With elevations ranging from 11,000 feet above to 300 feet below sea level and over 3,000,000 acres of wilderness, Death Valley is a geological wonder to explore. Canyons, waterfalls, abandoned mines, swimming holes – Death Valley gives you the beauty of the desert and mountains, complete with numerous desert oases.
Go explore slot canyons, massive sand dunes, volcanic craters, mountaintops, and the"Devil's Golf Course," the lowest place in North America at 300 feet below sea level! Go from snow to very low in just one day! With the archeology, geology and geography of the Valley to capture your imagination and curiosity, the science possibilities are also bountiful.
There is endless beauty to explore in this area. We have lead overnight backpacking trips up slot canyons to day hikes into beautiful secluded areas. Explore the salt flats, scotty's castle, abandoned mines, tall peaks and tons more.
Spend a day in Red Rocks National Conservation Area. We will work a local guide service and get a chance to rock climb in Nevada's Mojave Desert. Red Rocks is known for its large sandstone peaks as well as its Native American petroglyphs.
Help to make sure that Death Valley National Park stays a place that others will be able to visit for many years to come. We can set-up a half or full day of volunteering to give back to the park. The project will depend on the parks needs at that time but might range from litter clean-up to the removal of non-native species to wilderness restoration.
Go Adventure itineraries are built around flexibility to ensure we can interact with the ever-changing conditions in the wilderness which are magnified even more in this extreme desert setting. It sounds pretty hardcore, but actually this trip is well suited for newcomers to the outdoors as Death Valley has plenty of great places to explore up high and down low, allowing you to beat the heat or the cold, as needed!
