Exciting New Adventures Beginning Spring 2017!

Great news!  Beginning in March 2017, Get In The Wild was granted a Commercial Use Permit to operate in the magnificent, remote and awe-inspiring San Rafael Swell adjacent to Robber's Roost Country.  The "Swell" is a 75 mile long by 40 mile wide anticline, or uplift in the Earth's surface that have eroded the surrounding terrain into a spectacular labyrinth of colorful valleys, canyons, mesas and buttes.  A myriad of new places to explore are located in this wild, undiscovered landscape.  New tours for spring 2017 include The Occulus, Zero Gravity, Five-Window Arch and a new Outlaw Tour to Bill Tibbett's Cave--the last of the Robber's Roost outlaws.


The Occulus

Popular spring Canyoneering Adventures:

Photography Workshop with Bill Church
May 5-7, 2017
Due to the great success of our 2016 Photography Workshop with Bill Church Photography, we have scheduled another 3-day photography workshop at the Robber's Roost/Dirty Devil Wilderness.  During this workshop, we will cover camera functions, depth of field, night photography, light painting, digital editing, and image composition.  All experience levels are welcome.


Spectacular Sunrise Over Robber's Roost

Accommodations will be Basecamp-style.  We will set-up camp in a remote, wilderness location and explore from there.  It is the best of both worlds - you get to experience solitude at it's finest, but don't have to worry about fitting all of your camping and photography gear into a single backpack. Book your reservation now and save your spot for this exciting and informative adventure!

Introduction to Technical Canyoneering
April 28-30, 2017
Want to explore some of the North America’s most spectacular and awe-inspiring technical canyons with names such as Leprechaun, Larry, Bluejohn, Chambers and Mindbender? Looking to have fun in the canyons, learn essential safety skills, and experience the unique camaraderie and power of the “team”?  This course will provide you a well-rounded base of technical canyoneering and canyon leadership skills that are essential for achieving these goals.


Have We Mentioned That Canyoneering Is Fun!  

Unlike many courses which are taught at climbing walls, this course is taught in actual technical slot canyons.  Matter of fact, the areas we teach in have some of the best technical slot canyons on the planet.  We believe there is no substitute for learning canyoneering in actual canyons.  We're confident that once you see our incredible outdoor, wilderness classroom, you too will agree.  We only have a few spots remaining for our April 28-30 course.  Register today to reserve your spot!

Spring Canyoneering season is just around the corner and the staff at Get In The Wild have been busy planning a variety of exciting new adventures that are guaranteed to delight.  From exciting hiking, backpacking, canyoneering and photography tours to family adventure vacations, vehicle basecamp safaris and hard core expeditions, we have trips and programs for adventurers of all ages, interests and skill levels.  Here is a sample of some of our exciting new programs:

Goblin's Lair/Chamber of the Basalisk


Hidden amongst the spectacular hoodos and mesas of Goblin Valley State park lies a truly fantastic canyoneering adventure.  Following a short and fun scramble through the Valley of the Goblins, we enter a beautiful slot canyon that disappears into a dark and mysterious chasm in the Earth.  It is here that we put on our canyoneering gear and rappel into this spectacular and awe-inspiring chamber that resembles a gothic cathedral.  The Goblins Lair and Chamber of the Basalisk is truly an unforgettable canyoneering adventure and like most of our trips is suitable for the entire family.

 

Hogwarts Canyon


Hogwart's canyon is magical new technical canyoneering route full of amazing surprises! Certain to provide a grand adventure for all who dare to explore it's hidden secrets. Some of it's unique features include an awe-inspiring rappel through a beautiful redrock arch, a semi-keeper pothole sure to get your attention and a 90 ft free rappel guaranteed to get your adrenaline flowing. Come join us for a grand canyoneering adventure at Hogwart's Canyon!

 

Happy Canyon


Many travelers and outdoor adventurers have seen or heard about one of the Southwest’s most beautiful slot canyons—Antelope Canyon located near Page, Arizona at the Navaho Tribal Park. Unbeknownst to most however is an amazing and spectacular canyon that is aesthetically very similar and just as beautiful—Happy Canyon located in the amazing Dirty Devil/Robbers Roost Wilderness. So, why should I go to Happy Canyon you might ask. For us, the answer is very simple and can be summed up in just a single word—solitude!  A trip to Happy Canyon provides a beautiful approach through one of America’s last known wilderness areas. During spring season, hikers are rewarded along the way with abundant wildflowers, unique and colorful collared lizards and something that can be found few other places—total and complete solitude. Trips to Happy canyon can be arranged as both single day trips and can also be combined as part of multi-day Backpacking trips and Canyoneering Safaris. Join us for an experience like no other—a fabulous wilderness trip to spectacular Happy Canyon!

 

Native American Indian Rock Art Tour


Over the past few years, many of you have been asking if we provide tours to Native American cultural sites. While most of our trips include visits to a variety of petroglyphs, pictographs and cliff dwellings, until now we have not had tours dedicated to this experience. The areas that we travel within the Greater Canyonlands region are characterized by a vast number of unique and beautiful sites. This area contains some of the oldest and highest concentrations of ancestral American Indian history located anywhere in the US.  National Park and Bureau of Land Management studies have estimated over 24 sites per square mile in this region dating to over 10,000 years old.  We are now offering programs as single day auto tours, hiking tours and multi-day backpacking trips. Register now and be a part of this exciting new experience beginning in spring 2016.

Join us in 2012 for Exciting Canyoneering Trips in Capitol Reef National Park

Great news for fans of the beautiful and awe-inspiring red-rock canyons of Southern Utah.  We just received our 2012 Commercial Use Permit for Capitol Reef National Park.  We have a variety of exciting canyoneering trips planned which include some of the best slot-canyons in the Southwest.   

For those unfamiliar with the park, it is characterized by colorful sandstone formations, cliffs, canyons, ridges, buttes and monoliths.  It’s most stunning geologic feature is a 100 mile long warp in the Earth’s crust known as the Waterpocket Fold.  This 65 million year old fold is the largest exposed monocline in the North America.  It is comprised of younger and older layers of the Earth’s crust which were folded over each other in an S-shape.  This striking geologic feature was probably caused by the same collision of continental plates that created the Rocky Mountains.  It has weathered and eroded over melinnea to expose a fascinating amalgam of brilliantly colored sandstone cliffs and canyons, gleaming white domes and contrasting layers of intricately shaped rock and sand.
