At the heart of the West, Utah is an outdoor lover’s playground, with terrain ripe for adventure stretching out for miles and miles. Here, the Rocky Mountains to the north give way to the broad plateaus and magnificent rock formations of the south. Connect with nature and lose yourself in the majesty of the state’s landscapes on your Utah holiday.

Utah undoubtedly has some of the best hiking, biking and canyoning in the country, but venture beyond that and you’ll find the state has even more adventure to offer. Visit Lake Powell and kayak along its many bends, drinking in the majesty of the canyon walls that envelope it. Of course, the state’s capital city can’t be forgotten, so do head to Salt Lake City and watch as the sun sets over the Great Salt Lake.

Utah’s Mighty Five

From the gateway city of Moab, venture into Arches National Park, where over 2,000 stone arches await, made by nature’s very own hand. Nearby Canyonlands National Park is split into four districts by the Colorado River, each with its own adventures to offer. Hike through Capitol Reef National Park’s vast vistas and feel as if nothing exists apart from you, the ground beneath and the sky above. Wander through the forested plateau and mystical rock formations of Bryce Canyon National Park. In Zion National Park, feel the canyons absorb you as you look up at the great walls from the water-filled floors.

Why not take in some of Utah’s incredible national parks before exploring the indulgent city of Las Vegas on our National Park Treasures tour, or head to Arizona and experience cowboy city life in Tucson or Phoenix?

Events & Festivals

Festivals and events are wonderful to include during your Utah holiday, offering a glimpse into the country’s authentic culture and traditions.

International Dark Sky Week

In April, the whole world celebrates the night sky during International Dark Sky Week. Utah is home to seven of the 42 International Dark Sky Parks designated by the International Dark Sky Association, including Canyonlands National Park, Capitol Reef National Park, and Dead Horse Point State Park. Each park offers the chance to gaze up at the wondrous night sky where there’s limited light pollution, giving a breath-takingly clear view of the stars and galaxies.

Sundance Film Festival

Each January and February, great films are launched at the infamous Sundance Film Festival, across theatres in Park City. Original filmmakers and audiences gather to view new content, from features and short films to performances and art installations. There are also live events, including panel discussions and conversations with the filmmakers. 

Savour the Summit, Park City

Billed as Park City’s biggest outdoor dinner party, each June you can enjoy Savour the Summit, which sees restaurants across the city host a communal dinner party with a table stretching along historic Main Street. Restaurants serve up delicious food to guests. Enjoy live music, meet new people and experience the beauty of communal eating in the company of new and old friends alike. 

Oktoberfest

Snowbird, a ski resort near Salt Lake City, hosts its annual Oktoberfest from mid-August to midOctober. The weekends at Snowbird are filled with a celebration of beer, with live music, activities and food throughout, and, most importantly, a lot of beer.

Local Cuisine

Get a flavour of the local culture through your palate during your Utah holiday. Here are a few of our favourite foodie experiences.

Artisan chocolate

Utah’s climate makes for ideal conditions for growing and processing cocoa, so it’s no surprise that it’s a hotspot for artisan chocolate. There are eight bean-to-bar chocolatiers in the state. If you’re a chocolate lover, sampling at least one maker’s chocolate is simply a must on during your holiday to Utah.

Pastrami burgers

The USA is famous for its hamburgers but, over the last few decades, Utah has put its own spin on the classic dish. At eateries across the state, you’ll find burgers topped with brined, seasoned and smoked pastrami, often accompanied with swiss cheese, Thousand Island dressing, or Fry Sauce.

Farm to Fork

Tuck into the local and wonderfully seasonal and fresh ingredients when you experience one of the many farm to fork eateries that are dotted throughout Utah, whether you’re visiting Midvale, Boulder, Ogden or Moab.
