Welcome to our 2014 overnight schedule. This year, we are offering 5 overnight canyoneering tours into Utah’s most pristine and beautiful backcountry.
Glen Canyon and Grand Staircase trips will be in the early Spring and late Fall,
to take advantage of the warm temperatures, desert flowers and lonely canyons. On the Summer excursions, we will head up to Death Hollow and enjoy cooler temps, plentiful water and endless exploring opportunities. We are happy to schedule a Kaiparowits trip for anyone who feels like "donating a little skin” to enjoy America’s most remote and undisturbed plateau. Vehicle and backpacking basecamps will be fully stocked with good food, comfortable and warm accommodations and a view you will never forget!

Please visit the Glen Canyon, Death Hollow and Kaiparowits pages to get a
basic understanding of what these different excursions offer. Then you can
