Lodge-based archeology exploration in the Utah desert!
Trip Full | Wait List only
This trip is an exciting addition to our adult seminar series. We will spend our days trekking into the desert to hidden archeological wonders and our evenings relaxing in the historic town of Bluff, Utah. This all-inclusive seminar provides transportation to and from sites, hotel fees, home cooked meals, and professional archeologist experts to lead us to sites and provide interpretation.
A guided educational getaway
The seminar begins with a private, behind the scenes tour of the Edge of the Cedars Museum. From there, each day brings a new adventure. Expert archeologists will guide the group to lesser-known archeology sites providing information about Ancient American tools, architecture, and lifestyles. You will also have plenty of free time to explore historic downtown Bluff, relax at the Lodge, or wander down to the San Juan River.
Focus on the Moment – Explore the past
You are here to experience the ancient past! Come ready to immerse yourself within the breathtaking scenery, and let us worry about the details.

"The entire experience was mind, heart and soul opening. It was a terrific group of people and group cohesion isn't always easy but I felt we really gelled as a group. I learned so much and, looking so far back into humanity, I felt a little less anxious about our fate as humans – not that I won’t continue on with all my own engagements to make the world a better, safer and life sustaining place! Thank you again, you do great work.”
