What Guests are Saying
two cyclists posing with their bikes at Bryce and Zion National Park

This was our third Trek Travel trip and we absolutely loved it. The elevation makes the riding a little challenging as there's quite a bit of climbing, but there are always places to stop and soak in the view while you get your breath back. I highly recommend this trip - you will take amazing photos and make amazing memories!

Three cyclists ride on a road with mesa rock formations in the background

We originally picked Trek travel because we have Trek bikes. Trek Travel is every bit complementary, perhaps even better! We were blessed with four exceptional guides who worked behind the scenes to make the trip phenomenal. With Trek taking care of all the logistics you can focus exclusively on the sights.

Trip Inclusions

Additional Details

Know Before You Go!

We want you to be fully prepared for your cycling vacation of a lifetime. This involves making sure that you choose the appropriate trip for you and that every aspect of your experience is flawless. Each Trek Travel trip is unique to ensure maximum enjoyment every time.

Your Trip Need to Knows:

  • Zion National Park: Biking is a great way to experience the park, but for your safety, cycling through the Zion-Mount Carmel Tunnel is closed to cyclists and thereby will require all riders to shuttle through the tunnel.
  • The Narrows: Due to seasonal snow fall and water levels, the Narrows may be closed to hiking during Spring trips. If it is closed during your trip, our guides will provide optimal iconic hikes as an alternate.
  • Packing: Layers! Layering is the best way to regulate your body temperature. This tried-and-true strategy is all about slipping layers on and off as your activity level or the weather changes.

FAQs

On our Bryce Canyon and Zion Bike Tour, you'll enjoy a desert climate, meaning it varies. It is generally warm to hot during the day (60-100ºF/ 16-38ºC) but can get downright cold at night (30-50ºF/1-10ºC), depending upon the month. Light layers and a wind/waterproof shell are good for the day. Warm layers are recommended for the cold nights, especially mid-week when we stay at 8,000 feet (2,430 m) elevation. Bring along some cool weather cycling gear just in case. View our Packing List
