Experienced Canyoneering Guides
Experience some of the best canyoneering in Utah in Hogwarts Canyon & Morocco Canyon!
Searching for the ultimate canyoneering experience in Utah? Look no further! Our Hogwarts Canyon and Morocco Canyon tour is one of the best canyoneering experiences in the beehive state!
This is one of our most epic tours for a few reasons, such as the long and adrenaline-pumping rappels canyoneers dream of. We’ll be scaling down from 10 feet to a whopping 100 feet through several natural bridges (that can only be seen by the brave souls who use ropes and rigging!).
Don’t worry if you’re not a pro – we’ve got you covered with short down climbs and stems that will keep you on your toes. And if you work up a sweat, there’s a possibility we’ll have the chance to cool off with some refreshing swims in the second canyon.
If you’re scared of heights, you might want to sit this one out as we’ll be trekking through some canyons with edge-of-your-seat drops that are sure to get your heart racing.
After a rest break, we’ll be hitting the second canyon for more rappelling and scrambling through various drops and obstacles. And don’t worry, we’ll be taking a leisurely stroll back to the car once we’re done.
This two-canyon combo is perfect for a day of adventure for those looking for the best canyoneering in Utah!

The Hogwarts canyon canyoneering adventure starts with a hike, much higher than Morocco Canyon, of about 2,000 feet of vertical gain. Once we reach the top, we’ll drop down into the canyon with a little bit of downclimbing to come to our first rappel down into a chamber and walk over to the next rappel of about 90 feet through an arch. A beautiful and otherworldly experience! We’ll rappel about 40 feet over a pothole, a large natural hole, and then squeeze down a narrow shoot, squeezing and going sideways to make our way through! We’ll end our canyoneering trip in Hogwarts canyon with two final rappels of 60 feet and then 100 feet before returning to the car. Combining Morocco canyon and Hogwarts canyon is an excellent and intense full-day canyoning adventure – with tons of opportunities to improve your rappelling skills!
The Morocco canyon canyoneering trip starts with a scramble up the cliff base of a vertical ascent of about 1,000 feet! Once we get to the top, we will walk around to the top of the canyon, where we’ll have our first rappel of about 55 feet into the canyon. From there, we’ll have a downclimb down a natural arch in the canyon, followed by a narrow shoot rappel, then rappel out about 70 feet into a slightly wider canyon, scrambling to our next rappel of about 30 feet. We’ll then hike to the next few down climbs and drops – with a couple of pools of water to wade through (in a typical season)! A couple of short rappels later, we’ll arrive at a tighter section of the canyon where we’ll go in feet first between a boulder and the canyon wall – birth canal style! Here you’ll swim across and then walk out to the last rappel of about 30 feet before ending up on the highway, ending the Morocco canyon part of this tour.
Good To Know
Although there’s no way we can predict the weather, you may get wet in the canyon. But, no sandals or open-toed shoes will be allowed for safety protocols. Your footwear should be of the utmost quality to comfortably hike all day.
All clothing worn may get damaged in the canyon, and shorts and jeans are discouraged.
You don’t have to be in top physical form, but you must be in good enough shape to hike all day in rough, uneven, and challenging terrain.
Due to the possibility of inclement weather and flash floods, trips may be canceled for these reasons, amongst others. Please see our cancellation policy page for more information on this.
This tour has the longest and highest amount of rappels, so you will have lots of hang time in a harness on rappels ranging from 10 to 100 feet.
A guided canyoneering trip consists of the group hiking, climbing, scrambling, down climbing and stemming and rappelling through narrow slot canyons.
When we meet up at our designated meeting locations, we will have a safety briefing and instructions for the trip. We’ll gear up and then depart for the canyon(s). During the trip we will be hiking over slick rock, in sand, through water, and between the walls of the canyons. We will be in and out of the sun and shade. There will be several steep inclines to hike up, and several steep descents into the canyon(s),. We will spend the day in the canyon and have frequent snack and water breaks in the canyon, or a couple of the trips have breaks in between two separate canyons where we will be back at the vehicle. Once finished we will hike out, inventory gear and depart to your various other destinations.
No you don’t need to be in peak physical condition. You do need to be able to hike for several hours on different types of terrain and different angles of terrain while carrying a pack with your personal gear and some group gear including ropes, harness, helmet, water, wetsuits, and any clothing you wish to bring along.
Aside from knowing what to expect, previous experience is not generally necessary. We offer trips for various skill levels. During our Canyoneering Trips we offer enough instruction to get you through the canyon at key critical points.
Rappelling know-how is not required and guides are more than willing to help instruct on the basics to get you down the canyon. Due to the heights of some of the drops, those with an extreme fear of heights should take into consideration whether or not they believe they would be able to finish once started on a hike that requires rappelling. Once started into some of the canyons the only way out is to rappel out. We can not turn around halfway through and climb out. Rappelling will have to be accomplished. Some people find the rappel either the most exciting part, or the scariest part.

A really awesome canyoneering course! North Wash Outfitters came recommended to me by some friends and I’m so glad I did it. I feel so much more comfortable with the skills and techniques I learned, the instructors are super knowledgeable and experienced. Great class, great experience, great people. I look forward to taking an advanced class when I’m ready
Jared is super knowledgeable and taught us a lot. I would definitely recommend and will do the advanced course through them as well. Also having multiple instructors was a big help they all had different things to teach us.
I have taken both the beginner and advanced class from Jared and his crew. Their knowledge and teaching methods are superior. They not only teach the techniques in a way that anyone can learn, but they are also patient and make sure you understand. Going through the trainings and the canyons with them you can tell that safety is definitely a value.
Jared is the man you want to learn canyoneering from. Without a doubt, you will not find a better instructor than him. His guides are also incredible at what they do and extremely knowledgeable. The progression of the course is absolutely perfect, going from learning the basics, to practicing what you’ve learned, to real life scenarios in the canyon.
