Hoodoos - a spire-like rock formation that, when touched by the light, you see a kind of magic that only nature can conjure. These hoodoos bear the nickname “The Amphitheater,” and they can only be found in the iconic Bryce Canyon.

The whole of Paunsaugunt Plateau, hoodoos included, formed some 20 million years ago and looks eternally beautiful. Just as it is pleasing, it is also exciting and is ideal for adventures such as horse riding, hiking, and even ATV riding. Besides the plateau, different scenic trails for leisure hiking are available in Bryce Canyon National Park, such as Navajo Loop, Fairy Loop, and Queen’s Garden.

What makes your stay even more exciting are the yurts for rent surrounding the area - circular houses that are altogether unique, comfortable, and rustic. Bring your sense of adventure and stay at the best yurts near Bryce Canyon, Utah.
