Escalante Canyon (Utah)
You're looking for true wilderness, away from the RVs and crowds. You seek a
place of exquisite, startling beauty to share with family or friends. You want
unmediated nature, but also complete safety; a physical challenge, but one that
doesn’t require exceptional physical fitness.
This is it.
The Escalante Canyon, in remote southern Utah, is a spectacular, virtually
untouristed wilderness of sculptured slickrock, towering red cliffs, natural
swimming holes, rock arches and twisting canyons. Outside Magazine considers it
“one of the ten best treks in North America”. This summer we're offering two
treks in this region far, far away from civilization. We'll hike, camp, ford and
explore - accompanied by 2 local guides and a few llamas to help carry supplies.
The treks are rated 1 in terms of difficulty (i.e. easy), and a perfect 10 for
families, first-time trekkers, and anyone who wants to experience the natural
beauty of the American Southwest at its most pristine.
