the Fairyland Trail, Backroads takes the whole gang hiking and biking through a dazzling geological wonderland.

Interpretive Guides & Hiking Without Your Leaders

The National Park Service has many regulations on hiking. In Zion National Park you will begin your hike with your leaders, who will hike with you as far as park service regulations allow. You will then explore the remainder of the trails on your own. In Bryce Canyon National Park, your leaders can hike with you but can't act as interpretive guides. Throughout the trip, your leaders will give an orientation to the area's flora, fauna and terrain before your hikes. Thank you for helping us cooperate with each park's regulations!

Tents & Sleeping Essentials

Our spacious dome tents comfortably accommodate two adults plus luggage. On Family Trips we provide two adjacent tents for parents and children. Cots with an extra-thick inflatable sleeping pad, sleeping bag and sleep sheet are all provided. Backroads does not supply pillows, so please bring your own. No lighting is provided in your tent, so a small flashlight is essential.

Restroom & Shower Facilities

Restroom facilities are available at each campground. Shower facility floors can be wet, so be sure to bring flip-flops! We also recommend bringing a hanging toiletry bag since space is limited and surfaces are wet. Be advised that outlets and mirrors are few. Backroads does not supply towels, so please be sure to pack your own.
