if you want to experience one of the world's wonderlands, the carved sandstone canyons of Southern Utah. Grant and Sue run an amazing operation. On Day 1, their horses take your gear (and homegrown supplies) to a base camp on the Escalante, while you hike in. Each day after that you get a fantastic breakfast, pack a lunch, and hit... More

Escalante Canyon Outfitters offers a unique and unforgettable way to experience the natural beauty of Southern Utah's high red rock desert. Grant's knowledge of the geography, history, flora and fauna is unsurpassed. Sue's planning was impeccable. The guides were great. The food superb! The hiking spectacular! This was a thoroughly enjoyable trip that I want to repeat and I highly... More

I titled this review "best trip ever" and that is saying a lot. I have been to some incredible places all over the world, but I think this is the one I liked the best. It's probably not for everyone - you have to like to hike and to be a little dirty. But there's no better way to see... More

We had an outstanding experience with ECO. It's a first-class operation. We went on a Narrows trip in May as a birthday present to ourselves. We are experienced travelers and are both fit, so we knew that we could plan our own trip if we wanted. However, we are also busy people and knew that we would have a really... More

I have been on two trips with ECO--one in October, 2010 (Canyons of the Little Rockies) and a second in May, 2011 (Kayenta Passages). I am eager to go on more--especially Waterpocket Fold. They use horses to bring in gear so you only have to carry a daypack. They lead the hikes, prepare all the meals, and share their knowledge... More

I have been on two trips with ECO and I can highly recommend this group to anyone seeking solitude and a true backcountry experience with all the comforts and safety of a guided tour. The areas visited are remote and truly beautiful. The guides have utmost respect for safety and take special care with any guests who need extra help... More

It is a great way to see escalente, you are looked after well, tents are great, food VERY VERY good, and you need only carry a day pack. I cannot imagine attempting this yourself unless you know the area, and even then the guides can show you special trails few would know. Besides not many people can cook as well... More

I've taken two trips with these folks (2007and 2008), and each time I've been thoroughly pleased with their professionalism, organization and knowledge. I'll book a trip again with them in 2009. On both trips there were three very friendly and helpful staff for six participants. They made sure all of us received helpful attention appropriate to our respective skill and... More

Escalante Canyon Outfitters (ECO) provides access to breathtakingly beautiful remote back country sites that would normally be out of the reach of most people. Their horse-supported campsites allow you to have all the little extras that make camping more comfortable, and you don't have to carry a heavy pack. Meals were excellent and there was always plenty of food to... More

I bid on and won a trip with them without knowing much about it. They were so helpful and fun and organized. Very well run operation. We camped near a lovely swimming hole in the river for 4 days. So nice not to carry a lot of heavy gear as they pack everything in. The food was amazing!! The warmth... More
