Aug 15, 2023

Summer is a popular time to book an adventure with Utah Luxury Tours. But while the summer may be coming to an end, our tours aren’t!

If you’re hoping to squeeze another adventure into 2023, there’s still plenty of time to book some of our best national park tours. Of course, you can always schedule a private custom tour. But if you want to join one of our Scheduled Departure tours, keep reading. We’re bringing you some of the best national park tours you can still book this fall.

Annular Solar Eclipse 2023 Utah

Perhaps the most unique tour to enjoy before the end of 2023 is our Annular Solar Eclipse 2023 Utah tour. This tour is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to enjoy an annular solar eclipse as it crosses some of the Southwest’s most beautiful national parks. 

At Utah Luxury Tours, we’ve combined some of our best national park tours with the opportunity to view the eclipse from an incredible location in Bryce Canyon National Park. We’re actually hosting two Scheduled Departure Tours for this special event.

The Las Vegas Annular Eclipse Tours

The Las Vegas Annular Eclipse Tour will include tours of some of Northern Nevada and Southern Utah’s most popular national and state parks. You’ll tour Zion National Park, Valley of Fire State Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, and Kodachrome State Park. The final full day of the tour will include a viewing of the Annular Solar Eclipse from Bryce Canyon.

Rocky Mountaineer & The Ring of Fire Tour

This next annular eclipse tour will combine an exciting train tour with some of our best national park tours. You’ll travel between Denver and Moab on the Rocky Mountaineer, where you’ll see some views you can only see on the trails. You’ll stay overnight in Glenwood Springs, before returning to Utah for the rest of your tour.

Explore Canyonlands and Arches National Park, before moving on to Bryce Canyon National Park, where you’ll view the annular solar eclipse as it passes over the park’s famous hoodoos.

Halloween in Moab

Want to spend a spooky Halloween in Moab? We still have spots available on our popular Mighty 5 Scheduled Departure Tour for Monday, October 30 to Sunday, November 5!

This seven-day tour includes Moab excursions, epic national park tours, and more. You’ll get to see all five of the Utah Mighty 5, as well as a number of state parks and other destinations, like Goblin Valley and Dead Horse Point. This tour begins and ends in Salt Lake City, Utah. This is one of the best national park tours for seniors or guests of all ages.

Mighty 5+ Adventure Tours

For a more adventurous take on our classic Mighty 5 Tour, the Mighty 5+ Adventure Tour is a great choice. This active, eight-day guided tour includes many of the same highlights of the other tour, but with plenty of adventure packed in! You’ll hike famous trails like Mesa Arch, The Narrows, Scout Lookout, Angel’s Landing, and more. 

Guests of this tour should be comfortable with moderate to strenuous hikes, and be ready to be on the move all day. While the Mighty 5 Tour is one of the best national park tours for seniors or younger, this tour is a better choice for those looking for a physical challenge.

There are still spaces available for our Mighty 5+ Adventure Tour that runs from Monday, October 2 to Monday, October 9. This tour begins and ends in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Grand Canyon, Zion and Bryce Triple Canyon Triple Canyon

The Triple Canyon Tour includes the Grand Canyon, Zion, and Bryce Canyon. This six-day tour will include the highlights of each of these iconic national parks. You’ll stand on the rim of the Grand Canyon, meander through the narrow slot canyon of Zion National Park, and see Bryce Canyon’s famous natural amphitheater and towering hoodoos.

There are still two dates available for this tour in 2023. The first kicks off soon, running from Monday, September 18 to Saturday, September 23. The second runs from Monday, October 16 to Saturday, October 21. There are also additional dates for this tour in 2024 if you can’t catch one of our tours this fall.

Yellowstone and Grand Teton

While many of our best national park tours focus on Utah’s famous national parks, this next tour will take you to the North. The Yellowstone and Grand Teton tour is a seven-day adventure that takes guests on an epic journey through two of the nation’s most beautiful national parks. 

You’ll see the majestic beauty of the Grand Teton National Park and the spouting geysers and wildlife of Yellowstone. Watch Old Faithful erupt, cruise Jenny Lake on a boat ride, take a stroll around the largest alpine lake in North America, and more.

There is just one more opportunity to join this tour in 2023, from Monday, September 18 to Sunday, September 24. But if you can’t make it, don’t fret! There are two dates to choose from in 2024 as well.
