We specialize in guided canyoneering, rock climbing, hiking, and instructional courses. We are based in southwest Utah and the Zion National Park region. Our guides are safe, friendly, professional and fun. We believe your guide is the most important component of your trip. We routinely customize trips for families, couples, and groups of differing abilities.

All our trips are private. Trips are available seven days a week year round.  All necessary equipment is included. Our trips start in most Zion National Park lodging locations: Springdale, Zion National Park Campgrounds, LaVerkin, Eastside lodging options, and Mount Carmel Jct. Trip times and starting locations are finalized at the time of reservation. All types of trips may not be available at all starting locations.  Contact us for more information.

Take a look at our guided canyoneering trips.


Canyoneering trips descend slot canyons and explore the wild landscapes of Utah. Guided trips are fast paced with an emphasis on doing. Rappelling is a part of every trip along with hiking, scrambling, stemming, sometimes wading and swimming. Trips visit many different canyons depending on starting location, season, and canyon conditions.

Courses are appropriate for guests intending to do canyoneering routes on their own. Instructional courses have an emphasis on teaching. Canyoneering on your own should be taken very seriously. Canyoneering routes are flood paths that involve one way commitment characteristics, large vertical drops, difficult to access areas, and complex navigation. Click here for instructional courses.

Trip Locations

Zion area trips take place on lands managed by Kane County BLM, Washington County BLM, Dixie National Forest, and the Utah State Trust Lands Administration. Out of area trips take place on lands managed by the Arizona Strip BLM and the Henry Mountains Fields Station BLM. Contact our office for information and pricing on Hanksville area trips: Bluejohn canyon, Alcatraz canyon, Leprechaun canyon, Mindbender canyon, and other Northwash and Robbers Roost objectives. We appreciate the opportunity to work in and enjoy our nation’s public lands.


Zion National Park prohibits technical and backcountry guiding. Canyoneering and rock climbing must be done as a private party and backcountry permits are required for all technical canyons. You are also required to know what you are doing.
