Bryce Canyon National Park: Self-Guided Driving Tour

1. Bryce Canyon National Park: Self-Guided Driving Tour

Embark on an adventure through Bryce Canyon National Park on a narrated self-guided driving tour in Bryce, Utah. Witness breathtaking vistas, gravity-defying hoodoos, and much more. This tour has been developed by local guides, curated by creative writers, and narrated by professional voice artists. Watch animated videos along the way that show you what you can't see, such as snapshots from different centuries or interior rooms. Start by downloading the app that will function as your personal guide, audio tour, and map all in one. Then, start with a stop at Fairyland Point, an overlook offering a first glimpse at the kind of beauty that’s in store at Bryce. As you drive, hear how Bryce got its name and learn all about the Paiute Tribe who lived here long before anyone else. Pause at Sunrise Point and see the hoodoos that the Paiute believed were the remains of ancient giants. Next, visit Sunset Point, sister to Sunrise Point, which also offers one-of-a-kind views. Come sunset, photographers from all around the world gather here to capture the breathtaking final rays of fiery sunlight. Continue toward Inspiration Point, another iconic vista. Uncover how this landscape formed. Then, turn back the clock and recount the story of the first Mormon pioneers who arrived here and declared this place their new home. After that, visit Swamp Canyon Overlook, which hides stunning views behind its modest name. Hear the Paiute tale of how people first came into the world and get the facts about the connection Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid have with this park. Next, drive through the earth’s oldest trees and learn about the curse which supposedly befalls anyone who dares study these trees too closely. Visit a natural arch, one of Mother Nature’s most impressive creations. Then it’s on to a couple of canyons guaranteed to take your breath away with their sweeping views and lush interiors. Plus, hear a mythical tale of malevolent water spirits which the Paiute once believed occupied these rivers. Heading to Rainbow Point, get filled in on all the wildlife you can see here. Then, learn what to do in Bryce after the sun goes down. Conclude your trip with the rare opportunity to see the sky without light pollution. Experience a view so clear you can see the Milky Way galaxy stretching out across the sky. Along the route, enjoy a bunch of additional optional stops and hikes.

Bryce Canyon National Park: Queens Garden Trail with Picnic

2. Bryce Canyon National Park: Queens Garden Trail with Picnic

Visit Bryce Canyon National Park and hike one of its easiest trails, the Queens Garden Trail. Follow your guide as they take you through stunning scenery and delight on a picnic charcuterie board lunch in the afternoon. Meet your guide and begin the hike at Sunrise Point. See the park's favorite hoodoo, Thor's Hammer. Hike from Sunrise Point to Sunset Point by way of Queens Garden, Navajo Loop, and Wall Street trails. Walk among the towering hoodoos, through carved arches, and along switchback ridges. See a grove of bristlecone pines, the world’s longest-living trees, balancing rocks, and toppled hoodoos. The Wall Street portion of the park is perhaps the most photographed section within the canyon. Arrive at Sunset Point and enjoy incredible views from the outlook. At approximately 1:30 PM break for a charcuterie board picnic lunch at Farview Point. Enjoy cured meats, cheese, fruits, vegetables, nuts, crackers, and spreads. After lunch, head to Rainbow Point, the highest point in Bryce Canyon. Take in the stunning views of the hoodoos and colorful cliffs below. See the Natural Bridge, a beautiful window to the ponderosa pine forest on the canyon floor, and Swamp Canyon. Stop at Bryce Point and enjoy one of the grandest views in the park. Bryce Point shows a wide view where you can see the main amphitheater. Get another view of the main amphitheater from Inspiration Point. Towards the end of your hike pass by Mossy Cave and Waterfall. The mossy cave is a moss garden with water moving through the rocks to create hanging gardens and mossy caves. In the winter months, Mossy Cave is filled with large icicles. The waterfall at Mossy Cave is from a man-made canal which is beautiful against the orange canyon, and a very exciting view as water is so scarce in Bryce Canyon.

What people are saying about Bryce

The guide was very informative. The only issue with it is that when you reached the next chapter where it would kick on, it would go back to the 1st chapter and you would have to scroll ahead to the correct one. There were 2 of the chapters that didn't play. We did enjoy hearing about Bryce Canyon and the stories of its history.

Great way to self guide..a lot of history. Tour will take you to places where the bus does not go..second serif guided we have used.

Works well. I am glad i brought this prior to the trip
