Utah Day Trips
From the mountains to the desert, Utah has some of the most amazing scenery in the country. Get out and experience it this summer, try one of our top three picks for day trips in Utah.
Saddle up for a tour on horseback with a tour guide service like Rocky Mountain Outfitters, and see the natural wonders of Utah like a cowboy. Tour guides are knowledgeable and will patiently walk you through the basics if you have never been on a horse before. What a great way to see Utah from a new perspective.
A rafting trip isn’t just fun and adventurous, it’s also a great splashy way to have a cool time on a hot summer day. Go whitewater rafting on the Provo and Weber rivers, which cut through canyons between spectacular 12,000 foot mountain peaks.
This incredible waterfall is only 15 minutes from the heart of Provo, and drops over 600 feet to the Provo River. Splash around in the pool at the base of the falls, have a lovely picnic, or go hiking, bicycling, or rock climbing in and around the area.
