Arrival at Bryce Canyon

Bryce Canyon is one of America’s most spectacular national parks and is not to be missed. Just a few hours drive from Zion National Park, it’s known for its collection of jagged rocky “hoodoos”. The drive in meanders through these red and white rock formations, before arriving at your cosy hotel that has a good sized swimming pool for you to relax and settle in for the next couple of nights.

With very little light pollution, the night skies here are so dark that you can witness an incredible 7,500 stars! Between Spring & Autumn you might also have the chance to attend one of renowned evening Astronomy Programs held at the Visitor Center. Their high-tech telescopes mean you can view stunning views of planets and galaxies alongside talks from local astronomers. If the conditions are right, you could even go on a ranger-guided full moon hike.

Free time to explore

After a wholesome breakfast at your hotel, you’ve got free time to venture into the national park and although you can drive yourself, parking is limited so we recommend using the free shuttle service. Starting at the Visitor Center, you can head out on one of the many brilliant ranger-led programs that last around an hour and include crafts and educational talks – all for free! It’s a good way to get to an overview before you continue further into the park.

There are plenty of hikes to choose from in the park, with one of the easiest taking you along the Rim Travel between two fantastic viewpoints – Sunset Point and Sunrise Point. It’s one mile round-trip that is fairly level and paved, offering views that overlook Bryce Amphitheater and its endless array of pink pinnacles that peak out of the ground. Another great hike is the Bristlecone Loop through spruce-fir forests to cliffs with panoramic vistas.

Depart Bryce Canyon

At the end of your time here, it’s time to pack up and move onto your next destination. Most people tend to choose the Grand Canyon as their next stop, but if you’re looking for something a little different then why not head to a traditional, working ranch and live like a cowboy! Just ask your travel specialist to help you organise this.
