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.

Jeffrey was a fantastic guide. He was confident, knowledgeable and an experienced guide. We saw parts of the park not visited by most visitors while learning about the geology of what we were looking at. His driving skills are out of this world and it was a new experience and a thrill for my husband and I. He was fun ,easy going, amicable and just an all around great guide. Thank you Jeff.

Amazing 1/2 day in Arches

We loved our trip to Arches! Larry, our guide was outstanding and our whole group really bonded! The off roading was AMAZING! We saw the "backcountry" of Arches that you would not see driving in a passenger car on the paved roadways. We saw most of the park and made note of some hikes we wanted to do the next day on our own. During our tour there were plenty of opportunities to get amazing pictures. This is a must do! Today we are doing Canyonlands with the same tour company!

We had an awesome time with Ric! He showed us parts of the park that we had never seen or even heard of before. He catered to a group ranging from 12-79 and kept us all entertained and happy the whole time. He even doubled back the next morning to drop off a guide shirt for my 12 year old daughter, which was way above and beyond. Highly recommend this tour and Ric as a guide!

Ben was a wonderful guide. He checked with us regarding what we were interested in doing more or less hiking. Fortunately we all agreed a bit more hiking. The whole day was fantastic from beginning to end!

Tyler was awesome. Very knowledgeable about every aspect of the park...and more. Very comfortable with the difficult trails and the Land Rover. I was great to go in the “back door” to some of the park’s features.
