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.

Irving was great! Knew the trails well and provided us trail options throughout our ride for beginner to intermediate riders. Provided us with water and carried extra bottles for us in a backpack throughout the ride. Bikes were in great shape! I would definitely recommend Escape Adventures to any of my friends coming to Vegas!

My family and I did the half-day Mustang Trail Loop with Scott. We had a great time. Scott was punctual, professional, fun and knowledgable. He was able to work and encourage the novice side of the family and also keep the experienced riders happy. The bike setups were fantastic. We will definitely be back next time we are in town, and most certainly ask for Scott!

Great afternoon hike My wife and I had a great time on our hike at Red Rock Canyon. Our guide, Irving, was polite, knowledgeable and professional. He was on time picking us up and knew his way through the canyon. The sights were breathtaking. We were able to take lots of great photos. Irving even helped we with the photos! I would highly recommend this trip.

First rate operation! Awesome experience. I did the Red Rock Canyon road bike loop. The Escape Adventures employee Irwin was so helpful and super friendly. I needed different pedals and he was quick to find a solution. He did an outstanding job setting the stage for the day and was a pleasure to talk with. Book with these guys they have an great bike shop and operation.

Nice hike close to Las Vegas. Our guide Irving gave us a nice choice of hikes, and was engaging and informative. Close location to Las Vegas was a plus as there was less time driving and more time on the trail.

Book this tour-you will be so happy you did! I cannot say enough wonderful things about this company and our tour guide in particular-Irving! It's an excellent break from the craziness of the strip and the company is quite accommodating in their pick up and drop off locations. You are shuttled about 30 minutes outside of the Las Vegas strip to the Red Rock Canyon. Once there the group is given 3 different hike options based on difficulty and views. The hike we selected was the perfect amount of difficulty (especially for a newb like myself) and breathtaking scenery. Irving was an excellent guide with a thorough knowledge of local flora, fauna, and history. He also made sure we had everything we needed including some awesome photos for the gram 🙂

Overall a lovely experience that I would sign up for again in a heartbeat!

13/10 would recommend Irving was our guide and he so friendly and really went out of his way to make everybody feel comfortable. You have options as to which trail you want to take and he gives excellent advice to help you choose. We picked number 2 and the views were out of this world! Coming from indiana you don’t get to see mountains so it was definitely an experience that was worth the money. Irving made it all that much more enjoyable with his knowledge of the area and his friendly demeanor and he even went out of his way to take pictures of me and my boyfriend for us. I would definitely do it again!

Great Hike, Guide, and Location! I'm so glad we got off the Strip for a half day of hiking! The views were gorgeous, the guide was kind and fun, and we got some great photos. I learned a lot about the desert and got a great workout.

I was in town for CES and hooked up for a ride with Escape adventures, turned out that it was just me and Irving the guide. Everything was perfect, the riding was fabulous, I had never ridden the desert so out there I felt like I was Clint Eastwood riding my horse in a western. Irving is a top notch rider so you learn things. Trails are a blast, most fun I have had since Whistler. Rental bike was a new SC Tallboy, that bike felt like I owned it for years and it was flawless out there. Communication and transport was clear and coordinated. This run is one thing in Vegas worth the money, maybe I'll come back for the Hardware show so I can ride again!! Do it.

Mountain biking with Irving What an incredible way to get the most out of a late January morning. Or any morning....Patty and I are beginning mountain bikers but no strangers to road biking. Both of us 56, we wanted to experience something special outdoors in the mountains. The day couldn't have been better. Total professionalism is what we were greeted with from beginning to end. Doing an activity that could be dangerous, having the feeling you're in great hands is a feeling I appreciate. Irving made us feel that way. He explained, he taught, he listened, and he answered all our questions about the area. A wealth of local knowledge we were very thankful that he shared it with us. His patience, and interest in our lives was an added bonus as we told stories about ourselves and laughed and joked through most of the trip and on the bus ride back to the shop. It was an incredible day and will always stay very close to the top as a favorite memory. Irving took pictures and videos for us to make sure it will be a day we won't forget. Thank you Irving for taking our mountain biking day at Red Rock to another level. We hope that all your wishes and dreams come true. You surely deserve them. Tom and Patty

Calico Hills For my birthday weekend I decided to embark on as many out west hiking adventures as possible! Irving was my tour guide he was wonderful. There was only one other woman in my group which made it really easy to get the cardio aspect of being outside I was aiming for. I really recommend this if you want to get out and hike rather than stay grounded to the strip.

Mountain biking with Tour Guide Irving Our tour guide Irving was awesome. He not only exemplified his expertise in biking, but his knowledge of nature. During the tour he filled us with knowledge about the living creatures and plant life that live in the desert.. he supplied us with sugar drinks when we needed more energy, and plenty of water. Thank you Irving for an memorable experience. We will be sure to all of our friends and bike club members.

Fresh air, exercise and amazing views! Great to escape the smokey casinos and get out into the fresh air at Redrock Canyon. Our tour guide, Irvine, did a great job, engaging with all members of the group as we climbed and scrambled our way to the top. Fabulous views and great exercise, thoroughly recommended!

Great way to get out and see the Las Vegas nature Punctual pickup at Bellagio, we were a group of 10. Our guide did great job setting expectations, helping us pick the best 2 hour option based on group skill level. Having a beautiful day surely helped, also all the great bikes that were given to us.
