Goblin Valley State Park Canyoneering Adventure
Take a rappelling and adventure tour through Goblin Valley State Park. Don't worry, this is a beginners course, so it will be fun. Explore the canyons, admiring all the red rock, and what nature has done to the surface all through the years. It's a fun adventure for all ages.
This is a great four hour tour and lesson in rappelling. If you have always wanted to rappel but not to sure about it, this is the way to try it and experience the beauty of nature with it. First thing first, get safety and rappelling instructions, then journey into the 'Valley of the Goblins'. It is called so, because of thousands of the 'hoodoos', which are sandstone formations partially eroded, giving the impressions of 'goblins'.
After the valley, guests come across a dark 'chasm' in the earth. It is here that guest will see what looks like a cathedral. This area is called,Chamber of the Basilisk, and The Goblins Lair. This where you put on the canyoneering gear, and rappel down them. You will feel like God is shining down on you, as you explore around the canyon. This is great for families that want to do some new exciting adventures together. The kids will talk about it for years. They may even become adventure hikers and rappelling experts.
The tour includes an expert guide, instructions, equipment, and snacks. Guests must be aged 10 and up, and weigh between 70 and 250 pounds, and sign a waiver. The tours are offered everyday, starting at 9:00AM. The costs are for ages 10 and up at $149.00. Add this to your bucket list and have fun!
Your adventure begins with a warm welcome from your guide who will provide an overview of the area's fascinating history, safety information and an introduction to basic rappelling and canyoneering.
Following a short and fun scramble through the Valley of the Goblins, we enter a beautiful slot canyon that disappears into a dark and mysterious chasm in the Earth. It is here that we put on our canyoneering gear and rappel into this spectacular and awe-inspiring chamber that resembles a gothic cathedral.
The Goblins Lair and Chamber of the Basilisk is truly an unforgettable canyoneering adventure and like most of our trips is suitable for the entire family.
