For this iconic Utah hiking tour we’ve taken our popular Bryce & Escalante Inn-based Tour in Southern Utah, and added a basecamp adaptation. Our Escalante Basecamp Hiking Tour is an exciting and diverse journey into the classic landscapes of the West. You’ll experience the intricacies of this secluded and diverse landscape. Each day is completely different as we set out on increasingly exciting hikes and adventures into breathtaking Canyon Country. Waterfalls, slickrock, deep canyons, natural arches and bridges, relics of the Native Americans and pioneers who once called this land home, and endless views make this week one of the most enchanting you’ll spend on the planet!
Each evening you’ll return to a comfortable camp with fantastic dinners and breakfasts, access to showers, a variety of cold and hot drinks, larger tents (than on backpacking trips) with plush sleeping amenities, and lots of relaxation to replenish for the next day’s adventure.

TRAVEL TO ST. GEORGE
This Utah trip originates in St. George, Utah where you’ll meet your guide and group. St. George has a small airport served by Delta Connection and United Express. From the St. George Airport one can take a taxi into town or some hotels offer a complimentary airport shuttle. The more popular method of travel though is to fly into Las Vegas, NV and take a shuttle (www.stgshuttle.com) to St. George. This is often your cheapest option. It is a 2-hour drive from Las Vegas to St. George on good roads.

The sales tax is based on the St. George, UT municipality rates, which are adjusted occasionally but are in the 6-7% range.
