What is Canyoneering?

Canyoneering is the art of descending a canyon.  Simple as that.  Okay, well sometimes not quite that simple.  Sometimes, especially in the Southern Utah Red Rock country, descending a slot canyon involves ropes, rappelling, down-climbing, sliding, and otherwise getting down through whatever challenges the canyon might throw at us.  Canyoneering is a fun, team-building exercise in the most beautiful terrain imaginable.

Our guides equip you with high quality helmets, harnesses, gloves and rappelling devices.  We then give you techniques on how to rappel effectively and efficiently.  Kanab Tour Company has, and always will have, a Two-Man Canyoneering System.  This insures all rope rigging is done correctly and thoroughly checked.  One of your guides will always act as the belay person.  A belay person protects the rappelling client from any chance of falling.  Proper communication is key.  Our clients’ safety and comfort is always first and foremost, and it is always helpful to have an extra pair of eyes (and hands for photo taking!).  We want you to walk away from this experience with added confidence.

We have successfully taken many families through canyoneering adventures.  We love to see the team-building and cooperation that comes through this activity.  Many of our past clients have told us that this was the highlight of their Southern Utah Adventure.  Let us help make it the highlight of your vacation.

Get away from the tourist hoards and experience something truly unique. Our one-on-one instructional experience will give you confidence as you descend through a multi-layer slot canyon, learning canyoneering techniques along the way! A perfect activity for any age!
