There is an irresistible lure to a desert slot canyon. At each bend and twist, a small clue to a vast secret is revealed one step at a time. Reflected canyon light illuminates the stillness, silence envelopes the spaces between footsteps and each echo fly’s down canyon on a search of its own.
Canyoneering is the exploration of this world of slot canyons, via hiking, scrambling, rappelling and sometimes wading and swimming. Southwestern Utah is widely considered to be one of the top Canyoneering destinations in the world, with everything from casual slots that can be done in a couple of hours to multi day wilderness canyons that offer every type of obstacle imaginable.
Our Canyoneering programs offer several beautiful slot canyons on both Bureau of Land management and Dixie National forest terrain, all of which are excellent introductions to the sport. We provide all the equipment, instruction and transportation, and take you step by step through the techniques that make moving through these labyrinth passages both possible and fun.
We specialize in tailored and intimate Canyoneering experiences for small groups. Each trip is an opportunity to share the wonders of this region and our appreciation of it. We thrive on each gasp of wonder.
If Canyoneering is the exploration of narrow depths, Deserteering is a traverse over a desert formation, like a butte or mesa. This differs, in that the skill set required may include hiking, scrambling, technical rock climbing, canyoneering, caving, rappelling and route finding through a confusing labyrinths of passages.
Our Deserteering programs feature access to locations that few have experienced, and intimate features of this slickrock landscape that will forever be locked in the silence of both the desert and your memory .
