This is Our Story
Founded in 2004, Desert Adventures is deeply intertwined with the mesmerizing currents of the Colorado River. Our journey has expanded to encompass kayaking, mountain biking, and hiking, all while emphasizing continuous learning through our immersive field courses. We're driven by a singular mission: delivering a truly authentic and unforgettable experience.
As a close-knit community of passionate explorers, we're united by the river that shapes our lifestyle. Our ethos is built on stewardship, enlightenment, mutual respect, and sheer joy.
We cherish the bonds we form, both with fellow adventurers and with nature itself. Embracing diversity and creativity, we dream ambitiously, act responsibly, and pursue our passion with unwavering love and dedication.
Our mission transcends the conventional. At Desert Adventures, we're devoted to crafting kayak tours and other adventures that are more than just experiences—they're memories, lessons, and stories waiting to be shared. The essence of our tours lies in the intimacy: smaller groups, undivided attention, and personal touches that make each adventure truly unique.
This is our real job.
