Mighty 5 Utah From Salt Lake City

7-Days From $2,275pp

By going on one of our most popular tours, Southwest Adventure Tours will show you Utah’s Mighty 5 national parks in 7-days. Those parks are Arches, Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, and Zion. Each park will enable you to see spectacular scenery and unique geological formations all within the southern half of Utah.

We love to show off our home State of Utah, so guiding your tour in these parks and the other scenic areas we cover is our specialty. All of our tour guides have been to these places many, many times. We know all these places like the backs of our hands. We’ll show you all the places that other people don’t know about!

This tour is purposely designed to begin in Salt Lake City and end in Las Vegas. Our tour is also customizable, including running it in either direction. It can include more physical and adventurous activities, more leisurely sightseeing, or more days to do both! It can also be modified to spend more time in specific places.
