Canyoneering is the exploration and descent into steep-walled slot canyons. Utah's rugged terrain features huge mesas, ancient rock paintings and cliff dwellings from Native Americans, towering mountains, and open deserts carved by rivers into deep canyons, ravines, and precipitous drops which require you to use ropes to rappel down in steep sections. Whereas on flatter sections you walk or work with your group to shuttle gear as you make your way through the colorful canyons. Outward Bound's canyoneering trips take you far beyond hiking camps and hiking adventures, into some of the most fragile environments and inspiring landscapes.
The power and mystery of this unusual and unbelievable landscape is only known by those who go. Whether you explore the open desert landscape or mesas or wind through serpentine narrow canyons, this is an outdoor environment ripe for exploration, adventure, and self-discovery.
As you ascend steep-sided mesas, navigate in and out of box canyons and seek your next water source, you realize that this austere, delicate environment can help you uncover strengths you didn't even know that you had. When you return to your "regular" life, those newly found strengths can help you achieve more than you ever thought possible.
