Overview
Desert Highlights is Moab's original canyoneering guide service. This full 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.

I'm so glad you enjoyed your time in Leprechaun Canyon with Kai! It's super important to us that we set expectations appropriately and choose a canyon that you'll enjoy. Offering exclusively private tours certainly allows us to choose the right fit for the group. We're so glad you chose Desert Highlights and we really appreciate the high recommendation!

Spectacular views and an exhilarating experience! This is a must-do in Moab! My husband and I did the full day canyoneering tour in Granary Canyon. Our guide Jake was superb! He was very friendly, knowledgeable and informative. Most of all he was very supportive and patient.
