4 days
From June to October

Do you like nature walks? Have you done it through a river?

The Virgin River has sculpted a spectacular ravine in the upper courses of Zion Canyon, in the USA; 26 km long, up to 600 meters deep and depending on the area, 5 to 10 meters wide.

The Narrows, with its majestic walls, sandstone niches, natural slopes and hanging gardens can be an unforgettable experience.

Walking down The Narrows means walking down the Virgin River. At least 60 percent of the walk is wading, walking and sometimes swimming. It’s not just any path. The current can be fast, the water is cold and the rocks we walk on are slippery. There are possibilities of flash flooding and hypothermia in certain months and that is why we only travel in the months where the water flow is lowest and tracking the weather forecast. Properly done, it’s totally safe and even for families.

The key? Go prepared. . .

Before starting the walk, we will get the weather forecast and know the probabilities of a flood. The problem is that it could be raining miles away, not perceiving it and surprising us in the form of a flood in the middle of our path.

We will rent you special waterproof and non-slip boots with ankle protection, designed for walking in the water.

You will carry a wooden stick, which we will also provide you with, to help you during your journey down the river.

You will have to take four liters of drinking water per person per day, food, sunglasses, sun protection and our guide will carry a small first aid kit.

Ideal is to dress in layers. At noon it can get very hot and later it gets cooler.


Departure Day

We will arrive by car via Las Vegas. This journey takes us about 3 hours and it is about 175 miles, to the heart of the Zion National Park, in the state of Utah. We do the check-in in the chosen hotel. Than we will be taken to enjoy the sunset from a strategic point of the Zion National Park.

Day 2

Breakfast at the hotel. Today we start early in the morning with a day full of activities waiting for us. Our private guide will pick us up and we will make our hike through a part of the Zion Canyon , called The Narrows. There are three possible options to choose depending on the traveler profile. All three of them spectacular, guaranteed. -Day excursion Bottom Up: This round trip can take up to eight hours and is the easiest way to get to know The Narrows. We will take the Park bus from below to the Temple of Sinawava, we will walk about 1.8km towards the end of the Riverside Walk to the beginning of The Narrows. There we will begin to wade the river. We can make the whole journey or come back whenever we want. It is forbidden to walk upstream in Orderville Canyon or beyond Big Spring. -Day trip Top Down: This strenuous 26-kilometer hike takes all day and you need a permission and a private bus to go to the trailhead. Night excursion from Top Down: For this two-day excursion you need a permission and a private bus to go to the trailhead. The maximum stay allowed is one night, so you have to do it in this time . Walking through The Narrows involves walking in the Virgin River. Enjoy the video and imagine that you are already there…https://youtube/-yO9iTdwKyw

Day 3

Breakfast at the hotel. Today we will start, also early, a new route. We will walk towards The Subway through the trails of the Left Fork, canyon, also known as the Great West Canyon. This is one of the most beautiful and most popular canyons in Zion Park. The most famous section of this canyon is The Subway – an incredible half-mile stretch that looks like a tubular tunnel with slopes down the middle of the ravine. Left Fork has a very diverse terrain, and as such, there are several possible routes, ranging from simple hiking tracks to very technical parts. Our professional guide will take us along the sections we want based on our degree of experience. We will need mandatory permissions (in this case they only allow a limited number of people per day) as in The Narrows and it is mandatory to do the route in one day. It is not possible to sleep in the Park. There are two ways to choose: – – Day trip Bottom Up: This strenuous round trip tour of 9 kilometers requires a knowledge of the route and includes crossing currents and walking on slippery rocks. This hike begins and ends on the Left Fork Trail on the Kolob Terrace Road. It’s the simplest option and you don’t need rappelling knowledge. – Day trip Top Down: This strenuous 9.5 mile hike requires rappelling skills, 60 feet of rope and go with a professional guide. The route also requires swimming through several deep pools of very cold water full of rocks and trunks. The trail starts on the Wildcat Canyon trail and ends on the Left Fork trail. Both are located on Kolob Terrace Road north of Virgin, Utah. It is the most spectacular route.

Day 4. Return

Breakfast at the hotel. If we want to spend more days enjoying the National Park we can climb to Angels Landing where we will enjoy wonderful views, make horse riding (starting from Emerald Pools) or do some cañonismo. These activities have to be well organized since it is necessary to use ropes, adequate equipment and for some activities you need advanced techniques to rappel and climb. If we choose to return we will go back to Las Vegas or continue our route to other beautiful National Parks that await us in the same state of Utah or other adjoining states.
