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 walking shoes 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, explore the artsy town of Moab or watch the sunset from your lodge on the shores of the Colorado River.

Why you'll love this trip
  • See Fisher Towers, one of the Utah canyon country’s most bizarre landscapes, which are a maze of soaring fins, pinnacles, minarets, spires, and strangely shaped rock formations.
  • Explore the famous towering red rocks of Utah on two feet, with a hike to the panoramic plateaus of the stunning Canyonlands National Park.
  • Enjoy a sunset picnic overlooking the Colorado River in the high desert of Dead Horse Point State Park, where ancient hunters and Wild West cowboys once roamed.
  • Indulge with a stay in a ranch perched along the shores of the mighty Colorado River and framed by majestic, 2,000-foot red cliffs.
  • Support local industry with a visit to a 40-year-old winery that started as a university agricultural project and today specialises in single-vineyard estate-bottled wines.

Is this trip right for you?
  • This is a walking trip so a good level of fitness will help you to fully enjoy it.
  • Moab desert is hot, therefore some of the walks will take place very early in the morning. Regardless, all sorts of sun protection is a must.
  • This trip starts at 8am on Day 1 in Salt Lake City. Please make sure you can make it on time (or book pre-trip accommodation) as we will travel to Moab straight after the Welcome Meeting.
  • Your adventure wraps up at 5pm and overnight accommodation is not included on that day, so please plan your journey home accordingly.

Our trip was an exceptional introduction to Moab, Utah, with a thoughtful and wonderful guide. The itinerary was thorough for the amount of time we had, and adapted well to unexpected weather patterns. It was a very fun couple of days and I can't wait to book another trip with Intrepid Travel.

I do not recommend trips guided by Chris Patrick. He behaved unprofessionally, making advances on female travelers, by asking "how often [they've] been hit on" and making egregious comments that fetishizes women of color. His conduct made me feel extremely uncomfortable. Intrepid took my concerns seriously and provided a resolution.

What a fabulous trip! Indy our guide was spectacular... almost as spectacular as the stunning red rocks of Moab. The hike to Delicate Arch is a show-stopper. This is a real hiking trip, so expect some early mornings and sore feet. Every hike was worth the huffing and puffing. The scenery (and sense of accomplishment) are awesome when you make it to the top. I loved every moment of this trip - from the trip leader, to my fellow travelers, to the hiking - 5 out of 5 stars.

Fantastic tour - Indy was a great guide who was very knowledgeable about the area. This tour offers many amazing sites/hiking - I recommend this trip for someone who wants a very active holiday with a lot of time hiking and outdoors. Each site and experience was better than the last and I made great friends I hope to travel with again - definitely surpassed my expectations!
