Description
This half day tour of the Canyonlands National Park allows you to have a good time while seeing the sights that have been here for millions of years. You might have a chance to get the best pictures of your life, and you must use the tour as a chance to see much of the park. You are brought back after half a day so you can do your own exploring, but you have learned a lot in that time.

The half day tour of Canyonlands is a nice way for you to see the best of this park, and you get many good pictures. There is a tour guide who walks you through the whole location, and they give you any idea of the history of the area. This was not a park at one time, adn you must learn how it became this way.

The Canyonlands half day tour is easy to walk because you are not moving at a fast pace, and you must look into the history of the park before coming. You might have some pointed questions to ask the guide, and you must see if they can show you the sights you found online.

The Canyonlands half day tour is a great time for you and the family, and you can take some amazing pictures along the way. You find out about history of the west, and you are returned in time to do your own exploring.

The Canyonlands half day tour is perfect for people who do not want to hike too much but still want to see the best of what the west has to offer.
Make your own way to central Moab where your guide meets you in a 4WD vehicle. Travel about 30 miles (48 km) to reach the Island in the Sky district of Canyonlands National Park, an accessible section of the park that provides great examples of the region's spectacular beauty.

Begin high atop the mesa and marvel at the scenery as your guide expertly maneuvers your vehicle down the steep switchbacks of the Shafer Trail to reach the Colorado River corridor below. Along this portion of the 100-mile (161-km) White Rim Road loop, your guide makes frequent stops to take in sights such as Gooseneck Overlook, Thelma and Louise point and Musselman Arch.

Along with the more famous lookouts, your guide points out lesser-known features in the national park and the Colorado River below. Visit sites where the beautiful rock art of the ancestral Pueblo people can be seen in the canyons, and learn from your guide about the ancient Pueblos who lived in the present-day Four Corners area.

Throughout the day, your guide shares informative commentary about the incredible geology of the region as well as its human history and wildlife. Most of the viewpoints have short trails that offer different perspectives, but overall this half-day trip does not include much hiking. Depending on the timing of the tour you choose, you see the colorful red rock canyons glow in the morning, afternoon or evening light.

At the end of your 4-hour tour, your guide returns you to your starting point in central Moab.
