We work with our network of partners to provide you the best local and authentic experience around. You can book these activities exclusively as part of the Zion Park retreat package.
Zion Park half-day hike
Together with your team, you will learn the history, geology, flora and fauna of Zion National Park from the expertise of a local guide. You’ll get advice about the nuances of the hiking trails, and the best times of day to do them. It’s recommended to bring water and snacks, sunscreen, a hat, closed-toe footwear (think light hiking boots) and a camera for your hike. The capacity is limited to 40 people, however, if your team is bigger the group can be divided into smaller ones to participate. As an added bonus, this hike can be made suitable for everyone as the level of difficulty can be adjusted.

Half-day photography tour
On this tour, a local professional photographer will accompany you and your colleagues, instructing you on how to get the best photos while experiencing all that Zion has to offer. Twice a day you can experience The Golden Hour, a time during sunrise or sunset when the warm light illuminates the park’s landscape in a beautiful glow. The light of dusk and dawn draw out some of the most vibrant colors of the desert. During this activity, you’ll visit iconic photographic locations and shoot some of the most dramatic landscapes of Zion National Park. This is a great way to improve your skills while sampling the many photo opportunities of Zion.
Visit Zion National Park Museum
Do you feel tired after hiking or cycling? Want to learn more about Zion National Park and its surrounding canyons? Why not grab your team members and visit the Zion National Park Museum? Here you’ll find over 300,000 documents, photographs, oral histories, slides, and maps related to topics ranging from how the park was founded to the Civilian Conservation Corps. Approximately 22,500 objects are housed in the natural history collection and 30,000 cultural history artifacts tell the stories of settlements in the region. You’ll want to book this activity in advance, the museum is open by appointment only!
Stargazing in Utah
Many American cities suffer from light pollution. That means, more than 80% of Americans live in a place where they cannot see the stars. Do you want to see the Milky Way? Luckily that isn’t a problem in Zion. Get together with your team for some stargazing! Utah is one of the best places to enjoy the clear night skies and there are plenty of places where you can go to relax and get a great view of the stars. Check the interactive map of the International Dark Sky Places Program for more details.
