Arches National Park Tours

Arches National Park is one of five National Parks in Utah. Each of these "Mighty Five" parks claims its own way of showcasing the magnificent geologic diversity of the Colorado Plateau. Arches National Park Tours showcase the more accessible of more than 2,000 arches - the highest concentration of arches on the planet. Driving and hiking through this Jurassic aged wonderland provides a glimpse back in time when gentle geologic forces from deep below the surface bulged upward to crack the surface sandstones into fins. Telling you the secret of how these fins of sandstone then became delicate ribbons of stone suspended in mid-air is a mystery we will leave for the tour. Step right this way!

Great Arches experience

Heidi S.
We went to the Arches National Park on Tues Mar 14. Our tour guide, Kim, was not only very knowledgeable, but she made sure to relate to a 10 yr old, keeping him engaged the whole time. She also gave us suggestions of places to see after we were done with the tour. She was fantastic!

The best way to see Arches National Park

This is the place to go for river rafting, canyoneering and repelling, rock climbing, and other death-defying activities. The shop is the meeting place for many of their adventures; meet your guide and pick up your gear. We went for a less heart-pounding but excellent small bus tour of Arches National Park. A guided tour is the best way to see the park. Our guide, Dave, had a comprehensive knowledge of the park. He knew the best places to view and he knew the history of the park and stories about what we were seeing. He even taught us a new word, “pareidolia” which means the tendency to perceive a specific, often meaningful image in a random or ambiguous visual pattern. Easily translated, it means seeing faces or animal shapes in rock formations. The Arches are filled with these formations.

Desert Solitaire & Arches Park

Arches National Monument was set aside in 1929 when Ed Abbey, famed monkey wrencher for the environmental movement, was just a babe. By the late 1960's Arches was prepping a promotion from "monument" to "park" and Abbey was right there in the lonely backcountry working as the one-and-only backcountry ranger. Abbey's time spent in the desert (feeling conflicted about keeping it to himself and sharing the beauty of arches with the "tourists") is cleverly documented in his nationwide-environmental-cult-inducing book "Desert Solitaire".

Arches National Park boasts the highest density of natural arches in the world with more than 2,000 - 43 of which have collapsed since 1977. 150 million years in the making, and we are lucky enough to see the show!
