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.

Road Bike Tour in Bryce and Zion Guides Will and Ike were terrific - hospitable, fun, resourceful, organized, conversational and well acquainted with the route. Most of the scenery was breathtaking... everything I imagined it would be, and more! Do a tour with EA and enjoy the experience!

Zion and Bryce Canyon road biking tour Awesome tour! First time road biking this amount of mileage and loved every minute! We were all able to stay at our own pace while still feeling like we belonged in the group. Ike and Will are outstanding guides. Their love for biking and the outdoors is contagious. The food exceeded my expectations. These boys know how to cook! Camping locations and gear were all great too. We even had a run in with D Jesus, the actor from the movie. Definitely recommend this scenic trip and hope to plan another tour with escape adventures soon!

Just completed the Bryce/Zion road bike tour this afternoon. Cannot say enough good things about the trip and especially our guides Ike and Will. The mileage each day was very manageable and the others in the group were super friendly and easy going. Very important for making a pleasant vacation. The stops for meals and for camping for the nights were thoughtful and organized, not to mention beautiful sites. Camping equipment I rented was top notch. The guides were bike enthusiasts and great cooks and that made for a great combination. I would highly recommend both of these guys again. They were helpful, supportive and genuinely loved their jobs.

Best of Moab Tour MTB Great trip with our outstanding guides Will and Kathi. They were excellent riders who adhered the our group of mountain bikers. We were able to do two challenging rides per day, and we ate great at every meal. Our group had some shredders and some riders who were less experienced, and the tour worked great for all of us!

Best of Moab MTB I just completed the Best of Moab mtb camping trip with some friends. Our guides Will and Kate were outstanding. They laid out a challenging itinerary for the week while keeping us safe, comfortable, and well fed. They were very accommodating to our requests throughout the week while doing a great job of keeping us informed and entertained.

Me and my sister had a great time on our mountain bike tour of red rock canyon. We started at about 8am and by the end it was getting quite hot. I wouldn't recommend an afternoon ride in the summer. We did 7 miles total. Because I'm an intermediate rider and my sister is a beginner our guide led us through some flowy trails for the most part and occasionally took me on some more rocky technical bits while my sister stayed on the easy trails. I think most people who are in okay shape could do this tour even if you don't have any experience mountain biking.

GREAT Hike in beautiful surroundings! We did the most challenging hike in terms of elevation and it was a relatively easy hike. We would have liked a longer hike since we finished earlier than the allotted time (it was only 2 of use and our pace was faster than the typical pace) . However, the views were absolutely amazing and Irving was fantastic. He was knowledgeable, interesting and so much fun! He definitely added to the enjoyment of the half day!!

5 Day Bears Ears Manti-La Sal National Forest Mountain Biking and Hiking 5 days biking and several days of hiking to sites in and around the Bears Ears and the Manti-La Sal National Forest. The routing, the scenery, the sites, the food, and the guides were outstanding. Rachel and Will did a fabulous job guiding us around the area and making sure we were well fed and hydrated. There were several days of challenging elevation change, but well worth it from a workout perspective and a treat to reach a wonderful campsite area that included a wonderful view of the night stars without any light pollution.

5-Day Bear's Ears National Monument - Mountain Biking Trip - Fantastic This was an amazing, yet very hard (for me) mountain biking trip in the Bear's Ears National Monument and the Abajo Mountains. Our guides, Rachel and Will were very competent, professional, friendly and very client service focused...they made the trip that much better.

This was our third mountain biking trip with Escape Adventures. We are looking forward to our fourth.

Great half day hike, beautiful scenery! Took this hike as something to do besides gamble in Vegas while spouse was at a conference. Irving, our guide, was great!! It was just me and one other hiker so we had a lot of personal attention. We chose option two as the water was dried up at the time and option three had a lot of rounded boulders you could twist your ankle on. I considered myself in pretty good shape for a 60+ year old who had been working out five days a week all summer, but I didn't take into consideration that I live at three feet above sea level and we went up over 7,000 feet. Needless to say, I got a little out of breath at times, but Irving was great at anticipating when those times were. With a 24 year old guide and a 48 year old man in good shape as my two companions, this 60 year old lady struggled a bit to keep up, but was not going to give up and I just needed a little help up and down some really steep places. You need to be in shape to do option 2 or 3 or you will definitely not enjoy it. The views were amazing and so many colors besides red. If you are looking for some beautiful scenery and a great workout with your legs, this is a trip for you!! Bring a backpack with any items...

Bring a backpack with any items you want to carry so you have both hands free, and keep it light. Bring sunglasses, a hat, sunscreen, a good camera (this includes your phone) a sweat rag for your forehead and shoes with lots of traction. More

I found the Maah Daah Hey Trail in North Dakota brutal. Agonizing uphills, treacherous downhills, loose gravel, rusty barbed wire, wild swings in weather, menacing threats of mosquitoes, and copious amounts of cow poop. So much cow poop...

I discarded a set of shoes, mud caked socks, and two torn shirts before leaving the state. I still fear the laundry at the bottom of my travel bag.

However, EA’s personable guides Troy and Merrick were excellent hosts. They gave free-rein to the thrill-seekers early on to ride hard and fast. Their confidence and flexibility dealing with minor cycle troubles, unexpected hail, and a tender-footed newbie infected the group of strangers with a positive energy of teamwork.

We all ate much better than could be expected. I’m told that there was dessert all four evenings, but can only confirm that the first night. At the advanced hour of 7:00 p.m., I was too beat to partake the rest of the week.

The rented equipment seemed top of the line. I was never cold or wet or uncomfortable sleeping. I was assigned a maroon colored bike, which was great as it didn’t show any bloodstains. How did EA know?!

This Tour should NOT be attempted by the inexperienced cyclist. I believe that the website listed it as a ‘moderate’ tour. I’m (sincerely) not sure how accurate that is.

I don’t think that I’m qualified to give out stars. But hopefully these few sentences will entice (or terrify) the appropriate readers.

Great MTB day trip from Vegas Had a tremendous half day outing with Irving. Although all of us had different skill levels (I went with my girlfriend, and there was also another guy, making the total three), he was able to make all of us very happy with his selection of courses and rest times. He was also very funny and very knowledgeable about both bike and terrain. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone considering it!
