When you join one of our trips, we want you to have peace of mind. In response to COVID-19, we’ve:
Artists and creators have long sought refuge, clarity, change, or perhaps simply broader horizons here in the Joshua Tree region. Join us as we traverse the legendary landscape that’s supported countless creative endeavors—visiting innovative and experimental art installations, glimpsing mysteriously marked rocks, and experiencing the magic of the desert along the way.
We'll be staying at Sunlight Ranch, a solar-powered, permaculture airstream trailer community. Our accommodations will be in fully loaded vintage trailers with views of Joshua Tree National Park and the wide-open desert. Each trailer has a queen bed and a pull-out couch and can accommodate two travelers traveling together, or one solo traveler for a single supplement of $150, subject to availability.
The listed price of this trip is per person 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 checkout 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.
Have your own room, subject to availability, for a supplemental cost of $150. After booking your trip, please request a private room when you fill out your traveler information form and we’ll add the charge to your final balance.
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 90s 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.
