Arches National Park contains more natural arches than
anywhere else in the world. At last count there were
over 2000 of the unique structures, carved out of the area's
soft Entrada sandstone. But on one of our tours, you'll
see so much more than just arches!
There are spires, and fins, and gigantic slabs of towering
rocks, which will amaze and awe. And then there's the Fiery Furnace (pictured below), included in all our
Grand Canyon tours,
a three hour ranger-guided hike that may just be the most
inspiring, memorable and fun walk that you ever go on.
Our guests have enjoyed their trips through the Fiery Furnace so much, we've devoted a whole page to it.
To be defined as an arch, a hole in the rock must be at least
three feet wide. The biggest arch at Arches is the
Landscape Arch which measures 306 feet, while there are
several that are in the formation stage. Delicate Arch,
Utah's best known landmark, presents a great hike of its own.
Please see our
three other sites covering this region: Bryce Canyon Tours, Bundu Bashers, Grand Canyon Transportation, and Zion Tours.
Utah's outdoor adventure capital,
Moab, is literally only ten miles from Arches. You can rent a
mountain bike and ride the Slickrock Trail, the most famous
mountain bike trail in the world, or take a rafting trip down
the nearby Colorado River. Arches Tours can make all
these arrangements for you, as well as hotel reservations,
barbeques and plane trips.
