Full description
This tour begins with a thrilling ride in a customized off-road machine leading to a slot canyon, which is privately accessed only and far from any paved roads. Once at the canyon's mouth, the hike begins. The red canyon walls stretch over 100-feet high on either side, with a gap of only 6-10 feet between the walls to hike through. Led by a guide and local expert, the tour continues on foot through the canyon while learning about Native American history and geographical information. Large boulders frequent the route, requiring short climbs of 3-6 feet with the assistance of the guide. After traveling the desired distance into the canyon and capturing stunning pictures of these sandstone formations, you’ll hike the same route back to the vehicle and return to the meeting location.

The tour was amazing — Dylan gave us a fun UTV ride and guided us through the slot canyon, which was beautiful! We decided early to just take off our shoes and get wet as there was a lot of water — had a blast and were so happy we didn’t turn around early. Highly recommend!

This was an excellent tour and made the slot canyons accessible for my 68 year old uncle and I who would be unable to see them through canyoneering! The slot canyons were beautiful and the tour was basically a private tour! Our guide, Dan, shared all sorts of great information about the landscape and history.

East of Zion Park, we took a tour on a supercharged UTV, through the back country and river beds, a crazy-bumpy thrill ride -- I had my eyes closed at least half the time! We saw petroglyphs, two beautiful and fascinating slot canyons and a beautiful overlook spot. These are places we would never have gone on our own and I’m so glad we took the tour!
