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, raised cot, camp pillow, and sleeping 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.

White Rim Mountain Bike Tour We spent 4 days/3 nights on this mountain bike tour of the White Rim trail. The trip was fantastic, and the guiding seamless. We had 2 guides - Will B. and James. They were energetic, supportive, and professional throughout. We were continually surprised by the delicious, whole food meals they prepared from scratch. We have nothing but positive things to say about this trip!

Red Rock Hiking with Irving This experience was great starting with the booking. We were able to book the day before very easily and the communication was top notch. We had an amazing experience hiking Red Rock Canyon from the time we were picked up to the time we were dropped off. Irving was very knowledgeable, engaging, and just a pleasure to spend the morning with. The trail and the views did not disappoint! We were very happy with our experience and would definitely book again in the future!

Escape Adventures - LOVE this trip. (Best of MOAB) We took the “Best of Moab” mountain bike tour (Weekend , 3 day bike). Outstanding. Our leaders, Will and Tanner were awesome. They realize early that our abilities were not up for some of the planned trails and easily changed our agenda to make the trip more enjoyable. They were helpful with suggestions on how to be better bikers. The food was awesome. I have been on more expensive trips with guided tours and these guys were every bit as good. I will be back soon. Escape Adventures proved very worthy. If you are completely inexperienced, then take a private tour so they can tailor a trip for you. If you happen to be much more experienced they will find trails that are more challenging. Amazing value for the money.

Canyonlands "Maze" Wilderness Adventure Mountain Biking Maze District of Canyonlands National Park

Just completed a 5 day mountain bike/hike around and into "The Maze".
This was a fabulous trip, mid May, with challenges of wind, water and sand, pretty standard for the wild west.

We just loved the guides (Troy, Will B and Tanner) their support, their cooking and expertise. Received lots of attention and encouragement . Friendly group.

The food was better than imagined, all fresh, with lots of fruits and veges, tasty meals, with attention to traveller's needs and detail. Plenty of it. Really delicious!

The peace of being completely alone was unbelievable. And the scenery, in every direction, was to behold.
This trip was a beautiful, challenging, rare opportunity to experience a part of the world that few people ever see.

Mountain Biking Maze District of Canyonland National Park Very unique experience! The maze area of canyon land is very remote and hard to get to. It is the least visited area of canyonlands national park for this reason, yet it holds some of the most one of a kind views, formations and experiences. Escape adventures, specifically guides Will B. and Carson, provided great guide and support services for this adventure. Everyday was amazing and physically challenging. Will and Carson made sure we had plenty of water and food to keep us going. The food was way better than what you would expect for primative camp sites. The camp sites themselves left you staring out into the park in amazement. The landscape was the star of the show. It was always changing. I woke up excited every morning to see the Sun rise and show the canyons in a new light. Great group of people on this trip. So many laughs and memories I have not stoped talking about this experience. I highly recommend this adventure and Escape Adventures.

White Rim 4 day 3 night Rode the White Rim (4 day, 3 night) with Merick and Kelsey. We had amazing guides that left us wanting for nothing. Merick suggested awesome side tours like small hikes and an amazing slot canyon tour. All food prepared was perfect! This is the way to tour the White Rim. Why would you try to do it on your own when Escape Adventures has it dialed in already? Ask for Merick (sp?) and Kelsey. They are the best!!

Best way to experience The Maze District / Arches National Park 5 days mountain biking and hiking through the rugged and remote Maze District of Arches National Park. I couldn’t have imagined how impactful this trip would be. May 5-13 gave us perfect conditions.
The support crew (Will B. And Carson) were phenomenal. Personable, professional, knowledgeable, encouraging, entertaining and damn hard working.
Don’t sign up for this trip hoping to lose weight, Both the guides are culinary camp cuisine wizards, the food was amazing, super healthy and plentiful!
Don’t sign up unless you’re seeking a truly rugged and challenging adventure.
Do sign up if you’re looking for life long memories, becoming a better human and pushing your physical limits.
Can’t say enough about this tour. Be epic.
Just go.

Awesome White Rim 4 Day Tour Had an amazing experience with escape adventures. We did the White Rim tour with Will and Kelsey and they were both amazing hosts. The food was spectacular and we never went hungry! We had a full 3 meals a day and didn't have to worry about anything but biking! The views were amazing and the route was well planned. We got very with our weather and it was perfect the whole trip.

Remember to bring a swimsuit! The last night the campsite is on the river and you have the option to go for a swim!

Maze Mtn Bike tour I did the 4 night/5 day tour of the Maze with guides Troy and Will, and it was spectacular. Such amazing scenery and fun riding/hiking in one of the most remote areas I've ever been to - this is for sure the best way to explore Canyonlands! Troy and Will were fantastic guides (and chefs), providing amazing fresh food throughout the whole trip and giving us lots of great tips and tricks for mountain biking, since it was very new to most of us. The bikes themselves were top-notch, the itinerary was well-planned out and had some of the best campsites I've ever been to, and the whole experience made for the perfect week off. Highly recommend to anyone interested in exploring Canyonlands - there is something for everyone on this trip... In addition to the hiking/biking, there's a chance to swim in the Colorado river, see ancient pictographs and a granary, and check out some of the best stars anywhere in the country. Thanks for a great trip, would definitely look for more Escape Adventures trips!

White Rim Mountain Biking Did the White Rim guided tour with Escape Adventures last week. It was an epic adventure and our guides (Will and Carson) did an outstanding job of making sure the 6 of us (all different levels of skill) were safe, had fun and ate delicious food. Equipment was state of the art & the drop seats really spoiled us. Thanks for a great trip and looking forward to next time.

Beginner Mountain Bike adventure Christian was our guide for our beginner ride near Red Rock. He was charismatic and ready with lots of information about the area. He listened to our needs concerning our riding level, distance, and pace. We will definitely book a trip again and are so excited to see the city coming back following a very tough year for the tourism industry.

Mountain Biking along The White Rim! This trip was amazing! We took 4 days to bike and camp along The White Rim and it blew us away. The scenery was out of this world beautiful. Our guides, Troy and Kelsey, were so accommodating, helpful, knowledgeable, fun, kind, and best of all, were amazing chefs!

We had a great time with them in Moab last week. We took our 3 kids--the food was excellent, the itinerary was great, and the mountain biking was outstanding. Thank you Merrick and Carter (our guides) for making it such a memorable week. We look forward to seeing you again next year!
