Canyonlands 4X4 & River Cruise $188 Adult & $178 Youth
Experience Canyonlands on a tour that takes you from mesa top to river bottom. A backcountry 4X4 trail and calm water Colorado River trip that is unmatched.
In the morning, we'll travel in comfortable four-wheel-drive vehicles through the Island in the Sky district of Canyonlands National Park. Professional guides show you the sights that many miss. Our route will take us to the famous switchbacks of Shafer Trail and along the White Rim sandstone layer. Numerous stops allow for excellent photographic opportunities.
We transfer to RHIB boats for a scenic calm water tour through the Colorado river gorge known as Meander Canyon. A riverside picnic is served below Dead Horse Point. We'll go to a natural stone alcove called the Grotto and visit a petrified forest where entire trees are exposed.
Canyonlands National Park is a showcase of geology. Layer upon layer of sedimentary rock have formed and the Colorado River carves a channel through these rock layers. This one day tour covers a lot of country and is ideal for people with limited time.
