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

Challenges Facing Global Playground - Regional Tourism Leaders Shed Light on Questions Surrounding Greater Moab, Utah, Region

Moab, UT, Jan. 23, 2014-- If you build it they will come. In this case the architect is Mother Nature. With the assistance of extensive marketing, in 2013 some 1,180,000 (according to Arches National Park) visited the greater Moab, UT, region.

However, questions are hotly debated about numbers of visitors, where they go and what they do. For some, only human-powered travel and recreation are acceptable. For others, everyone from hikers to motorcyclists should be allowed. For yet others, the area’s rich deposits of crude oil, natural gas and potash ought to be fair game for drilling and mining. At stake is everything from jobs and tax revenue to the preservation or degradation of some of the most stunning landscapes in the world.

Because of these and other concerns, Governor Gary Herbert of Utah in 2013 became the first governor in the country to create an Office of Outdoor Recreation specifically dedicated to promoting the outdoor recreation industry in the state.

One company heavily vested in recreation and tourism here is Moab Adventure Center (http://www.moabadventurecenter.com/). Its resources helped retain visitors in the region during the Oct. 1-16 2013 shutdown of National Parks when the US government closed for a 16-day period. While the government debacle affected private business, including Moab Adventure Center, the Center’s resources positioned in the heart of one of America’s great recreational oases precluded more than a 12 percent decline in visitors compared to the same time last year. The diversity of recreational offerings allowed some sectors of its business to show a sharp increase as people sought alternatives to recreating in the parks, with full-day rafting trips up 24 percent, backcountry Hummer safaris up 10 percent and mountain biking up 54 percent. Despite the shutdown, the company saw a 4.7 percent increase in visitors in 2013 compared to 2012.

Moab Adventure Center, at the epicenter of nature- rather than Disney-themed adventure, promises rafting, jet boating, stand up paddleboarding, hiking, mountain biking, hot air ballooning, Hummer safaris, rock climbing, canyoneering and horseback riding. Guides conduct many of these activities, an arrangement that helps preclude the kind of damage to the land that can occur when unguided and uneducated visitors venture where they shouldn’t.

Arches National Park is 4.5 miles from the Center and Canyonlands National Park 30 miles. The epicenter is Moab (population just over 5,000), county seat of Grand County, (population just over 9,000, on 3,694 square miles, of which only six percent is privately held). An historically rich area, many first-time visitors have a sense of the familiar thanks to an extensive list of films that have been shot here, including, to be released in 2014, “Transformers 4: Age of Extinction” filmed in Grand County.

Forty-three years before Moab Adventure Center was formed in 2004, its parent company, Western River Expeditions (http://www.westernriver.com/), was plying local waters on rafting adventures.

“In 2000 the same kinds of things were happening as they are now, but an adventure center was a brilliant idea to put everything in one place and offer a one-stop shop,” says Marian DeLay, executive director of the Moab Area Travel Council. “The parks were still going on; there was still whitewater rafting through independent companies. I can’t tell you of a company that hasn’t succeeded here. If a company closed, it was only because of the economy. Outfitters have been fairly lucky.”

This luck translates to raising at least 76 percent of municipal and county revenues through tourism. There are some 5,700 people in the county labor force, of whom approximately 3,000 are in some way serving the tourism industry.

The region offers 3500-plus guest beds. Year-round occupancy runs between 74 and 80 percent March through November. A transient rooms tax of 4.25 percent helps accomplish a $1.6 million tourism marketing budget.

“Residents understand that in order to have tourism, we have to pay for the services,” underscored DeLay. “Infrastructure needs are always growing and will continue to grow as we grow. The city and county have done really good planning.”

However there are issues surrounding tourism and its growth.

  • Are local / regional efforts to educate tourists creating good ambassadors of visitors and are they respectful and responsible guests?
  • Should guests stay on the beaten track or be allowed to be free to go wherever they want? Some say that there should be a designated wilderness region in Canyonlands National Park where the public would not be allowed to visit. The Utah legislature is looking at this issue.
  • Should the mostly public lands be explored for natural gas resources? Some drilling already occurs, said Brandon Lake, Moab Adventure Center spokesman. “There are always those who want more. We’re on both sides. There’s an economy to be run out there as well. Do we want something right in the middle of where we’re doing tours? A big oil rig would ruin the experience for our guests.”

Western River Expeditions is the parent company of Moab Adventure Center. Its CEO, Brian Merrill, noted that the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance has a list of areas they would like to see receive wilderness designation. “This puts limits on how you can travel in these areas: no motorized vehicles; only hike or float. The more current debate is less about wilderness designation and more about the potential for the Obama administration to create a greater Canyonlands National Monument through the Antiquities Act. This would encompass a huge swath and overnight become a national monument. This is the way a lot of national parks were created, first as national monument and then into a park.”

In this area there are a variety of uses for this land: backpacking, driving jeeps, drilling for oil and mining for potash, Merrill explained. “In an effort to provide an alternative to creating a controversial national monument, Congressman Rob Bishop, chair of the House Natural Resources Subcommittee, has been meeting with different interest groups on a regular basis and creating a piece of legislation that would put all these questions to rest.”

How? By constituent agreement that a map would designate areas appropriate to drill for, among possible others:

  • Oil and natural gas
  • areas for pure wilderness, even keeping mountain bikers out
  • a different design for the river corridor
  • and a clear definition of where people can go in a motorized vehicle.

“We’re hoping this will be a model for these kinds of decisions moving forward. It’s remarkable how diverse groups are coming to the table and playing together. I think people are catching the vision and on all sides, people understand that we do have areas that we agree on and if we all give up a little, everyone can get quite a bit of what they want,” said Merrill.

Moab Adventure Center (http://www.moabadventurecenter.com/) is a division of Western River Expeditions (http://www.westernriver.com/), an adventure travel company headquartered in Salt Lake City, with operations and offices in Moab, Utah and Fredonia, Arizona. The company is the largest single tour provider in Moab, UT. Its programs are available from March through October.

Epicenter of Utah’s Outdoor Recreation, Moab Adventure Center, Reports Strong Spring/Summer Bookings

Moab, UT, June 7, 2013- Moab Adventure Center (MAC) http://www.moabadventurecenter.com/, a one-stop-shopping, activities, reservations and information hub in the epicenter of Utah’s outdoor recreation, reports strong early season bookings and a growing trend for the drive market to book last-minute.

“This year could be a record-setter for advance bookings, and we still have good availability for our half-day and longer adventures thanks to reservation management and increased capacity,” notes Brandon Lake, Moab Adventure Center Co-Founder. 

However, while many of the Moab activities offered can be booked up to the day of departure, Lake advises that visitors should book their lodging well in advance of arrival. Choices range from luxury home and villa rentals to dude ranches and motels.  See: http://www.moabadventurecenter.com/lodging/ 

Moab Area Travel Council spokesperson Marian DeLay reports that room tax collections are up 10 percent over last year at this time and that Utah’s five national parks will benefit from an aggressive national advertising campaign now running, as well as from the U.S. trend for people to take shorter, closer-to-home drive trips. 

There are daily flights into Moab’s Canyonlands Field (CNY) from Denver, CO and Prescott, AZ aboard Great Lakes Airlines or guests may opt to drive five hours from Denver, four hours from Salt Lake City or 90 minutes from Grand Junction.  See: http://www.moabadventurecenter.com/transportation/

For first-time visitors to the region, Moab Adventure Center suggests their 4 day / 3 night Southwest Sampler package including lodging, two days of Colorado River rafting, a night of beach camping and exploration of Arches National Park. The all-inclusive package is priced at $615 per person, double for adults and $515 per person, double for ages 5 to 15. See: http://www.moabadventurecenter.com/trips/packages/southwest.php

Bordering Moab to the north and west, Utah’s red rock fantasylands, Canyonlands National Park and Arches National Park, offer time-challenged visitors an immersion course in geology and ancient cultures when they fling themselves into activities showcasing the region’s beauty and diversity. 

The advantage of this region, notes Lake, is the choice of activities for all ages and abilities, from hot air ballooning to mountain biking to river rafting and more. His company arranges the equipment and guides for many of the region’s offerings that can be purchased as half and full-day and multiple-day programs. See: http://www.moabadventurecenter.com/activities/

In an effort to encourage guests to stay in Moab longer and to save some money, Moab Adventure Center offers guests a 10 percent discount off each activity when packaging three or more select single-day adventures together.

Give Utah’s Canyonlands Four Days; Play Four Ways with Moab Adventure Center

 

Moab, UT, April 1, 2013- Moab Adventure Center suggests four ways to enjoy four days in a region of the world that has, over millennia, become a geological masterpiece. Bordering Moab to the north and west, Utah’s red rock fantasylands, Canyonlands National Park and Arches National Park, offer time-challenged visitors an immersion course in geology and ancient cultures when they fling themselves into activities showcasing the region’s beauty and diversity.

Moab Adventure Center (MAC - http://www.moabadventurecenter.com/) is a one-stop-shopping, activities, reservations and information hub in this epicenter of outdoor recreation that’s also known as “the mountain biking capital of the world.” Half-day and longer adventures over land, through the air and in the water can be arranged in advance of or upon arrival in Moab, although it’s advised that lodging, also listed on the MAC website, be lined up in advance.

Here is how to spend four perfect days in Moab, Utah:

Day One– Arrive, unpack and head out on an early evening sunset hummer safari to get an off-road overview of the region.  This exhilarating 3-hour adventure leaves visitors in awe of both the one-of-a-kind 4x4 experience of driving over “slickrock” terrain and the astounding views that seem to go on forever in every direction.

Day Two– In the morning discover why people from around the world come here to experience rock climbing and canyoneering. This afternoon, cool off on a standup paddle board tour on the calm waters of the Colorado River with each bend revealing towering red rock cliffs, multicolored sandstone domes or perhaps a band of deer drinking under the willows.

Day Three– Don your life jacket for a full day of rafting on one of the most popular stretches of the Colorado River, a scenic float through moderate rapids. The outing includes a riverside barbeque with time for swimming.

Day Four– Rising before the sun, a visit to Moab comes to an aerial climax with a Hot Air Balloon Sunrise Adventure floating over rugged canyons, fanciful rock towers and arches and soaring close to the ground as the balloon climbs over a sandstone butte to see the land drop off hundreds of feet below.

Moab Adventure 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, custom experiences over preset itineraries and group travel. 

“We’re finding that many guests just want to experience an adventure as a couple, with their own family or a group of friends. They may want to celebrate an anniversary atop a spectacular vista while enjoying a romantic candlelit dinner with no one around for miles, enjoy birthday cake on a riverside beach while the sun sets, take the family reunion to the next level with a private off-road Hummer adventure, or find an unimaginable setting for a proposal,” said Brandon Lake, co-founder of Moab Adventure Center. “The possibilities for amazing, custom adventures in this area are very exciting!”

The hourly rate for a private Hummer tour is $350 for one hour with a driver/guide in a private 4x4 vehicle for up to eight guests; add $50 per person for an orchestrated sunrise breakfast or sunset dinner deep in the backcountry.  An hour-long Private Photography Tour is $150 for the vehicle and driver/guide. 

Out on the water the rate is $600 per departure for up to six guests with a guide on a Private Stand-Up Paddle Board Adventure on the Colorado River. Included are transportation, paddleboard rental, instruction, guide, snacks and water. A Private Sunset Raft Trip showcases the spires of Castle Valley caught in the evening sun. The rate is $300 per person (2 passenger minimum). 

Private Tours of Moab and Beyond are $150 an hour for a vehicle and driver/guide who reveals the most spectacular locations in Moab and nearby destinations: the habitats of dinosaurs and ancient Puebloans, the lore of outlaws and the sites of Hollywood hits such as The Lone Ranger, Mission Impossible, Star Trek, 127 Hours and City Slickers II

Moab Adventure Center Pioneers Stand Up Paddleboard Tours On The Colorado River Near Moab, Utah

 

Moab, UT, May 17, 2012– The award-winning Moab Adventure Center http://www.moabadventurecenter.com/ creates diverse opportunities to explore the red rock playground bordering Arches and Canyonlands National Parks.  Now for the first time ever on the Colorado River in Moab, Utah, this innovative company brings the fastest-growing water sport, Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) to an imaginative array of guided experiences to explore this region’s scenic wonders.

Stand Up Paddleboard tours, accessing a calm section of the Colorado river, include transportation to the put-in and back from the take-out, board rental (long, 10 to 12-feet Surftech paddleboards), adjustable paddle, personal flotation device, instruction on beach and water, guide, water and snacks. The 2 to 2.5-hour excursions depart mornings and at sunset. Special introductory packages available from now into October are $75 ages 16 and up and $55 ages 10 to 15 (regularly $95 and $75 respectively). See: http://moabadventurecenter.com/trips/moab-stand-up-paddle-board-tours/

This sport that began in Hawaii is “easy to master for just about any age, and provides an excellent full-body workout,” said Brandon Lake, co-founder of Moab Adventure Center. He added that after just a short orientation, guests can stand up on the boards and paddle away. “With the breathtaking scenery of the Colorado River’s canyons, spires and mesas taking center stage, we even see people lying down on their backs, snapping photos and watching the clouds and cliffs drift by. It’s very different than paddling on the ocean or a lake where the scenery is more static,” added Lake.  (See the Moab stand up paddleboard pictures online).

Lake points out, “If a member of your party does not wish to paddleboard, but still wants to float along, we will be happy to provide an inflatable kayak (duckie) to play in.”

According to industry insider, Don Keith, “the sport of Stand Up Paddleboarding is riding a huge wave of popularity across the U.S. and it isn’t likely to crest any time soon. People who wouldn’t climb on a surfboard to save their lives in the past are flocking to the sport of Stand Up Paddleboarding in droves.”

“Virtually anybody can SUP, and the learning curve is very short,” said fitness expert Rod Edmonson. “If a person can stand, they can probably learn to Stand Up Paddleboard. Plus, you’re getting an excellent full-body workout for the abdomen, back, arms and legs, as you have fun.”

SUP burns more calories than many other activities, although to the casual observer it looks calm and relaxing. Experts report that women can burn 500 to 700 calories/hour and men, 800 to 1000 calories/hour while engaged in SUP.

As with other Moab Adventure Center activities, if the Stand Up Paddleboard tour is booked in tandem with a minimum of two other MAC programs there’s a 10 percent discount on each activity. See: http://www.moabadventurecenter.com/trips/packages/
