If you’re planning a national park trip this year, be sure to pay attention! Here are 4 national parks that are requiring reservations this year.

Save this as a reminder, but this is subject to change. Be sure to carefully read the national park websites before your trip.

🏔️ Rocky Mountains: Timed entry will be required for the Rocky Mountains from May 26th to October 22nd this year.

There are two separate areas to pick from - one for Bear Lake Road and one for the park outside of Bear Lake Road (such as Trail Ridge Road). Bear Lake Road will require reservations from 5am to 6pm, while the rest of the park will only require reservations between 9am and 2pm.

60% of reservations will go on sale May 1st for the month of June, June 1st for the month of July, etc. And the other 40% will go on sale on the day before at 5PM.

🧊 Glacier: This one is a bit complicated and you’ll want to plan ahead. Reservations are needed from May 26th - Sept 10th from 6am to 3pm and you’ll need separate reservations for 4 different areas of the park.

Reservations go on sale March 1st for the month of July, April 1st for the month of August, etc. If you have a trip planned, make sure you log on right away - the June reservations sold out in minutes. More reservations will be released 24 hours in advance.

🌅 Acadia: You need a reservation to drive to the top of Cadillac Mountain from May 24th to October 22nd (no other reservations are required).

Reservations go on sale at 10am 2 days in advance. Be sure you’re ready to pounce, especially if you’re going for sunrise (which you should!). They sell out pretty much instantly.

🏜️ Arches: Timed entry is required at Arches from April 1 - October 31st. They are available 3 months in advance. So June reservations become available March 1st, July reservations are available April 1st, etc. Additional Reservations become available the day before at 6pm.

Reservations are required from 7am to 4pm, but you can enter before 7am without one. Which I recommend anyway to see the sunrise!

Are you planning a visit to any of these parks this year?

Replying to @johan_profe Answering one of the biggest questions I got about the W Trek in Patagonia - how much does it cost?

💸 The total for 2 people for 4 nights in the refugios with full room and board (includes breakfast, lunch and dinner), bus tickets to and from Puerto Natales to the park, a ferry at the end of the trek and entry into the national park came out to be $1,744 USD ($872 per person).

Here is the breakdown:

Night 1: El Chileno - $125 per person for the bed with sheets, $88 per person for the food

Night 2: Los Cuernos - $125 per person for the bed with sheets, $124 per person for the food (they charged extra for the meal because it was New Years Eve and they did something special!)

Night 3: Paine Grande - $92 per person for the bed with sheets, $61 per person for the food

Night 4: Gray - $92 per person for the bed with sheets, $61 per person for the food

⛴️ Ferry to return from Paine Grande and end the trek - $30 per person (cash only)

🚌 Bus Tickets on Bus Sur between Puerto Natales and the national park: $10 per person each way. There is also a shuttle between the entry to the park to the actual start of the trek that cost $5 per person (chilean pesos only)

🎟️ Entry ticket into the national park: $49 per person

🥂 Wifi and alcohol are available to purchase at all of the inns for additional fees.

Notes: I felt that Paine Grande and Gray were a lot nicer than the other two even though they are cheaper.

This does not include your travel down to Patagonia. Depending on if you can find a good flight and what your plans are before and after the trek, this can be a wide range of prices.

⛺️ Campgrounds are also offered, so you can save by camping or bringing your own food!

What do you think, is this more or less expensive than you thought?

The costs add up quickly, but I think it’s pretty reasonable when you consider how remote this area is!
