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 are often one of the few companies that annually 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

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

Escape Adventures tour bikes

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

Escape Adventures casual inn tour lodging

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 Mtn Bike Tour with Escape Adventures Our trip with Escape Adventures for the 4 day White Rim Trail in Canyonlands National Park was phenomenal. Escape Adventures basically nailed every aspect of the trip. The route and riding and side trips off the trail were perfect. The rental mountain bike was very good, the camping equipment was exactly what was needed. The food they provided was tremendous. Our guides, Gavin and Rachel, did an awesome job. They were helpful and hard working and knowledgeable and friendly. And the other guests were great and we enjoyed our time during and after the riding.

Incredible day trip! Booked this as a last minute adventure for a friend and I while we were in Vegas for a work conference. Didn’t have much of an idea of what to expect but this trip exceeded all of the expectations. The scenery was absolutely stunning, perfect weather, and our tour guide Christine, was wonderful. Wear sturdy shoes, or better yet, hiking boots because there are a fair amount of rocks. But if you’re thinking about taking a trip to Red Rock while you’re in Vegas, this is absolutely the way to do it!

If you ride - this is a must do! My initial time slot was cancelled, but Escape was quick to let me know and very helpful in rescheduling. They set up the bike with spd clips upon request. The guide Zach was great. We talked about experience and comfort level on the terrain. He took the first mile or so the assess my riding and he offered several route options ranging from more technical to more flowy. I opted for the more technical - the added challenge was a blast and Zach did a great job showing the lines to take. The regular stops were welcomed by this flat lander at altitude and provided opportunity to take some pictures of the amazing scenery.

Stunning landscape and great guide This was a great hike! We went on the Turtle Head Peak
trail with guide Christina. It was a moderately difficult trail but well worth the effort. The landscape is astounding! Christina gave us lots of information about the area and tended to all hikers with aplomb. I’m glad I booked this wonderful tour.

Off the strip, and on the trail. It was very exciting experience and well worth it. A hike with incredible views the entire time. Christine and Zack were the tour guides. They picked us up on time had water and snack bars, and plenty of information. We don’t hike much but we’re in decent shape and this hike was no problem. It’s close to Las Vegas.

Great Escape from the Strip! Just fantastic. If you need to be in Vegas for work, but the Strip isn’t your thing, this is the perfect way to get away from the hotels and chaos and to breath fresh air for 3-4 hours. Nick was a great guide. The trail was a little tougher than expected, but it was worth it.

A great afternoon hike, beautiful and fun Great hiking tour with our very knowledgeable guide Christine, who ensured everyone had a great time together. The landscapes were breathtaking and the hiking pace perfect (adapted to everyone in the group). I certainly enjoyed this breath of fresh air and the exercise after 3 days locked in a conference room, and just before my flight home. Thanks!

Peaceful Hike While, I forgot my tour guide name. She was amazing. Easy to talk to a kind spirit and knowledgeable. She took her time with me since I was solo. The ride there and back was a good vibe. I really appreciate she had snacks and water.

Fantastic time - definitely recommend! Absolutely fantastic time! Christine was a great guide! She was personable and super knowledgeable.

The original trail we were supposed to hike was closed due to rain so she improvised and we went on another trail. We were lucky enough to see a gorgeous waterfall due to the rain!

The Canyon scenery is also utterly gorgeous, simply breathtaking.

Would absolutely recommend this to anyone, and will 100% take this tour again when back in Nevada.

Calico Tanks Trail in Red Rock Canyon Great hike, beautiful scenery and fantastic view of Las Vegas from the top! We were very well looked after by our guide Christine! She kindly did a quick stop on our way back to LV so that I could take a photo of a Joshua Tree (fellow U2 fans will understand 😉). I highly recommend the hike 👍🏻

Excellent way to see Red Rock Canyon This is a great way to see Red Rock Canyon. Hiking would be a close second for me, yet we covered the whole loop road with the e bikes. So beautiful. The bikes were all in like new condition. We were 10 people total including Zach the guide who was friendly and attentive to the whole group incorporating breaks as needed. A water bottle was provided upfront and a welcome snack at the end of the ride.

A must-do Christina, our guide, was excellent. She was super friendly, engaging and knowledgeable. She was patient with the group members who needed an extra hand or guidance. This was a great trip. Definitely worth the $$. The area is breath-taking. This is a trip you will remember for a long time.

A must do to get away from the Vegas strip for 1/2 a day! Riding mountain bikes is so much fun. A fantastic experience - catered for intermediate abilities. We cycled mostly green and blue trails. Surrounded by stunning views, Joshua trees and cacti. The bikes were high end and in awsome condition. Our guide Mariah was fantastic catering to the individual needs of our small group of 4. Loved it loved it! Mariah was so friendly and welcoming and I would highly recommend this experience!

Bike ride in the mountains This trip was unique. The ride was more than I expected as the road was very hilly. Davis was very nice and drove us to the top of the hill so we could enjoy the ride down. The beauty of the landscape was unforgettable.
