Arches National Park Holidays

2,000 Remarkable Arches

Arches National Park is sure to amaze; with over 2000 natural sandstone arches, hundreds of soaring pinnacles and giant balanced rocks this scenery is simply stunning.

Journey along the one way, 18 mile scenic drive onto the plateau, stopping off for the panoramic views of eroded sandstone formations; towers, ribs, gargoyles, hoodoos, pinnacles and of course arches. Get up early as the sun rises and see the light break above the horizon. At sunset, the red rock becomes drenched with the sun’s rays and photographers name this ‘magic hour’.

Explore Utah’s Mighty Five National Parks; pick up a car or motorhome from Salt Lake City or Las Vegas and drive to Arches in 4 to 6 hours. These epic national parks are incredible after dark too and are some of the darkest skies in the United States. The darkness of a moonless night can be surprising to visitors but the views of the Milky Way are nothing more than mesmerising.
