Full description

Discover Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks on a self-guided, self-driving tour. Learn about the history of the park and enjoy countless panoramic views of stunning scenary.

Begin at the Springdale Visitor Center. As you drive, you’ll hear the history of the park, how it got its unusual name, then stop by a vista from which the impressive Altar of Sacrifice, Sundial, and West Temple are all clearly visible.

Start by downloading the Action Tour Guide app that will function as your personal guide, audio tour, and map all in one.

After that, drive past the towering Sentinel and hear how a tremendous earthquake totally transformed this mountain. At the next viewpoint, you’ll see the Patriarchs, a trio of mountains so gorgeous that people used to think pictures of them just had to be fake. Continue past sparkling waterfalls with emerald pools at their base. Then you’ll see Angel’s Landing, a precarious, death-defying hike famous both for its staggering views and for the danger involved in getting to them. Up next is Weeping Rock, a cliff face that constantly “weeps” and gives life to a little oasis at its base. Then it’s on to The Narrows, a one-of-a-kind river hike that’s perfect for photo ops. Travel along the Riverwalk and hear about the ancient petroglyphs left behind by the people who once called this area home. When you head next through the Zion-Mount Carmel Tunnel, you’ll get the full story of the conflict between the Mormons and the Paiute tribe. After you pass the totally strange Checkerboard Mesa, you’ll arrive at the East Entrance Ranger Station, where your tour will conclude. Your journey through Bryce Canyon begins at the park’s entrance and continues on to Fairyland Point, a lovely overlook offering your first glimpse at the kind of beauty that’s in store. Next, pause at Sunrise Point and get your first look at the mysterious hoodoos which make this park famous. After that, of course, is Sunset Point, the perfect sister to Sunrise Point. As you continue on toward Inspiration Point, you’ll uncover how this astonishing landscape formed in the first place. Then revisit the story of the first Mormon pioneers who arrived here and declared this place their new home. After that, you’ll visit Swamp Canyon Overlook, which hides some seriously stunning views behind its modest name. Get the facts about the connection Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid have with this park before visiting a natural arch. Then it’s on to a couple of canyons guaranteed to take your breath away with their sweeping views and lush interiors, plus a mythical tale of malevolent water spirits which the Paiute once believed occupied these rivers. The final landmark on the tour is the beautiful Rainbow Point.

The app runs automatically once you start it. I didn't realize it at first (thought I had to keep clicking the icon). Once I realized that it was really nice. The map adds the perfect addition to the audio directions and the information in the narration was very informative. Am considering the Yellowstone version for next year!
