Moab Canyoneering Adventure Tours

Canyoneering involves descending down beautiful, narrow earthen corridors to uncover the secrets they contain. Exploring these canyons uses a mix of down-climbing, hiking, rappelling and the occasional swim or wade if the route passes through water-filled potholes. The canyons of Moab are the perfect place to learn the sport, expand your skills and also introduce your kids to these wonders of the Utah desert.

Moab Cliffs & Canyons offers a variety of trips including ½ day, ¾ day, full day and multi-day guided canyoneering tours through some of the most fascinating landscapes in the world. Our professional instructors will introduce or review the fundamentals of canyoneering then adapt the tour to match your skills and fitness level.

So don’t worry if you have no prior experience, we will give you an introduction to the basic rappelling, climbing and rope skills you’ll require for the trip. We also offer canyoneering courses for those interested in becoming proficient canyoneers.
