Discover Utah's peaks with a trip to Orem

Orem touts itself as a wholesome, happy family destination, where the air is clean and the mountains are pure. The reality isn't too different, what with the icy tops of Mount Timpanogos peaking over the town and the shimmering waters of Utah Lake spreading out in front. But homey vibes are just half the story, because the rustic timber cabins and sprawling ski lodges that are on offer when it comes to Orem vacation rentals can also be a springboard to ski fields and hiking trails, and all the greater wonders of the Wasatch Range.

Orem comes with guided tours and mountains

Visitors attracted by Orem's family vibes will be happy to discover innovative digital city tours that allow you to navigate the old pioneer buildings and 18th-century relics of the Provo Valley at your own pace. Others will love the marked hiking trails that weave into the mountains from the Wasatch Front. Others will enjoy hitting Lake Utah on pedalboats or jet skis to get the adrenaline flowing. And that's not even mentioning the excellent skiing opportunities you can get by settling for Orem vacation rentals close to Sundance.

Enjoy the great outdoors in Orem

As the Provo Canyon cuts into the heart of the Wasatch Range it reveals the hidden wonders that every visitor to Orem simply must go and see. There are the crashing Bridal Veil Falls, the dank Timpanogos Caves, the snow fields of Timpanogos peak, and – right at the end of the gorge – the famous ski and mountain resort of Sundance. Back in the town center and there's the Orem Heritage Museum to help unravel the story of the region, and Nielsen's Grove, which chronicles the influence of Danish immigrants in Utah.

Choose the sun or snow in Orem

Deciding on when to come to Orem will depend on exactly what it is you want to do. If it's the ski fields of Sundance that have you checking Orem vacation rentals in the mountains, then you'll need to book between December and March, when the cable cars are swinging and the snow parks in action. For hiking and sightseeing, the summertime between June and September is probably the best. Then, you can expect long days of warm weather for hitting the open trails.

Natural beauty abounds around Orem

Lakes and mountains are the main scenery around Orem. You won't have to search far to find vast wildernesses where glaciers carve through craggy summits, or where ski fields drop down to thick forests of fir. Like a hidden Shangri-La, the Manti-La Sal National Forest hides to the south of Orem, offering bear-trodden plateaus and deep canyons where the creeks are maintained by beavers. Over the ridges to the east is the vast Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest, with its blooming alpine meadows and turquoise-hued mountain lakes.
