Please join us for our amazing Women's Art & Yoga Canoe Trip with Splore June 1-4, 2017


Ladies*, if you enjoy art, yoga, canoeing and spending time outdoors in the company of other awesome women, this trip is the best thing you'll do for yourself this year. Art Access and Splore are partnering together again for another amazing women's only adventure.

Labyrinth Canyon:
Gliding out onto the longest smooth water portion of the Green River, participants will paddle canoes through an open valley and begin a descent through shales and marls of light blue and slate colors, topped with rocks of buff and gray, as they head into the heart of Labyrinth Canyon. The surface of this desert landscape tilts toward the north, so the canyon becomes deeper day by day giving participants the feeling of solitude and connection with nature.

By day 2, participants will wake to the sunrise over massive sandstone walls while enjoying their daily morning yoga workout led by Elise Butterfield. Each day will conclude with creative adventures designed by our trip's resident art therapist, Jill Johnson. The all-female guide crew will help keep participants strong and focused throughout the trip by preparing tasty, nutritious meals and setting up the camp for all to enjoy.

*this trip is inclusive of all individuals who identify as women
