Top-Rated Utah Tours

Small Group Experience

Small group travel (12 people or less) is a great option for hiking because it allows for a more personalized and immersive experience. With a small group, you can visit off-the-beaten-path destinations and have more flexibility in your itinerary. Additionally, you may form stronger bonds with your fellow hikers, and it can be more cost-effective compared to individual travel. Click here to learn more reasons why to travel with them.

FAMILY OWNED

MountainBased was founded in 2016 by brothers James, Justin, and Jared Ebert, along with their cousin Nick St. John. Their family has a history of adventure travel spanning three generations. Their goal is to provide exceptional hiking adventures that honor the same outdoor philosophies as our grandparents’ organization, the Iowa Mountaineers (1940-1996). For us, adventure travel is more than their passion, it’s their purpose.

PRIVATE TOUR?

All available MountainBased tours can be booked for a private group. Bring the whole family, round up your friends for an ultimate road trip, or explore new trails with your hiking group. Whether you decide on camping or lodging, private tours will operate according to our listed trip itineraries and will stay at the same accommodations unless alternate requests are made in advance. Private trips require a minimum purchase of 8 guests and can accommodate up to 12. Click here to learn more.
