Explore Utah’s Stunning National Parks

Join us as we road trip through the iconic National parks of Moab, Utah. Through dramatic desert landscapes, red sandstone spires, hoodoos and impossibly balanced boulders and formations, the Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park create an enormous and often unbelievable open-air gallery.


Road Tripping, Wild Women Style

Adventure and Adrenaline Collide

Explore the parks in the most intimate ways: rappelling into carved canyons, rafting the mighty Colorado and hiking a network of trails that lead to some of the most famed arches and pinnacles. We end each day with a stay in yurts for a “soft camping” kind of experience.

Hiking

The hikes on this itinerary are designated as easy to moderate to difficult. More difficult hikes may be offered as optional extras for those who are comfortable with the challenge, but they’re never mandatory!

The majority of the hikes will be less than 6 miles (10 km) with a maximum elevation change of 1,000 feet (305 m). Depending on the group’s comfort and activity level, we can tailor the itinerary to include hikes that are up to 10 miles long (16 km) with 1,500 feet (457 m) elevation change. Note: The average elevation in Moab and the surrounding area is 15,000 feet (1,524 m). 

The hikes will be on established trails with no technical aspects. There will be plenty of time for breaks and to absorb the views. Keep in mind that most of the trails are exposed with no tree/shade coverage. While your guides coordinate start times to escape the extreme heat and desert temperatures begin to drop in the fall, sunscreen and proper headwear and clothing are extra important.

The trails traverse over slick rock, through hoodoos, arches, buttes and amongst the dark red and lush green desert landscape. If a longer trail option is chosen, the elevation gain will be spread out gradually, avoiding intensely steep sections.

Geology

  • Slickrock: Wind-polished stone.
  • Mesa: An isolated flat-topped natural elevation with steep slopes.
  • Butte: Similar to a mesa (in that it is isolated and flat-topped) but narrower than a mesa.
  • Monolith: A huge, single upright block of stone.
  • Pinnacle: An individual, isolated column of rock shaped like a vertical shaft or spire.
  • Hoodoos: A tall, thin spire of rock.
  • Fin: A tall narrow rock, the residual wall of hard sedimentary rock that remains standing after surrounding rock has been eroded away
  • Slickrock: Smooth, wind-polished rock.
  • Petroglyphs: Prehistoric rock carvings created with stone chisels or hammerstones. (Not to be confused with pictographs, which are rock paintings.)

Canyoneering

  • Stemming: A technique used to travel up or down a slot canyon to navigate over wet sections. You place your left foot and left hand on one canyon wall and your right foot and right hand on the other wall. Kind of like a vertical version of Twister!
  • Down-climbing: A descent is made using a fixed rope gripped with one or both hands with a hand-over-hand movement (without using your feet).
