Angel’s Landing is a rock formation and one of the most unique and spectacular hikes in Zion National Park. The trail will take us on a 5.4-mile journey through steep switchbacks, steep drop-offs on both sides, and an exposed spine, until we reach a narrow sandstone ridge with jaw-dropping views. Angel’s Landing is not for the faint of heart, as its exposed sections and holding onto a chain will make anyone weak in the knees. However, with a super experienced guide alongside you—who will not only make sure you feel confident walking along such sections, but will tell you all about Zion National Park, its history, and much more—you’ll be in good hands. You also won’t have to worry about your permit; your guides will obtain one for you as well. Discover the beauty of Zion by hiking the Angel’s Landing: the whole hike takes approximately 6-7 hours.

We had such a great time on both of our tours in the Narrows with Nick and on Angel’s Landing with AJ! Both guides were friendly, outgoing and informative which added that little something extra to our adventures. We would highly recommend!

We are so glad we booked a guided hike to Angel’s Landing instead of trying to do it ourselves. Not only did we get easy access to permits, we got an incredible amount of information about what we were seeing in terms of geology, plants, and animals. We also got expert guidance on the technical sections, which were icy. That alleviated my fears as a parent and allowed me to more fully enjoy the experience. Our guide, Grant, was incredibly knowledgeable and a genuinely nice person. Can’t recommend highly enough!

We spent two days with Grant from Zion guide hub and couldn’t have asked for a better guide. Not only did he navigate us through the narrows and get us to the top of angels landing safely, he also pointed out things we would have never noticed. He shared with a wealth of knowledge about the history of the park, nature, and hiking we didn’t know we needed, but are so grateful to have. Everyone we encountered was envious of our guide and rightfully so. We will definitely be back!

Grant and Matt (guide in training) took us to the top of angels landing and educated us on the history of Zion national park along the way. While some stretches were scary Grant kept us going. No chance do we finish without him.

Lindsey was an awesome guide for our hike to Angels Landing. She was knowledgeable, fun and I felt safe with her. I highly recommend Zion Guide Hub especially if you do not win a permit.

  • Anyone who hikes Angel’s Landing needs a permit. The park uses a lottery system for guides to allocate permits, so this tour isn’t available every day. Your guides have obtained permits for hiking this trail, with dates currently available until June. This means that you do not have to enter the lottery yourself.

    Please note that commercial permits for the second part of the year have not yet been released by the park. Available dates for July through December dates will be published as soon as your guides secure the permits. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out.

    Min. age requirements

      • If you are older than 18, you’re good to go.
      • Minors younger than 18 who are fit enough to tackle this hike may join, but must be in the presence of a parent or legal guardian.

    If your group has hikers under the age of 18, contact us prior to booking to make arrangements.

  • To get to your Angel’s Landing guided tour, you first have to reach Zion National Park. Most people fly into Las Vegas Airport (LAS) or Salt Lake City (SLC). From there, you can either rent a car or take a shuttle service to reach Zion National Park—it will take you anywhere between 2.5 to 4 hours.

    Once there, get on the Zion Canyon Shuttle—they leave every few minutes either from Zion Canyon Visitor Center or Temple of Sinawava. You’ll get off The Grotto Stop (number 6). This is the starting point for several trails, including the Angel’s Landing.

  • We highly recommend that you cover all your bases with both emergency medical and travel insurance.

    With medical insurance, if you have an accident or medical emergency on or off the mountain, you’ll avoid paying out of pocket for costly expenses. This covers everything from hospital treatments to emergency air transportation and more. Travel insurance covers canceled flights, natural disasters and other scenarios that may interrupt your travel plans.

    We also expect you to respect local regulations and take measures to protect yourselves, your guides, and the communities you’re traveling to. If you need assistance selecting the right insurance for your group, let us know and we will be happy to help!

  • Cancel within 48 hours of booking your trip for free, no questions asked. If you need to change your plans up to 31 days ahead of your scheduled adventure, we offer a full refund on most trips. Within 31 days we offer free date changes or the option to convert your booking to credit to use on any 57hours adventure at a later date.
