Utah

Kanab & Zion National Park holidays

EASY PEASY ZION

Holidays to Kanab and Zion National Park tick all the boxes. You can discover an art-loving, museum-filled, foodie city, surrounded by geological wonders which are perfect for outdoor activities and incredible photos. Whether you win The Wave lottery or not, you’ll wish you could stay longer.

Visit some of the most photogenic spots in southern Utah and see why the region has inspired artists for centuries – even now, many still move to Kanab and other parkside towns. You can hike short trails or take horseback tours to discover rock arches, mesas, canyons, cliffs, sand dunes and hanging gardens. From Zion National Park to Kolob Canyons in the north and Coyote Buttes in the east, there’ll be something new to find every day of your stay.

Families will love getting active on Coral Pink Sand Dunes. Or you can uncover history at Moqui Cave, and in the museums and heritage homes of Kanab. Take time between adventures to try a locally produced meal from an award-winning chef, take part in a lively cookout, or simply wander the galleries of the wilderness city.

Zion National Park and the surrounding area is more accessible than you think, too. You can fly to St. George Municipal Airport from Los Angeles or Salt Lake City, or hire a car in Utah’s state capital and embark on a scenic three-hour drive. Kanab and Zion can easily be added on to a Las Vegas trip. Or, for an epic adventure, why not hire an RV and explore Utah’s dramatic landscapes? Speak to our Travel Specialists to find out more.

Explore the wilderness on horseback, go canyoning or climbing, and camp out under the unspoiled stars among the many trails of Zion National Park. Take the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive along the canyon floor as the cliffs rise high on each side. Or why not drive the mountainside Zion-Mount Carmel Highway? You’ll get a new perspective when you pass through the one-mile tunnel from the south of the park to the east.

Kanab and The Wave

Enter the daily lottery for a sought-after ticket to The Wave and Coyote Buttes, where you can snap photos that fill your friends with envy. These colourful rock formations are the most famous sight in Kanab – but there’s plenty more to see.

Wander through Buckskin Gulch, the deepest slot canyon in the southeast. Ride Coral Pink Sand Dunes by dune buggy, dirt bike, or sand-board. See 1,000-year-old artefacts at Red Pueblo Museum and Heritage Park, or step into dinosaur footprints at Moqui Cave.

You can see real movie sets at Little Hollywood Museum. Uncover art inspired by the region’s stunning landscapes at the galleries of Walt Thirion, Raven’s Heart, The Rafters, and Maynard Dixon Legacy Museum. Learn about the city’s native people and early settlers at Kanab Heritage House and Museum. And discover how two cultures learned to co-exist at Pipe Spring National Monument.

Zion Trails

With two scenic drives and a hop-on hop-off shuttle, Zion is one of the easiest national parks in America to explore. But the short, simple hiking trails offer the best way to immerse yourself in this incredible landscape.

You can walk just one mile around Canyon Overlook Trail to enjoy spectacular views over the valley below. Take the two-mile Riverside Walk past hanging gardens, waterside spurs, and seasonal waterfalls along the Virgin River.

Witness the dripping stone overhang and its cliff-side flora, as you travel the four-mile Weeping Rock trail – you’ll be able to truly appreciate the canyon’s vastness from the rock base. Looking for more of a challenge? Travel the narrow ridge to Angels Landing and a breath-taking lookout over Zion Canyon, or follow the river through the huge slot canyon of The Narrows.

Best time to visit Zion National Park

Both the city of Kanab and Zion National Park can be visited all year round. But some attractions and facilities operate seasonably between May and September.

Late summer and autumn traditionally offer the best weather for hikers, as temperatures hover between 15°C and 20°C and lower rainfall leaves the trails dry and accessible. July temperatures can soar to 30°C on extreme occasions, but most days remain cooler – so there’s rarely a bad time for outdoor activities during this period.

Show Less

Winter is quieter in Kanab and Zion National Park. The park’s shuttle services take a break, but you can still explore independently. Just be sure to pack suitable clothing for staying comfortable and safe during the colder days, as snowfall is not unheard of.
