Utah and Colorado prove that some of the most secluded places in the US are also some of the most stunning. See the epic rock formations in Arches National Park and the forest-covered mountains of Colorado during this eight-day trip. You’ll hike, wild swim, raft and explore the secluded backcountry. Not that it’s entirely secluded; you may spot a few black bears lounging in the living room that is Rocky Mountain National Park.
When it comes to vacation spots in the US for nature and adventure lovers, Utah is a top pick. From the stark white slopes of Brian Head to the crimson-hued hoodoos of Bryce Canyon National Park, all-season fun on foot, skis and ATVs is readily available. Add in the cool urban hubs of Salt Lake and Park City, and you’ve got a great mix of culture and outdoor fun. Get to know Zion, Bryce and Utah’s Navajo Nation on this low-impact four-day trip.
