Dads and Kiddos Adventure in the Grand Canyon, AZ

Building bonds behind the wheel with Wilderness Collective

This four day, off-road adventure to the Grand Canyon is designed for fathers and their kids to have the adventure of a lifetime. Our chef will be cooking amazing food for the adults and a special menu for the kids. The mileage, food and experiences along the way are all designed with kids in mind. We have kids too, so we get it.

Our Outfitter

The Wilderness Collective guides people through trip-of-a-lifetime adventure experiences, produces films and a printed magazine, all with the intention of inspiring character development through exploration.

Their motto is Wilderness makes you better.

All Wilderness trips have been device-free since the collective started. This means they’ll lock your phone in a safe. And don’t bring a camera either. This is intentional to ensure that you get to experience a unique distraction-free adventure, something that is always a highlight for their guests. They will take all the photos so you can just enjoy the experience.
