Overview
What to Expect
Itinerary

Arrive at Desert Highlights at the chosen time (pick up from hotel or vacation rental can be pre-arranged). Your guide will outfit you with all of the necessary gear and drive your group to the start of the canyon. We'll hike, climb, scramble, shimmy, and rappel through a beautiful red rock, water carved canyon. This tour is suitable for beginner and experienced canyoneers alike. Desert Highlights has experienced and knowledgeable guides that will literally "show you the ropes", ensuring your safety and teaching you everything you need to know to descend the canyon safely. We are extremely passionate about our backyard and you'll gain knowledge and respect for our desert environment while out on your Moab canyoneering adventure! This tour typically lasts anywhere from 4 to 6 hours.

This was my wife and my first canyoneering experience. Our guide Jake was great. He took the time to explain technique , safety, and alleviate our fears. This trip does an excellent job of easing you into the final large rappel. The scenery was beautiful and I highly

Our family of 5 had an awesome time canyoneering with Herb and Jake. Between the pools of water, tight squeezes and down climbing there were fun memories made by all. In addition, the kids really enjoyed Herb's geology knowledge that he shared with them.

We're so happy you had a great time out there with Herb and Jake - they are both excellent guides! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review for us! I'd like to note for those that are reading - the awesome photo posted here is of Zero Gravity Canyon. This is an amazing canyoneering route, but is not our half day canyon tour under which this review is posted. Both our half day tour and this zero gravity tour (pictured) are a lot of fun in their own ways, but they are very different :) Thanks again for choosing Desert Highlights and leaving us a nice review! We hope to show you guys around the desert again sometime!

We spent one day canyoneering with Jake and the next day climbing with Herb. Both days were awesome, as were both guides. We had a great time and would definitely use Desert Highlights over any other guide service, and would definitely recommend others to use them as well. You

My wife and nineteen year old daughter and I had an excellent time learning the ropes, so to speak, of canyoneering with our excellent guide Kai. What made this adventure even better was it was just the guide and my family on the excursion. We were able to move at whatever pace

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a nice review for us! Many folks are nervous at the beginning, and we take a lot of pride in being able to make you comfortable by explaining as much as necessary, taking all the time you need and making the trip very safe and fun. As you learned, Kai is excellent at putting folks at ease while sending them over the edge! We'll look forward to seeing you guys out for a full day sometime!
