Salt Lake City is the primary gateway to Arches, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef and Bryce Canyon national parks in Utah, as well as Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks. Salt Lake City International Airport serves seven airlines and their affiliates and more than 600 scheduled daily flights, with nearly 90 cities offering nonstop flights.
As long as you're flying into Salt Lake, you should know that you're landing in an internationally renowned city that is a top travel and business destination with award-winning performing arts companies, world-class shopping and distinctive cuisine. Utah's capital city is also at the center of a craft-beer renaissance.
On the way to your destination, there are many cultural and scenic side trips to consider, whether you're driving south to Utah's Mighty 5® or north toward Yellowstone. For more information on the Salt Lake to Yellowstone trip, you may download an activity sheet and map here.
Travelers to Zion National Park may elect to fly in through Las Vegas, though a roundtrip itinerary from Zion to Arches may benefit from a Salt Lake arrival.
