The Escape Adventures Experience

Stop, go outdoors. Take a deep breath. Ride, Hike, Relax. Experience it all. Welcome to Escape Adventures.

Escape Adventures is often imitated, but never duplicated

Since 1992, we have innovated adventure travel. We were the first to bring multi-day off road touring to Taos New Mexico, Escalante and Brianhead Utah, Arkansas and Nevada to name a few. We built the only support vehicle that could take guests all the way into the Maze District of Canyonlands National Park. We brought signature food recipes to backcountry camping that are now staples on many of our clients dining room tables. We were the first to offer full suspension bikes in the bike touring business. The first and only company that has built environmentally friendly, LEED Platinum- Net Zero Energy facilities to house both operational and retail business. We standardized the bicycle rack systems to haul bicycles safely across the rough desert terrain of Moab Utah. We annually are often one of the few companies that clears downfall on the trails we use.

For over 25 years, the hallmark of an Escape Adventures tour is personalized, hands-on service. Before, during, and after each trip. We are a company of honesty and integrity and we stand behind our product 100%. From the moment you learn of our trips, to the time you return home and start planning your next trip, we are here to bring you the best possible experience.

From our Guaranteed Trip Departure Confirmation Policy, making sure your trip is never cancelled, to our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee Policy, backing the unrivaled consistent quality of all our tours, our commitment to you is never compromised.

Our Commitment to The Environment

Our environmental commitment is second to none. It is our way of doing business, our way of being.

At Escape Adventures, we want to make the world a better place. More importantly we believe in leading by example. We run our tours the same way we run our company, with an eye on the triple bottom line: People, Profit & Planet. This means we treat our customers, our community, and our planet with respect, and let our business grow organically. We have always run a value-based and mission-driven company.

At Escape Adventures, we elected to pursue a more comprehensive approach to actually reduce our carbon footprint, rather than just offset it. We overhauled our entire operation — from our vehicles, to our buildings, to our procedures — to become an outdoor industry leader in the charge to help our people and our planet.

Exceptional Service, Exceptional Trip Leaders

Escape Adventures Bike Tour Guide

Leading tours naturally followed from our passion of exploring our favorite places with our friends. As we’ve expanded our service throughout the years from daily biking tours to a vast selection of multi-day mountain biking, road biking, hiking, and multi-sport tours across the nation, our philosophy hasn’t changed. For us it’s all about enjoying and protecting the natural environment and sharing the places and activities we love.

Our support staff includes our reservation team who is there to answer your questions about the tours, our service team who prepares your bike and gear for the tour, and our guide team – the ones who take you into the great outdoors. The highest level of responsibility, good nature, integrity, and dedication are standard traits of all those who work at Escape Adventures. We our proud of it and we think you should know it.

The Best Support Vehicles

Having custom-made vehicles allows us to take you to places few other outfitters can, or will go. Every Escape Adventures tour is accompanied by at least one support vehicle, trailer, and in some cases a second and third transfer van. As you thumb through our catalog, you will also notice our vehicles are big, tough, and different. These are not stock vehicles. After purchase, we custom engineer our trucks, vans, and trailers by our on-staff mechanic to meet the unique needs of different tours. For example, certain trucks are specifically designed for The White Rim and The Maze, while others are designed for The Grand Tetons and Yellowstone. We also innovate and try new things with our fleet; Notably, in 2007, we converted many of our support vehicles to vegetable-oil burning engines. We were able to reduce our carbon footprint significantly for more than 5 years! Amazingly, we didn’t sacrifice performance.

It doesn’t just end with a great support vehicle, you need experienced and qualified drivers. Each of our guides is required to be trained in safe vehicle operation, 4X4 driving, and basic maintenance. Our experienced guides make it look easy, transporting you and up to 12 guests, along with their bikes, fresh food, camping gear and plenty of drinking water to a remote location.

The Best Bicycles and Gear

Arizona-North Rim of the Grand Canyon Mountain Bike Tour

Make your trip as comfortable as possible on the body, as simple as possible for traveling, and hasstle free on tour. By choosing to rent a bike from us, we will fit you with the newest, highest quality gear in the industry. Escape Adventures provides only high-end bicycles from Santa Cruz and Specialized. We replace our rental fleet each season to ensure all our rentals meet our standards. All of our mountain bikes are equipped with full suspension frames and disc brakes designed for a smooth, comfortable ride. For those who are touring with a companion who may not be as fit or need a little help up the hills, we now have eMountainbikes (electric pedal assist) available on select tours.

Camping gear may be rented or you may bring your own. All of our camping gear is tested and hand-chosen from top manufacturers to ensure you get a good nights’ sleep. Our camp gear package includes a three-man tent with fly and a ground tarp, 30-degree sleeping bag, bag liner, camp pillow, and self-inflating ground pad.

The Best Food

Our food isn’t just good, it’s good for you. Food is a big part of the Escape Adventures experience. Our guides prepare all of your meals on our camping trips, while most dinners and breakfasts are served at local restaurants on our inn tours. Expect three delicious meals a day consisting entirely of freshly prepared foods. These include fresh organic fruits and vegetables as well as meats. We also have energy snacks aboard our support vehicles. Don’t be surprised if your guides purchase fresh fruits and healthy snacks throughout the day while you are out riding. They may just show up on the trail with a local treat!

On our Camping Tours guides prepare gourmet meals out in the open, grilling fajitas over an open fire and baking enchilada pie in an outdoor Dutch oven. Some of our guests’ favorite guide specialties include blueberry pancakes for breakfast, veggie-feta wraps and pasta for lunch, and bruschetta, stuffed mushrooms and deep dish pizza for dinner. And we don’t forget the dessert either- from pineapple upside down cake to chocolate fondue, there’s sure to be something to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Many of our guests are vegans or vegetarians, whom we are more than happy to accommodate. If you have special diet requirements or limitations, just let us know when you sign-up and we’ll work with you to meet your needs.

The Best and Most Unique Accommodations

We know that a good night’s sleep is the key to a great day of adventure. With Escape Adventures you are able to experience unique style and local hospitality in the best inns and campsites available.

Luxury Inns and Premiere Restaurants

When we refer to the term Luxury, we refer to, “the very best”. Our founder, Jared Fisher, not only claims a professional education in Hotel and Restaurant Management, he’s also a student of the culinary arts. His working knowledge and familiarity with elite hospitality carried over to the selection of our lodgings. Each Luxury Inn was handpicked in advance: the criteria being 4-5-star service, room quality, and cultural themes. Our restaurants are chosen in a similar fashion: emphasizing experience and culture, but with particular attention paid to best local ingredients. Look for Luxury Inns and Restaurants on select tours.

Casual Inns, Cool Hotels, and Cozy Cabins

Casual Inns, Cool Hotels, Cozy Cabins | Escape Adventures

Because of the nature of our very remote trekking and traveling locales, we retire to only the best, handpicked hotels and available inns. Put another way, we take your decompression seriously. Our Casual Inn tours provide the best of both worlds: enjoy exciting outdoor adventures by day; then return to town each evening for a scrumptious meal. Followed by bedding down warm and ultra comfortably.

We choose inn accommodations that add another rather distinct dimension to your travel. From special amenities like hot tubs and fireplaces, to historic character and unique charm, our inns offer you something extra. While the inns featured on our tours vary from rustic cabins to luxurious spa retreats, we always seek out lodging to enhance and complement the unique flavor of each destination. After all, your evenings shouldn’t be a break from an outstanding trip, but rather a flawless extension of it.

Escape Adventures has developed a special program to seek out and support only high quality, if not most environmentally conscious suppliers. This operating mindset ensures that those who furnish accommodations on our trips share our passion for protecting our environment. So not only do all of our inns offer outstanding service and reliable, inviting accommodations, many also share concern for our communities. And the only planet we have.

First-Class Camping

The food tastes better, the sky is certainly bigger, and your mind is clearer.

There is nothing better than rolling into camp to fresh made chips and salsa, homemade guacamole, and Dutch oven enchiladas. Then making your way to a sweet and inviting campfire, sharing your favorite anecdote or image from the day’s activities while marshmallows roast. Enjoy a small-batch, local beer before retiring to your tent. Inside: a sturdy raised cot, fluffy sleeping bag, and a plush full size pillow. Wow. You earned this. Sweet dreams.

We choose well-maintained public campgrounds with scenic vistas and comfortable arrangements. You’ll move seamlessly from one day of your trip to the next, camping outdoors and enjoying wildly healthy, delicious homemade meals.

The majority of our selected campgrounds feature indoor facilities and showers. Conversely, in more remote backcountry camping scenarios, we’ll provide portable toilets and private solar showers.

Camping gear may be rented or you may bring your own. All of our camping gear is tested and hand-chosen from top manufacturers to ensure you get a good nights’ sleep. Our camp gear package includes a three-man tent with fly and a ground tarp, 30-degree sleeping bag, bag liner, camp pillow, and self-inflating ground pad.

The Most Traveling Options

Year after year our guests return with their family and friends. Why? Because we build each trip around your needs. We work within your financial boundaries to make your trip the best value. Our Guaranteed Trip Departure Confirmation, 100% Satisfaction Guarantee, Price Match Guarantee, and Loyal Guest Program are a few reasons nearly all of our guests return year after year.

The Original Escape Adventures Trip

An Escape Adventure trip is a great way to enjoy the company of other active travelers and the camaraderie of shared interests. Travel Solo or with a friend- or two. A cornerstone to our trips are small groups. For over 25 years, Escape Adventures has been taking outdoor enthusiasts beyond the “average” vacation and into the exciting world of small-group adventure travel. Our Guide to Guest ratio is the best in the industry, with an average of 1 guide for every 5 guests. Our small groups of 6 to 13 guests allow for flexible schedules, individualized service, comfort, and deeper backcountry adventure. Don’t be surprised if you come away from your tour with more friends than you had when you arrived!

Many of our tours include guests traveling on their own. Our structured tours and small groups are ideal for solo travelers. On Inn Tours we offer a single-supplement to guarantee you have your own room, or you can let us try to pair you up and share a room with 2 queen beds with another traveler. If we don’t find you a match, you still get your own room at no additional cost to you.

Summer E Bike Ride The wife and I enjoyed a great ride led by our guide Irving through the Canyon. Beautiful scenery, Irving was very professional and helpful in teaching us how to ride the e bikes and leading the ride. Bonus points for seeing the pack of wild donkeys off the side of the road.

6 day family camping/biking/hiking trip to Bryce Canyon and Zion My wife, I and our two 9 year old twins just returned from a 6 day camping, mountain biking and hiking trip in Bryce Canyon and Zion. We're not avid outdoors people or super athletic, so weren't sure how well the experience would turn out, especially for the kids- but we had a fantastic experience! Merrick and Katie were our guides for the trip and they did a great job of ensuring that each of us had a great experience- at each of our individual paces and endurance levels. We had the chance to experience the great outdoors as a family, learn new experiences, and end the trip wanting to do more! Merrick was a fantastic cook and was great with the kids. Definitely a great experience and we highly recommend it, especially for families looking for an experience like this to expose their kids to new adventures and a new appreciation for the outdoors.

Fantastic hike! My husband and I stayed on the Vegas strip for a few days and knew we wanted get away to hike at Red Rocks. After reading reviews and weighing the cost options, we decided to go with the guided tour. Thank goodness we did! In hindsight, there is no way we would be able to navigate the canyon and end up with the fabulous views. Pickup and drop off at the hotel was easy. Irv was great in explaining the 3 options (we chose option 2) and was awesome about challenging us without making us uncomfortable a bit. We are not hiking experts by any means but are decently active, and option 2 was perfect. If you’re considering going on a guided hike, just do it!! More

Trail of the Ancients with the best guides ever! My boyfriend, his daughter and I did a 6 day mountain biking tour with Escape Adventures this spring and it was a fantastic trip! Merrick, Troy and Ike were our guides and the knowledge and expertise they all had made the trip wonderful. The guys were so careful to service and accommodate our individual skill levels and made sure the trip was fun and challenging for each of us. We laughed and laughed, we had deep conversations by the fire at night, those that chose to shared our personal histories and yet I never felt that there was too much togetherness with them. They were respectful of our privacy and never intruded. Troy's cooking was over the top delicious and he was more than happy to share recipes. Merrick has got to be the coolest mountain biking guide in the western US and Ike was eager to give me asked for tips on meditation retreats and might have the best Spotify playlist out there. I would absolutely choose to have these three guide me on my next Moab trip. I miss them! More

Fun on the Mustang Trail We had a great experience on the Mustang Trail with our guide, Irving. He was on time at our agreed-upon pickup point, and we found him to be very polite and personable throughout our time together. He knows the trails in the area like the back of his hand. That knowledge enabled him to provide a couple of riders with little desert mtb experience with a ride that was challenging, yet still allowed us to have fun. Irving did a good job ensuring we took a few breaks along the way, encouraged us to stay hydrated, and provided us with a cool video summary of our tour from an app he had started using. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Irving to any tour group, regardless of skill level. The bikes provided by Escape Adventures were current model year and well-maintained full suspension Specialized Stumpjumpers. Both bikes fit us well. They were well suited to the terrain. The helmets were also current year Specialized. There were fully adjustable via the MIPS system, so they fit snugly and worked well. As I said earlier, Irving carried plenty of water for us. If you've never ridden mountain bikes off-road, it would be smart to consider: full-fingered mtb gloves, bike shorts or liners, stiff-soled cycling shoes or cross trainers,and quality wrap-around sunglasses. I am very fair-skinned, so I wore a long sleeved shirt made of wicking fabric. Otherwise, sun block would be smart as... We had a great experience on the Mustang Trail with our guide, Irving.

Red Rock 2 Hour Bike Ride Picked up from hotel and dropped off with bikes at the Red Rock Visitor Center. Did the 2 hour 24 mile ride through the canyon and back to the Bike Shop. Faultless service and support from the Escape Adventures team. Fantastic experience. Bucket list item ticked!

Unforgettable Multi Sports Activity Trip to Jackson Hole & Yellowstone My wife & I came all the way from argentina to visit Yellowstone and the Jackson Hole Area with some American friends. They told us to hire Escape Adventures.

It was perfect. All the organization, the guides, Ike and Troy! We miss them. They taught us so many things about bicycles , hiking, climbing , rafting. They knew the Area very well and shared their passion for nature and sports.

It was a private tour, great food, great hotels and restaurants. Also very flexible. The Van super comfortable.

For us , ir was a first to visit a place while doing sports and it was UNFORGETABLE.

The bicycles were carbon fiber , ultra light, we got all the equipment including shirts.

I think we want to come back soon , either here or in any other area where Escape Adventures offers.

Highly recommended for Nature and Sport Lovers More

Perfect break from the Vegas strip! We did a guided hike of Red Rock Canyon on Sunday, June 2nd, after spending the previous two days on the strip. This could not have been more of a welcome retreat and escape into nature that we needed. We were picked up right on time and our group included four others of various ages. Our guide was super friendly, knowledgeable of the Canyon, and did a fantastic job of keeping a pace that was good for everyone in the group. I highly recommend booking a tour with Escape Adventures. I know we will when we return to Vegas!

Red Rock Canyon Hiking Tour We had a wonderful time at the Red Rock Canyon hiking trails today. Irvin was out driver and guide and was very friendly and fun! He recommended the best spots for pictures and was nice to take pictures of us. He gave us three choices of hike! Thanks, Irvin! We chose to go in the morning rather than the afternoon, which is recommended because of the heat! We all agree that it was money well spent ️

Great Vegas day trip mountain biking with Irving Myself and two female friends did the morning half day Cottonwood Valley and Mustang Trail trip with Irving. From the online booking right til the end of the trip we were very impressed with the organization and professionalism of the organization. Irving was a fantastic guide. We were promptly picked up at the Bellagio in a clean comfortable van and driven to the trail head. Bikes were pre-sized and tuned, water provided. Irving assessed the riding abilities of all people in the party and led a fun, but still safe, trip out and back. Would highly recommend this trip as a great escape from the Vegas strip.

Red Rock I’m out here for work and just had to get to Red Rock Canyon but wanted a guide. I randomly found this place online and so glad I did. Irving picked us up from the hotel and was so friendly, engaged in conversation and gave up our options as to which hike we wanted to take. He was very knowledgeable about the environment answering questions and pointing things out throughout the hike, gave ample opportunity for breaks and motivated us when we needed it. When I come back I plan on using this same company. Escape Adventures is highly recommended by me.

Loved my hike with Irving! I went on a morning hike with only one other guest and Irving and we all had a wonderful time! Irving was incredible! He answered every question that we had and pointed out some really cool things along the hike. We all got along so well that we ended the trip as old friends. The entire trip was absolutely beautiful! I look forward to returning to Las Vegas and booking another hike with your company!

May visit to Moab – Fantastic Experience! Over the course of 3 days, we biked, hiked and explored some truly gorgeous spots around Moab. We biked through Castle Valley, the sheer size of the area will blow your mind and even found some petroglyphs and pictographs!

Our guides were also fantastic and were extremely knowledgable of local history and the outdoors. The food was great and they even prepared lunch for along our cycling route.

Overall would book again!
