Far Out Expeditions


This Utah-based company's custom hiking and backpacking trips in the Four Corners region are almost all led by owner Vaughn Hadenfeldt, who has spent 20-plus years guiding and exploring archaeological sites of the Southwest. Base yourself at Far Out's rustic guesthouse in Bluff, Utah (on the edge of the Navajo Reservation) for day hikes, or venture deeper into the backcountry, exploring canyons, searching out ancient Anasazi rock art, and sleeping out under the stars.
