Multi Day Zion Canyoneering is our premier canyoneering and backcountry hiking adventure. During this tour we backpack a section of the East Fork of the Virgin River called the Barracks. This is adjacent to Zion NP. Along the way we get an opportunity to explore numerous slot canyons. Two of the slot canyons are technical descents involving rappelling, down climbing and short swims.

This is a strenuous trip. We most commonly run this trip over three days. The overall intensity can be modified depending on the participants fitness level. The canyons we descend have rappels up to 110 feet. We hike anywhere from 7-13 miles per day. Two day and three day trips are options as well as we can modify the final itinerary.

This is a full value backcountry experience in a pristine and rarely visited part of the Zion National Park area. These private trips are an exclusive offering by ZMS and are customized around participants fitness and experience level.

No previous experience is required. We will provide all necessary technical gear. Food and personal camping equipment are not included in the price and can be arranged for an additional cost. April-October are the best months for this back-country adventure.

We will present a menu for approval. Then we will have the food available for your trip. The trip involves strenuous hiking and various base camps. This means the goal is to go light. The food that we will provide is your modern day backpacking meals (e.g. Mountain House, granola, energy bars, dried fruit, nuts, and other trail food).  The menu can be modified but please inform us of any food allergies or dietary restrictions.
