Group Size
Approximately 13 Travelers
A very important feature of our Southwest adventure is the small group size, as nature encounters in the desert canyonlands are best experienced in the more intimate context of a smaller group. Traveling in Nat Hab's specialty North American Safari Trucks, we divide our group into two vehicles, each with a guide, further enhancing our low-key presence.
Specialized 4x4 Land Rovers and Land Cruisers
Our Private Leaders
Included
Accommodations, services of Nat Hab's professional Expedition Leader(s) and local staff, scenic helicopter ride over Bryce Canyon, transportation in Nat Hab's North American Safari Trucks, all meals from dinner on Day 1 through breakfast on final day, most gratuities, airport transfers on Day 1 and final day, all activities and entrance fees, all taxes, permits and service fees.
Not Included
Travel to and from the start and end point of your trip, alcoholic beverages, some gratuities, passport and visa fees (if any), optional activities, items of a personal nature (phone calls, laundry and internet, etc.), airline baggage fees, airport and departure taxes (if any), optional travel protection and medical evacuation insurance.
Physical Requirements
Easy to Moderate
This adventure does not require a high degree of physical fitness. However, in order to participate, travelers should be able to walk at least two miles unassisted over uneven terrain and inclines, with some altitude gain, and at altitudes up to 9,115 feet above sea level. An optional mule ride is available for participants weighing less than 200 pounds. Most of the trip takes place in an arid desert environment, and the sun can be intense at times. Our days generally start quite early and are very full with activities, including a few long drives. While travelers are not required to participate in all activities, should you opt out of the day’s scheduled activities, we cannot always guarantee that alternatives will be available.

Difficult (for Canyons Special Active Walking Departures only)
This walking adventure requires a higher degree of physical fitness compared to other Nat Hab departures. Included hikes are moderate to difficult in terms of physical exertion. In order to participate, travelers should be able to walk 5+ miles unassisted over uneven terrain and inclines, with some altitude gain, and at altitudes up to 9,115 feet above sea level. Some hikes may last three or more hours. An optional mule ride is available for participants weighing less than 200 pounds. Most of the trip takes place in an arid desert environment, and the sun can be intense. Our days generally start quite early and are very full with activities, including a few long drives. While travelers are not required to participate in all activities, should you opt out of the day's scheduled activities, we cannot always guarantee that alternatives will be available.
Important Information About This Trip
This trip offers our guests a chance to encounter a side of the American Southwest that most casual tourists miss. The main goal of our seasoned Expedition Leaders is to get our travelers to less-visited areas away from heavy crowds in order to experience the wildlife and natural grandeur of the canyonlands in the most secluded manner possible. Specific dates cannot be booked with the national parks until August (for the following year). Trip dates listed are likely to change slightly and will be confirmed at that time. Depending upon availability, itineraries may run in a different order.
Mandatory Insurance
Since the areas you will travel to on this trip are remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we require medical evacuation insurance for this program. If you decline the medical evacuation insurance coverage offered by Natural Habitat Adventures, we require that you send us documentation of the independent coverage you have selected. We recommend that your chosen independent insurance plan includes at least $250,000 in medical evacuation coverage. Please note that we will add the cost of Natural Habitat Adventures' medical evacuation policy (currently $48 per person) to your tour invoice until you provide our office with proof of coverage including your insurance company's name, phone number and your individual policy number. Thank you for understanding that our policy exists exclusively in the interest of our guests' safety.

To protect your investment and to provide peace of mind while you travel, we also strongly recommend purchasing comprehensive travel insurance. Plans may cover everything from medical treatment to trip cancellations and delays and lost luggage. Please contact our office if you would like more information about the medical evacuation and comprehensive travel insurance policies we offer by calling 800-543-8917.
Getting There & Getting Home
We recommend that you arrive to St. George, Utah by 5 pm on Day 1 in order to join your group orientation at 6 pm. You are free to depart in the afternoon after 1:30 pm on the final day.

Important note: The St. George Airport will be closed for construction May 29 – Sept. 26, 2019. During this period, we recommend you fly in and out of Las Vegas, Nev., then take the shuttle to and from St. George.
