Canyoneering Guide Service

Canyoneering is a perfect Zion activity for families, groups, and individuals of varying outdoor experience and fitness levels.

If you can hike, you can go canyoneering.

We guide canyons ranging from easy hikes to multi-day backcountry expeditions. We are sure to have a canyon that suits your needs and abilities. All trips are private, and we will not combine you with people you do not know.

The Zion National Park area has the most extensive network of sandstone slot canyons anywhere on earth. Canyoneering is the sport of descending and exploring these unique and beautiful environments. These canyons are narrow passages intricately carved by a millennia of water flowing through the porous rock. Canyoneering utilizes hiking, climbing, scrambling, rappelling, and sometimes swimming to navigate these beautiful landscapes. Canyoneering is truly a fun and meaningful Zion adventure.

Our experienced local guides don’t spend all their time climbing the walls of Zion, we also get to enjoy exploring Zions’ radically carved sandstone canyons during the heat of the summer. When the winter hits, and the conditions are good, sometimes you can find us climbing these icy drainages.

No previous experience is required, and we will provide all necessary technical gear and equipment.

We have led groups comprising of multiple families, college groups, summer camps, foreign travelers, scout groups, and indivuals with a wide range of disabilities.
