Our Inn-based Death Valley Tour allows you to enjoy the best backcountry trails in the park while returning to the comfort of contemporary lodging and relaxing restaurant meals each evening.
Death Valley—the largest national park in the contiguous United States—is 93 percent untrammeled wilderness, making it a paradise for hikers and nature enthusiasts. Discover narrow canyons, vast dune fields, ancient lava flows, high alpine forests, scenic mountains, and the rich history of the American West. After spending your days exploring this diverse landscape, enjoy your evenings in historic Furnace Creek lodging where you can clean up, eat a fine dinner, and relax by a crackling fire under incredible starlight.

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.
