straddle slot canyon walls

Have you heard of canyoneering but aren’t quite sure what it is? It’s the ultimate slot canyon experience where you get to take in beautiful scenery while rappelling, down climbing, hiking, scrambling, and using rope skills to safely descend. It’s one of the most unique adventures southern Utah has to offer.

Adventurers from all over the world travel to the Zion National Park area just to experience our beautiful slot canyons. From professional canyoneers to average joes, we mean it when we say there’s something for everyone. Our guided canyoneering adventures run the gamut from a simple walk-in slot canyon tour that just about anyone can do to a full-day canyoneering adventure with epic rappelling views.

That canyon glow

East Zion canyoneering adventures are just the thrill you’ve been wanting to add to your Zion National Park vacation itinerary.  Zion’s backcountry is home to slot canyons unlike any others.

Our new walk-in slot canyon tour is a non-technical canyoneering adventure that allows you to get up close and personal with a stunning East Zion slot canyon on foot, no harness and no rappelling! Enjoy a guided off-road UTV excursion to the mouth of Crimson Canyon, where you’ll find ancient petroglyphs within the narrow canyon walls and views to rival the most beautiful slots in southern Utah!

For anyone ready to tackle a more adventurous experience but new to the sport, a half-day canyoneering adventure provides an opportunity to explore stunning slot canyons through a mixture of hiking, climbing, and rappelling. Tack on a Jeep tour for an even grander adventure complete with exciting trails, beautiful views and more.

Just when we thought rappelling couldn’t be any cooler, our full-day canyoneering trip features 11 rappels up to 110 feet. You don’t want to miss out on this adventure. Don’t despair if you’re new to canyoneering. Zion Ponderosa’s 40-foot climbing wall and rappelling class are great for learning the ropes before hitting the trails.

Canyoneering adventures that will rock your world

The best part about guiding is seeing people reach for new heights and push themselves farther than they thought they could go, both mentally and physically. Many of our adventures require you to dig deep, but the pay off is well worth it when you reach the top of that climb or rappel off that cliff (that made you cringe just minutes before). These are the moments you’ll never forget, and our guides are committed to making sure you’re safe and stoked every step of the way.
