Domestic outdoor travel is a category that most think travelers will focus on as we emerge from the pandemic. That’s why we wanted to highlight this program offered by Escape Adventures (plus we liked the video above).
Escape Adventures is offering a unique bike and camp tour traversing Utah’s 100-mile White Rim Trail in Canyonlands National Park, a natural rollercoaster, looping in and out of a multi-colored array of spires, arches, buttes, and mesas carved by the Green and Colorado Rivers. A primitive path framed by blooming cacti below and snow-capped mountains above, the White Rim Trail loops around and below the Island in the Sky mesa top and provides expansive views of the surrounding area.
Guests on Escape Adventures’ program will spend the majority of their four-day mountain biking and camping tour riding this famous off-road route, while detouring to admire secret passages, hidden slot canyons, natural rock arches and ancient Puebloan ruins. The trip, including first-class camping accommodations, starts at $999 per person land only. E-bikes are available upon request. Tours run March-May and September-October.
“The steep, exposed sections of the Shafer Trail, Lathrop Canyon Road, Murphy Hogback, Hardscrabble Hill, and the Mineral Bottom switchbacks make the White Rim loop a very rewarding and scenic mountain bike ride,” said Escape Adventures Director Jared Fisher. “While enjoying the beauty of the nature that surrounds us, we will also appreciate the modern amenities like our custom support truck, gourmet meals, top-of-the-line camping equipment, and attentive guides.”
Escape Adventures’ multi0day odyssey through some of the most gorgeous terrain imaginable loops around the Island in the Sky mesa top within Canyonlands. Riders can take plenty of pictures of along the way as they pass an array of stop-offs and scenic overlooks of both the Colorado River and the Green River far below. The ride mostly involves casual double-track, enjoyable for most people, from novice riders to families.
All internal land expenses and services are covered as part of the cost of this tour. This means from the time Escape Adventures picks guests up, all transportation, food preparation, meals (except where noted on itineraries), snacks, non-alcoholic beverages, group supplies and community gear (portable chairs, large awnings, coolers, utensils, etc.) are included.
