UTAH MIGHTY FIVE NATIONAL PARKS ADVENTURE

Adventure through the epic terrain of the Southwest while exploring the famed Utah Mighty Five! Along this adventure, you will explore five of the nation’s most stunning national parks; from slot canyons and hoodoos to sandstone and Native American rock art, each park has its unique features and significant historical and cultural sites scattered within them. Not only will you visit national parks, but you will have the opportunity to witness the most beautiful, fascinating, and diverse topography in the world, stopping by Zion, Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, Canyonlands, and Arches National Parks. Each day varies on our Utah Mighty Five National Parks Adventure and offers some of Earth’s most surreal photo opportunities. Before we arrive in Moab, we will make an “off the beaten path” stop in the San Rafael Swell and Goblin Valley State Parks, truly giving you a chance to experience the best the Southwest offers.

“We had the best trip in Utah, exploring the Mighty Five National Parks, thanks to Dean and his team. We were so impressed with their knowledge, the hikes, all the incredible meals/snacks they provided, etc. All the lodging arrangements were top-notch. The overall experience provided by Dean and the team was incredible. We can’t wait to get on to our next trip with World Wide Trekking. It was one of the best trips I have ever been on.” – Sheila

Arrival: There are daily flights into Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC). Your trip manager will help you arrange an arrival time window (we prefer morning arrival flight times).

Departure: We prefer that all flights departing from Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC) leave in the late afternoon, allowing the group enough time to get to the airport.

The benefit of using a travel agent is in the event of itinerary changes, the travel agent will find the best flight connections, and land arrangements, for you. Though third-party travel websites are convenient, we do not recommend using them, due to instability in the itineraries. We also recommend that you protect your flight with travel insurance and a refundable ticket.

Salt Lake City

Utah, where the Rocky Mountains, Great Basin, and Colorado Plateau converge, boasts extremely diverse and stunning geography. Although most of this western state experiences a semi-arid or desert climate, the many mountain ranges offer a large variety of additional climates. From high alpine forests to vast deserts filled with humbling sandstone towers, walls, and arches, Utah’s landscapes are numerous and awe-inspiring. Utah is home to 5 National Parks, 4 national monuments, and 4 state parks. The capital of Utah, Salt Lake City, gets its namesake from the Great Salt Lake which is the largest saltwater lake in the Western Hemisphere with a salinity far saltier than seawater.

Salt Lake City, Utah is the world headquarters for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, making Utah the only state in the U.S. that has a majority population belonging to a single church. The industries that makeup Utah’s diverse economy include mining, oil and gas development, tourism, agriculture and cattle ranging salt production, and a quickly growing tech industry. Additionally, there are 6 Native American tribes in Utah today, the Goshute, Navajo, Paiute, Ute, Shoshone, and Uintah and Ouray Tribes.
