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.
What makes The Escape Adventures Experience so unique?
Our Commitment to You
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
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.

What Our Guests Say
I simply must give you feedback on Wednesday morning's Red Rock Canyon bike tour with Kirk. Having just arrived in town following a week of visiting Canyonlands, Arches, Capitol Reef, Bryce and Zion National Parks, I didn't know what to expect.
WOW! Sure, the beauty of Red Rocks is amazing but Kirk made it even better. His enthusiasm for the park, knowledge, patience to let us stop to take pictures, calm when my chain derailed and pleasant demeanor made this the highlight of our trip.
Kirk is a gem ... an asset to your organization.
Thanks for a great time.
Just wrapped up our 5 day grand canyon north rim biking trip. Bobby and Cheston put together an absolutely unforgettable trip. The camping, the food, and of course, the biking, were impeccable. As a beginner MTB rider I was a bit apprehensive, but I immediately felt the support and encouragement of these amazing guides. True to their name, this outfitter delivers a first rate escape and adventure. I can't recommend them enough. Thank you!
My husband and I enjoyed a fantastic bike tour of Red Rock Canyon with the ever fabulous Chris G. Chris knows the area intimately and is very thorough and thoughtful, making sure you have all the information and supplies you need to maximize the enjoyment of the experience. We could not have enjoyed our trip more and recommend Chris and Escape Adventures enthusiastically. --Ronit
Chris led myself & 3 others through the red rock canyon of the Mojave desert by the spring mountain.
We rode $4,000-5,000 top quality full suspension bikes provided by this company. This tour provided bikes, water, helmets, guided tour & transportation to and from the vast choices of single track trails.
This is a must do experience in the Las Vegas area.
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.
The Maze Just completed the Escape Adventures The Maze mountain bike adventure in Canyonland’s Maze District. What a fantastic trip in a spectacular landscape! Lunch at the Harvest Scene was my trip highlight. Our guides, Carson Oliver and Will B., were awesome! We had some cool group chemistry and the food was so good. Carson and Will created such a relaxed trip environment. Well done!!
Mountain biking in the Maze Just got back from an incredible experience with Escape Adventures riding the Maze in Canyonlands National Park. I can’t praise the guides enough for their attention to eveyone’s enjoyment and also the awesome food. THe trip was incredible due to the beauty of the location and the guidance and laughs from the tour leaders.
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.
