Utah Destination guide

As the world leader in travel experiences since 1947, we connect you to the real Utah in a way like no other.
Utah is a state of showstoppers, from beautiful red-rock canyons and towering mesas, to great lakes, snow-capped mountains, and the most extraordinary rock formations you’ve ever seen. When you travel Utah with Trafalgar, we’ll take you deep into the sandstone desert to discover the famous Mighty Five national parks of Zion, Canyonlands, Arches, Bryce Canyon and Capitol Reef, with spectacular hikes and viewpoints all the way. Our Utah tours also take you off-the-beaten track to gems like Kodachrome Basin, Goblin Valley and Coral Pink Sands, with ancient rock art, old pioneer history, and remnants of dinosaurs along the way. Whether you’re cruising down the All American Road, meeting locals in Moab, dining in style in Salt Lake City, or jumping into Lake Powell, Utah is a state that warms the soul.
Travel with us and unlock the infinite possibilities thanks to our exclusive Trafalgar Highlights.
