Choose From a Variety of Paragon Adventures Programs

Most Popular

The top activity available through Paragon Adventures is The Quest canyoneering program. Every program is ranked with a fitness level from 1 to 5, so guests can assess their aptitude and ability for each. The Quest is ranked at a fitness level of 1, making it an excellent activity for families. It’s also suitable for large groups and easily customizable based on participants’ skills and experience. During this 3-5 hour tour, you’ll experience hiking, rocking climbing, and zip lining through a desert canyon.

Another one of the most popular outings is the Mojave Canyon Zip Line Tour. Also ranked for fitness level 1, this activity allows you to sail over a 600’ canyon on a 2400’ long zip line! Get an unparalleled view of the Mojave Desert as you glide through the air on this 2-3 hour tour.

The third most popular activity is the half day canyoneering intro, designed specifically for first time canyoneers. Though this is also a fitness level 1, it involves technical instruction and obstacles better suited for adults. Learn the basics of rappelling and how to navigate through a canyon system with obstructions like water pools and boulders.

For Adventure Seekers

If you consider yourself a very active person with experience in outdoor adventuring, you should try one of Paragon Adventures more complex tours. Step outside your comfort zone and sign up for a wild caving program! For those who have never hiked underground, choose the Cave Sample tour. This adventure takes you 200 feet below the surface with a combination of downward hiking and rappelling. An optional route allows you to squeeze through tunnels to get to the awe-inspiring Great Room.

Though the Cave Traverse program is also ideal for first timers, you will encounter more challenges along this route. Wander by huge gypsum crystals, pass through small, tight passages, and crawl under obstacles to reach your final destination. Then, rappel 170 feet into the dark to explore more rooms and secret passages.
