The Zion National Park is located in the south-western part of Utah in the USA . The biggest attraction is the unique 800-metres deep and 24-km long Zion Canyon, cut out by the Virgin River. The Zion National Park is the oldest national park in Utah (founded in 1919) and is one of the most visited parks in the USA. Three million tourists visit the park every year to admire unique sceneries, caves, wilderness and one of the largest natural arches- the so-called Kolob Arch.

Basic facts

The Zion National Park is situated on the conjunction of three geographical areas: the Colorado Plateau, the Great Basin and the Mojave Desert. In the park, you may enjoy the charming desert scenery enhanced by natural stone arches and the wild coniferous forests. Due to its unique geographical position, the park is home to many rare plant and animal species – e.g. there are 19 kinds of bats.

Useful information

Follow the Kolob Terrace Road to get to the northern desert part of the park, where you can visit one of the greatest natural arches- the Kolob Arch. The only road closed for cars during the main season (from April to October) , is the sightseeing Zion Canyon Scenic drive. This road offering unforgettable views is serviced by a bus free of charge. You can also explore the Zion National Park on foot as there are many tourist trails there. The most popular of them is the trail called Virgin River Narrows, which leads through the canyon- first along the river and afterwards through the river itself. It is over 20 km long and you can split the trip into more days but it is necessary to have permission for sleeping outside official camps. Another popular trail, poetically called the Angels Landing, runs along the western side of the canyon and offers breathtaking views of the surroundings. The Zion National Park offers- among many other things- numerous rock-climbing trails, such as Spaceshot or Prodigal Son. You can also explore the park on the back of a horse. There are long rides available with a guide. The Zion National Park is opened all year round. It is advisable to plan your trip according to the weather: in spring, the weather is unpredictable and storms are frequent, but it is also the time when the whole park flourishes. In summer, the temperatures go well over 40 degrees Celsius. In autumn, the weather is usually sunny but the nights are already cold. The entrance to the park (valid for 7 days) is 25 dollars per car and 12 dollars for a cyclist or a pedestrian.


There are several camps directly in the park, but they are often- especially during the main season- full. There are other camps and hotels in the nearby city Springdale .


By car, follow road n.9 from Springdale . The nearest international airport is in Las Vegas .
