Thousands of square miles of untouched scenery surround Amangiri, which lies at the gateway to major national parks in the Colorado Plateau. From canyoneering and cultural insights to excursions by air, bike, boat or on horseback, guests are encouraged to discover the region their way. Long-standing relationships with local experts allow Amangiri to arrange tailor-made itineraries for every guest – a bespoke approach that guarantees a creative, adventurous and fulfilling experience.
Designated hiking trails
Guests are welcome to explore the property at their own pace along the 12 miles of designated trails. Trails are marked by signs, wayfinding posts and rock cairns. They vary in length and difficulty and offer beautiful views of the property as well as the opportunity to uncover archaeological and natural wonders. Amangiri’s experienced guides can also escort guests through some of the most striking geological features of the Colorado Plateau.
The Via Ferrata Challenge and Cave Peak Stairway
Invented centuries ago in the Italian Alps, a Via Ferrata (‘iron road’) is a series of cables and ladder rungs, fixed to the rock face to enable the ascent of steep mountain routes. The climbs and drops can be an adrenaline ride, but Via Ferratas also offer an opportunity to get up close to the fascinating geology of the terrain.
Well suited to thrill-seekers, the Cave Peak Stairway has 120 steps and is a unique installation raising 400 feet (122 metres) above the ground. Amangiri's guests are invited to take to the stairs after completing the Cave Peak Via Ferrata and will be rewarded with an incredible panorama from the top. With an unmatched vertical route of ascent, a spectacular position, and a summit visible from the resort, it is destined to be an iconic and exhilarating adventure.
Serene and awe-inspiring, slot canyons are a geological marvel and easily accessible from Amangiri.
Explore Lake Powell
Navigate the vast reservoir of Lake Powell by kayak or jet-ski, take a stand-up paddleboard across the glassy waters, or explore from the comfort of a boat on a full- or half-day tour of the lake, its picturesque side canyons and secluded sandy beaches.
The Colorado plateau on horseback
Explore the sweeping Utah desert with Amangiri’s seasoned wranglers. Riding trails available both in the area immediately around the resort and beyond. More challenging rides include ridge-top hacks high above the maze of ridges and canyons.
With the highest concentration of national parks in America, the Colorado Plateau offers endless opportunities to explore the likes of Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park by air, by car and on foot. Amangiri’s in-house and local guides can develop custom itineraries of any length to suit guest’s interests and preferred form of transport.
Flying over this incredible landscape – by plane, helicopter, or on a sunrise balloon trip – is an inspiring way to discover the breadth of the backcountry. Working closely with the area’s best pilots, Amangiri enables guests to experience the awe-inspiring scale of Canyon Country from on high.
The Colorado Plateau offers immersive encounters beyond the purely physical. Held throughout the year, Amangiri’s ever-expanding collection of cultural experiences offers guests the unique opportunity to learn more about the ecology, geology and human history of the area as well as the rich traditions of neighboring Native American tribes.
