Here's a Typical 3-Day Fitness Adventure: Day One - We'll paddle upstream 8 miles in the Black Canyon, run 6 miles through twisting, turning desert slot canyons,  relax for awhile in a hot spring , and then paddle 8 miles downstream.

Day Two - We'll go mtbiking, exploring the desert, and cycling on jeep roads that have rarely seen a mountain bike. That night starting about 7 pm, we'll paddle 4 to 8 miles on Temple Bay, find a good beach, set up a camp, and get some rest.

Day Three - In the morning after some camp coffee, we'll work on advanced kayak skills, have some breakfast, and then paddle back practicing our new skills - finishing 3 great days of adventure and fitness training.   

A Typical 2-Day Fitness Adventure:

Day One - We'll trek and or run up one canyon and descend, with rappelling, down another. This a good adventure all by itself. We if have time, we'll do a few hours of paddling,

Day Two - We'll paddle 5 miles, we'll hike up a mountain giving us a 1500' elevation gain over Lake Mead, we'll run down and back to the boats, and we'll paddle back, finishing two days of a great outdoor fitness experience. 

This day is a great day if you only have one day for our  Fitness Vacation
