We offer the most comprehensive selection of canyon routes in the area.

Guided canyoneering trips take place in slot canyons located on public lands surrounding the park.  Zion National Park prohibits commercial canyoneering trips within its boundaries and all technical canyoneering within the park must be done as a private party. It is not possible to hire a guide for canyons such as the Subway, Pine Creek, or Keyhole Canyon.  A backcountry permit is required for all zion canyoneering routes and you are also required to know what you are doing.
