Moab: Sound and Light Show with Dinner

2. Moab: Sound and Light Show with Dinner

Begin the evening on the banks of the Colorado River, just 2 miles north of Moab, Utah. Savor a delicious cowboy-style Dutch oven dinner in a dining room overlooking the water. After dinner, climb aboard a flat-bottomed boat and begin your river adventure. A knowledgeable and entertaining guide will point out things of interest and ignite your imagination. Once darkness settles in, the formal part of the evening begins when 40,000 watts of natural light illuminate the canyon wall. Watch as lights, shadows, music, and narration make the stories of the canyon's formation, creation, and history come to life on the walls above the river - as learned from the early settlers of the area (the Catholic conquistadors, Native Americans, and Mormon pioneers). This Sound and Light Show is a not-to-be-missed unique experience and a great end to a perfect day in Moab.

Moab: Hell's Revenge 4WD Off-Road Tour by Kawasaki UTV

3. Moab: Hell's Revenge 4WD Off-Road Tour by Kawasaki UTV

Climb aboard a Kawasaki UTV (Utility Terrain Vehicle) for an adrenaline thrill on the Hell’s Revenge Trail of Moab. Drive a specialized 4WD vehicle, with the confidence of knowing you are on the trail with a professional guide. Hell's Revenge is like a slow moving roller coaster; except it’s on slickrock! Drive across petrified mountains of rock that look like sand dunes. Although known as “slickrock,” it's actually gritty like sand paper; and unlike anything else you’ve experienced before. Along the way, stop for panoramic views from the Colorado River Overlook, and see authentic dinosaur tracks. Travel in convoys of no more than 4 vehicles for a more intimate and personal experience. If you don’t want to drive, sit back and relax as the guide does the driving (maximum 3 passengers per guide). Anyone over the age of 21 can drive one of the buggies if they have a valid drivers license, and each vehicle can accommodate up to 4 people.

What people are saying about Colorado River, Utah

Thrilling, scary, exhilarating, this tour has it all! Absolutely, thoroughly enjoyed driving Hell's Revenge. I still don't understand how it's possible, but I'd do this again in a heartbeat. Jessie was a great guide as well, filled with knowledge and jokes making the tour entertaining as well as educational. Coming to Moab and NOT doing this tour is a mistake.

This travel guide service was one of only two services permitted to take us to places other guide services could not go. The views were extraordinary.

Best tour and specially with our tour guide jessy, he was awesome and very friendly Definitely will do it again

Lots of fun with some Adrenalin thrown in! Felt safe the whole time. Would recommend!
