Salt lake city is the best outdoorsy big city in America, with easy access to skiing, climbing, hiking, biking, and — because of the lake from which it got its name — even on-water activities. These combine to make SLC the perfect basecamp for your Utah adventures, and these are the top Airbnb Salt Lake City rentals to host your stay.

We hope you love the Airbnb Salt Lake City rentals we recommend! Just so you know, Matador may collect a small commission from the links on this page if you decide to book a stay. Listed prices are accurate as of the time of publication.
