“The Most Diverse Outdoor Location That I Have Ever Seen!”

Check out our list of 7 distracting adventures below!


Boy Canyoneering in Zion

Canyoneering is very popular in Zion and the sport continues to grow as people discover and explore parts of the park you normally wouldn’t see! At first it seems like a daunting task to climb down into a narrow slot canyon and navigate your way through the unknown. We recommend using one of the skilled canyoneering guides and outfitters that operate locally. These guides know the slot canyons better than anyone else and can take you the safest possible way.


Zipline St.George

Zipline your way across up to 800 feet of canyon! A friend of ours told us, “I have been coming to St. George for over 20 years and never knew you could zipline here!” Well now is the time to go. Set up with one of the zipline adventure guides and take the ride of your life! They will make you feel safe and confident as you experience an opportunity missed by many.

The horsepower of a jeep is awesome, but it’s especially great when it’s quiet, serene, and powered by only 1 horse. We understand that horseback riding isn’t for everyone, but with the trail experience and expertise of our horseback riding guides and outfitters, you may see a different side of the country.
