    Who We Are

In short, we’re A World of Unforgettable Experiences®. We’re a travel company, but we’re also more than that. We operate in and near some of America’s most iconic National Parks and offer unique and personal tours by rails, trails, and sails, as we like to say.

We don’t just take people to see the world, we allow them to truly experience it. Xanterra destinations include some of the most beautiful, legendary places in the world. We encourage seekers, wanderers, and trailblazers to escape their world in exchange for one of the most beautiful places in ours. We connect you to the places you yearn to discover. And we do it with the utmost care for the plane and the people and places we encounter.

Who We Are 1


“With a Softer Footprint.” We want to tread lightly in the places we’ve been operating in for 150 years and encourage others to do the same. From diverting apples from landfills to our beloved Grand Canyon mules to recycling vegetable oil to fuel the Grand Canyon Railway, we recognize our responsibility to our consumers, the planet, and our industry. Making sure that’s a part of how we run our operations every day is some of the most important work we do.

Our Mission & Values

Legendary Hospitality with a Softer Footprint.

It’s our mission, but it’s so much more than that to us. We’ve been welcoming and hosting guests in legendary places like the Grand Canyon even before it was designated as a national park. And so we take our responsibility to these special places very seriously. On top of that, our 12 core values guide us in everything we do.
