Moonscape Overlook, Factory Butte, Bentonite Hills

Moonscape Overlook, Factory Butte, bentonite Hills
(4-5 Hours)
A private tour of two Utah hidden gems and top 10 lists of Utah destinations, Bentonite Hills, and Moonscape Overlook, popularized by Instagram and a must-do visit to Southern Utah. A knowledgeable, professional guide will drive you through the back-roads in a comfortable air conditioned and heated 4X4 SUV while talking with you about the amazing geology and history of the Capitol Reef area. Moonscape Overlook is a cliff-side viewpoint overlooking a vast and intricately detailed lunarscape unlike any other. We’ll admire the views from the top of a mesa edge, get some breathtaking photos and just take in the moment.  Your tour will continue along 4×4 roads past the iconic and inspiring Factory Butte to the Martian-like Bentonite Hills, a softly sculpted and rainbow-colored landscape comparable to the surface of Mars! A truly unique and beautiful experience. If you have a drone this is the perfect place to use it for some incredible photo opportunities. After the Bentonite Hills we’ll work our way back to the starting point, passing through the Fremont River and back to your pickup location. (This tour can be modified to see the Temples of the Sun and Moon instead of the Bentonite Hills).

This is a four-to-five-hour tour and for photographers and lovers of light it’s recommended as a sunrise tour to take advantage of the most dramatic lighting at Moonscape Overlook. If getting up early isn’t your thing we can certainly start later, 8:00 am is the usual time for morning tour departures, afternoon tours usually start at 2:00 pm. Sunrise available on request (no additional charge).
