Artists, philosophers, and people from all walks of life have sought refuge, clarity, change, or perhaps simply broader horizons here in the Joshua Tree region. Together, we’ll traverse the legendary landscape that’s supported creative endeavors both contemporary and historical—visiting colorful man-made mountains, glimpsing mysteriously marked rocks, and experiencing the magic of the desert along the way.
The cost of this trip is $860, based on double occupancy.
Our trip begins in the afternoon on Day 1. We recommend you arrive in Joshua Tree by 12 p.m. so you can settle into your accommodations before meeting our guide and group. Our trip concludes in the morning on Day 3. If leaving Joshua Tree directly after our trip, feel free to leave any time before check out at 11 a.m.
You’re in good company. Solo travelers typically make up about half of our small groups. With curiosity at the center of our experiences, there’s a natural camaraderie that develops over the course of a trip. We have two options for you:
Shared Room: You’ll be matched with another solo traveler of the same gender.
Private Room: Have your own room, subject to availability, for a supplemental cost of $150. After booking your trip, please request a single room when you fill out your traveler information form and we’ll send a separate invoice for the cost.
Travelers should feel comfortable hiking up to three miles in the National Park, climbing stairs, and remaining on their feet for long periods of time.
Desert weather is full of contrasts. Winter temperatures can hit freezing at night with highs of 75° F, and spring highs can reach into the 90’s during the day.
Most dietary restrictions can be accommodated, but please let us know if you have any severe allergies or prescribed dietary restrictions.
Your participation in this trip helps support artists who are working on major projects and preserves projects that have already been completed. You'll also be supporting the conservation of land in the Mojave's fragile desert ecosystem. You can increase your impact by sharing the stories of the artists and projects you encounter, and, if you wish, purchasing art during the trip.
