  • "Island in the Sky" is the northernmost area of the vast Canyonlands National Park, certainly the most famous and the most accessible of the Park. The area is easily accessible from the nearby town of Moab (UT) in about 45 min via a scenic route that climbs on the plateau. Despite the beauty of the Park, the area is very quiet and less frequented than the chaotic Grand Canyon and this is definitely a plus point! Spectacular various view point with sweeping views over the river Colodaro River incision masterpiece and Green River.

  • Of Moab in the immediate vicinity there are two major national parks, which are absolutely gorgeous. The Canyonlands NP is, in addition to the more famous arch NP, but certainly worth a visit. The park entrance to Iceland in the sky offer the most flexible of the 3 possible Park entrances, which are not connected to each other with a street. The vast expanse on this high plateau is fantastic. With his famous brother, the Grand Canyon, Canyonlands a comparison does not need to fear. For people who have more time, there are a large number of single - or multi-day tours in the area. The visitor center is happy to assist you in planning for such activities.
