The Bryce Canyon National Park is located in the south-western part of Utah in the USA . The biggest attraction of the park is the amphitheater called Bryce Canyon, which offers breathtaking views and countless rock towers and rock arches. Due to the unforgettable sceneries that turn into unbelievable colors during sunrise and sunset, the Bryce Canyon National Park belongs to one of the most popular destinations for tourists and photographers from all over the world.

Basic facts

The Bryce Canyon National Park was founded in 1928. The famous Bryce Canyon, 19 km long, nearly 5 km wide and about 240 meters deep, is not in fact a canyon at all. As well as some other canyons in the park, it was not created by a river. It is a natural amphitheater that was, along with other geological formations such as rock arches and rock towers called hoodooos, created over millions of years, by erosion, wind, freeze and water. The Bryce Canyon National Park is home to many rare plant and animal species. With a little luck, you can spot prairie dogs, pumas or the much more common black bears.

Useful information

You can explore the Bryce Canyon National Park in several ways. There is a sightseeing road running through the park that has 13 stops-viewing sites- in the main part of the park, from which you can enjoy charming views of the most interesting parts of the Bryce Canyon. The poetically named viewing sites, such as the Sunrise Point, the Sunset Point or the Inspiration Point, are the main attractions of the park, as well as the highest point of the park- the Paria view, from which you can see up to 160 km far in good weather conditions. In case you are visiting the park during the main season, i.e. from half of May to September, you can use buses that run through the whole park. It is also possible to explore the Bryce Canyon National Park in other ways: on bike, horse or on foot. There are many hiking paths of different lengths and levels of difficulty and all of them offer beautiful viewing sites. Another popular activity in the park is bird-watching. There are about 175 species of birds, among them e.g. the critically endangered Californian condor. The views during sunset and sunrise are truly unique– the whole canyon turns into hardly describable colors. Watching the night sky is an unforgettable experience as well. The Bryce Canyon National Park is quite far from civilization, so you can see over 7,500 stars at moonless nights. The entrance fee to the park (valid for 7 days) is 25 dollars per car and 12 dollars for a cyclist or a pedestrian.


There is accommodation available directly in the park- either in a hotel or a camp. You can also stay in the nearby town Bryce Canyon City.


By car, follow road n.12. The nearest international airports are in Las Vegas and Salt Lake City .
