Our family canyoneering trip exceeded my expectations and was our favorite day in Zion. Nathan was an excellent guide, allowing even our 5 yr to be challenged (safely) with a 100 ft solo rappel. We explored the red caves on the East side of Zion...More

7 year old, for sure. I don't have kids so I can't tell about the younger ones. Our guide told us that he's taken kids as young as 3 and adults as old as 80 - so call and ask them. Have fun!
