Island in the Sky 1/2 Day Jeep Expedition in Canyonlands National Park
The Island in the Sky Half Day Jeep Expedition is an exciting family expedition through the picturesque Canyonland National Park. Venture out into one of America's finest national parks with a guided tour. Pile into an air-conditioned Jeep Rubicon as your guide takes you on a journey through the rugged twists and turns of the area known as The Island In the Sky. Breathtaking panoramic views await you from atop this high plateau that rises 2,000 feet or more above the rest of the park.
As you head out from Moab, you'll travel down a back country road that overlooks Arches National Park and make your way to Gemini Bridges, an enormous double rock arch. Once you enter Canyonlands National Park, your guide will take you on a 30-minute round trip walk to the Mesa Arch which features even more unforgettable views across the canyons.
It's not time to head back to Moab just yet though. One more stop at Dead Horse Point, one of Utah's best kept secrets, allows for even more photo taking before you descend the plateau to the Colorado River 2,000 feet below and pass by the gorgeous snow-capped La Sal Mountains. Make sure to keep your eyes peeled during the ride back, because your guide will point out prehistoric Indian writings and dinosaur tracks imprinted into the ancient rocks as you make several stops along the river.
