Go Deep!

Strataca Salt Mine

Explore a working Salt Mine! This enormous crystal superstructure produces an average of 4 tons of salt per minute. Our tour takes us 650 feet below the Earth’s surface. Journey with us as we explore the amazing connection between the world’s most abundant mineral, life on Earth, and, the greatest creative event since the Creation itself—Noah’s Flood.

“I have been on more than a hundred tours and I want you to know, Russ, the Grand Canyon tour was the very best tour I have been on in my entire life!”

Adam-ondi-Ahman

The Lord told Joseph Smith the name of this sacred place. It is where Adam gathered his posterity, where Nephites walked, and where early Saints gathered after being driven from Independence, Missouri. It is here that we will gather again as sons and daughters of Adam & Eve for a devotional and testimony meeting as we learn little-known parts of this great story.

Nauvoo

The beautiful City of Joseph is a treasure trove of history, including connections to Noah’s Flood, the Nephites, and Restoration of the Gospel. From a discussion about the sacred symbols encoded on the Nauvoo temple, to the retracing of the steps of the Saints down Parley street as the Saints left their beloved city in 1846, our time here will be packed with learning.

“Going on the Grand Canyon, Petrified Forest tour trip was truly a highlight in my life. I was able to experience the evidences’ of the Universal Flood first hand with UM editor Russ Barlow and author Dean Sessions of the Universal Model – A New Millennial Science. TruthSeekers Adventures tours are fantastic. Hannah Stoddard’s knowledge of Church history make her an excellent guide. I’m looking forward to the next tour! Thanks TruthSeekers!”

Experience

Carthage Jail

As one of the most iconic sites related to Church history, the jail at Carthage is the place where the Prophet Joseph and his brother, Hyrum sealed their life’s testimony with their blood. This is a special site, and a place where people have felt the spirit testify of the mission of Joseph and Hyrum Smith. It stands as testimony of the two brothers’ faithful sacrifice for the cause of Christ.

“TruthSeekers tours really helped me to appreciate the reality of the Creation and the evidences of a Universal Flood. Standing at the edge of the Grand Canyon on one tour, and then searching for several-thousand-year-old shark teeth in the Carolinas on another helped me comprehend the magnificent beauty of the earth, and the wisdom of the Creator! Russ Barlow & Dean Sessions did a fantastic job bringing these things to life on our tour!”

Noah's Ark

The largest timber structure in the world, the replica of the Ark in Kentucky defies description in word. This massive project brings the story of Noah’s Ark to life, showing the ingenuity, engineering, and work that would have been required to build something like this. Every visitor we have taken here comes away with a whole new understanding about Noah and the Flood.
