Are you a flexible traveler? Do you love hiking no matter what the conditions are? Would you rather sacrifice an evening yoga session for a sunset on top of a mountain if the situation called for it? Do you like getting to know people but also love exploring at your own pace?
Then this adventure retreat is for you.
This is the ultimate adventure retreat for the passionate about hiking yogi. We'll be staying in a gorgeous house in the town of Springdale located on the West side of the park where you can wake up and be first on the trails. We are less than .5 miles from Zion National Park main entrance and 500 feet from the nearest Free Shuttle stop! It is 5 minutes by foot to seven different restaurants, a grocery store, gift shops, and more.
We will be spending two days in the park on this trip with an optional Canyoneering day. Bryce National Park is approximately a 2 hour drive away for those who want to explore a second national park although, due to the time a year there's always a possibility Bryce is limited for hiking and driving due to snow conditions.
After a long day of exploring come back to base camp and cook a hot meal in the gourmet kitchen or hang out on the back porch under the stars. Daily yoga will compliment the activities and allow us to connect as a group before and after embarking on our adventures.
From my previous trip to Zion I can say the number one requirement for those attending is flexibility. Many of the hikes in the park (Narrows, Angel's Landing) are weather dependent and while I try and build a schedule our plans may change day to day based on weather. A rental car is strongly recommended so you can explore at your leisure. The closest airport to fly into is St. George or it's about a 10 hour drive from Denver.
Those attending the retreat should have a moderate fitness level as the majority of the hikes in the park are strenuous.
The closest airports to Zion Canyon are Saint George Municipal Airport (SGU) serviced by Skywest, Delta, and United (SGU), 1 hour south, and McCarran International Airport (LAS), 2.5 hours south.
Saint George Shuttle runs daily from Las Vegas to Saint George, UT, and Red Rock Shuttle (435-635-9104). Saint George Express offers daily transport from Las Vegas to Zion Canyon with one change over. We have found it best to call them directly for that reservation.
Rental cars are available at either airport. April through October, the free Zion Canyon Shuttle, operating in Zion Canyon and Springdale, is excellent for basic transportation through town or into Zion Canyon for many of the park's famous hikes.
It is strongly advised you rent a car for this retreat. You will likely not drive it once you arrive at the property unless we caravan for a group hike on the East side of the park, however the shuttle times do not always coordinate with flight times so a rental car gives you the most freedom of travel to and from the airport.
Sol Foods is 200 yards and less than 3 minutes walk up Juniper Lane. They have a full-service grocery store with a deli, produce section, bakery, and more. "Down the hill" in LaVerkin large grocers include Dave's Market (21 miles), and further yet, Lin's Market (25 miles), Wal-Mart (28 miles), and Costco (35 miles). Those driving in can pick up groceries along the way and re-supply at Sol Foods very conveniently.
