4 x 4 Tours—Go off-road in Moab, Utah!

Explore Moab, Utah in style and comfort with a Canyonlands by Night and Day adventurous 4X4 Tours. This tour will take you to amazing backcountry gems hidden in the desert around Moab. The half-day trip is great for families and seniors; it takes you off pavement and offers the excitement of driving around in the backcountry, but isn’t as extreme as a Hummer® Tour. The trip provides opportunities for photography and time to get out and explore the amazing sites. The 4×4 tour is done in a Jeep and can hold up four people (one in the passenger seat and three people in the back seat) in addition to the guide. If someone in your party needs more room, please let us know and we can switch to a more spacious vehicle like a Suburban or an Excursion which can seat up to eight people or you might consider purchasing the third seat to make it exclusive.

A.M. or P.M. Half Day 4X4 Tour Details

A city street becomes a country lane, then a gravel road, and finally a four-wheel drive route through the Canyonlands area and into the desert. To the east, thousand-foot cliffs reach for the sky; to the west, the Colorado River carves a canyon nearly as deep. Three hundred million years of Earth’s history are written in the multicolored, infinitely varied rock layers, and your guide will tell you about the events they record!

If you want just a taste of four-wheel drive exploration into the rugged land of Moab, Utah, this half-day expedition is the perfect choice. Bring twice the memory cards for your camera as you would expect to use—the scenery on this trip consumes them at an astonishing rate!

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4X4 trip. We had an excellent guide and he made the trip really worthwhile. He was very knowledgeable about the area.
