When is the best time to travel to Utah?
Every season in Utah has its benefits! Spring time is the most popular time to visit as the weather is at it’s peak. Fall and Winter are also beautiful in Utah as the weather is cool, parks are less crowded, & hotel rates are lower. The summer months are great for water activities when the rivers are at their peaks to escape the heat.

What type of clothing should I wear?
Layers! Light-weight layers made of technical fabrics are best. Pants that convert into shorts also work well in the desert. Brimmed hat and sunglasses will add additional protection from the sun. We send out a detailed packing list to all travelers 30-days before your tour departs.

We suggest light-weight, breathable, flexible hiking boot with ankle support. Additionally, you will want to add several pairs of socks, designed for desert hiking; breathable, wicking, technical fabrics work best.

We recommend a soft-sided, light-weight suitcase, convertible duffle, or backpack. Also, consider bringing a camera bag, small day pack, or fanny pack as well.

We walk approximately 3 miles per day, not necessarily consecutively. There are elevation changes and there is uneven ground on some of the trails.

No, hiking with the group is not mandatory.
Can we do longer hikes if we wanted to?
Yes, just speak with your guide and they can make recommendations. They may not be able to accompany you but they can advise you where/when to hike if you want further.
How much time do we spend in each National Park?
You will spend a minimum of 2-3 hours in each park, on average 3-4 hours.
Does Utah Luxury Tours have any age restrictions?
We do not have any age restrictions for our tours, however, we ask that parents know their children’s hiking abilities. If children are able to hike and keep up with the group they are welcome on our tour.

The average gratuity should be somewhere between $10 – $15 per day, per person on a small group tour. For example, one couple on a six day tour approximately $20 – $30 total per day times six days is roughly $120 – $180 for the six day tour.
