Getting Started

Getting Started with Splore

Mission

Our mission is to change lives by challenging and expanding one’s notion of ability through meaningful outdoor adventure. In order to get the most out of life, one must have the confidence to try new things, and have a sense of the possibilities life holds for them. We do this by empowering and instilling greater confidence in our participants through canoeing, rock climbing, skiing, snowshoeing, and rafting adventures.  Splore trips leave participants with an expanded sense of what they can accomplish both individually and as a family.

Experience

Since the first river trip in 1977, Splore has been one of the pioneers in inclusive outdoor adventure. Many of our participants and groups have been rafting with us since the 1980s and 1990s. Our Program Managers have over 25 years of combined experience managing adventure programs for people of all ability levels. Furthermore, in 2014, Splore gained accreditation as an Adventure Program through the Association of Experiential Education. This accreditation recognizes the best practices that Splore follows in regards to guide training, risk management, and program development.

Locations

Splore trips take place in the greater Salt Lake City area as well as in the Moab and Canyonlands area. We are fortunate to have permits in the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forests as well as on BLM-managed waterways in southern Utah. We also offer rock climbing trips at the City of Rocks National Reserve in southern Idaho.  While most of our trips are in the great outdoors, our indoor climbing programs take place at Momentum Climbing Gyms’ Sandy and Millcreek locations.

Group Sizes

Splore groups range from 1 to 30 participants.  While we will consider groups larger than 30, we prefer smaller group sizes in order to preserve the wilderness experience of our trips.
