Southeast Utah, and specifically the Bears Ears region, is one of the last wild frontiers and at the forefront of issues surrounding public lands. Four Corners Adventures was established in 2010 partnering with Wild Rivers Expeditions in 2013 together specializing in wilderness experiences by land and river. In 2018 we are excited to announce the single brand WILD. Between growing populations around the world and innovative technology it is becoming impossible to disconnect and feel the solitude only found in the wild places of the world. With this in mind, we feel it is ever more important our public lands are protected for the enjoyment of future generations.

Our mission is to enjoy, educate, preserve and protect natural resources both physical and human. Specializing in wilderness journeys on the San Juan river and through out Bears Ears National Monument, we invite you to join us for your next get away. Custom tailored WILD excursions await those who make the effort to disconnect from the world and travel back to a time forgotten in Bluff, Utah. 5% of all tour sales will be put towards preservation and helping local Native American youth experience the outdoors through programs aimed at improving leadership and challenging self-confidence building wilderness experiences. Current preservation projects and programs will be shared through our blog page.

The current closure of SR-95 extends approximately 28 miles from the junction of U.S. Highway 191 to SR-261. UDOT crews have deployed portable electronic message boards from several maintenance stations in southern Utah to key highway junctions to help inform motorists of the closure.
