Canyonlands National Park Half-Day Tour from Moab

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Your tour begins in the middle of Moab where you’ll meet you professional guide, who will help you get comfortably situated inside of the off-road, 4WD vehicle. Enjoy the 30-mile (48km) drive from Moab to Canyonlands National Park, where you’ll explore the popular Island in the Sky District with its spectacular desert scenery.

    Start off atop a mesa with views looking out over the horizon before your guide deftly maneuvers the switchbacks of Shafer Trail. On this section of the 100-mile (161-km) White Rim Road Loop, you’ll make stops at spectacular Gooseneck Overlook and famous Musselman Arch, and photograph vistas of the Colorado River and the view from Thelma and Louise Point.

    In addition to the popular lookouts, your expert guide will take you to spots that aren’t as frequently visited, where you’ll find everything from ancient Pueblo rock art to vertical views down the canyons. You’ll learn the history of the Pueblo people who inhabited the Four Corners area, and aside from the culture and history lessons, your guide will also explain the geology of the red rock canyons before you.

    When you stop for a break to take photos, venture out on one of the short trails that leave from many of the viewpoints; you’ll get a different perspective and angle for photographing the canyons.

    When this Canyonlands tour from Moab is over, your guide will return you to the middle of Moab to the spot where the tour began.

    Had been to Canyonlands before, Dreamed of coming back and 4 wheeling in the bottom. So glad we let Navtec do the driving instead of renting a vehicle. Felt safe with Blake negotiating the sharp switch backs and unmarked roads in the canyon. He also knew lots of "secret" spots

    This tour takes you off the beaten path and you get to see what only a fraction of others who visit arches get to see. Although the ride was bumpy and washboard like at times, it was well worth it. Tyler was a great host and a tremendous amount of information on the area. Our

    Our guide Tyler was terrific. Very knowledgeable about the area. So glad he was driving up Shafer Trail. Views were breathtaking. This tour took us places we would never have gotten to ourselves. We were so impressed we booked another trip the next day and requested Tyler.
