“Take this inexpensive tour through a great area of Arches”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

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 is a large area, almost maze-like with large sandstone rocks, ledges, and pinnacles. Everyone had a great time and had no difficulties scrambling over rocks and squeezing through boulders etc. The ranger was fantastic at going at a good pace for everyone on the tour and knowledgeable about the area. It never got super hot because we were often in the shade of the rocks, but you should wear sunscreen and a hat and hiking shoes. The kids loved it!

“Amazing”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 via mobile

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 a must!

“Sign Up Early for the Guided Hike”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

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.

“Must do!”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

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 being able to see everything it has to offer. The furnace has a lot of shade, so it is one of the few places in the park that you can hike mid-day. Cannot recommend highly enough - do not miss this if you are in Moab
