127 Hours, Filming, Utah, James Franco, Aron Ralston, Moab

Filming 127 Hours

This Academy Award nominated film was primarily shot in the Moab area and tells the story of mountain climber Aron Ralston (played by James Franco) who became trapped in a slot canyon in Southern Utah.

127 Hours

Following the release of the Danny Boyle-directed film 127 Hours, the Utah Office of Tourism has announced downloadable 127-hour itineraries. The film, shot on location in the state's majestic red rock country, depicts the story of hiker Aron Ralston's 127-hour, life-changing journey in Utah's Bluejohn Canyon. The cinematographic masterpiece, already generating Oscar buzz, brings the state's diverse landscape to life for movie-goers worldwide.

Not only do the featured itineraries include southern Utah, where the movie was primarily filmed, but they also include suggested activities and excursions throughout the state. From jet-boating on the Colorado River and hiking Arches National Park, to the exploring historic towns of Cannonville and Tropic, to skiing the Greatest Snow on Earth® at all 14 of Utah's ski resorts, these itineraries are jammed-packed with activities for travelers of all ages, and for any time of year.
