Preview The Tour
While there’s lots of natural beauty to love in Bryce Canyon, the park is most famous for its gravity-defying hoodoos. These strange, towering rock formations look like something from another world, and are an essential bucket list item! Visit our blog to learn about Bryce Canyon’s best view.
It depends on what you’re looking for! Bryce Canyon offers an otherworldly desert landscape, while Zion’s river makes for a lush, rocky oasis. But since the parks are right next to one another, why not visit both?
Late spring or early fall are the best times of year to visit Bryce Canyon, especially if you want to avoid the heat. If the hot sun doesn’t scare you, however, summer is also a great time! Winter can be tricky, as snows make conditions unpredictable. Visit our blog for more information.
Absolutely! As one of Utah’s “Mighty Five” national parks, Bryce Canyon is near the top of the list of America’s must-see destinations.
Bryce Canyon was home to the Paiute people over 800 years ago. Then came the Mormon settlers and, finally, the National Park Service. But, of course, its geologic story dates back way farther than any of that!
The term “hoodoo” actually arises from the same root word as “voodoo”! Hoodoo spirituality, originating in West Africa, suggests that certain natural formations such as those found in Bryce Canyon exhibit mystical powers.
Because Bryce Canyon is a national park, it’s owned by the federal government. This allows the Park Service to protect the land from development and preserve this important wilderness.
It might be hard to believe when you see it, but Bryce Canyon is totally natural. And yes, that includes the hoodoos!
Thanks to how compact it is, one day is enough to adequately explore Bryce Canyon. If you’re an avid hiker, however, you’ll probably want at least two days to get the most out of the park’s best trails. For more details, visit the blog to know timing.
Yes, Bryce Canyon has snakes. The one to be most cautious of is the Great Basin Rattlesnake. When hiking, just make sure to keep your eyes and ears open and keep your distance from any snakes you encounter.
Bryce Canyon is about 200 miles from Provo, Utah and 250 miles from Las Vegas, Nevada. However, there’s plenty of lodging available in the nearby towns of Bryce, Tropic, and Cannonville.
Bryce Canyon is open 24 hours a day all year round! That said, it’s important to check the National Park Service website before you visit, just in case there are any unexpected road closures.
Bryce Canyon gets its striking red color from the high iron content in the rocks. Think of the way that iron turns red as it rusts—that’s basically what you’re seeing in Bryce Canyon!
