Bryce Canyon National Park Holidays

Let the awe-inspiring splendour of Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah simply take your breath away.

We love the naturally formed gothic spires, castle walls and church steeples boasting fanciful names like Thor's Hammer, the Wall of Windows and Tower Bridge. Head for the horseshoe-shaped amphitheatres and the sporadically arranged limestone pinnacles (hoodoos) at sunrise. The dramatic play of light turns the iron-rich limestone spires to a palette of reds, oranges and pinks, like smouldering flames set alight by the rising sun.

  • Wall Street

    Bryce Canyon is filled with hiking trails that circle the limestone spires, wind along cliffs, and duck through the canyon, connecting to spectacular viewpoints along the way. The easiest trail in Bryce Canyon is the Queens Garden Trail. The trailhead begins at Sunrise Point, from which you hike down, and then back up, viewing the strangely shaped rock formations the canyon is known for along the way. For a longer hike, take the Navajo Loop Trail, which drops into the amphitheatre. The Rim Trail follows the cliff along the Bryce Amphitheater and runs to Fairyland Point. Take the Bryce shuttle if you only fancy hiking one way. 

  • Fairyland Canyon

    The impressively diverse scenery of Wall Street is accessed by the Navajo Loop Trail. Wall Street is a narrow slit between sheer cliffs, dotted with towering Douglas fir trees and offering spectacular sights of Thor's Hammer, a tall, narrow rock thrusting into the sky and topped with a hammer-shaped rock.

  • Sunset and Sunrise Points

    Hike the Fairyland Loop Trail to see the hoodoos in Fairyland Canyon at eye level. Situated at the north of Bryce Canyon National Park, Fairyland Canyon is filled with tall, narrow, limestone hoodoos, rising like gothic spires from the canyon's bed. The Paiute Indians who first found the hoodoos believed they were ancient people turned to stone.
