Tours Of Bryce Canyon Available Starting In Las Vegas

Each year thousands of people begin the process of planning trips to the great national parks of the American southwest, and each year thousands of people abandon those plans as the reality of the situation sets in. Basically, flying from your home to the area surrounding most national parks is more difficult than you would think, and flying to the closest major airports leaves you with hours of driving before you will ever reach the park. For this reason, many will never experience the beauty of many parks like Bryce.

Bryce Canyon National Park is located in Utah, and is roughly 4 hours driving distance from both Las Vegas and Salt Lake City, which represent the closest major airports. While there are other airports that are closer, the majority of them are small and cannot accept traffic from major carriers or large planes. This severely limits the amount of flights available, and increases the prices of flights significantly. In addition to this, once you are on the ground in most of these small towns there is limited choices for hotels and restaurants, with even less in the form of entertainment. This is why most visitors to Bryce Canyon choose to leave from Las Vegas, arranging their trip as part of a larger vacation. Las Vegas is specifically set up to cater to tourists and has far more in terms of hotels and entertainment than other cities. Most people who are not locals in the southwest will choose to fly into Las Vegas and stay a few days before embarking on their trip to Bryce.

There are several professional tour companies offering tours of Bryce Canyon that leave from Las Vegas. These companies are generally very accommodating and will go as far as to pick you up at a major hotel and drop you off at the same place. The tours are usually scheduled to include several other parks like Zion or the Grand Canyon, so as to maximize the experience while minimizing the driving time. The four hour trip to the area makes more sense to travel another hour or so to get to another park than simply driving back to the original location. This will also provide those who are looking for a completely unique experience the ability to camp in the park. Allowing a professional tour company to take care of the details of your Bryce tour is the way to go.
