While engaged in adventure, folks may feel that they’ve been here before… and they have through movies!

Moab Adventure Center is at the epicenter of nature-themed adventure, promising activities that include rafting, jet boating, stand up paddle boarding, hiking, mountain biking, national park adventures and hot air ballooning. Hummer safaris, rock climbing, canyoneering and horseback riding are also popular pursuits. Many of these activities are conducted with guides, an arrangement that helps preclude the kind of damage to the land that can happen when uneducated visitors venture into areas where they perhaps shouldn’t be. Guides help people understand where they can move through back country with the least impact and most enjoyment possible.
Year-round occupancy for the area’s 3,500 beds runs between 74 and 80 percent, primarily from March through November. While availability on Moab Adventure Center’s rafting, hot air balloon and other activities can usually be accommodated, lodging may be an issue and people should book accommodations well in advance.
