Featured Utah Tours

Canyons of the Escalante

7 Days

The large swath of land known as Utah’s Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument is a collection of geologic splendors and a labyrinth of seemingly endless colorful canyons. Southwest Adventure Tours will take you on an intimate tour through many of these canyons and visit the monument’s unique landscapes. The monument has one of the highest concentrations of slot canyons anywhere in the world and this tour will concentrate on hiking through some of the best ones.

The best way to see the canyons of the Escalante is on foot. That’s why every day of this tour will consist of 5 to 10 miles of hiking (only one day will include a hike of 10 miles in length). Every day will consist of a hike through some sort of canyon – whether it be a series of slot canyons or a lush green canyon surrounded by colorful canyon walls. Along with trekking through a bunch of canyons, you’ll also see several arches and natural bridges, a dinosaur trackway, and Native American ruins and rock art.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "Our trip of the Mighty Five Utah National Parks out of Salt Lake City was magical! Our guide, Adam Bath, was practically perfect…made us feel safe, knew where to go, and adjusted to changes in late March weather. We ate at wonderful restaurants, saw magnificent scenery, and stayed in fabulous locations. The van was so comfortable and our group was so precious, especially the children. 😊. This trip far exceeded my expectations. Adam knew interesting facts he shared along the way concerning geological formations and history, that it was an added bonus (as were his musical selections). Even if you can’t make a more strenuous hike, Adam will show you something you CAN do. Our group ranged from 8 years to 70’s and we all were happy on this trip. What a memory! Utah is amazing and so is Southwest Adventure Tours!" - Anne Roberts, Google review

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ My wife, sister, friends and I went on the Utah Mighty 5 tour with Captain Adam Bath. The tour exceeded all of our expectations. Adam is a superb, fun guide.  He knows how to deliver the best sights, restaurants, and travel to fill your day with adventure. The tour accommodates all sight seeing and hiking abilities. Great tunes and space in the M.B.  sprinter van. Utah is incredible state." - John Pender, Google Review
