What to Expect

Moab has long been a favourite place for adventure sport enthusiasts like mountain-bikers and rock climbers but simply driving the Arches National Park route as a sightseeing day trip is incredible in its own right.

With an introductory explanation of the complex geological forces required to create features like The Windows, and the slow constant affect weather elements have to change the landscape you’ll appreciate how remarkably unique it is. Hear stories about the characters who were drawn here and the fragile ecosystem that supplies a lifeline to a surprising amount of diversity.

But with over 2,000 arches located throughout the park, and most travellers on a limited schedule, we’ll lead you to not to be missed features like Double Arch and Landscape Arch. More time may allow you to visit Skyline Arch and Devils Garden areas, as well as many more.

We must exit the Park along the same road as we drive in, so there is different commentary to take us back to the entrance station and return to Moab.

FAQ

Is this tour included in the Arches Canyonlands Combo tour?

Yes, the full Arches tour is in the Combo tour too.  If you plan to visit Canyonlands as well as Arches, then purchasing the Combo tour is the best value and most convenient option.

What's the best time of year to visit Arches & Canyonlands?

Visitation is high March – October, with Easter, Memorial Day and Labor Day the busiest.

Visiting in the winter is nice, taking advantage of off-season rates and generally milder sunny weather.

Can you do Arches and Canyonlands in one day?

If you must combine both Parks in just one day, it’s recommended to do Arches in the morning/daytime – Canyonlands in the late afternoon until sunset.

Better if you can spend a full day in Arches National Park to see the main highlights along the scenic drive in one day and an extra 1/2 day in Canyonlands.

Add additional time if you plan on hiking.

Should I hike to Delicate Arch?

If you are in reasonably good shape, Delicate Arch takes a little over an hour to reach. Just be aware that the hike to the arch is all uphill, and there is no shade – so be sure to carry water and a hat, especially if it is hot!

How long is the drive through Arches National Park?

Around 40 miles (loop).

Moab has long been a favourite place for adventure sport enthusiasts like mountain-bikers and rock climbers but simply driving the Arches National Park route as a sightseeing day trip is incredible in its own right.

There are over 2,000 arches located throughout the park, so expect lots of stops for photos and time at viewpoints to fully absorb the scenes.
