Why you'll love this trip
  • Visit Zion National Park and hike the Angel’s Landing trail up to Scout Lookout to explore its dramatic switchbacks, drop-offs and incredible views.
  • Experience the iconic Virgin River Narrows as you hike through moving water with your leader who will help you get your “stream legs” on your way to Orderville Canyon.
  • Hike the Navajo Loop to the famous Thor’s Hammer hoodoo in Bryce Canyon National Park – known for its crimson-coloured hoodoos (spire-shaped rock formations).
  • Hike the Island in the Sky section of the vast Canyonlands National Park and take in the incredible sweeping views of the Colorado river valley 1000 feet below.
  • Sunsets are always beautiful, but nothing can beat the colours of the Delicate Arch as the sun goes down – take your time and enjoy the unforgettable scene of Arches National Park.
  • Join a Navajo guide on a guided hike through Monument Valley and learn about this incredible place from an Indigenous perspective.

Is this trip right for you?
  • This is a hiking trip; a good fitness level will help you enjoying all included hikes and activities. We recommend you bring a pair of trekking poles to use during more strenuous hikes.
  • Hiking in these national parks can be hot during summer. Therefore, some of the hikes will take place very early in the morning or at sunset. Sun protection including a hat and sunscreen is a must, along with the capacity to carry at least two litres of water per person, as well as comfortable clothing and shoes suitable for hiking.

For those baby=boomers who are ready to take on the challenge of getting physically fit, the Intrepid trip, Utah's National Parks, was not only educational/informational, but was one that will take you to your limits to stay active and healthy

This was my first trip with Intrepid and our leader, Bradley Mahnke, made the trip memorable. If you ever get a chance to have him as a tour guide, you won’t be disappointed.
