Based out of Prescott and Phoenix Arizona our Canyoneering trips explore some of the most enchanting terrain in the United States.
Canyoneering (also known as canyoning) is a word used to refer to hiking through a canyon where roped, or technical, travel is required. This also may include swimming.
Arizona is home to an abundance of canyoneering objectives with canyon country that carves through almost all major rock types and ecosystems giving us a very extended canyoneering season as well as heightened level of adventure and wonder.
Location: Minnow Canyon, Superstition Mountains
No previous rappeling experience required. Some hiking experience helpful but not required. Good fitness is always a plus.
Location: Zig-zag or Tango Canyon, Superstition Mountains
Previous rappeling experience required. Level 2 trips consist of strenuous hikes and challenging rock hoping.
Dry Canyons are canyons that don’t typically have enough water running through to require swimming and/ or a wetsuit. There may be a pool here and there that one must wade through.
