Rocky Mountain Outfitters' cowboy guides lead riders along the high slopes of Soldier Hollow Valley, overlooking the Wasatch Range and Deer Creek Reservoir. Excursions begin as guides assess their tour group's riding abilities and teach participants how to climb into the saddle with the confidence of a chimpanzee climbing into a banana truck. Riders navigate winding canyons and snow-speckled trails astride mountain-bred horses, all while enjoying the scenery and searching for local wildlife.
Provo Canyon Adventures
Mountains echo with the clicking of hooves on rocks as mountain vegetation waves in the breeze and the sun glistens on snow-dappled trails. Schools of fish scatter as a pair of slick rubber boots parts the waters—a fisher wading through thick river sediment before casting a line into the current. Provo Canyon Adventures' experienced outdoorsmen usher customers through all manner of seasonal adventures, including fly-fishing, ziplining, horseback riding, rafting, and off-road tours through the mountains.
Visitors may encounter roving wildlife such as snow rabbits, moose, and fawns frolicking through varied landscapes for memorable photo ops or police sketch-artist renderings. Adventure packages combine more than one outdoor activity to keep you having fun all day long. Add a Riverside BBQ Dinner to your adventure and watch the sun go down behind beautiful Mount Timpanogos.
