Experience Utah’s Wild Side

For some early settlers of the American West, Utah was the promised land. To many outdoor lovers, it still is. Mountains, canyons, and deserts call out to be hiked, backpacked, and biked through. Visit Utah’s “Mighty 5” National Parks and find out why they are among some of the most visited destinations in the United States. Enjoy camping at Zion National Park, or staying at Bryce Canyon’s historic lodge on a guided trip with AOA. Get extra adventurous and join a backpacking trip down the Escalante River, the last mapped river in the continental US. If you are a glutton for adventure, come to Utah and have your fill.

Zion National Park

Zion National Park was named by mormon settlers who came out west in search of peace and prosperity. The towering sandstone walls of Zion called to those settlers as then as they still call to travelers from across the world today. Experience the beauty of Zion while hiking or biking through the dynamic landscape. Spend a weekend or a whole week camping beneath the stars or take a private trip and stay at the historic park lodge and hit all the highlights of the park!

Bryce Canyon National Park

Bryce Canyon’s otherworldly rock formations or “hoodoos” beckon rimside viewers to descend into the canyon and hike among them. Each hour of the day and night offers a new and different light through which to view the colorful spires. Bryce is the perfect launching point for visiting surrounding areas like Zion, Escalante, Kodachrome, Thunder Mountain, and more!
