Southwest National Parks Tour
TOUR THE GEOLOGY OF COLORADO TO CANYONLANDS
Fly east from Moab to the famous canyons of Gateway, Colorado. On the way, see the beautiful Colorado River and side canyons including Grandstaff Canyon, Morning Glory Arch, Castle Valley, and Professor Valleys. Next, you will see the Fisher Towers and excellent exposures of the Paradox Formation—the key to understanding Moab’s unique geology. Swinging over to the Dolores River Canyon, you will enjoy the cliffs, canyons, and mesas that have been home to generations of ancient and modern Native Americans. Approaching the La Sal Mountains, you will get a great view of the changes in vegetation as we go up in elevation and distant views of the San Juan Mountains in Colorado. Heading back towards canyon country, you’ll get a bird’s eye view of the Mi Vida uranium mine and then onto Canyonlands National Park overflying the Needles District, the Confluence, and the Island in the Sky.
Capture the moments with stunning aerial photography, and experience Moab in a way that you will never forget. There is no other way to visit Utah and Colorado’s unique landscape so comprehensively and comfortably. This special Redtail Air tour provides an excellent opportunity for a truly memorable and awe-inspiring experience.
You can also see some of these landmarks on our condensed Canyonlands National Park tour or the combo Canyonlands & Arches National Park tour. Redtail’s airplane and helicopter tours of the Southwest’s national parks can’t be beat!
