Moab Adventure

A desert hiking adventure in the wild landscapes of America’s Wild West 

The charming town of Moab is the gateway to some of the most spectacular scenery in all the Southwest USA. Ancient canyons, towering rock formations and flowing rivers make up this corner of America, where the elements have carved away the land for centuries. Lace up your best hiking boots and explore Arches National Park, home to over 2,000 arches, and Canyonlands National Park, where the Green River meets the Colorado. After days of desert hiking, unwind at the local bar and swap tales of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, who used the canyons to hide from the law in the late 1800s.

Day 1: Salt Lake City - Moab

Welcome to Utah! You’ll need to make sure you arrive into Salt Lake City bright and early (or perhaps the night before), so you can meet your leader at 8 am to kick off your tour. Once we’ve all gathered, sit back, relax and enjoy the scenic drive of approximately 4 hours to Moab, home to some of the most striking red rock formations in the world. Once we arrive, you’ll have time to freshen up at the hotel before we head to Dead Horse Point State Park, located high above the Colorado River. You’ll enjoy a sunset picnic overlooking the majestic cliffs of Canyonlands National Park – what a way to start your Utah adventure! In the evening, you’re free to explore the local nightlife in the town of Moab.

Day 2: Arches National Park

It’s an early morning with a wake-up before dawn and a trip to Arches National Park, home to more than 2,000 natural stone arches, rock formations and giant, balancing rocks. Our rugged, half-day hike takes you through this famous US landmark, along a trail marked by cairns. Eventually, you’ll wind our way around a rock wall to view a magnificent natural arch just as the sun is rising. After you come down from our viewpoint, you’ll work our feet a bit more with some additional hiking throughout this stunning area. The hike is a 2-mile loop which enables you to see different arches, including the largest rock arch on the planet, Landscape Arch. There are also shorter options if you prefer to take a slower pace. Back in Moab, the afternoon is yours to enjoy. You can take a swim in the pool, walk around this artsy town or book an optional evening tour.
