There is no kayaking or rafting in Bryce Canyon National Park. However, there are plenty of opportunities to kayak and raft at  Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. Glen Canyon is about three to four hours away from Bryce Canyon. There are great kayaking opportunities on Lake Powell in particular. Kayak Powell offers guided tours and rentals. Safe adventures!

You're right! It looks like the folks who published that story have taken it off of their website.

Here's some other content that might help, though.

1) An overview of the Grand Circle

2) Visiting the Grand Circle on a Budget

Hope you have a wonderful trip!

That is a question that has more answers than the Internet can provide : )

Our site's Yellowstone Pages has a "things to do" section that is fairly consistent with most people's top interests.  You can also visit the West Yellowstone Chamber site for more insights.  Definitely hit the IMAX theater in West on your way into the park (if you head in that direction!)

There's usually whitewater rafting at most national parks. Both Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks offer something in the line of whitewater rafting, kayaking and canoeing. To get more information on this, I'd suggest contacting your local AAA club for travel books/maps/guides or you can check online under a search "whitewater rafting Utah". Enjoy your time in Utah, it's a lovely state!

The regions North of the Yukon River, all the way to the Arctic, are the worst for mosquitos in general.  The worst time of year to go is in July, however you are likely to encounter them as soon temperatures remain above freezing for a couple of weeks.

You can bring repellant, but the stuff that repels the best is bad for your skin and clothes, and will contain a measured amount of deet.  Since I personally prefer to not to crop dust myself, you can purchase netting to go around your hat or head, and maintain long sleeves and pants throughout the day. 

If you still get bit, don't scratch!

There are many fantastic things to see in Yellowstone, and there is no "right amount" of time to spend there.  I am not exactly sure what you mean by "four areas", since there are many separate geologic and ecologic features within Yellowstone. 


To give you some ideas, a day should be more than enough time to explore the geyser basins between West Thumb and Madison Junction.  This is the area of highest concentration of geysers and thermal features, including Old Faithful and the Grand Prismatic Spring.  The total driving time is an hour, depending on traffic, but you could spend a full day walking through at least five major geyser basins. 

Many sections of the park could be explored in this way on a leisurely schedule over the course of a week.  If you like to go boating, you can pick up a boat permit at several locations around the park, or you can rent a rowboat or outboard at Bridge Bay Marina.  For more on boating in Yellowstone, click here.

Whatever amount of time you spend in Yellowstone, there are some fantastic sights to see.  Different times of year will also lend to different activities.  If you are planning a Winter trip, you will be seeing the park differently than in the summer. Point being, there is no perfect amount of time that will allow you to see everything, or enough of the park to be satisfied. 

Every time I go to Yellowstone, I am stuck wanting to see more!

My family of six- (four kids ages 17, 14, 10, and 7) were able to see all of yellowstones major attractions in a week without a problem at all.  In fact we only spent three whole days in the park and had a great time.  However, we went in June and it snowed the whole time.  We were in tents but luckily on a last minute whim I had the kids all throw in their snow gear.  The benefit was there was not any traffic at all to speak of and we saw every animal we wanted including Bears, moose, elk, wolves, buffolo and more.

Absolutely! I spent four days (one day on each loop) and then three days in the Tetons. The pass covers 7 days. You could do any combination. Spend 5 days in Yellowstone and hit 2 days in Tetons or spend all 7 in Yellowstone (although it would be sad to be that close to the Grand Tetons and not see them). One variable is that I went in May when the park was not at its busiest. Enjoy!

Yes, by June it will be over 100 degree's F in the inner canyon. Start as early as possible, this is also best for beautiful sinrise colors. If you go to the bottom and back in one day, stay at the Phantom Ranch area during the day and then hike back up in the late afternoon. Its a 5000 foot elevation drop into the canyon, take plenty of water, snacks and your camera. The hike down is easy, but the hike out can be, unless you are a excellent hiker, much harder and strenous. Hike down the South Kaibab trail to the bottom for the best views and sunrise shots, then take the Bright Angel trail back up. It has a water stop every mile and a half to the top once you get to Indian Gardens Campground.

Look for wildlife, big horn sheep, mule deer, ravens,squirrels and maybe even a rattlesnake (rarely seen).

Another way to do the trip down and out is by mule. The way in is about the same, but on the way out the mule will do all the walking/climbing while you are ree to look around and enjoy the scenery...
