Utah’s national parks are known collectively as the “Mighty Five.” Situated not too far from each other in the southern part of the state, each park is a powerhouse of unique wonder and beauty. We crafted this itinerary to capture each of these spectacularly unique parklands, with ample time to immerse and connect in special ways with each. On this journey you will get trail dust on your boots, hear stories from local characters, and discover the magic of lesser-known and far more remote areas throughout this enchanted landscape.
The five parks are brimming with endless adventure and natural wonder. Arches has the highest density of natural arches in the world. Canyonlands is so sprawling that it’s divided into three districts, each with its own, different draw. Capitol Reef is a 100-mile “pinch” in the earth, filled with geological intrigue and cultural history. Bryce Canyon is a high-elevation hoodoo heaven. And Zion features narrow canyons, pockets of green, and soaring, colorful cliffs.
Mighty Five – mighty amazing!
