Zion National Park is a must-see destination in the American Southwest! Join one of our guided hiking tours to capture the beauty of this iconic Utah National Park.
“Mukuntuweap” to the native Southern Paiute tribes, Zion National Park is truly a “straight canyon,” with cliff walls extending over 2,000 feet above the canyon floor. Life thrives along the base of the canyon in serene cottonwood groves, lush hanging gardens, and with deer and turkey foraging the meadow. The Virgin River winds peacefully through, making it hard to imagine that these waters have carved out the surrounding landscape.
This slice of heaven is a guide-favorite location. The cherry-on-top of our Utah Mighty Five and Zion + Bryce Explored trips, we love ending our week of adventure with such dramatic scenery. Whether you traverse the canyon walls, wade through the Narrows, or just relax under a cottonwood tree near the historic Zion Lodge, we believe this park will forever hold a special place in your heart, too.
Our small group sizes (6-12 guests per trip) allow for a more personalized and intimate experience. Your guide is able to provide more individual attention and answer any questions you may have. Plus, you can bond with your crew to create life time adventure buddies! Great for solo travelers, couples, and families alike. Click here to learn more reasons why to travel with us.

Nestled in the heart of southwestern Utah, Zion National Park is a natural wonder that is truly unlike any other place on earth. From its towering red rock cliffs and sandstone canyons to its diverse plant and animal life, the park is a feast for the senses that is sure to leave a lasting impression on all who visit.
As you explore the park you’ll see why the pioneers were so drawn to this place. The canyon is home to some of the park’s most iconic landmarks, such as the Great White Throne and the Temple of Sinawava. And if you’re looking for a little bit of adventure, there are plenty of trails to choose from. Take an easy stroll along the river or a challenging hike up steep cliffs. One of the most popular trails in the park is the Narrows Trail, which takes hikers through the narrowest part of the canyon. As you make your way through the narrow gorge, you’ll be surrounded by towering walls of sandstone that seem to stretch up to the sky. It’s a truly breathtaking experience that you’ll never forget.
In addition to its natural beauty, Zion National Park is also home to a rich cultural history. It is located within the traditional territory of the Southern Paiute people, who have lived in the region for thousands of years. Visitors can learn about the history and culture of the Paiute people at the park’s museum and cultural center. So if you’re looking to connect with nature and learn about the history and culture of the region, Zion National Park is the perfect place to visit.
