Why Moab?

Surrounded by an immense red rock playground, Moab, Utah, is unlike any other place in the world. Its postcard-perfect desert is adorned with giant sandstone formations, canyon mazes, rock spires, hoodoos and fins plus thousands of natural arches. The Colorado River flows past its northern border and several national and state parks are accessible from Moab.  Between the red rock wonders of Arches National Park, the incredible sandstone landscapes of Canyonlands National Park, and the cool forests of the La Sal Mountains, Moab offers endless opportunity for sight-seeing and exploration.

The town, with a resident population of just 5,000 swells to two to three times that in the popular spring to fall recreation season. Through the experts at MAC visitors can find great accommodation choices with dozens of hotels in Moab, condos, campgrounds and RV parks throughout Moab’s southwestern-style Main Street area.

Area Attractions

  • Arches National Park

Arches National Park preserves over two thousand natural sandstone arches, including the world-famous Delicate Arch, in addition to a variety of unique geological resources and formations. In some areas, faulting has exposed millions of years of geologic history. The extraordinary features of the park, including balanced rocks, fins and pinnacles, are highlighted by a striking environment of contrasting colors, landforms and textures.

  • Canyonlands National Park

Canyonlands National Park preserves a colorful landscape of sedimentary sandstones eroded into countless canyons, mesas and buttes by the Colorado River and its tributaries. the park sits in a vast basin bordered by sheer cliffs of Wingate Sandstone.

  • Dead Horse Point State Park

Located about 25 miles from Moab, Dead Horse Point is a popular destination for a day-trip. The central feature of the park is the spectacular vista that opens up as you stand on the edge of a 2,000 cliff overlooking Canyonlands National Park.

  • Manti-La Sal National Forest and Mountains

Along the eastern Utah border near Moab, the La Sal Mountains rise 12,721 feet above sea level. This part of the Forest provides climatic relief to the desert of the Colorado River Plateau. Narrow forest roads lead travelers to the high mountain passes, and into narrow canyons like Dark Canyon where the crystalline rock structure of the peaks is exposed for all to see or into Mill Creek where Oowah Lake sparkles as a small jewel amid spruce trees.

What to Do in Moab

Bordering town, the mighty Colorado skirts Arches National Park and cuts through the heart of Canyonlands National Park. Nearby, the historic and beautiful Green River carves its serpentine path through canyons deeper than the Grand Canyon. Trips range from mild-to-wild one-day and half-day excursions to multi-day rafting vacations. The Moab Adventure Center has information, continuous big-screen videos and special pricing. Advance reservations are suggested. See: http://www.moabadventurecenter.com/trips/rafting

Moab’s celebrated “canyonlands” is a postcard-perfect desert adorned with immense sandstone formations. Here, amazing red-rock terrain has eroded into canyon mazes, arches, spires and buttes. A 4x4 vehicle is perhaps the best way for people of all ages to experience the rugged beauty of this vast back country, and the vehicle which offers the most safety, comfort and exceptional climbing ability is unquestionably the Hummer®. Two and four-hour Hummer® Safaris, as well as sunset excursions, can be reserved at the Moab Adventure Center.  See: http://www.moabadventurecenter.com/trips/4x4

Stand-Up Paddleboarding is fast becoming one of the most popular recreational sports in the country. Now you can experience the Colorado River like never before. Paddle, relax and enjoy the ride on one of the most scenic rivers around. Transportation, board rental, instruction, guide, snacks and water are included. Approximate time on the river is 2 to 2.5 hours (time may vary based on water levels). Morning and Sunset Departures!  See: http://www.moabadventurecenter.com/trips/moab-stand-up-paddle-board-tours/

Moab’s must-do hike is the maze-like Fiery Furnace in Arches National Park. The hike twists and turns among contorted orange-tan fins, towers, spires and arches. Moab Adventure Center guides/naturalists lead two-hour hikes in this trackless area, pointing out hidden attractions such as Surprise and Twin Arches. Although the walk/hike is moderately strenuous in places, it can be enjoyed by anyone in reasonably good physical condition. A brief tour of the Park is provided along with the hike. See: http://www.moabadventurecenter.com/activities/hiking.php

Moab's legendary landscape inspires those of the vertical persuasion to climb and conquer, or drop a rope and descend into the hidden waterways that slice into the desert floor. You don't need any experience with climbing or canyoneering to enjoy these adventures with us. We provide all the equipment and instruction you need to enjoy a step out of the horizontal world. Find yourself literally attached to this iconic red rock landscape!  See: http://www.moabadventurecenter.com/trips/rock-climbing/

Many cyclists first heard about Moab when word spread about the Moab Slickrock Trail which loops through an expanse of rippled, undulating sandstone resembling a frozen, orange ocean. Although the Slickrock may be the nation’s most famous fat-tire route, there are dozens of other rock-and-mountain roads and trails. Rides range from a few hours to three or four days. Even novice riders can sign up for relatively level, easy terrain. The Moab Adventure Center has several guided trips and information. See: http://www.moabadventurecenter.com/trips/biking

The sheer magnificence of the several state and national parks and monuments surrounding Moab can best be appreciated from the airborne perspective of an eagle. In just an hour or two of flight-seeing, you can experience all of Canyonlands National Park, including the sculptured, red-rock canyons of the Colorado and Green rivers. Comfortable and reliable Cessna aircraft provide window seating for each passenger. A detailed flight map and stereo headsets facilitate interpretation.  See: http://www.moabadventurecenter.com/trips/flights

For those that have done it, they say it is like nothing else. The ride is smooth and tranquil in a balloon as you fly with the wind, rather than through it like fixed wing planes. With no fixed route or determined flight path, each balloon ride is a true adventure. Add to these sensations the thrill of an undulating desert floor rising and falling below you in dramatic sheer cliffs, spires, and gaping canyon country as far as the early morning light extends.  See: http://www.moabadventurecenter.com/trips/hot-air-balloon-rides-moab-utah/

Venture into the Wild West with gentle cowboy-trained quarter horses. Guided by a professional wrangler, you'll explore the trails made famous by John Wayne himself. New tack and equipment will make your ride as comfortable as can be. So saddle-up and take a trek into the horizon of Moab. One of the best horseback rides can be found through Castle Creek Canyon with views of towering cliffs and famous Castle Rock.  See: http://www.moabadventurecenter.com/trips/horseback

Visitors who “like to have it their way” can now call the shots on what they see and do in the area. The center’s custom tour program now puts all of this region’s ways and means of touring at the disposal of guests who prefer private travel over pre-set itineraries and group travel. Plans can be made in advance of arrival or on the spot. See: http://moabadventurecenter.com/trips/private-tours/

Nothing creates bonds and deepens friendships like outdoor family vacations. Discovering nature combined with exciting adventure will provide both fun and learning for the whole family. Those of us at the Moab Adventure Center who are parents and grandparents understand the importance of creating memorable active vacations for children and adults who want to share the most unforgettable, fun-filled adventure possible. See: http://www.moabadventurecenter.com/activities/family.php

Moab Adventure Center Arranges Private Winter Excursions in Utah’s Arches and Canyonlands

MOAB, UT, Nov. 23, 2020 – We all need a post-election tonic right now.

Suggestion: A winter road trip that doesn’t throw caution to the pandemic winds.

The red rock playground known as Moab, Utah, welcomes visitors year-round. But few know this region’s virtues in the quiet months of winter. The Moab area has long been renowned for its beautiful, otherworldly scenery that has been attracting filmmakers here since the 1940s. For example, movie buffs can explore miles of Moab that have hit the silver screen. These include, among others, Johnny Depp in the 2013 rendition of The Lone Ranger, Mission Impossible: II (1999) and Thelma and Louise (1990).

If you have a yen to write your own action scripts, the Moab Adventure Center can keep visitors engaged for hours on end in this territory embraced by Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park. The Center has a check list of preferred activities during the quiet months. Weather permitting, the staff can arrange the following, private party excursions.

  • Hummer Safaris: Where and when specific excursions travel are weather dependent. Possibilities include Hell’s Revenge Trail, a two-hour, off-trail thrills ascending, unbelievably steep, slick sandstone to access vantage points over remote canyon glens and Sunset Hummer Tour, a three-hour, off-road venture culminating with a salute to the painted evening sky.
  • Private Arches National Park Morning Tours engage visitors for four hours as a guide and driver provide insights into the formation of this unique landscape and its unparalleled wonders. Arches National Park has more than 2,000 known arches, most of anywhere in the world.
  • Arches National Park Air Tour takes flightseers over Courthouse Towers, North and South Window Arches, Delicate Arch, Devil's Garden, the Colorado River, Fisher Towers, and Castle Valley. Youth 2 and under fly free on a parent's lap. (2 person minimum)

The cooler temperatures of winter signal an eagerness for adventure. For example, January’s average high is 43F, rising to 63F by March when campgrounds open and river pundits assess the winter snow pack runoff with an eye to a new rafting season.

With the exception of Los Angeles, which is just over 700 miles from Moab, the major cities of the Southwest are all under 500 miles from Moab. To extend an adventure here, visitors may want to combine the red rocks with road trips to the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley and Zion National Park.

Through the late winter season, Moab Adventure Center recommends tapping into http://udottraffic.utah.gov to see real-time road conditions across Utah.

Utah’s Moab Adventure Center Extends Healing Adventures in Red Rock Country Through Year’s End

MOAB, UT, Oct. 13, 2020– The hiss of deflating rafts will soon mingle with sighs of relief this fall in Moab, Utah, America’s red rock playground.

Why sighs of relief?

Because this recreational community that is vested in sharing outdoor recreation with people from around the world is thus far emerging from pandemic 2020 intact and highly functioning.

“We (the community) were closed as of March 17 and into the start of our busiest time of year. But we’re bouncing back, slowly at the beginning, but now visitation has started to pick up,” reports Elaine Gizler, Moab Area Travel Council Executive Director. “We had a decent summer.” In early fall the Council began a marketing campaign to woo potential drive-market visitors from a 600-mile radius in Colorado and Utah. 

Brandon, Lake, CMO of the Moab Adventure Center, notes that their experience earlier this year mirrors that of the greater Moab community. Activities were shuttered for most of the spring and only resumed once safety protocols were in place in May. But despite a foreshortened season, this company reports a robust outcome. After re-opening its doors early summer, Moab Adventure Center has served over 20,000 avid adventurers on day trips and overnights.

“We feel so fortunate that our proactive plans, combined with the community efforts throughout Moab have allowed so many people to come and experience the breathtaking backcountry of southcentral Utah,” mentions Lake. “This summer has been extraordinary. I have never seen people so excited so share outdoor adventures. I believe it has been a healing process for many.”

Going forward into the fall, Moab Adventure Center’s staff is poised to offer small group, guided explorations of Arches National Park and surrounding areas through 2020 and beyond. Effective COVID protocols that have been in place since the spring will continue into the future as needed. While many will squeeze in one more float on the Colorado River before rafting trips wrap up at the end of October, the following adventures continue on through November and some even into December (weather pending).

Arches National Park offers the benefits of comfortable temperatures and often fewer crowds in the later months of fall. Tours run year-round. Other popular autumn tours that can be mixed and matched through November include:

  • Ultimate Zip Line Adventure is a 2.5-hour outing departing mornings and afternoons. Guests glide over the sandstone fins and gaps above Moab with a series of zip line cables and bridges. The per person rate is $134.
  • Horseback Afternoon Trail Ride spans 1.5 hours packed with the sights and sounds of the West and surrounded by 2,000-foot towering red rock cliffs enroute to Castle Rock. The per person rate is $100.
  • Moab Canyoneering Adventure offers morning and afternoon departures spanning five hours for a canyoneering introduction, with two rappels: 90 feet into a hidden chasm, and 120 feet off a giant rock arch, all the while following a winding canyon stream out to the Colorado River. The per person rate is $107.
  • Moab Rock Climbing also has morning and afternoon departures for a five-hour program that’s perfect for beginning climbers, kids, or gym climbers. The per person rate is $107.

Tried-and-true practices that were instituted for guests and staff when COVID 19 first hit will continue throughout the fall and beyond as needed. These measures include smaller groups, taking temperatures, conducting a questionnaire about health symptoms, requiring that guests and staff wear masks while in an enclosed vehicle and requesting that everyone social distance, among others.

Moab Adventure Center Activities Continue through November In and Around Arches National Park

MOAB, UT, Sept. 28, 2020– Moab Adventure Center reports that its staff will offer small group, guided explorations of Arches National Park through November this year. Effective COVID protocols that have been in place since the spring will continue through 2020 and beyond as needed.

With river rafting operations wrapping up the end of October, most of the tour operator’s small group and private adventures focus on Arches National Park this time of year, reports Cort Wright, General Manager of the Moab Adventure Center (www.moabadventurecenter.com/).

“Arches National Park in the fall has many benefits: crowd sizes are smaller, families with children are again engaged with school, temperatures are more pleasant and the fall colors are amazing in Courthouse Wash and on the 13,000-foot La Sal mountains,” he says.

Most popular autumn park tours include:

  • Arches National Park Sunset Discovery at $89 per person is a four-hour program where participants enjoy famous Balanced Rock, Courthouse Towers, La Sal Mountains, Petrified Dunes, and Panorama Point as the setting sun paints the surrounding sandstone monoliths and La Sal Mountains spectacular shades of color.
  • Arches National Park Morning Adventure is another four-hour option by tour bus at $89 per person. Get up close to amazing arches and chasms while enjoying guided hikes to many of the best sights.
  • Arches National Park Air Tour glides over spectacular formations such as Courthouse Towers, North and South Window Arches, Delicate Arch, Devil's Garden, the Colorado River, Fisher Towers and Castle Valley. The per person rate is $109 for a 30-minute flight.

Tried-and-true practices that were instituted for guests and staff when COVID 19 first hit will continue throughout the fall. These measures include smaller groups, taking temperatures, conducting a questionnaire about health symptoms, requiring that guests and staff wear masks while in an enclosed vehicle and requesting that everyone social distance, among others.

“These guidelines were met with appreciation and gratitude. Examples of this come from our reviews where guests expressed thanks for us having and adhering to our mitigation safety plan,” adds Wright.

To accomplish this, excursion vehicles that normally hold 29 people now carry just 15. Its 10-person-capacity vans currently operate with just six passengers. Enhanced changes include how vehicles were cleaned after every use.

Although the protocols that reduced passenger loads also reduced revenues, down 20 percent from June 1 to mid-September, Wright anticipates the company will make up some of the losses with the extended season of activities in Arches National Park that matches people’s passion to get out into the fresh air and wilderness.

Wright underscores that the adventurous share one thing in common. They count on Nature to help them recharge and reach new personal highs and goals.

Climbing into Fall - Cliffs and Canyons of Moab, Utah, Offer Perfect Autumn Escape

MOAB, UT, Sep. 1, 2020 – The adventurous share one thing in common. They count on Nature to help them recharge and reach new personal highs and goals.

America’s red rock playground in Moab, Utah, offers one challenge after another. This region is widely regarded as one of the best rock climbing and canyoneering destinations in the world. These are two pursuits often cited for helping people overcome their fears and meet other challenges in their lives.

“When people cluster at the bottom of a canyon wall waiting to climb, they’re already moving themselves mentally and emotionally out of their comfort zones,” says Cort Wright, General Manager of the Moab Adventure Center (www.moabadventurecenter.com/) in Moab. This is the go-to place for organizing adventures around Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park.

“Helping people learn the fundamentals of rock climbing is a favorite for our guides,” he adds. “Moab Adventure Center takes our customer experience very seriously. We’ve targeted excellent locations and created some wonderful programs that allow our guides and instructors to provide experiences that appeal to young and old, regardless of skill level.”

Conquering a canyon is a sure bet for a small group and team-building activity, Wright explains why.

  • First, new challenges like rock climbing have amazing potential to build self-confidence and bring people closer together. 
  • Second, when climbing, you have to do things that are outside of your comfort zone. When you’re all alone up there on the canyon wall, no one is next to you telling you what to do. You have to make decisions for yourself and by yourself. You learn quickly whether or not those decisions are good. If a decision turns prickly, you fail fast and move on. This process of making it to the top is all on your own.
  • Third, rock climbing is a great bonding experience. Maneuvering up – or down – a rock face is a personal challenge. Families, for example, get out of a child’s way – and head -- and let them figure it out for themselves. When this happens, it’s magic! Children – and adults -- come off the rock and feel so proud of themselves.

Fall is the perfect time to escape the heat and enjoy the usually dry climate. Rock climbing and canyoneering are offered here through November. Sessions are approximately five hours, morning or afternoon. All guides are trained and certified by the Association for Canyoneering Education (ACE). They have passed every advanced canyoneering and rescue course ACE has and have customized their knowledge to fit the needs of Moab Adventure Center guests and participants.

The per person rate for Moab Rock Climbing Introduction is $107 ($92 for ages 5-12). Participants at all skill levels learn through guided instruction how to improve face and crack climbing techniques, how to use and care for equipment, the techniques of knot and rope work and of basic belaying and descending. For details see https://www.moabadventurecenter.com/moab-rock-climbing

The per-person rate for The Ultimate Moab Canyoneering Adventure is $107 ($92 for ages 10-12). Guests learn how to rappel 90’ into a secluded grotto and then drop 120’ off a natural bridge to a natural spring. The experience is finished off with a 3.5-mile hike along a stream through a hidden canyon on the way back out to the Colorado River. For details see https://www.moabadventurecenter.com/moab-canyoneering

Private Moab Rock Climbing Lessons are perfect for small groups up to four participants. The group rate is $425 and hands-on classes run approximately 5 hours. See: https://www.moabadventurecenter.com/private-moab-rock-climbing-lessons

Online Booking is Unsung Hero Assisting Summer Visitors, Says Moab Adventure Center

MOAB, UT, Aug. 12, 2020 – In Moab, Utah, online booking is the unsung hero of this pandemic-weary, contact-concerned summer. Moab Adventure Center,the pulse point for all things adventure related in this world-renowned playground of red rock, reports online bookings are up significantly over the same period in 2019.

“More people are booking their Moab day trip activities online, avoiding person-to-person contact, closer to the day of departure than ever before,” said Cort Wright, Moab Adventure Center Manager.

During one week in June, 64 percent of bookings came in online compared to 57 percent the same week last year. Pointing to a strong recovery, overall June sales were up 27 percent over 2019 which was also a record year. Trip bookings in July also showed similar trends.

With COVID-related concerns on their minds, Wright noted that visitors are planning excursions to Moab closer to their desired arrival date. However, many bookings from overseas destinations have been postponed from this summer to next year.

Although the Moab Adventure Center offers a full spectrum of activities that can be enjoyed as private tours, Wright said most clients are opting for their regularly scheduled small group programs, which often means mingling with others while enjoying an adventure.

“Visitors are confident that we are taking seriously newly instituted protocols and preparations that will keep pandemic issues at bay,” said Wright. “More and more as we work our way through this, our visitors display an increased confidence in how we’re making things work. Overall, operations are feeling more and more normal.”

So far this season the most popular activities are those that come with healthy doses of fresh air: backcountry Hummer safaris, half and full-day Moab river rafting excursions, zip lining and canyoneering. To accommodate the surge in demand for half-and full-day rafting adventures while also keeping protocols in mind, Moab Adventure Center is sending additional boats on each trip to help provide better spacing and fewer people per raft.

In addition to booking activities online and last minute, the Moab Adventure Center is seeing an uptick in bookings of multiple activities, over multiple days via one easy transaction.

“We’re a vacation destination where people can feel comfortable getting outside in a healthy, sun-splashed environment. We see Moab as an increasingly attractive drive-to market where Arches and Canyonlands National Parks act as magnets offering travelers enticing places to escape and take a deep breath,” said Wight.

Moab’s vacation-related accommodations are open and following new cleaning protocols between each room use. Area restaurants are open for carry-out and will also seat a limited number of diners inside and on patios with appropriate spacing. Travelers won’t want to wait too late to book their accommodations and tours though, as many are now sold out for 2020.

Arches National Park Opens May 29; Moab Adventure Center Counts on Nature to Restore the Pandemic Weary

MOAB, UT, May 29, 2020 – Arches National Park in the world’s favorite red rock playground of Moab, Utah, opens to visitors on Friday, May 29. Guided tours of this iconic park will once again resume. In addition, a variety of half-day, full-day and overnight river rafting programs along the Colorado River have also begun again.

Moab Adventure Center, a full-service resource for the adventure-minded, suggests three guided park tours to nudge the housebound into the outdoors. The company is also armed with newly instituted COVID-19 mitigation and operations protocols (see: https://www.moabadventurecenter.com/covid-19

Guided Tours of Arches National Park

Daily morning and sunset tours of Arches National Park help interpret the 150 million years of geology and nature that have created this masterpiece of more than 2,000 arches - the highest concentration on the planet. Tour rates are $89 for adults and $79 for ages 5 to 12. See: https://www.moabadventurecenter.com/arches-national-park-tours

A third tour offers a breathtaking aerial tour of the park.

“The benefits of getting into nature for a few days are just what the doctor ordered – especially now,” said Cort Wright, Manager of the Moab Adventure Center. “As depression and anxiety diminish, our renewed vitality gains a foothold and positive attitudes surface. It will be a joy for us this summer and fall to see our guests transformed by the activities we provide.”

According to a study conducted by the University of Minnesota, “Being in nature, or even viewing scenes of nature, reduces anger, fear, and stress and increases pleasant feelings. Exposure to nature not only makes you feel better emotionally, it contributes to your physical wellbeing, reducing blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension, and the production of stress hormones.” For the full report see: https://www.takingcharge.csh.umn.edu/how-does-nature-impact-our-wellbeing.

As of May 1, 2020, the Southeast Utah Health Department authorized a phased reopening of businesses in and around Moab. Lodging, commercial campgrounds, restaurants and activities are now available and operating within recommended guidelines. The town is seeing quite an influx of visitors as so many now are choosing an outdoor vacation as the best escape with loved ones.

Moab Adventure Center is offering most of its regularly scheduled activities along with new private tours (www.moabadventurecenter.com/private-tours).

From the Jurassic Period to Present Times Moab Adventure Center Suggests Winter Activity in Utah’s Arches and Canyonlands

The cooler temperatures of winter signal an eagerness for adventure in the high-desert, red-rock playground of Moab, Utah. By early March the folks here will herald spring, open campgrounds, assess the winter snowpack and predict how it will influence river rafting come summer.

This recreation hub welcomes visitors during the quiet weeks remaining before the bustle begins. In fact, the Moab Adventure Center, open year-round, has a check list of preferred activities during these quiet weeks.

Local experts recommend first visiting the newly opened Moab Giants Dinosaur Park & Tracks (interactive) Museum. A Dinosaur Discovery Tour reveals Moab as the original Jurassic park. Then the endless expanse comprised of Arches National Park and CanyonlandsNational Park invites the curious to ponder where those ancient creatures might have ambled and foraged.

Following are suggestions on how to step into the Jurassic period (up to nearly 200 million years ago) while in Moab in 2020.

  • Moab 4x4 Hummer Tours range from two to four hours and even include a Sunset Safari Hummer Tour with hors d’oeuvres.
  • Moab Jeep Rentals enable private forays into backcountry that last a full day.
  • Mountain Biking Tours (which begin in March) in this mountain biking mecca include the Klondike Bluffs Mountain Bike Tour, a four-hour-plus adventure that leads to views of prehistoric dinosaur tracks and an astonishing overlook of Arches National Park.
  • Afternoon Horseback Trail Rides (also begin in March) showcase 2,000 foot towering red rock cliffs on the way to Castle Rock.
  • A Sunrise Hot Air Balloon Ride (March through October) offers the perfect vantage point to view the red rock desert and canyons of Moab and peaks of the 13,000’ snow-covered La Sal Mountains.
  • Moab Flightseeing Tours can be scheduled year-round for flights over Arches, Canyonlands or both, and also for nearby Monument Valley.
  • Moab High Ropes Course (opens in March) is a two-hour adrenalin agitator with an array of 40-foot towers connected by heavy-duty bolts and cables.
  • Hiking Arches National Park is a year-round, four-hour morning tour for hikers exploring this ancientplateau concealing more than 2,000 natural arches, representing the highest concentration of such wonders on the planet.

Through the late winter season, Moab Adventure Center recommends tapping into http://udottraffic.utah.gov to see real-time road conditions across Utah.

Visitors to Moab, Utah, Encouraged to Take Responsibility for Protecting Environment

SALT LAKE CITY, UT, Dec 3, 2019 – Taking ownership – and responsibility – for a pet, a cause or even a place comes after people feel vested in the pet, cause or place.

Take a place called Moab, Utah, for example. Every year this region known as the red rock playground is a joyful discovery for thousands of first-time visitors. But as the word continues to spread about this breathtaking destination, a new set of challenges arises.

On one hand, it’s a blessing to local businesses and economy that this remote region of Utah along the Colorado River is so popular. On the other hand, with every sound of an ATV and even with the quieter pace of a mountain bike or step of a hiking boot comes the potential to erode the playground’s fragile infrastructure.

“When our guests depart the river after a rafting adventure, or hike out of a canyon after canyoneering or step off a horse after horseback riding, or float over all of this beauty in a hot air balloon, they’re forever changed. And they ‘get’ why we ask them to become stewards of this landscape,” says Brian Merrill, CEO of Western River Expeditions that guides guests through the rapids of the Colorado River. A sister company, Moab Adventure Center, arranges activities for people staying for a day or a week in or around Moab.

Merrill’s team is taking a lead in inviting its guests to “Do It Like a Local.” This is the Moab Area Travel Council’s engaging video campaign showing guests how to vest themselves in Moab’s future by being respectful visitors. See https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCiCq99E3e2EQkpbJIq0pnAw

“I don’t think we have a problem of too many people, but we do have challenges on how to disperse them at certain times of day and in busy months,” says Merrill. “Our challenge is to showcase the region in the spring, fall and winter. The beauty doesn’t go away – but the crowds do.”

The region is expanding infrastructure to keep up with visitor demand. In 2020 an additional 500 lodging rooms are scheduled to come on line. However, since this infrastructure was approved, both city and county have created moratoriums on new nightly rentals, including turning a spare bedroom into an Airbnb. To help disperse visitors, regional and state marketing efforts are trying to divert people to a myriad of iconic sites beyond the bucket list Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park.

“Some long-time locals want the town to go to sleep again. Others value the fact that things are going well here. Fairly recent transplants bring along a not-in-my-backyard attitude and want to shut the door behind them. I understand all these sentiments,” Merrill says. He notes that Western River Expeditions does have approval for occupancy in a building that will house up to 64 employees, helping the company retain valuable seasonal employees and reducing the demand on local housing.

Jason Taylor is operations manager for the company’s Utah and Moab-specific programs. His messaging to Western River Expeditions and Moab Adventure Center guests echoes that of the Moab Area Travel Council. Additional sustainable practices include giving guests who are on multi-day outings steel vacuum water bottles they can take home with them, thus eliminating plastic. Recycling and using energy-efficient tools are imbedded into the protocol, as is the importance of hiring locally.

In addition, a major part of what Western River Expeditions and Moab Adventure Center are doing, according to Brandon Lake, VP and Co-Founder of Moab Adventure Center, is to help guests understand how to create a low impact during their guided exploration of the area. “Guides who can teach guests how and where to hike, ride and drive in our fragile landscapes can make a major difference in reducing impact over those who explore these same areas on their own without understanding the damage they may be doing.” This is one of the many benefits to choosing a local tour company to help you experience Moab.

Moab Adventure Center Recommends Booking Popular Private Tours Well Before Arriving at Utah’s Red Rock Playground

MOAB, UT,  – Time for relaxing together is a precious commodity. That’s why Moab Adventure Center, the go-to specialists in how to have fun and adventure in Moab, Utah, is seeing an uptick in guided sightseeing and adventure tours that are guest-exclusive – or private.

“Sometimes making small talk with strangers on a group tour isn’t in the cards,” said Moab Adventure Center Manager, Cort Wright. “More and more, families, friends and colleagues want an exclusive experience all their own, where it is easier to be there for each other.”

Adventures that have an intimate, romantic twist, such as rafting the Colorado at sunset followed by a candlelight dinner, have seen requests jump 50 percent this past year for private experiences. Also showing growth are private Hummer Safaris that are up 50 percent; there’s also growth in request for full-day, private rafting trips and horseback riding excursions. Privacy is also increasingly valued on scenic flights by hot air balloon and by small aircraft over Arches National Park.

Some guests find that tackling a new sport, like mountain biking or rock climbing or canyoneering, is best enjoyed if strangers aren’t around to ogle or critique their progress. Booking private experiences where you know the other participants is the key.

“If you know that visiting Moab is on your schedule for 2020, we suggest you go onto the Moab Adventure Center website (https://www.moabadventurecenter.com) well in advance of your planned arrival to arrange your private tours and to make sure you get into a group tour activity that works for your vacation schedule,” said Wright.

Moab Adventure Center offers an expanding menu of private tours for exploring this red rock playground situated between two national parks; Arches and Canyonlands. Clients can build a romantic river escape for just two or an active multi-generational family outing with age-appropriate activities and challenges such as national park tours, mountain biking, Hummer safaris and canyoneering. The Moab Adventure Center can design a custom program for just a day or plan a weeklong multi-day itinerary based on specific requests. The benefits of a custom trip may be, among others, to compliment travel schedules, to provide more intimate personal experiences, to bring unusual dining adventures to the tour and to let clients determine how and where they want to spend their time.

Privacy and exclusivity are usually top of mind when groups of any size plan an outing. Groups, large or small, seeking privacy are advised to start planning months in advance for the best availability and options. Corporate and special-interest groups are advised to plan minimally eight months to a year out in order to secure appropriate accommodations. A popular potpourri for corporate groups combines whitewater rafting with a Hummer Safari excursion and an afternoon in the national park with ample time for bonding and meetings. Some groups may want to go extreme adventure, while others seek an easy experience. Typical group itineraries of two to three nights start with a welcome dinner at a resort, breakfast, corporate meeting, activity, corporate dinner, guest speaker the following day, another activity, possible another meeting, then end with a farewell dinner and high-energy party.
