Salt Lake City

The Mormon leader told his followers, "This is the right place," on July 24th, 1847.

The international headquarters of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons) is the Salt Lake City's major landmark.

Beehive House

Built in 1855, Beehive House was the Salt Lake City home of Brigham Young.

Discover how Brigham Young and his family lived in the 1800s, during a free 30-minute tour of the Beehive House.

Temple Square

Attracting close to five million people annually, Temple Square is Salt Lake's biggest attraction and one of the major tour sites of the West.

Utah National Parks

Bryce Canyon

The Bryce Canyon National Park, near Panguitch, is nature's sculpture.

The pink and red limestone spires have been chiselled out over the centuries by wind and water.

Zion National Park

To Brigham Young the area around the Virgin River, in the south-west corner of Utah, was very nice, but not Zion.

The highlight of Zion National Park is an expansive canyon. Follow the paths where native people and pioneers walked.

Gaze up at massive sandstone cliffs of cream, pink, and red that soar into a brilliant blue sky at Utah's First National Park.


Spiritual Centre of the Colorado Plateau. People from all over the world come to Moab to enjoy the breathtaking scenery and partake in the endless opportunities to meet nature one on one. From mountain biking to white-water rafting, hiking, climbing and camping the options for outdoor recreation and beautiful views are limitless.

Around Utah

Utah gets its name from the early Ute people of the region.

Half of the State of Utah is spread out on the Colorado plateau, 1,200 metres above sea level, where minimalist landscape photographers will enjoy the variety of shapes and colours in changing light conditions.

The Colorado River has beautifully carved many gorges and canyons, as it twists and turns through the soft sedimentary rock of the plateau.

An excellent example is the Meander Canyon in Dead Horse Point State Park, in eastern Utah.

Nature rises and falls dramatically in Utah, with King's Peak top of the ranges at 4,123 metres. The state is an ideal location for winter sports enthusiasts.

Those seeking solitude can also have plenty of that, and it is not without reason that the Mormons originally set themselves up here in 1846-1847, when it was still a part of Mexico.

Utah Travel Tips

Dos and Don'ts For Outdoor Adventures in Utah


Camp at designated sites or, where allowed, at previously used sites.

Avoid placing tents on top of vegetation and use a camp stove instead of making a campfire. Unless signs indicate otherwise, leave gates open or closed as you find them.

Historic Sights

Leave historic sites, Native American rock art, ruins, and artefacts untouched for the future.

Admire rock art from a distance and never touch it.

Stay out of ruins, leave artefacts in place and report violations.

Keep Canyon County Clean

Help keep Canyon Country clean.

Pack out your trash and recycle it, cleanup after less thoughtful visitors, and dispose of human waste properly.

Protect Water

Protect and conserve scarce desert water sources.

Camp at least 50 feet from isolated water sources to allow for wildlife access.

Where possible, carry your own drinking water. Leave potholes undisturbed and wash well away from pools and springs.

Tread Lightly

Tread lightly when travelling and leave no trace of your camping.

Drive and ride only on roads and trails where such travel is allowed.

Hike only on established trails, on rock, or in washes.


Allow space for wildlife.

When encountering wildlife, maintain your distance and remain quiet.

Teach children not to chase or pickup animals.

Keep pets under control.
