Half-day (3 hours)–$120/person.
Full-day (6 hours)–$165/person

Seeking solitude or group fun? Want to experience backcountry scenery or rock art? An individual, couple or group may explore the Canyonlands by horse, foot and/or vehicle. You may design a trip of two or more nights featuring camping or AAA-rated motel lodging.

Charter trips featuring motel lodging do not include dinner. These meals are the responsibility of participants and are available at or near your motel. Otherwise, custom camping trips include complete outfitting with all meals, accommodations, equipment, and transportation from Torrey, Utah and return. Lodging at our finest inns may be arranged.

Note: one night equals one night accommodation plus one day of activity–horse riding, hiking, vehicle touring, or rock art viewing. In other words, the morning after the final night we return to our departure point in Torrey, unless otherwise arranged.

Horseback Riding with outdoor camping:$870/night for 1 or 2 persons; or, $1070/night for 3 or 4 persons; or, $300/night/person for 5 or more persons. Single tent supplement $100
