About Mountains and Canyons

Mission Statement

We want to provide the highest quality of completely customized trips, maintaining safety as our number one priority.

When booking a trip with Mountains and Canyons, you are planning a trip with our Lead Guide and Owner Brian Muller.  You are booking with the person who will take you step by step through the customization process and talk you through the options. He will be available along the way  if plans change, and then will guide your group on the adventure.  

Vision Statement

In the near future we plan to offer time based trips.  What this means is you book the time and activity you would like to take place, and then as the date gets closer we hone in on the location and/or objectives.  This is a new concept in the guiding industry and not for everyone, but for those looking for the highest level trip with the best conditions, this is the highest level of customization.  

We operate with multiple companies to utilize permits that Brian has been affiliated with, many for the past 10 years.

If you need something, emails or phone calls will be directly with him.

Need to prepare for your trip in a different way?  I will easily set up a zoom meeting to talk it over face to face.
