Southwest Sampler Itinerary

DAY 1 » »

Arrive in Moab, Utah on Tuesday and check into the Gonzo Inn anytime after 3:00 PM. Take some time to explore this unique Southwestern town and its breathtaking surroundings. Top off your day with a relaxing night at the Gonzo Inn. (Prices are based on double occupancy. Please select "single supplement" if anyone in your party will be staying alone in a room).

​DAY 2 » »

Enjoy continental breakfast at the Gonzo Inn, then meet at the Moab Adventure Center (7:15 AM) for an exploration of Arches National Park with our knowledgeable guides. You won’t believe your eyes as you tour this one-of-a-kind place where over 2,000 natural sandstone arches and towering red rock formations blanket the landscape. After hiking and touring Arches, you’ll eat lunch at one of Moab’s most popular local bistros. At sunset, you’ll experience the exhilaration of an incredible off-road excursion aboard the worlds’ most serious 4x4. Be sure to take pictures because no one back home will believe where you’ve been!

​DAYS 3 & 4 » »

Check out of the Gonzo Inn and experience a 2-day Colorado River rafting adventure (meeting at 9:45 AM). On the first day of your trip, you’ll completely unwind as you drift between crimson cliffs on serene waters. Savor a barbeque dinner as you watch the sunset bathe the red rock landscape in a dazzling array of light and color. Then fall asleep to the sounds of the river under a blanket of innumerable stars. The next morning, you’ll awake to the smells of coffee brewing and bacon sizzling. After breakfast, we break camp and head downriver. Moderate whitewater, wondrous sites and a delicious lunch round out the perfect 2-day rafting adventure. You’ll arrive back to Moab around 2:00 PM.
