We did this tour with our group of 9, the youngest kids being around 8. This area can only be done with a guide and our group took the inexpensive tour offered through the park. I heard later there were other private companies that also do tours of this area, but we thought this one was great! The Fiery Furnace... More

If you want to try to see this with a National Park Ranger, Book early. Our planning began late but, We were extremely fortunate to get a booking with Mike at Deep Desert Expeditions. I highly recommend him! The Fiery Furnace is absolutely amazing. If you have the time and good fortune to get into the Fiery Furnace, it is... More

Our guided hike included lots of great history and background as well as an opportunity to see one of the strangest formations up close and personal. The best part is that the hike is just difficult enough to keep it interesting. We got our reservations in 2 months before we arrived.

The fiery furnace is the most unusual hike I have been on. Absolutely go with a guide so you can get the most of this experience. With a guide you can go through tunnels, climb through a maze of rocks, and see wonderful arches. If you go on your own, there is a good chance of getting lost or not... More

The Fiery Furnace hike is a lot of fun. The rock formations and arches are spectacular, and the moderate rock scramble through the furnace adds a bit of a challenge! The fact that access is limited to the area make the hike more enjoyable and Ranger Leigh did a great job sharing the secrets of nature to be found in... More

We tried to do this hike once before but it was all booked up. So this time we made reservations in February for our hike in June! This is a Ranger guided hike into the slot canyons of the area of Arches National Park called Fiery Furnace. You can only go in there with a Ranger or get a permit!... More

We go with other 6 people lead by Molly - our private tour guide. WOW, it was one of most Fun, Scary, more of mentality Challenge than physical one (I am fear of height). We saw total of 18 arches (use National Park standard), squeeze through less than 1 foot of cracks; walk under the arch, jump into the cave,... More

Plan ahead for the reservation with guide. This is great for families. So much fun and lots to see. Beautiful, but try to do in spring or fall or early morning. Gets HOT.

Words can not do justice to the incredible sites, feel and experience of this hike. We did it with the Moab Adventure Center and it really did take my breath away. Climbs, tunnels, incredible views, I felt like we were in a dinosaur movie at one moment and John Wayne western the next and then back to being one with... More
