How to Choose

With Rubicon Outdoors, you can decide the way you like to travel.  But how to choose? We have a large selection of pre-designed self-guided and guided itineraries to choose from. If those don’t quite fit, we can design a custom tour for you and your friends. If you’d like to join a guided tour, we offer a full schedule of small group guided tours with all departures 100% guaranteed to run. And if you’d like a private guided tour, we can arrange one of our existing itineraries or customize a guided tour for you as well. The choice is yours!



Self Guided Tours

There are many reasons to take self-guided tours to the Southwest. Perhaps you don’t want to be part of a group, maybe you have your own family or group already put together.  Or, maybe you just prefer to explore on your own. Many people have restrictive travel dates that don’t match up with our guided tours, and a self-guided tour becomes the best option for your schedule. Plus, self-guided tours are more flexible (in the planning stages) and affordable than guided tours, generally running about 2/3 the cost of a comparable guided tour. We’ve designed self-guided tours as short as 2 days or as long as 3 weeks, and take pride in finding just the right itinerary for your needs. We can arrange quiet, intimate tours for two or larger getaways for groups of friends, work colleagues, or family reunions.  The choice is yours! Read more about Self Guided Tours here.

Private Guided Tours

We offer a small selection of carefully crafted, private guided tours. Pre-paid hotels, meals, and transportation to and from trailheads are all included in the tours. Our private guided tour pricing assumes 1 guide for your group, and this can be customized if you have a larger group or need additional guides.  More about private guided tours here.

Still not finding quite what you’re looking for?  We also offer to customize any of our Self Guided or Private Guided tour offerings to meet your specific dates and needs.


Contact Us

If you have any questions about a tour or destination, please feel to call or email anytime. We’re always happy to talk about the tours and your particular needs, and are normally in the office Mon-Fri from 9:00 – 4:30. If we don’t pick up, it just means we’re busy or away for a moment, so please leave a message and we’ll call you right back. We are located in the mountains of Northern Arizona, which is on Pacific time from early Nov to mid-March and Mountain time otherwise.
