Advanced Canyoneering

Advanced Canyoneering

For those who really like to push their boundaries and experience new heights, we’ve created our Advanced Zion guided canyoneering trips. On these excursions, we cover more terrain at a much faster speed. The hiking is strenuous and there are more rappels involved with some being over 100 feet tall. The learning curve is much steeper. Having some rappelling experience can be beneficial, however, it is not completely necessary. We have taken beginners out, who have picked up the techniques quickly. It really depends on your endurance level, hiking experience, and willingness to push yourself.

If you are still reading and this sounds like the adventure for you, be sure to contact us. There are some incredible slot canyons that we visit on our high adventure trips. That is not to say that slot canyons we go canyoneering on our Half Day and Full Day Zion guided canyoneering trips aren’t just as amazing, they really are. All of the canyons are beautiful and adventurous in their own way, and for most of our guests, a Half or Full Day fits exactly what they are looking for as they plan their Zion guided canyoneering trip.

What To Expect
On Your Adventure

On the day of your Advanced Zion guided canyoneering trip, we will pick you up from your accommodations if you are staying in Kanab, or from a convenient meet up spot if you are coming from Springdale, Virgin, St George, or Hurricane. This pick up system allows us to maximize the amount of time we spend exploring on your excursion. From there your adventure begins, so get ready to have some fun!

Gearing Up For An Adventure

Once we have arrived at the trailhead, we will all gear up in harnesses and helmets and prepare our canyoneering gear.

Safety Procedures

Your safety is always our priority. Our guides will go over a comprehensive safety checklist with you and insure that you are comfortable before we head out. 

Sun Protection and Hydration

It gets HOT out here! Please be sure to start hydrating before your trip, bring plenty of water, and wear sunscreen, sunglasses, hats, and protective clothing.


We will stop for a lunch break on a High Adventure day trip. You have the option of bringing your lunch, or we can provide one for you for an additional cost.

Leave No Trace

We want to leave our adventure zone the same, if not, better than we found it on each trip. We always carry our trash out from all Zion guided canyoneering trips.
