Full description
This tour begins with a thrilling ride in a customized off-road machine leading to a slot canyon, which is privately accessed only and far from any paved roads. Once at the canyon's mouth, the hike begins. The red canyon walls stretch over 100-feet high on either side, with a gap of only 6-10 feet between the walls to hike through. Led by a guide and local expert, the tour continues on foot through the canyon while learning about Native American history and geographical information. Large boulders frequent the route, requiring climbs of 3-6 feet with the assistance of the guide. After traveling the desired distance into the canyon and capturing stunning pictures of these sandstone formations, you’ll hike the same route back to the vehicle and return to the meeting location.

Zion is an amazing place and everything is wonderful and a highlight of the trip... Angel's Landing, the Narrows, getting a root beer float in Springdale after hiking all day. But if I HAD to choose just ONE highlight, this tour would be it!! Renn was our guide and he was simply the BEST! He expertly managed that white knuckle drive to the slot canyon and then guided us in. My friend had experience rock climbing and had no problem with the minor bouldering that we encountered. I had zero experience and relied on Renn's calm and confident instructions on how to maneuver the boulders, encouraging but not pushy. He respected my limits. Incredible photo opportunities. Will definitely be framing some of them. I almost captured the magic of the slot canyon with my camera but the awe of their magnificence can only be experienced in person. We had major adrenaline rushes for hours after this tour. Highly recommend!!

This slot canyon excursion was fantastic! Lonnie and Ren, our guides, took us on a fun UTV ride to the slot canyon. They guided us through the slot canyon with excellent directions and care (Our daughter has autism and they were extremely helpful and patient with her). We were able to take as many pictures as we liked and Lonnie showed us a photo trick that was the bomb! The limited amount of people on the excursion made it personal and there were no crowds to contend with. Honestly, the slot canyon was magical. Could not recommend this enough.

Absolutely amazing tour! Fun UTV ride off the beaten path to Crimson Slot Canyon. Lonnie was fun, extremely knowledgeable about the area and was excellent at instructing us how to get over the boulders in the canyon. John P’s. group merged with ours (only 8 of us total and I think the max is 10, so we loved that it’s a small group) There were two young elementary age girls in the group and they had a blast climbing thru the canyon! John P. is a fantastic guide as well…Lonnie & John P. make an amazing team, really fun & easy to talk to. Young or old…If you want a unique, memorable and totally fun experience that exceeds any of your expectations do the crimson tour! You won’t regret it! The beauty of it is breathtaking!
