Self Drive Utah & Arizona

Hit the open road

Vast American states, Utah and Arizona are best explored by car, motorcycle or motorhome. A self-drive Utah and Arizona holiday gives you the freedom to stop at the many lookout points, visit ghost towns, photograph red-rock towers and hike through the desert. All at your own pace.

For direct flights from the UK, start your adventures in either Las Vegas or Salt Lake City. From here drives are 3 to 4 hours to the national parks. Once you are here, many of the parks offer free shuttles to the parks top spots, so you can easily take some time out of driving if you want a break from being behind the wheel.

Discover the high mountain meadows of the Mirror Lake Scenic Byway in Northern Utah and the unparalleled rock strata of Southern Utah's Capitol Reef Country Scenic Byway. Join parts of the Route 66 in Arizona and stop off at the Grand Canyon, a bucket list regular that has to be seen to be believed. 

A self-drive holiday in Utah & Arizona will reward you with inspiring landscapes and fascinating geology and with 2,200 miles of scenic byways that connect many of the national parks and monuments.
