Our 1 Day Basic Canyoneering Course is designed to be a thorough introduction to Canyoneering, as well as a one day refresher for those with prior experience. No prior technical experience needed, but basic climbing or rappelling experience helpful.
The course is a FULL DAY course that run for 6-7 hours. There will be some light hiking (under 1 hour) so wear comfortable hiking shoes. Your guide will provide you with all the needed gear prior to your course. Just remember to bring plenty of water and some snacks or lunch.
We want to accommodate you, so all our trips are private. As a result, start times can be adjusted around your travel plans and you will never be grouped with others unless requested.
Note: As directed by the Superintendent, paid guiding is not permitted within Zion National Park for any of the guide services. All trips and courses are done outside of the park in beautiful locations. Details will be given when you call to book your course or trip.
