Color Country Aerial Tours

A New Perspective and Scale

This southwest corner of Utah is chalk full of incredible views and beautiful scenery to take in. From Zion National Park to Snow Canyon State Park and everything in between, you will fall in love with this red rock desert. Most people typically use hiking or mountain biking as their mode of exploration, but this week we’re taking you to see all of these interesting places in a whole new way—8,000 feet in the air. Here are a few reasons why you absolutely must take this aerial tour with Color Country Aerial Tours.

Every time you fly somewhere new—whether it’s Colorado or Florida or even California—you probably try to catch a glimpse of the geography of the area out of those little oval windows. Imagine that level of coolness magnified by 50. That’s what a Color Country Aerial Tour offers you! In their little 4-man plane, you are surrounded by large windows that offer you a view in every direction.

It’s easy to take pictures and spy out all the desert mountains, canyons, reservoirs, and plateaus. You’ll never get to see Zion like this any other way. Something that really stands out is the upper section of Kolob Fingers, from an aerial view, it’s breathtaking.

So Much in So Little Time

There are several different 30-minute tours you can do as well as a 60-minute tour that covers all areas Color County Aerial Tours visits. Incase you weren’t aware, this area features one of the greatest national parks and four state parks that each have a unique and beautiful charm to them. It will blow you away how fast you’ll be able to take all of these sights in all in under an hour. It would normally taken you that long just to drive to some of them. It’s a really great opportunity to drink in everything awesome in this corner of paradise.

The Only Way to See Some Places

There was plenty of locations that are basically unreachable in Washington County. You might be able to ATV or hike into some of the remote areas but some are just too rugged for even that. That’s the beauty of being one with the birds in the sky; you can see some really secluded places with ease. And in this corner of Utah, there are some really cool secluded spots. An aerial tour like this really is a unique experience.
