Utah Adventures

Utah is a fresh and vibrant destination filled with outdoor recreation. It is a landscape full of compelling scenery mixed with a wide range of adventure. Southeastern Utah is home to mountain biking and rafting the Green and Colorado Rivers should be mandatory, and hiking Escalante’s slot canyons is backpacking at its best. All types of recreational activities exist in Utah and are available for every skill level and interest. Golfing, rock climbing, backpacking, hiking, boating and camping are exciting endeavors for visitors during the summer, spring and fall months. In the winter, skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing and snowmobiling are favorites of locals and tourists alike.

Nearly every type of outdoor adventure can happen in Utah. It’s an exciting mix, including trails to explore on foot, on horseback, or via off-highway vehicle; roads for bicycling; rivers to float; slopes just waiting to be skied; scenic golf courses; guided tours; and a surprising variety of wildlife viewing options.
