Desolation Canyon Stargazing Trip


$1,395.00 / person

Trip Overview

Holiday’s stargazing and history trip through Desolation Canyon will take you into a landscape named by John Wesley Powell, who called it “a region of wildest desolation.” Utah’s Green River cuts through the Tavaputs Plateau, one of the remotest regions of the continental United States.

Spend your days exploring outlaw hideouts and ancient indigenous cultural sites. We’ll splash through consistent, fun whitewater (this is a great trip for playing in inflatable kayaks). Get curious about who came before you in this ancient canyon full of the ghosts and ancestors with tales to tell through the depth of knowledge of our resident river historian. In the evenings our minds will expand along with the universe as it becomes visible around us. Using both binoculars and the naked eye, our resident star experts will guide you through the Milky Way. Hunt for the Andromeda Galaxy, watch for satellites and meteors, and drift off to sleep while listening to stories about the constellations.
