Arches National Park Tours

Arches National Park

The Fiery Furnace, in beautiful Arches National Park, offers a labyrinth of narrow passageways and abrupt dead-ends among a series of sandstone fins.

Though it does not encompass a very large area, it is easy to become disoriented or lost. For this reason, and to protect native plants and soils, visitors must join a guided hike, or obtain a special permit, in order to enter the Fiery Furnace.

Ranger guided hikes are offered into the Fiery Furnace daily, spring through fall. These popular 2 1/2 hour hikes are moderately strenuous, requiring the use of hands and feet to scramble up and through narrow cracks and along steep ledges above drop offs.

Fiery Furnace ranger guided tours fill far in advance so early reservations are recommended. Arches National Park has implemented a pilot timed entry reservation system, which requires reservations to enter the park from April 3 – October 3, 2022. If you have Fiery Furnace reservations during this time, you will NOT need to also make a timed entry reservation to enter the park.
