LODGING

We are lucky to call the Stone Canyon Inn of Tropic, Utah our luxury basecamp for the trip! Only 20 minutes from the Bryce Canyon National Park visitors center. We've reserved four guest cabins (for up to 6 people each) outfitted with private decks, full kitchens and two bedrooms (one with a king bed, one with a queen bed), two bathrooms and a sofa bed in the living room. So there's plenty of room for friends and/or family to join you on the trip!

Note: The trip price is based on double occupancy in each 2-bedroom cabin (1 person in each bedroom). You can save money by inviting your friends or family to join you on the trip. The cabins can sleep up to 6 people.

The full kitchen has a refrigerator, stove/oven, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, coffeemaker and is stocked with pots/pans/dishes. The private deck has a gas BBQ grill and hot tub.

March 4: Arrival Day

We gather at Salt Lake City International Airport and begin the journey towards Bryce. Please book a morning flight that arrives by 10am.  The drive will be broken up with a lunch and coffee break. When ready, we continue to the Stone Canyon Inn to unpack and settle in. We conclude the night with a family-style meal, prepared for you by your Fit 4 Adventure guides.

 

          Drive Time: 4-4.5 hours

          Dinner: Home-cookin’ at the Inn

 

March 5: Bryce Canyon National Park

Early risers will appreciate the sunrise from their private decks before breakfast. We pack lunches for the day and take a quick 20-minute drive to Bryce Canyon National Park. The views from the rim alone, sitting above 8,000 feet, are spectacular. But we go further, of course, and use the morning to make our first descent down into the canyon. From there, we meet up with a group of local park rangers and are led down the trail of their choice for a guided snowshoe hike. No experience necessary! If the snow is too light for snowshoeing, we will pivot onto the epic Figure 8 trail, a trail that links together the best of the park’s top three trails: Queen’s Garden, Peekaboo Loop and Navajo Loop. To wrap up the day, we head to Mossy Cave, a grotto where large icicles gather in the wintertime and dazzle.

 

          Morning Hike: Queen’s Garden Trail (3.6 miles) or Figure 8 Loop trail (6.8 miles)

          Afternoon activities: Ranger-led snowshoe hike and Mossy Cave Trail (0.8 miles)

          Lunch: Sack lunches provided

          Dinner: Home-cookin’ at the Inn

March 6: Bryce Canyon National Park

Today will challenge our quads as we hike back down into the canyon and away from any crowds on the Fairyland Loop Trail. The isolated beauty of this loop trail is amplified as you walk among the hoodoos outside of the Bryce Canyon Amphitheatre. A spur trail takes us to the Tower Bridge formation, which actually does look impressively like London’s Tower Bridge! After another fabulous communal meal at the inn, guests can use their evening to stargaze with the F4A guides (or from the jacuzzi!), read by the fire or anything they please. A night to enjoy time without tasks or distractions.

          Scheduled Hike: Fairyland Loop Trail (8 miles)

          Lunch: Sack lunches provided

          Dinner: Home cookin’ at the Inn

 

March 7: Cedar Breaks National Monument

For our final day of outdoor exploration, we drive 1 hour west to Cedar Breaks National Monument for a day of backcountry snowmobiling and snow sports! A private, local guide will lead us through the winter landscape of Cedar Breaks, a ‘little sister’ to Bryce Canyon, which sits 2,000 feet HIGHER than Bryce and is home to similar geological features, including those funky hoodoos. In the winter months, it is only accessible by ski or snowmobile - so let’s go! A cross-country ski lesson will be offered for those electing to try out Nordic skiing. Lucky for us, the only fine-dining around is owned and operated by the same owners of the Stone Canyon Inn. Once we clean up, we’ll gather at the Stone Hearth Grill, just a stone’s throw away from the cabins, for a farewell dinner.

          Morning Activity: 1.5 hour guided snowmobile tour

          Lunch: Winter picnic provided by your F4A guides

          Afternoon Activity: 2 hour cross-country ski outing or snowshoe hike

          Dinner: Farewell dinner at the Stone Hearth Grill

March 8: Travel Day

We hit the road back to Salt Lake City for flights home. Be sure to book a flight that departs after 2pm to allow for driving and check-in. We will stop for coffee and snacks so long as time permits!

 

Drive Time: approximately 4.5 Hours
