This Women’s Death Valley Camping Tour is an opportunity to explore one of America’s most unique national parks on foot in the company of other female guests and guides. We set up camp in or near Death Valley National Park and embark on a series of day hikes that explore the other-worldly nature of its deserts, canyons, mountains and sand dunes. We’ll visit craters, canyons with a rainbow of colors created by volcanic deposits, a lush desert oasis, a towering mountain peak and much more. Each evening we’ll return to camp where your guide(s) will prepare home-cooked meals while we relax and discuss the wonders of the area.
This tour includes roundtrip transportation from Las Vegas, NV; all meals from breakfast the first day through lunch the final day; all camping gear; backpacks and trekking poles; professional female wilderness guides and more. Join us for a journey through a timeless and fascinating landscape in Death Valley National Park!

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, Joshua Tree and Death Valley trips), the sales tax will be applied automatically to your payments. Feel free to call us at 1-800-715-HIKE (4453) with any questions!
