The US state of Utah is characterized by its breathtaking natural beauty, which you should travel to with all your senses. Located in the middle of the southwestern United States, Utah offers its visitors five breathtaking national parks "The Mighty 5" ® (Arches, Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef and Zion) as well as 44 state parks and 8 national monuments, which are just as scenic but mostly less frequented.
Utah leaves nothing to be desired for nature and outdoor fans!

Moab and Arches National Park Utah

The city is just minutes from two national parks: Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park. The Dead Horse Point State Park with a special view of the Colorado River is also easily accessible.

The national park has the world's largest concentration of sandstone arches. Over 2,000 arches are located within the park and contain an amazing variety of geological formations.

Hiking, mountain biking, canyoning and rafting are just a few of the possible outdoor activities in the middle of Utah's impressive red rock landscape.

Canyonlands National Park

The park is the largest national park in Utah and stimulates the imagination with its spectacular natural scenery. Winter is a great time for photos as the red rocks are covered in light snow.

Moab & Arches National Park

Moab's unique combination of beautiful red rocky landscape and the cool waters of the Colorado River has made it one of the most sought-after travel destinations in southwest Utah. Warmth and hospitality are very important in the small resort in the center of one of the most impressive red rock landscapes. Three Scenic Byways offer outstanding views of the Colorado River, ancient rock carvings and dinosaur tracks, and sandstone cliffs with breathtaking views.
Insider tip: Cycling in the La Sal Mountains, where it's green and the temperatures are a bit lower, is an experience - after all, Moab is the mountain bike capital of the world.

Bryce Canyon Country

Bryce Canyon Country is home to the year-round national park of the same name with many different hiking options for families and advanced hikers. There are many groomed trails in winter.

Breathtaking hiking trails can be found in the Petrified Forest of Escalatne, moving back and forth between petrified wooden panels overlooking the Wide Hollow River, where you can paddle to your heart's content.

A popular excursion point in the Grand Stairs Escalante National Monument, next to iconic slot canyons, incredible desert landscapes and picturesque alpine forests with many outdoor recreation options.

The Anasazi Museum State Park takes visitors back in time. The old stone houses of some of the first inhabitants of this area are particularly worth seeing.

Bryce Canyon Country also includes parts of Capitol Reef National Park and Utah's only All-American Road. There are only 35 of these National Scenic Byways in all of the United States. There are great places to visit along All-American Road.
Insider tip: Something unique in the region - after decades, two full-service bars were recently opened: In the Outlaw Saloon in Hatch, guests can prepare their own steak on the huge indoor BBQ grill. In the 4th West Pub in Escalante, locals and tourists exchange ideas about the most important sights in the region.

Zion National Park Utah

Zion National Park is one of the most visited national parks in the USA and has something for everyone. In addition to iconic hikes for advanced hikers, there are also disabled-friendly trails.

The steep hike to Angels Landing, a vantage point that offers a breathtaking view of the canyon from a bird's eye view, leads directly along the rock face protruding vertically from the ground.

The place is right next to Zion National Park and is highly recommended as a stay. It scores with great accommodations, restaurants and many activities such as jeep driving, canyoning, helicopter flights and much more.

This hike first leads through ankle-deep river water and when you reach the rocky ridges, you continue waist-deep through the river. For this you will be rewarded with breathtaking rock walls on the left and right hand side.

A very good alternative to Springdale is St. George, also known as the gateway to Las Vegas, which is 190 km away. Here you will find four state parks, hotels, restaurants and a wide range of leisure activities. A free shuttle takes holidaymakers from the city to the national park and back again.
Insider tip: You should borrow a bike and ride down the gorge from the Temple of Sinewava - an incredible experience. You can easily reach the temple with the free shuttle that also takes your bike.
