Glen Canyon/Neon Backpacking Base Camp

4 Days/3 Nights - $1,350 Per Person                        Rates include your Guides, Camp Chef/Manager, Gear (except wetsuits) and Food. Tax and Gratuities not included. **Minimum Rate Applies.

Neon Canyon/Golden Cathedral is the focus of these trips. Because of the extremely remote location of Neon Canyon and the Golden Cathedral, we offer this experience as a 4 Day/3 Night adventure. In addition to experiencing Neon Canyon and rappelling into the famous Golden Cathedral, we will explore a couple of equally epic canyons.

On this trip guests will carry a 30-35lb pack into our remote backcountry camp. Once in camp our staff will handle set up, meals and water runs. All guests need to do is relax! When adventuring into the canyons, guests will only need to carrying a day pack with wetsuit, gear, water and lunch. Upon returning to camp each evening guests greeted with appetizers and time to reflect on the day, take a solar shower or enjoy a nap! Filling meals are served fireside and the Milky Way and shooting stars provide entertainment. Sleeping under a blanket of stars is your choice!

**Our Multi-Day trips are All Inclusive. We provide all camping equipment, including sleeping bags, pads, and tents. All food and snacks are provided and prepared by our staff. From the sunscreen to the daypacks and canyon gear we’ve got you covered! (except wetsuits)**
