Hiking in Moab

Discover the enchantment of Moab's breathtaking National Parks.

The little hamlet of Moab serves as the starting point for some of the Southwest of the United States' most breathtaking scenery. This region of America is made up of old canyons, enormous rock formations, and gushing rivers where the elements have long since eroded the ground. Put on your walking shoes and visit Canyonlands National Park, where the Green River joins the Colorado, and Arches National Park, which is home to more than 2,000 arches. After hiking through the desert for a few days, visit the artistic town of Moab or take in the sunset from your resort on the Colorado River.

Itinerary

Day 1: Salt Lake City to Moab

Greetings from Utah! In order to meet your tour guide at 8 am to begin your trip, you must be in Salt Lake City as early as possible (or possibly the night before). Once everyone is collected, take a seat back, unwind, and enjoy the approximately 4-hour beautiful trip to Moab, which is home to some of the most impressive red rock formations in the whole world. You'll have some time to freshen up at the motel once we get there before we continue on to Dead Horse Point State Park, which is high above the Colorado River. What a way to begin your Utah adventure: a picnic at dusk with a view of Canyonlands National Park's magnificent cliffs! You are free to explore the local nightlife in the evening.

The junction of the Green and Colorado rivers, as well as large swaths of red rock cliffs and the amazing maize district, can all be seen from the southernmost point of this spectacular plateau known as the Island in the Sky.

Take a leisurely drive to a nearby winery that specialises in single-vineyard estate-bottled wines after your stroll. The vineyard was first started in 1979 as part of a Utah State University agriculture study to identify potential sectors to take over for the ailing uranium mining sector. Return to the Ranch for an afternoon of free time following the tour and tasting. Consider going for a dip in the pool or signing up for one of the lodge's extra activities.
