Hop into a Toyota Land Cruiser with your expert guide and head north from Moab to the backcountry entrance of Arches National Park and avoid the crowds.
Our first stop is to see dinosaur footprints. For millions of years this area was teeming with dinosaurs.
We pass Balanced Rock, one of the most iconic features of the Park, standing a staggering 128 feet. Landscape look familiar? Indiana Jones, and Thelma and Louise have scenes shot here.
The 4X4 trail into the backcounty climbs a short but steep rock wall passing sandstone fins, towering pinnacles and tall spires known as the Marching Men. We stop at Tower Arch for an optional hike.
As you travel along the track, hear informative commentary about the geology, wildlife and history of the park.
We make another stop at Eye of the Whale for an optional hike to a seldom visited slick rock playground named Herdina Park.
After exploring the backcountry we exit past the three gossips and Park Avenue before your guide returns you to Moab.

We recently took a half day off road tour of Arches National Park, and we had a great time, The views were amazing, and our tour guide Tyler made it a lot of fun. He was extremely knowledgeable and super friendly, I highly recommend this trip.
Tony was so knowledgeable and fun to be with. We saw so much and learned so much. We would never have been able to see these things on our own and we didn’t need to fight for a parking space.
4x4 tour. Unbelievable where Toyota Land Cruiser can go. Always felt safe but it was a rough surface we were riding on. Unexistant road. Arches beautiful. Changed as sun angle changed. Excellent.
Our guide as wonderful and very knowledgeable. He was very concerned with some other people and chose to stop and help them. It was a great experience. Thank you so much.
Took the sunset NAVTEC 4x4 jeep tour of Arches National Park and it was excellent. Our Guide Tony was awesome. The information he was able to provide and the depth of his knowledge of the park was inspiring. He took us off road to places that only very few people get to see. Would recommend this tour and driver to anyone wanting to maximize their experience art the park. Definitely worth the money for this wonderful experience.
My husband and I had a fabulous 4x4 tour of Arches with Cale driving us. He was knowledgeable and considerate. Loved the trip! Navtec needs better signage on the roadway to guide visitors to their starting point. Also better office bathroom,
Super off road adventure takes you to the tower arch which requires an off road vehicle and skilled driver as it is not accessible otherwise. Great addiction to the park tour. Paul made the tour exciting and comfortable. Thanks!
Our tour was terrific! Lolly, our guide, took us to remote areas of the park where we explored arches and saw wonderful creatures such as prairie dogs, elk and a badger. Lolly is extremely knowledgeable and great fun.
My family and I took the 4x4 adventure through Arches Natonal Park with Navtek Expedition. Our guide Tony was excellent. He customized our trip to our specifications. He was very knowledgeable and loved to answer questions. This experience was once in a life time. I would highly recommend this adventure to anyone visiting Moab. Ask for Tony and hang on for the ride of your life!
Very good. I would have not see the different arches if I was going by myself. our guide name was John a very knowledgeable and very helpful. he took us to see different 6-7 arches. Must see.
We had the pleasure of having Larry as our guide. Having our 3 boys with us age 4.5 years , 13 and 16 years we chose offroading instead of the scenic route. Larry was the expert on the rough terrain and he managed to put a smile on our boys faces. He took us to places not visited frequently by tourists. He is an avid climber and took us to Towers Arch. We felt like the Arch belonged to us which felt very personal. We highly recommend this tour with Larry. It was a phenomenal experience.
Was way different than what I expected. I was expecting an up close view of the Arches sights, but instead got an expedited tour of the park and then a 4x4 adventure that my wife and kids loved, could not get them to stop laughing and giggling. Charlotte was amazing, funtabulous as my 10 great old daughter said, really interacted well with all of us and was very fun to talk with. The highlight, other than the 4x4 adventure getting there, was going to the tower arch and the hike to the base. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a different adventure, WAY off the beaten path!
We really enjoyed our tour through Arches and the back roads thru remote parts of the park. It was a lot fun. Our guide Jake was GREAT! an excellent driver and very informative. No crowds. An amazing tour where you could see points of interest you would not see on your own. Driver really good at letting us get pictures of the beautiful park. Really neat to see true dinosaur tracks captured in stone. We highly recommend this tour.
I would do this trip again at any time. In fact, I probably will. Everything was excellent including the lunch served.
After a wonderful tour of Canyonlands, we scheduled this sunset tour of Arches with the incredible tour guide, Lolly, who managed to take perfect advantage of the light to show us the Park at its optimum advantage. The photographs are exceptional. She also showed us parts of the part seen by very few, including true dinosaur tracks captured in the stone! It was another amazing tour which opened this amazing place in a way we never could have on our own.
Well worth it, especially in case you want to see all the cool sights within a short time. We were lucky to catch the eye of the whale !!!
The trip was so much fun. Our guide was experienced and knowledgeable. Would recommend this trip for family with kids too!
We had a blast! Our driver was very skilled and the terrain certainly required it. I had no idea what a 4x4 could really do. We were delighted to be able to see so many arches that we would not have been able to see on our own. The vehicle was very comfortable and we were grateful that it was enclosed as it was fairly chilly. We highly recommend this tour.
