Green & Chic | Sundance Resort, Provo, Utah

One of North America’s pioneers of eco-friendly hotels, Sundance Resort in was conceived with minimizing its negative imprint on the immediate environment, back in 1969 when land for the resort was purchased.

Sundance Resort, in North Fork Provo Canyon in Utah, is probably more famous for its owner – Hollywood former leading man and director, Robert Redford – who has been leading in his conservation and community-led endeavors since stepping away from Hollywood limelight some two decades ago.

This is the perfect venue for a rustic yet chic destination wedding or honeymoon anytime of the year. The atmosphere is romantic, and adventure options abound. Winter is perfect for skiing and snowboarding, and the rest of the year you can hike, bike, horseback ride, even kayak down the river. If you’re not the adventurous type, fret not. Relax at the spa or unleash your creative side at the art shack workshop. The restaurants offer 5-star dining and terrific wine list.
