Overland 4x4 Tour

A small percentage of visitors ever see Zion Canyon from the perspective this tour provides – deep gorges with rock walls a few feet from our hands, dramatic cross-bedded formations, and a summit mesa with 270° views of Zion Canyon. We spend 80% of our drive on historic backcountry Jeep roads, visiting the Grafton ghost town, surrounding drainages and mesas, and geologic wonders. The experience involves approximately a 2.5 hour round-trip from our store in Springdale.

Experience at a Glance: 
  • Meet your tour guide at Zion Adventure Company
  • Climb aboard our 1974 Mercedes Unimog for the 2.5-3 hour tour
  • Obtain a headset and microphone such that you can hear interpretive information about history, culture, plants, animals and geology
  • The tour is 80% off road on bumpy, rocky, somewhat dusty roads
  • Visit historic Grafton Ghost Town where pioneers once lived and subsequent Western movies have been filmed.
  • See views of Zion from the tops of nearby Mesas.
