We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the trip start, which will enable you to adjust to the time zone and minimize the risk of missing the trip start due to flight-related delays. We recommend that you fly into St. George, Utah (SGU). You can contact the St. George Shuttle (800-933-8320, www.StGShuttle.com) to schedule a taxi ride from the airport to downtown St. George for approximately $25, one way. Or you can call for a taxi upon arrival at the airport and should expect to pay a similar amount. However, taxis are not necessarily waiting at this small airport so we encourage you to arrange transportation ahead of time for the transfer between the airport and your accommodations.
Alternatively, you may fly into Las Vegas, Nevada (LAS) and shuttle approximately 2 hours to St. George. The St. George Shuttle (800 933 8320, www.StGShuttle.com) cost $19-$49 per person depending on the shuttle type: Economy, Standard, Executive. Please visit https://www.stgshuttle.com/shuttle/fleet to discover the differences between their fleet vehicles. The shuttle will drop you off at their office in downtown St. George, and you can take a taxi to your pre-trip accommodations. A different shuttle company, St. George Express, offers door-to-door service from the Las Vegas Airport (435-652-1100, www.stgeorgeexpress.com). Prices vary by the pickup time of the shuttle. When making travel plans from Las Vegas, please note that St. George, Utah is on Mountain Standard Time.
If you choose to stay at the Abbey Inn the night before your trip, special rates may be available for Trek Travel guests, depending upon your travel dates. Simply mention Trek Travel when you call the hotel to book. For guests driving to the trip start, please note that you may not leave your vehicle at the Abbey Inn during your trip. Instead, you may contact Temple View RV (800-776-6410, please mention that you are with Trek Travel) to reserve a storage space for your vehicle the length of your trip. It's $10/day or $50 for 5+ days (up to a month). Temple View RV is a 0.4 mile walk from the Abbey Inn.
Your Trek Travel guides will meet you at the Best Western Abbey Inn (1129 S Bluff Street, St. George, UT 84770) at 10:00 AM on the first day of the trip. Once the luggage has been loaded, you will shuttle two hours to Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park. Please have your first day’s riding gear handy and separate from your other luggage to facilitate the bike fitting and ride.
If you will be late for the pick-up or are going to miss it altogether, please inform your guides. You will receive an email a week before the trip start with their names and contact details. If you cannot reach them, please call your first hotel and leave a message with your expected arrival time and contact details. We strongly recommend that you make the scheduled pick-up time, as there are few transport options to the first hotel. However, if this is not possible and you do need to arrange private transportation, we suggest you try the St. George Shuttle (800 933 8320, www.StGShuttle.com) to arrange transportation at your own expense.
