Canyoneering in Arizona is unlike any other location - mostly due to our amazing geography. Arizona's wet canyons are spectacular. On this adventure you'll find yourself hiking, scrambling, boulder hopping, rappelling, wading and swimming through some of Arizona's amazing slot canyons. Join us on a trip through smooth granite cracks, pine forest pools, or hidden desert passages.
Our wet Arizona canyoning tours take place in either Salome, better known as The Jug, or Christopher Creek. Both are very different from each other - The Jug is a sculpted pink-granite canyon, while Christopher Creek is a high-elevation canyon that requires wetsuits even in the depth of summer. Either way, your guided Arizona canyoneering adventure will become the thing you talk about most about your vacation.
