This is one of Zion National Park‘s most famous and stunning day hikes! Explore the Virgin River and the amazing canyon it carved out of Zion’s towering sandstone walls over millions of years. This hike is almost entirely in water, walking on river rocks, with new and exciting scenery around every bend.
Our tour starts with water gear rentals (included) and a NPS shuttle to the start of our hike at the Temple of Sinawava. Then our Zion Narrows Day Hike takes us up the Riverside Walk trail where we begin a half-day excursion up the river to see some of the best “narrows” sections of the North Fork of the Virgin River. Your day will be ﬁlled with the towering walls of Zion, crystal clear spring water, brilliant red sandstone and rocks polished over tens of thousands of years. Lunch and snacks are included.
Please note: this hike may not be safe during spring runoff (March-May), active monsoons (July-September), and any time there is significant rain in the forecast. The timing of runoff and monsoons varies year by year and is impossible to predict with accuracy. If the runoff or weather forecast is unsafe on the date of your hike we will reroute to a different tour, such as Angels Landing or Zion in a Day.
