Arches National Park Backcountry 4x4 Half-Day Tour

    What to Expect
    Your tour begins in the town of Moab after meeting your experienced guide. Board your comfortable 4x4 vehicle for the 5-mile (8-km) drive to the park. Once inside Arches National Park, your off-road adventure begins at Doc Williams Point.

    More than 2,000 giant sandstone arches are scattered throughout the park, which is the largest collection of naturally occurring arches found anywhere in the world. Find pinnacles, fins, and rocks along this epic landscape of rich red earth sculpted by time. Take in amazing geological formations such as sandstone spires and layered red rock. Admire the sandstone fin known as Marching Men and the 92-foot (28-meter) span of Tower Arch.

    If some of this landscape looks familiar, it’s probably because you’ve seen it one of your favorite Hollywood films. Popular movies like Thelma and Louise were shot in portions of the park, as were scenes for Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

    Towards the end of the tour, have the option to leave the park through the ruggedness of an old cowboy trail.

    After exploring in this unique southern Utah terrain, your tour finishes in the town of Moab from the same spot where it began.
