Utah: private camp adventure

Exclusive insight into this adventurer’s playground

Having pioneered the most ambitious luxury camp experiences throughout Utah, we know best how to create exclusive escapes amongst this state’s geographic drama.

Think front-row views of this year’s solar eclipse from a 3D-printed observatory, heli lunches atop Tower Butte itself and bespoke tented setups among Hunts Mesa’s otherworldly topography.

And, after getting your adrenaline fix heli-canyoneering, rafting on the Colorado River and with jet-ski races on Lake Powell, we’ll create a boutique bolthole just for you. In among stays in world-leading lodges, enjoy nights under the stars with luxury tents and theatrically lit parties.

A region iconic for its red-rock formations and deep, plunging canyons, America’s desert state is the perfect canvas for a bespoke, off-the-grid adventure. And, this year, Utah’s carved-out rocks and sun-soaked gorges are the perfect backdrop to the ‘ring of fire’ solar eclipse. It’s an experience we’ll elevate in true Cookson fashion, perhaps toasting it with sommelier-selected vintages or in the company of top astronomers.

In Utah, the Mars-like landscapes are best explored by air. Bringing in a helicopter means special access to remote pockets that few have the chance to see. That could be discovering stratified slot canyons far away from the crowds of the Narrows or scaling the mile-high monolith of Tower Butte to enjoy a unique lunch, surrounded by nothing but sweeping desert views.

Of course, high-octane activities also really shine here. Take on narrow canyons by bike, sweep out across desert dunes on ATVs and scale epic via ferrata climbs set some 400 foot in the air. Then, try out a full spread of watersports on the sprawling oasis of man-made Lake Powell.

While off-grid, there’s no need to compromise on indulgence. We’ll elevate your experience with your very own tented camp that’s created just for you, from personalised private-chef dining to dedicated wellness facilities. It’s all set to exclusive views of Monument Valley’s monoliths or water-side vistas around Lake Powell. And, you’ve the option of combining it with a world-class desert lodge, complete with the likes of private-pool pavilions.
