4. Arches & Canyonlands: Self-Guided Audio Driving Tour

Don’t miss a thing as your favorite audio tour narrator guides you throughout Arches and Canyonlands to not-to-be-missed viewpoints, with fascinating stories, tips and directions along the way. Follow the suggested itineraries, or divide the commentary and create your own half, full or multi day sightseeing trips. Though these two National Parks essentially only have a valley between them, they are both amazing and yet remarkably different. No visit to Moab would be complete without seeing both Arches and Canyonlands. Major Highlights: Balanced Rock Delicate Arch Devils Garden Double Arch Landscape Arch Parade of the Elephants Park Avenue and Courthouse Towers Skyline Arch The Windows The Three Gossips Aztec Butte Grand View Point Green River Overlook Merrimac and Monitor Buttes Mesa Arch Upheaval Dome Includes: Arches National Park Moab has long been a favourite place for adventure sport enthusiasts like mountain-bikers and rock climbers but simply driving the Arches National Park route as a sightseeing day trip is incredible in its own right. With an introductory explanation of the complex geological forces required to create features like The Windows, and the slow constant affect weather elements have to change the landscape you’ll appreciate how remarkably unique it is. Hear stories about the characters who were drawn here and the fragile ecosystem that supplies a lifeline to a surprising amount of diversity. But with over 2,000 arches located throughout the park, and most travellers on a limited schedule, you'll be led to not-to-be-missed features like Delicate Arch, Double Arch and Landscape Arch. More time may allow you to visit Skyline Arch and Devils Garden areas, as well as many more. Canyonlands National Park Canyonlands offers a vastly different experience even though it is only across the valley from the more famous Arches National Park. Starting in Moab, you'll travel to the Island in the Sky District continuing along Grand View Point Road. Enthusiastic photographers should get up early if the want to capture Canyonlands’ most famous image - sunrise through Mesa Arch. If you start later in the day, arrange your time so you are still in the park for a spectacular sunset. Along the way you’ll examine perplexing elements at Upheaval Dome and how this has led to two different theories behind Utah’s “belly button”. A view to the Merrimac and Monitor Buttes will have you imagining them as the American Civil War armor plated ships, or ironclads, that they resemble. Gaze down into the depths at Green River Outlook carved by the unrelenting Colorado and Green Rivers. Those fit and properly prepared should hike the Aztec Butte Trail to view ancestral Puebloan structures called granaries. For those with limited mobility Canyonlands offers many easily accessible scenic viewpoints, and each one adds to understanding how this is an island in the sky.
