Zion’s nooks and crannies are best experienced through rock climbing and canyoning. Its 124,000 acres of wilderness are interspersed with countless sandstone cliffs soaring into brilliant blue sky and slot canyons snaking beneath the surface. The best thing is, you can experience both in one day! Combine these two exciting activities on an action-packed adventure full of 100 ft (30m) rappels and rewarding single-pitch routes. It’s a mix of scrambling over obstacles, plunging into refreshing canyons and reaching sweeping views of Zion’s peaks. Newcomers can have a crack at the sports, while seasoned climbers and canyoneers get a chance to develop their skills—all with the supervision of the expert guide.

Booked this trip during a visit to Zion, and was definitely one of the highlights of the trip. What an amazing experience! Our guide was very patient and engaging throughout the half day trip. I would highly recommend if you want to add a little adventure to your vacation. You repel several times into places you probably would not venture to on your own. Very unique experience and a ton of fun!
We did a full day combo trip, and loved every second. Our guide, Maddy, was super helpful and knowledgeable. She catered to our skill level and pushed us to learn more skills during our day.
Cannot recommend this company and a to org strongly enough
Great trip. We did a combo rock climbing and canyoneering day for a family of five with three kids aged 12, 10 and 5. Rock Odysseys was very professional, the trip was well organised and our guide, Zack, was great and really made it a special day for the kids. Excellent all round.
My wife and I booked a combo climb/rappelling trip with Maddie and could not have been happier with the experience. She explained everything to us in detail, was patient and very funny. HIGHLY recommend.
We had such a fun day, on a private climbing/rappelling combo trip! Our guide Dion was an excellent host, showing us so many fun routes. We felt very safe and encouraged the whole time! Wish we could have spent the whole trip here!!
Stephen was an excellent guide… very kind, calm and knowledgeable. Loved to climbing and repelling!!

To get to Zion National Park, most people fly into Las Vegas McCarran International Airport 2.5 hours away from the park. From there, you can rent a car and take a shuttle service to Springdale, Rockville, Virgin, La Verkin, or Hurricane in Utah. Due to National Park restrictions, all climbing and canyoneering trips are located just outside of Zion National Park.
Once you and your guide agree on the details of your itinerary, they will suggest the best place to meet. Your guide can also pick you up at your accommodation in any of the towns listed in the first paragraph. Alternatively, you can simply meet your guide at a designated recreational site, most often it’s Lambs Knoll.
