Overview
Desert Highlights is Moab's original canyoneering guide service. This half day canyoneering tour visits a route that Desert Highlights' founder created as a technical guided canyoneering route in the late 1990's. Here, we explore an area that most people would not visit on their own. With the use of ropes and other technical gear, a competent guide and a sense of adventure, we are able to explore areas that are otherwise inaccessible. The Moab desert is our home and we are passionate about sharing it with others. During your guided tour, you will not only safely descend a beautiful, water-carved canyon, but you will learn about the flora and fauna, geology and history of the area that we are so lucky to call our backyard.

Amazing experience. We enjoyed every minute of it and will be back for more! Our kiddo (almost 9) loved scrambling through the canyon and it was a perfect challenge for our whole family. Melissa was amazing from getting us booked to taking us on our adventure! We will definitely

The Medival Chamber and Morning Glory rappels were amazing. Melissa our tour guide did an excellent job guiding us, teaching us, and making sure we were safe. My teenage daughter had never rappelled beforehand and Melissa did a great job making her feel at ease. It was a lot

Thank you so much for sharing your experience and for the kind words. It's always so rewarding helping folks, especially kids, face their fears and help them build confidence. Your daughter did great, and I know she felt accomplished after the rappels - a huge reason why I love my job! We hope to see you and the rest of your family out here again sometime. Thanks for coming out with us! Melissa

Thank you so much for the kind words!! Kai is an amazing guide and I'm really glad you enjoyed your time with her. We're lucky to have her on board! Thanks so much for choosing us for your canyoneering adventure. Covid has certainly presented it's challenges in the guiding industry, but we're excited to continue providing fun adventures and guiding responsibly (always, but especially during these strange times!)

Thank you for sharing your experience! We understand that putting those nerves at ease is just as important as safely navigating the canyons and rappels, so we pride ourselves in that skillset! Herb is certainly an expert :) Thank you for your kind words. We look forward to getting into more canyons with you in the future!
