Welcome to the Bryce Canyon Tour
Welcome to the GPS-enabled offline self-guided driving tour of Bryce Canyon National Park! This incredible “City of Hoodoos” is part of Utah’s iconic “Mighty Five.”
Explore this ancestral home of the Paiute people, renowned for its striking vistas and iconic hoodoos. Learn about the great geological movements that formed this alien landscape as you drive along with the Bryce Amphitheatre and embark on walks and hikes on your Bryce Canyon tour.
About the Tour
Our journey through Utah’s stunning Bryce Canyon begins at the park’s entrance and continues on into this epic landscape. Our first stop will be at Fairyland Point, a lovely overlook offering our first glimpse at the kind of beauty that’s in store at Bryce.
As we drive, we’ll hear how Bryce got its name, and learn all about the Paiute tribe who lived here long before anyone else ever laid eyes on the place. We’ll pause at Sunrise Point and get our first look at the hoodoos which make this park famous. The Paiute believed these stone monoliths were the remains of ancient giants–and I’m sure you’ll see why once you visit one in person!
Next on the Bryce Canyon tour, we’ll visit Sunset Point, the perfect sister to Sunrise Point, which offers one-of-a-kind views. Come sunset, photographers from all around the world gather here to capture the breathtaking final rays of fiery sunlight.
As we continue on toward Inspiration Point, another phenomenal vista, we’ll start to uncover how this astonishing landscape actually formed in the first place. Then, it’s time to turn back the clock and recount the story of the first Mormon pioneers who arrived here and declared this place their new home.
After that, we’ll visit Swamp Canyon Overlook, which hides some seriously stunning views behind its modest name. But first, we’ll hear the Paiute tale of how people first came into the world and get the facts about the connection Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid have with this park!
We’ll keep driving through the earth’s oldest trees and learn about the curse which supposedly befalls anyone who dares study these trees too closely. Next, we’ll visit a natural arch–one of Mother Nature’s most impressive creations.
Then it’s on to a couple of canyons guaranteed to take your breath away with their sweeping views and lush interiors, plus a mythical tale of malevolent water spirits which the Paiute once believed occupied these rivers.
On our way to Rainbow Point, we’ll fill you in on all the wildlife you can see here, and give you the details on what to do in Bryce after the sun goes down. Have you ever seen the sky without light pollution? So clear you can see the Milky Way galaxy stretching out across the heavens? If not, it’s something you absolutely cannot miss. This will bring us to the conclusion of our Bryce Canyon tour.
