Moab Helicopter Canyoneering
THE ULTIMATE EXPERIENCE
Moab Canyon Tours is proud to be THE ONLY COMPANY to offer a Moab helicopter canyoneering option, made possible through our unique partnership with Pinnacle Helicopters.
Our Moab helicopter canyoneering trips are the ultimate canyoneering experiences. By flying to and from the canyon, not only does it significantly reduce the 2.5 hour driving time by car each way, but you also get to experience the awe-inspiring desert landscape from the air. Going from the birds' eye view provided by the helicopter to the up-close intimacy of being inside an enormous yet tight, seldom-seen, incredible slot canyon is one of the most amazing experiences of a lifetime.

LITTLE BLUE JOHN
Little Blue John is considered one of the most scenic canyons in the world. It is moderately challenging, and a great canyon for both seasoned canyoneers and newcomers alike. Utilizing the swift access of a helicopter to and from Little Blue John makes this somewhat restrictive canyon straightforward, and results in an easy and painless way to complete this natural wonder in half-a-day.

FAMOUS & BEAUTIFUL
Made famous by Aron Ralston who, after 127 hours, amputated his right forearm to extricate himself from a trapped boulder to survive. For the first time ever, we now can easily take you through the exact route that he took, including the helicopter ride back to Moab. You will be flown out to see the location where he started his trip which eliminates the long drive and seemingly endless hiking. After being dropped straight into the canyon, you will encounter multiple rappels, amazing slot canyons, and even be able to see where Aron spent those fateful days of entrapment in 2003 wondering if he would be rescued or able to survive. The canyon ends with an iconic 90ft rappel into Blue John Canyon where you will hike a short distance to an awaiting helicopter to take you back to town.
