Exciting Guided Rappelling Tour With Stunning Views
There are seemingly endless possibilities for adventure and exploration in Southern Utah, and the Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park should definitely be on your list of places to check out. At this very unique location, the winds shift the beautifully colored sand dunes upwards of 50 feet per year, creating ever-changing terrain and incredible views that are worth the trip. The best way to see the park and the sheer scale of these dynamic dunes is from above.
Introducing our rappelling adventure at Coral Pink Sand Dunes Park. It’s an exciting 1.5-2 hour long tour where our guests experience the thrill of hanging over a cliff edge with sweeping views of the sand dunes behind them. We start with a quick ride in our Lexus off-road vehicle over the sand dunes to the base of our rappelling cliff. After gearing up, we hike up the cliff to see the amazing views. From the top, your guide will teach you how to safely rappel down the cliff face. This is a perfect activity for groups, couples, families, kids over 5 years old, and even solo travelers. We have multiple rappelling stations that we encourage you to try, and we have rappels to meet everyone’s skill levels and abilities.
