Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your tour begins in the middle of Moab where you’ll meet your guide, and board the comfortable 4WD vehicle for the 5-mile (8-km) drive to the park. Once inside Arches National Park, your off-roading adventure begins when you leave the road by Doc Williams Point.

More than 2,000 giant sandstone arches are scattered throughout the park, which is the largest collection of naturally occurring arches found anywhere in the world. You’ll also find pinnacles, fins, and rocks along this epic landscape of rich red earth sculpted by time.

If some of this landscape looks familiar, it’s probably because you’ve seen it in the movies. Popular films like Thelma and Louise were shot in portions of the park, as were scenes for Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

If you choose the evening tour, there’s a chance you could see a fiery sunset illuminate the red rocks. Once the sun is below the horizon, stars sparkle in one of the darkest skies in the country.

Towards the end of the tour, you’ll leave the park via an old cowboy trail. It’s here where you’ll stop to see fossilized dinosaur tracks stamped into the earth.

Finally, after several hours of backcountry exploring in the southern Utah terrain, your tour finishes in the center of Moab from the same spot where it began.

Blaine was our guide & very knowledgeable about the topography & geology of the desert. He was also an excellent off-road driver. We went over rocks you'd never think you could navigate but he did! If we would have been up to hiking... we'd have seen more but we are 4 sr citizens and we had a great adventure! Thank you!

We had a great time in this half day excursion to Arches. It started by skipping the line and doing some odd-roasting to a back entrance. David was a great tour guide! He took the time to ask where we may want to go. He was very well informed. Our highlight was visiting the escalator off the back of the Skyline Arch 😜!

Great way to tour the park for first timers. David the guide was great. We toured in the afternoon so it was nice to be in an air conditioned vehicle. Did some short hikes to see some amazing sites.

Nice Excursion - Covid rules are iffy

Trip was very nice, but no social distancing in the car as the jeep was full. The excursion itself was fun and I would recommend it, but you have to make sure to enforce the mask rule yourself. I also wish there was more opportunities to stop for photos on the way to the landmarks we were visiting. At the designated landmarks, you have plenty of time, but on the way the landscapes are to beautiful and it was slightly frustrating to not have much opportunity to stop. We had a full moon over the arches last night and it would have been nice to have a special stop for that - how often are we going to see that? But overall, it was a nice trip and I would recommend it.

Had a great experience w/Navatek tours thru Viator. Going thru the back roads gave us an opportunity we would have never had and seeing the beauty at the Arches was amazing. Highly recommend booking w/Viator
