Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, and Paria Slot Canyons...these are big name, big adventure, big WOW hiking destinations! Probably, the question should be "why not a Utah hiking vacation?" but let's focus on why to do one. First, you get to see the very best of Utah's Canyon Country, which essentially offers an endless number of options. Second, we take care of nearly everything so you can focus 100% on hiking and enjoying Utah's national parks. You can travel light, as we provide gear and meals; and you can travel worry-free as we handle permits, local transportation, accommodations and more. Third, you will learn a tremendous amount about Utah's fascinating natural and cultural history - more than you can easily learn on your own. Finally, going with a professional Utah guiding company like Wildland Trekking provides a higher level of safety in a landscape with plenty of dangers and hazards.
We offer many options for an unforgettable Utah hiking trip. Zion, Bryce, and Arches are for people who want to see the famous sites, explore the source of the amazing Instagram pictures online, and be awed by Utah's natural scenery. Capitol Reef, Grand Staircase-Escalante, Canyonlands, and Paria Slot Canyons are for people who want to get more off-the-beaten-path and explore the wilder, more remote side of Utah. Many of our tours feature multiple parks, which allow you to combine the highlights of Utah's most popular national parks with more obscure and remote destinations. (In Paria and Capitol Reef we exclusively offer backpacking trips that are centered on those specific areas.)
With 6 major destinations and 4 trip styles (backpacking trips, inn-based hiking tours, basecamp tours, and day hikes), there's a lot to choose from in Utah! Above we talk about where to go, so here let's talk about what type of trip to do. Utah backpacking trips are great for people who want to experience the wild side of Utah and challenge themselves in canyon country wilderness. These trips take guests to amazing, backcountry oases, arches, stunning vistas, and fascinating geological sites. Basecamp and inn-based tours combine a diversity of exceptional hikes into a single hiking package, with either tent camping or canyon country lodges/hotels/inns as our accommodations. If you prefer comfort more, we recommend an inn-based tour; if you prefer more of an outdoor experience, then check out the basecamp tours. Finally, we offer day hikes in Zion National Park for guests who want to make the most of their time in Zion and are limited on time. Feel free to call us at 800-715-HIKE with any other questions you have!
