Full description
Begin your adventure into the stunning Utah landscape at the visitor center by the entrance to Arches National Park. As you set off on your journey, pass the towering formation of the Three Penguins and the geological Moab Fault, then pause at Park Avenue. Simply admire the formations, colors, and layers here or hike the trail into the park. Next, check out the distant snow-capped La Sal Mountains, the iconic Three Gossips, and the towering series of formations from the Courthouse Towers to Sheep Rock. Continue deeper into the park, admiring the petrified dunes and desert scrub while learning about the native Ute and Paiute tribes. Hear about their mythologies, way of life, and eventual struggle against Spanish invaders and Mormon settlers. Your journey into Arches will then bring you to the famous Balanced Rock formation, followed quickly by the two most popular stops: the Windows Arches and Double Arch. Enjoy jumping out and exploring these geological marvels up close. After, make your way through Arches’ unique Cache Valley to Delicate Arch, the unrivaled highlight of this park. Check out the nearby historic Wolfe Ranch and tribal petroglyphs, and decide if you want to see the famous arch from a viewpoint or hike closer for greater detail. Your adventure continues through the unique Salt Valley of Arches to stunning formations like the Fiery Furnace, Sand Dune Arch, Arches Forest, Skyline Arch, and Tapestry Arch. These are all optional stops and hikes. Finally, make your way to the farthest point in the park: the Devil’s Garden. Here, hop out to visit the famous Landscape Arch as the crowning vista of a surreal landscape.

The Park was closed when we first arrived due to too many visitors. Initially my wife and I thought we would return early the next day so I contacted your information email and was told our tour was good for a year. Ultimately we returned late that afternoon and had a great tour! The app was super easy to use and the additional information provided during the tour was very informative.

Excellent option! We were able to drive by all the stops and know what we were actually looking at. If we lost a point we could go back to listen to it again. And the way everything was explained was very clear helped us a lot to know what we were doing

The self driving tour was great for the Arches National Park. We were able to stop the audio at every site and get our and hike and view the area and rocks. Also having the rewind option & photos was fantastic so we knew exactly what we were learning about.
