The Maze bike and stargazing trip is an active astronomer’s dream. This human-powered adventure will take you into one of the least-visited areas of Canyonlands National Park. Here, daytime and nighttime are equally spectacular. Officially designated as an International Dark Sky Park in 2015, Canyonlands is one of the best places in the West to enjoy the night sky. Biking through the Maze means sweeping, dramatic red rock scenery by day and an incomparable star-scape at night. The skies out here are, quite simply, enormous.
With our expert guide staff and a 4×4 support van to take care of all the logistics, you’re free to simply push your pedals and enjoy the views. The Maze bike trip is an excellent choice for those who want a vacation but don’t like sitting still. We’ll ride mostly intermediate terrain, along a dirt double-track road with a few challenging climbs and several sweet downhills. Challenge yourself just enough to enjoy our gourmet meals and a supreme sense of accomplishment. And if all that isn’t enough, this year, for the first time, we are partnering with Salt Lake City’s Clark Planetarium and our own astro-whiz, Tom Beckett, to guide you through the wonder and awe of the night sky. This Maze bike and stargazing trip is an exclusive, one-time-only offering, and group sizes are limited. Be sure to secure your spot today.
“Bloody brilliant! I came all the way from London, England for this trip and boy, was it worth it. This was the best cycling, food, and scenery in the world. I met some great friends too.” (Jim Ripley)
