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.

We had a fabulous morning cycling around red rock canyon on a self guided tour. We were picked up and dropped off as organised by Irving, who was super friendly and lovely. One of us hadn't ridden a bike for years and she loved it. Highly recommended

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!

Death Valley & Red Rocks -- great time with EA! We did the 5-day MTB excursion to Beatty, Death Valley and Red Rocks. Had a great time, and our guides Troy, Dylan and Will were outstanding. Chef Troy is a culinary magician - making 5-star meals out of the sag wagon in the middle of the desert. We looked forward to the food almost as much as the riding. The terrain got pretty rough (aka "chunky") at times, so the less-experienced among us -- like me -- struggled through some sections. I wish the MTB world had a more universal rating system like skiing (green/blue/black) so riders could calibrate themselves onto the right trails. Overall it was a great time, superbly organized by EA. I would ride with them again. More

Fantastic Hike - Thank you Irving! A truly memorable hiking experience in Red Rock Canyon! Irving was an exceptional guide...knowledgeable, experienced, informative and supportive. Our group consisted of four mid-fifty-year-olds that wanted the challenge and exertion and Irving helped us choose the best path for the optimum views!

As some of the climbs required a bit of bending, stretching, reaching and pulling, Irving was there to cheer on the less-athletic among us, which was greatly appreciated. His knowledge of the region was amazing (no question went unanswered) and his intrinsic passion for what he does was palpable. He was happy to be there, and teach, and share the canyon with us. An absolute gem of a guide!

We will be back in the future and will be choosing Escape Adventures. Irving, get ready for the pack of 60-year-olds... More

Fantastic outing We booked the self guided bike trip through Red Rock Canyon. You can rent road bikes or E-assist bikes on this tour. We are experienced cyclists, but decided to get the E-assist because we didn't know what the route was like and hey, coming from Michigan it was the first ride of the year for us!. I'm really glad we got the E-assist as it gave us the opportunity to have a relaxed ride, stop and take pictures, have a snack etc. What's nice is you can turn off the assist and get some exercise, then turn it on as needed. There are some decent hills! The route is one way, and even though there is car traffic, we never felt squeezed... The road is big!. The scenery was gorgeous. We did the ride back to the bike shop at the end, for a total of 24 miles. I will say, we used every minute, getting back to the shop a couple minutes late. Actual bike time was about 2:15. I don't know if the business offers this, but a longer rental where you could lock the bikes up and do a little hike while out there would be great! We were picked up in town and dropped off near the canyon entrance. The driver was very friendly and gave us very good instructions. The bikes were in excellent shape and c'mon, they are Specialized!. I would definitely do this... We booked the self guided bike trip through Red Rock Canyon.

Great Mountain Bike Ride My brother and I came to Las Vegas a day early to enjoy a mountain bike tour. Escape Adventures and Irving our guide went above and beyond our expectations to make sure we had a great ride. We were running a little late and Irving made sure we were still ok to ride. He took us on a great half day tour. Thank you again to Irving and Chris in the office for making a memorable ride.

So fun! My husband and I did the half day mountain bike tour. Irving was on time, friendly and very knowledgeable. This was our first time on mountain bikes. Irving was very patient and told us when we might want to get off and walk our bikes, which we did several times. He seemed to know when we needed a break and took lots of pics for us. It was challenging and really beautiful. I would highly recommend it!

I booked a trip to ride my mountain bike on the Black Canyon Trail in AZ.  I drove to AZ from San Diego.  Meet two guides, Troy & Will, who were expert in making an outdoor adventure fantastic.  Nice to have all the logistics taken care of, as well as expert cooks making tasty meals.  Go to their website.  The company is more than just a Las Vegas ride hookup, book a trip!
