With six mountain ranges and 93 percent untrammeled wilderness, Death Valley National Park—the largest national park in the contiguous United States—is best discovered in a pair of hiking boots. Discover narrow canyons, vast dune fields, ancient lava flows, high alpine forests, scenic mountains, and the rich history of the American West.
We’ll spend our days hiking the park’s extraordinarily diverse landscapes. At night, we’ll rest easy at our basecamp and enjoy delicious dinners by campfire before retiring to our tents under a stunning blanket of stars that adorns some of the darkest skies in the country. Join us for this Death Valley Tour of a lifetime.

TRAVEL TO LAS VEGAS
Las Vegas’ McCarran Airport is one of the most easily accessed destinations in the country. Many major cities in the United States and internationally offer direct flights into Las Vegas. A company named Airline Shuttle (1-888-554-1156) can help you with economic transport to most hotels. Taxi cabs run about $40 to downtown, and the city is also Uber- and Lyft-friendly.
UTAH SALES TAX
Utah is the only state we are based in that charges sales tax to outfitters and guides. The sales tax is based on the St. George, UT municipality rates, which are adjusted occasionally but are in the 6-7% range. For all of our hiking and backpacking tours that originate from our St. George, Utah base (Utah trips and Death Valley trips), the sales tax will be applied automatically to your payments.
