Full description

Embark on a guided day tour of the famous Sonoran desert, off-roading in your single-passenger or 4-person ATV on some of the best trails in the stunning Bradshaw Mountains, located just north of Phoenix.

Travel through giant Saguaro cacti, deep canyons carved by flash flooding rains, and cross the Aqua Fria River to experience the wild and vast desert terrain. Spot desert wildlife such as coyotes, bobcats, deer, rabbits, quail, and even rattlesnakes.

Start your tour 45 minutes north of Phoenix in the Sonoran desert near the Agua Fria River Valley. Ride along creek crossings and soak up the gorgeous views of the Arizona landscape. 

Accompanied by a certified guide, learn about the plant life, wildlife, history, and climate of the area. Hear stories about the Native Americans who once farmed, hunted, survived, and evolved in this unforgiving desert.

What a great, fun experience. Sam was a great guide. He was funny, informative, remembered names and just made it a fun outing. The UTVs were in great working order and the trails were fun, some challenging, but completely safe. It was a great experience and a great value. Highly recommend!

I had the best time ever. For this to be my first time riding an ATV, I loved the thrill of driving through dirt, getting muddy, riding with others, and going up and down on hills. It is worth every penny. If you're traveling solo, make sure you ask the instructor the estimated end time so you're able schedule a Lyft or Uber ahead time. You don't want to get stuck like I did lmao.

Great trip through the desert. Not cheap, but then, again, how many of us have our own UTV that we can drive through the desert. We took the group tour and started a few minutes late due to the late arrival of a large bridal shower, but the staff kept us entertained and well hydrated while waiting and throughout the tour. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting the area or unfamiliar with the desert environment.
