Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet your guide in central Moab and hop inside your 4WD vehicle for the 30-mile (48-km) drive to Canyonlands National Park. You’ll follow a portion of the 25-mile (40-km) White Rim Road loop, which provides jaw-dropping desert views of this red rock wilderness including the cliffs of Dead Horse Point rising toward azure skies.

Entering Canyonlands, you’ll stop to view the White Rim formation, an expansive rock terrace located 1,000 feet (300 meters) above the mighty Colorado and Green rivers and situated about the same distance below the Island in the Sky mesa. Search the rocky ledges for big horn sheep among piñon and juniper forest. 

Your guide offers the option to take several short but moderately challenging hikes just beneath the White Rim Sandstone level. You can scramble to caverns and more vista points overlooking the Colorado River or take in the landscape while you relax near the vehicle.

The 4WD tour of Canyonlands includes a stop for a delicious buffet-style picnic lunch accompanied by cold water and lemonade. Visit the not-to-be-missed sights of Gooseneck overlook, Lathrop Canyon, Musselman Arch and the Shafer Trail before your memorable day trip ends back in Moab.

Jeep tour of canyonlands

Our guide, Dave was fantastic. He was so knowledgeable about the history of the park, the different layers of rock and also the many movies that had been filmed at the park. A great day.
Awesome way to experience Canyonlands
, Jun 2021
great experience, incredible way to see and experience Canyonlands. You are immersed in the canyon not just observing. It is well worth the money and we highly recommend. Our guide Blaine was knowledgable and did an outstanding job making our day very memorable.

This was an amazing experience! Blaine was a terrific guide, extremely knowledgeable- He was able to answer everyone of our many questions about the area flora and fauna. Highly recommend this White Rim tour!
I'm dreading writing this...
, Apr 2021
I'm dreading writing this review but honestly it was a pretty bad experience. Canyonlands was beautiful! Unfortunately, our guide was TERRIBLE. We learned very little about the history of Canyonlands (although, he spent a significant amount of time explaining Potash). He also was obsessed with motorcyles, cars, etc. He spent 9 straight hours talking about every single motorcylce and car he ever owned. Sprinkled in the motorcyle talk was a bunch of talk about the old company he worked for and how terrible it was. It was a miserable experience.
Canyonlands National Park is amazing
, Oct 2020
WOW! This was amazing. We had no prior knowledge about Canyonlands National Park. It was an after thought to visit this park. It is amazing, beautiful and vast. I am so happy my husband and I visited this park. Taking the 4x4 tour of the White Rim was a perfect way to get to see this park. We were able to see Musselman Arch, and drive through areas most people do not get to see. This was a full day tour with lunch included. I recommend this tour to all.
Best kept secret

Great trip
, Oct 2019
Our guide Phil was great and we had enjoyed a great time and a relatively easy ride, comparing with the second one we took to the Needles the following day.
A very fun trip I hope to repeat...
