Location of Adventure
Southern Utah and Northern Arizona, United States
Group Size Limit
Approximately 12 Travelers
An important feature of our Southwest photo adventure is the limited group size, since nature photography is best experienced in the quieter setting of a small group. You'll also be assured plenty of personal attention from our photo tour Expedition Leader, and plenty of room for your gear while traveling in Nat Hab's specialty North American Safari Trucks.

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 of up to 9,115 feet above sea level. There is an optional mule ride 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.
Important Information About This Trip
On this adventure, we’ll see a side of the American Southwest that most casual tourists miss. The main goal of our experienced Expedition Leaders is to get our travelers to less-visited areas away from crowds in order to experience the wildlife and natural grandeur of the canyon lands in the most remote and 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
Since the areas we travel to are remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we strongly recommend that all guests have, at minimum, medical evacuation insurance for this program. While this is not required, we make this strong suggestion in the interest of our guests' safety. We recommend that your chosen independent insurance plan includes at least $250,000 in medical evacuation coverage.
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.
