It is no surprise that the Park National of the Arches (Arches National Park) is one of the largest national parks in the United States. The park contains a protected area of 73,234 hectares, covered with incredible rocks of exotic pigmentation of different shapes, especially arches. The protected area has the largest proliferation of arches in the world, with more than 2,000 arches being catalogued.

The ideal point to discover this exotic park is the city of moab in Utah. To the north, in the visitor center, you can walk along the comfortable Scenic Drive, which crosses the most evocative places in the park.

Attractions are seen everywhere in the park from different perspectives. Among the geological wonders, three represent the park: Landscape Arch, characterized in almost 90 meters between one end and the other and with a thickness of only 60 centimeters at its narrowest point; Delicate Arch, with its elegant silhouette overlooking an imposing rocky amphitheater and Double Arch, famous for being used as a background in the movie Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

The best way to explore the park is with 4×4 cars, but many people end up doing hiking trails, touring the areas on horseback and even flying over in helicopters and small planes.

To get to Moab, you can go to Denver, Salt Lake City or Las Vegas airports and rent a car from there. The small town has hotels, motels, bungalows and campsites with attractive prices. Entrance to the park costs US$5 or US$10 for cars. To camp inside the park, you pay a fee of US$20 per night.
