Venture into an other-worldly maze of eroded limestone spires and windows. Revel in expansive pink and ivory cliffside views.

With a plethora of hiking options for every ability level, your guide will concoct an experience to suit your needs.

In addition to hiking, you can expect your day to include tasty snacks and a delightful picnic lunch, catered to your dietary needs.

Weather in Bryce Canyon National Park

Perched at over 8,000 ft in elevation, Bryce towers above the surrounding canyon-laden countryside. Characterized by a notable variance in weather conditions, it is wise to wear layers that can be changed to suit the temperature extremes. Hats and skin protection are recommended year-round, as high-altitude sun, and unforeseen wind or precipitation can materialize any day of the year. Be sure to double-check the area’s forecast as your adventure draws near.

Spring and Fall tend to be pleasant, with daytime highs in the 50’s and 60’s, and evening lows around or below freezing. Summer high temperatures peak around 80 degrees, with evenings in the upper 40’s. Winter days might barely climb above freezing, and nights can drop to near or below zero. March is historically the snowiest month, but winter storms might frequent the plateau from October through April. Afternoon thunderstorms tend to arise in mid- to late summer.
