From discovering magnificent national parks to skiing some of the greatest snow on earth to touring the outlaw hideouts of the Wild West, Utah holidays are full of adventures set within stunning natural scenery.
Explore the Arches National Park, home to the famous 2,000 arches, and visit Great Salt Lake, one of the largest lakes of its kind in the world. If you love the outdoors, a holiday to Utah is for you.
Since Utah is one of the premier outdoor destinations in the USA, it is no surprise that the outdoor adventures here are basically limitless. And with five national parks, seven national monuments, five national forests, 43 state parks, and 14 ski areas, you have plenty of backdrops to choose from. The rivers and lakes offer kayaking, rafting, and boating, the canyons offer rock climbing and mountain biking, or head to Utah's mountains to ski some of the softest, lightest powder on Earth.
The Great Salt Lake is one of the largest salt lakes in the world, second only to the Dead Sea. This unique lake is home to millions of native birds, such as the largest population of Wilson's phalarope in the world. On the shores of the lake, Antelope Island State Park offers hiking and cycling trails, beaches, and stunning panoramic views across the lake. On the southern side of the lake at Great Salt Lake State Park is a marina from which sailboats launch into the waters.
