Moab: Guided Full Moon Hike

1. Moab: Guided Full Moon Hike

On this full moon hike, admire the landscape and unique rock formations, illuminated by the glow of the moon. Gaze up to the sky as your guide points out satellites, planets, and constellations. When the full moon comes around each month, it provides enough light to read a newspaper near midnight. The canyons and arches take on a mysterious white glow as the landscape is illuminated in a different way. This easy to moderate hike provides a great opportunity to admire the stars. As you look up at the night sky, your guide, with the help of a laser pointer, will show you the different satellites, planets, and constellations that can be seen at this time.

Upheaval Dome can be seen at its northern end, the confluence of the two rivers form the district’s southernmost point.  Then, continue to Needles District, the most fanciful and colorful portions of Canyonlands. Pink and white bands can be seen in its many spires and cliffs. It is the home of some of the most remote and famous arches of canyon country.

What people are saying about Angel Arch

Probably the best way to see Canyonlands National Park. Since there are very few roads in the park. Dan the pilot is not only a superb pilot (both me wife and I are pilots) but also very knowledgeable about the area and points out the various features of the park. The airplane we used is really suitable for sightseeing. Large windows and a low cruising speed allows lingering over the park. The only negative would be the lack of leg room. If the plane has lots of empty seats on the flight I would ask if I could sit in the first row aft of the door because of the increased legroom. That request might be denied by the pilot because of weight and balance issues but I would ask. All in all a great experience. I would love to go again.

Tyler was a great guide. He was very knowledgeable of both the landscape and the astronomy. Our safety was his top priority and he paid attention to each of the participants attending to our needs. My wife has some limitations due to arthritis and he made sure she was comfortable, safe and satisficed with the experience. And she had a very enjoyable excursion, me too :-).

Was a great day! Got to see a lot of the Canyonlands and Arches National Park. Tristin was our guide and he was very knowledgeable and kept us on schedule so we could get the most out of our excursion. We were lucky to avoid the crowds by going into the parks via less known entrances, which made the sight seeing more enjoyable. Highly recommend this adventure ☺️

Dave was prepared, friendly & knowledgeable. Great experience!

We saw views many are unable to see because we were off road.
