On the first day, you'll hike the narrow canyons of the Fiery Furnace (if permits are available), then foray into the Windows section of the park to hike to Double Arch. The second day begins with a memorable sunrise hike to Delicate Arch before trips to Landscape Arch and Devil's Garden, with a break for lunch on the trail.
Breakfast & Lunch Included on Day 2.
Next, the tour moves on to Canyonlands National Park, a huge conglomeration of canyons, mesas, and buttes once described by naturalist Edward Abbey as "the most weird, wonderful, magical place on earth—there is nothing else like it anywhere." You'll explore the park's popular Island in the Sky district, a towering mesa with sweeping views from the White Rim sandstone bench. A hike to Mesa Arch promises rewarding photo opportunities.
Breakfast & Lunch Included.
You can take advantage of all that Moab has to offer on Day 4, when each tour-taker will pick from a list of outdoor adventures.
