  • What is the fitness level required to do this tour?

    Activity Level 3: Step It Up, I love an active vacation. Engaging in a challenging activity with a difficult goal, such as reaching a summit, is exactly what I need to unwind in the evenings. Hiking: Typically, 3-6 hours per day on well-formed backcountry trails. Expect some significant gradient inclines and declines. Altitude: Your trip may include some moderate altitude areas, though these don't form the focus of the trip and are generally manageable. Biking: 1-3 hours on well-formed paths or roads where you can expect some hills with moderate climbs and descents. Kayaking: 1-3 hours, entry-level sea kayaking with specialist guides and stable boats. Other activities (i.e. caving): Always optional and very little exertion required. A highlight for many!

Reviews from travellers on this tour

Jeannine  

Bryce Canyon & Zion Adventure

15-Jun-2022

As a single traveler I chose Austin because I found so many great reviews online and it has the activities I was looking for. I was so pleasantly surprised from the moment in the hotel lobby waiting for the vans, when the majority of other Austin travelers were repeat customers. Many with 3 and 5 trips with Austin. Our guides, Jessi, Steve and Joel were phenomenal. No detail left undone! So personable and fun! Even when our trailer hitch broke and our day got off to a later start. The guides didn't miss a beat! They handled it professionally and with grace! And in the end only set us back about an hour. We didn't really even know the difference. I honestly cannot say enough about my experience. I will definitely book again! I am already looking :)

Wonderful Trip

15-Jun-2022

Again, wonderful attention to detail and they think of all the little things. Nice how they deliver and pick up your bags at your room, and they were careful with a fragile item I had. Made sure we knew our itineraries well in advance and about how long in the van and how long until the next bathroom break.
