Take a digital detox with your team and a deep dive into nature by canoeing the amazing Black Canyon section of the Colorado River. Conveniently located just outside Las Vegas, but worlds away, is where we start the adventure.

View Map

We launch at the base of Hoover Dam – an amazing site - and canoe the lovely, lazy current downriver amongst some of the most dramatic rock outcroppings in the world. 

Along the way we work as a team to hike slot canyons, ravines and caves. There’s usually a natural mineral hot spring soak waiting for us at the end.

Your camp is elegantly rendered in a sandy canyon, with all your needs tended to by La Vida Laguna staff. Enjoy healthy, gourmet meals and snacks, yoga and mindfulness practices, wilderness challenges and skill building, spear fishing, cliff jumping, campfires, music, drumming, and lots of soaking in the warm, medicinal, mineral rich waters. We can add massage, sweat lodge, sound baths, fire dancers, and other mystical madness by request.
