Slot Canyons

Slot canyons are a phenomenon of the east zion area.

East side of Zion National Park


Slot canyons get their name from narrow and tall canyons created by a crack that is worn down by wind and water erosion over thousands of years.

The term canyoneering was coined as a means to explore these incredible canyons. Utah and the East Zion area is one of the best locations in the entire world to experience this unique geological formation. 

Most slot canyons in the area are difficult to find, are only accessible from private property, require rappelling, or can be dangerous to explore because of flood risk and canyon obstruction. These area all good reasons to consider hiring a guide to explore. 

Experiencing a slot canyon for the first time has been said to be life changing, come canyoneer with us in the East Zion area!
