Visit Utah: glamping

Utah is located in the western United States, with Colorado, Nevada, Wyoming, Idaho, and Arizona as its neighbors. Folk history in Utah describes how the state is named after the Ute tribe, which has been translated to “people of the mountains.” Looking at Utah’s landscape, you can understand why this might be accurate. The state has three impressive national parks: Zion National Park, Canyonlands National Park, and Arches National Park.

Best things to do in Utah outside

Skiers and snowboarders travel from all over the world just to experience the thrill of a day spent at one of the many world-class resorts Utah has to offer. Its reputation as a skiing powerhouse was bolstered even further in 2002 when Utah hosted the Winter Olympics. Glampers can also fill their days with the usual outdoor activities here, as hiking, rafting, sailing, and mountain biking all rank highly for visitors in the area. Bryce National Park is another Utah hotspot; a massive lack of light pollution in the region reveals thousands of stars at night and glampers can even take part in a night of astronomy, using professional telescopes to gaze into the galaxy above.

Top attractions in Utah

Utah is home to many unforgettable sites and a heritage which stretches back hundreds of years. The Great Salt Lake is located in the North of the U.S. and ranks as the largest salt lake in the Western Hemisphere. While glampers won’t be able to catch much fish here, sailing is instead a very popular choice for outdoor enthusiasts. However, if fishing is at the top of your to-do list in Utah, then you can visit the Green River in the North-Eastern area of the state where the scenery is simply breathtaking.

Best time of year to visit Utah

While the U.S. average is 205 sunny days per year, Utah enjoys around 240 days of sunshine every year. This makes it one of the nicest states to visit when glamping, as visitors who come during summer or winter can often enjoy their adventures with the sun high in the sky. Rainfall in Utah is way below the US average of 38 inches, making it one of the driest states in the country. Snowfall is also excellent here as around 43 inches of snow litter the slopes every year, giving skiers plenty to work with.

Best outdoor vacation spots in Utah

The majority of Western Utah’s landscape consists of arid desert and mountain ranges, which emphasize its rugged terrain. Travelers will come across valleys, mountains, forests, and numerous wildlife species during their stay. However, just west of the Great Salt Lake, Bonneville Salt Flats awaits for adventurers to see a completely different terrain in Utah and one of the biggest natural features in the entire region.
