The Ultimate Moab Canyoneering Adventure

Moab, Utah has long been one of climbing and canyoneering’s most sought-after destinations, but there is plenty of beginner-friendly rock on which to learn the ropes.Our seasoned guides will help harness your skills (and your courage) to take a step into the vertical world!

On this adventure your guides will lead you on a short hike over the sandstone fins toward the first drop into a narrow, but short, slot canyon. You'll harness up and drop in with their direction and guidance. Pools of water may greet your feet at the bottom of the grotto, casting reflections of long-gone rainstorms. Once everyone has dropped in, it's time for another very brief hike out of this narrow slot and out into the broader canyon where you'll rappel 120 feet off the face of Morning Glory Arch deep in Ephedra's Grotto. After the rappelling gear is stowed, a gorgeous, shaded hike out of Granstaff Canyon rounds out the tour. The gurgling sounds of gathering waters greet your ears, and occasionally your feet as you step through several stream crossings in this verdant desert oasis. Treat yourself to something new, challenging. Canyoneering is truly one of the most rewarding adventures in all of Moab.

Rare Perspectives

From the sunny desert terrain of Sand Flats, to the shadowy coolness of Ephedra's Grotto and Morning Glory Arch, and descending into a deep canyon where gurgling springs emerge from cracks in the canyon wall... and multiple stream crossings... you get perspectives on the desert that only the adventurous can!

Guided Instruction

Guides are serious about safety, they know where the dangers are, and how to keep you from them. They also teach you how to overcome what fear you may have and exchange them for fun and the joy of conquering what you did not think you could do.

Bragging Rights

It can be tough to capture the experience of canyoneering in a camera or even in words. But you know what you feel when you accomplish the challenge of doing something truly unique in a place that is singularly remarkable in beauty and scale.

Moab Canyoneering Reviews

Best in Moab Canyoneering

Before we left for our Ephedras Grotto Canyoneering Trip. The Moab Adventure Center sent us solid information and suggested gear/materials to bring along. Our guide was absolutely fantastic, from exhibiting a fantastic knowledge of the area to cracking jokes with the crew, we could not have asked for a better guide. Rappelling was an unforgettable experience and the sites of the trip were amazing.

Rappelled 120′ Off an Arch!

No issues in getting activities set up! Our guide for our canyoneering trip was knowledgeable in all aspects, safety was a high priority, still was able to keep things fun and took an interest in those he was leading! My husband and I had such a great time. This is an awesome memory we get to share together!
