On day one, we head out to the Hanksville/North Wash area where we’ll walk, rappel, stem, chimney, crawl and shimmy through whichever canyon(s) we’ve decided on. Once fully exhausted, we’ll head to base camp where a well-earned dinner is prepared by your multi-talented guide. We provide everything you’ll need to have a relaxing and comfortable evening at camp – including tents, sleeping pads, sleeping bags, etc. Here you have the freedom to continue your exploration around camp or just relax and reminisce about the days shenanigans. We’ll be camping just outside of Canyonlands National Park where you’ll experience first hand why it was recognized as a Gold-Tier International Dark Sky Park by the International Dark-Sky Association in 2015. In the morning, coffee and breakfast will have you ready for yet another grand adventure of your choice.

We guide many canyons in the Irish Canyons and Poison Springs areas, and our guides look forward to customizing an itinerary for your group to ensure that you get the most out of your Southern Utah vacation. Don’t hesitate to contact us to hear more about all the canyons that we guide and what we think would be the best fit for you!

The long drive to these canyons can be greatly reduced with a scenic flight. There are many backcountry airstrips in southern Utah, most scratched out during the heyday uranium mining boom era of the 1940’s and 50’s. They offer unforgettable (and often expedited) access to these remote canyons. Most flights are about an hour and are operated in conjunction with Redtail Aviation at Canyonlands Airport. Consider this approach since it allows an unparalleled view and understanding of the complex terrain that you’ll soon be exploring. The flight is sure to be just as memorable as the canyons themselves.

Our experience was breathtaking, beautiful and with bountiful adrenaline surges. We had little to no canyoneering experience and while we both are usually adventure seeking, we truly had no preset expectations in our mind for what we may encounter beyond fun solitude in a new place far from the crowds. And this adventure did not disappoint... Our guide was Jake and immediately we were stoked in the match. He is extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of the experience. We learned as much or as little as we wanted. He knew the answers to every question we posed about safety and the canyons in the area as well as the history of the sport. He even pointed us to a documentary about the beginnings of Canyoneering- then called Gorging which did not disappoint! A guided experience was brand new for us and we were pleasantly surprised. It was different to have someone carry the majority of the load- but it gave us the opportunity to really be in the moment and enjoy every little nook and cranny we stepped through or descended down or climbed up and over. We both would highly recommend getting out there overnight as it afforded us the chance to have a day getting comfortable and also for Jake to assess what he believed we were capable of undertaking before starting out on day two. It was an overall AWESOME couple of days in the greatest sense of the word. We constantly looked around and simply uttered, "WOW!" as we took in our surroundings. We absolutely would have booked three days if we had more time. It was an adventure back in time among some of the most awe inspiring and ancient rock formations we have ever encountered and we did not want to leave. On top of the fact that each part of the descent was explained to us from the ropes and the anchoring systems to some wonderful input on proper techniques for stemming- we were really given the freedom to figure out what felt natural and comfortable for us to make our way through the canyons and that was more than we could have hoped for. When we needed extra assistance Jake was right there to hold a foot or to spot us on tricky parts or even when my mind got the better of me and I felt a bit uncertain. He was constantly aware of the situations lying before us and would give just enough of a glimpse into what lay ahead that we were prepared but no surprises were spoiled. AND then there was the food. We are used to snacking on granola bars and fruit (which we were given) and usually that is where it ends on our backcountry adventures. We may end up with some dehydrated food out of a bag at the end of the day but not during this excursion. Jake had delicious and healthy wrap options for mid day picnics, fajitas with fixings at the end of the day and amazing percolated coffee in the morning to go with eggs and bacon! That blew our minds and definitely helped fuel our bodies. All in all I wish we could add a bonus star as Jake went above and beyond. He was very accommodating in guiding us to pit toilets if wag bags are not your thing, he took us on a pre-dinner walk to a petroglyph site and included us on all the decision making for the entire course of the time out. If you are waiting to pull the trigger on this- GO FOR IT!

We did a multi-day trip with Leprechaun Canyon the first day, Blarney the second, and a campout overnight. Plenty of rappels and down-climbing that our kids (ages 14 and 10) and the adults enjoyed. Kai was an awesome guide and prepared delicious meals for us the entire time we were out. Would definitely book another trip with Desert Highlights when in the Moab area!
