There’s Still Time to Plan an Escape to Moab, Utah for Late Summer and Fall

MOAB, UT, Aug. 20, 2021 – America’s red rock playground has experienced an unprecedented surge in popularity this summer.

This is Moab, Utah, home of two national parks that are coveted icons to explore in post-pandemic lockdowns.

A June 2021 story in the Wall Street Journal reports that visits to Arches National Park were up 15 percent in April over April 2019. Visitations to Canyonlands National Park, where visitors turn when Arches’ parking lots are full up, have increased 30 percent in this time frame.

What does this influx mean for visitors?

“Nail down your accommodations ( and your preferred guided excursions as soon as possible and certainly before you arrive in Moab,” said Cort Wright, manager of the Moab Adventure Center. This is the go-to outfitter for securing pre-set backcountry and national park access and tours. Moab Adventure Center specializes in all there is to do in Moab and bundles assorted activities and lodging to maximize enjoyment of Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park and the surrounding Colorado River country.

“Arrangements made in advance help deliver the peace and privacy you expect when surrounded by this natural playground,” Wright said. In fact, for early bird planners, Moab Adventure Center is offering excursions in 2022 at 2021 rates when booked this season.

The company has seen growing demand unleashed by the desire to return to nature and outdoor recreation. Compared to their record 2019 season, these following programs have seen phenomenal growth through the end of July 2021;

●       152 percent increase - Moab Zipline Adventure

●       88 percent increase  - Arches National Park Sunset Discovery

●       85 percent increase  - The Ultimate Moab Canyoneering Adventure

●       85 percent increase  - Moab Hummer Tours

●       64 percent increase  - Full-Day Colorado River Rafting Adventure

“Making reservations well in advance of arrival helps assure that we can gear up to accommodate your specific adventure requests,” Wright said. “Now is the perfect time to plan for a fall escape to Moab. Everyone loves autumn in Moab. Just about every trip operates right through the end of October and all land-based tours through mid-November.”
