Moab is the great hub for adventure tours. Trips in the nearby Arches Park and Canyonlands Park range from half-day to week-long retreats. 

There are dozens of licensed tour operators in Moab ready to offer you great trips (tour operators are rather unavoidable for those who want to enjoy the region secrets and beauties; you will never reach some places and musts without their guiding). Just choose the type of tour operator and tour you'd like: river tour, jeep tour, mountain biking tour,local flight tour...
