Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet your guide in central Moab and hop inside your 4WD vehicle for the 30-mile (48-km) drive to Canyonlands National Park. You’ll follow a portion of the 25-mile (40-km) White Rim Road loop, which provides jaw-dropping desert views of this red rock wilderness including the cliffs of Dead Horse Point rising toward azure skies.

Entering Canyonlands, you’ll stop to view the White Rim formation, an expansive rock terrace located 1,000 feet (300 meters) above the mighty Colorado and Green rivers and situated about the same distance below the Island in the Sky mesa. Search the rocky ledges for big horn sheep among piñon and juniper forest. 

Your guide offers the option to take several short but moderately challenging hikes just beneath the White Rim Sandstone level. You can scramble to caverns and more vista points overlooking the Colorado River or take in the landscape while you relax near the vehicle.

The 4WD tour of Canyonlands includes a stop for a delicious buffet-style picnic lunch accompanied by cold water and lemonade. Visit the not-to-be-missed sights of Gooseneck overlook, Lathrop Canyon, Musselman Arch and the Shafer Trail before your memorable day trip ends back in Moab.

Our guide Phil was great and we had enjoyed a great time and a relatively easy ride, comparing with the second one we took to the Needles the following day.

Our guide was great. The White Rim Trail was spectacular. The problem was the vehicle. Three out of four us were six feet tall or taller. The right front seat was stuck in its full back position. So whoever sat behind that seat had minimal legroom. It was quite uncomfortable. Even if the front seat could have been moved four passengers is one too many for a comfortable trip. The. vehicle's air conditioner couldn't cool the vehicle. It was in the high 90s and quite uncomfortable. At the end it was more comfortable to,open the windows.

Worth every cent. The guide was knowledgeable, laid back and willing to stop at any point for photographs or just to look. Lunch was quite adequate and unhurried, and the scenery is breathtaking. Highly recommended.

This was the tour of a lifetime. Our guide, Mike, was very knowledgeable, pleasant, and courteous. He took us places we never dreamed we would get to see. I would recommend this tour, and Mike, to anyone and everyone.

Navtec Moab gave us exceptional tour and they put themselves out to make sure it happened for us. Our driver and guide Mike was a great guy. He drove with immense skill Toyota Landcruiser and was so knowledgable about everything we were doing and seeing. We learnt so much! Lunch by the Colarado was a treat. Plenty of time throughout the day to get out and explore places there's no way you'd see otherwise. Went deep down into the canyons and way up on top of the Rim. As I said we learned so much about the geology of the place that it actually enhanced the rest of our holiday. Couldn't recommend this tour enough, we absolutely loved it. Be sure to ask for Mike, he was a pleasure to send the day with.
