Why now

You don’t need a reason to visit one of Earth’s most dramatic
landscapes. Bryce Canyon is the result of millions of years of
water and wind erosion creating a natural ‘amphitheatre’ of hoodoos
– gravity-defying limestone pillars that pierce the sky. It’s the
perfect place to escape big city life, get some fresh air and put
things in perspective.

Visit October to March and you may have entire trails to
yourself. While traditionally thought of as a summer destination,
winter in Bryce Canyon presents endless opportunities to go
snow-shoeing and cross country skiing. If you are adverse to the cold, then

An essential you need to bring with you

A tent. While you can stay in hotels or motels nearby, make sure

unmissable sunsets and sunrises.
