Cayons of Utah: Zion & Bryce
Trip Overview
Discover the heart of canyon country through your lens on this photographic excursion into Zion and Bryce National Parks. We’ll explore the delicate and colorful slot canyons of Zion National Park as well as the ancient weather-worn hoodoo rock formations of Bryce Canyon.

Depending which season you join us in we’ve timed this excursion to coincide with the brilliant Autumn foliage change within Zion Canyon in the Fall or the desert wildflowers in springtime. Our guides have been hiking & photographing in Southern Utah for well over a decade and we have designed this itinerary to arrive at just the right moment for ideal lighting conditions and photographic opportunities.

This landscape photography oriented expedition will put you and your lens in front of some of the most iconic and spectacular rock formations that Southern Utah has to offer. We’ll photograph the mouth of the Zion Narrows (and hike it on the “hiker” trip, Photograph Angel’s Landing and squeeze through the most dramatic slot canyons in Utah. We’ll also photograph and hike the Bryce Canyon’s unique and otherworldly hoodoo formations. After dinner we may venture out to capture brilliant, star-filled skies above Bryce Canyon.  After long days in the field, we’ll retreat to our comfortable lodges near Zion Canyon and on the rim of Bryce!

  • A Great Expereince!

    What a great experience! The trip was well-organized from start to finish. Great photography locations from deep jungle to beach to river boat to night hikes. The schedule kept us busy but never hectic, and the accommodations were super comfortable. Shout out to our guide Ben - we saw so much wildlife! I'd highly recommend a trip with them.


  • In October I traveled with BCJ to Joshua Tree Natl Park for their night sky photography trip. This was my third trip with BCJ and I just reserved another trip. I keep coming back to this company because of the great experiences I'm having. I love the small groups and excellent guides. 


  • This was my first trip with Backcountry Journeys. It was excellent, and I have since booked two more trips. The itinerary, and the guides were excellent.
