The Sonoran Desert tours will showcase the diverse wildlife, topography, flora and fauna. Wildlife that may be seen includes coyotes, lizards, deer, gila monster, javelina, tarantula, snakes, deer, wild burro, and free range cattle. The spring time is particularly beautiful during the desert bloom, where cacti flower in a rainbow of color.
The trips that climb in to the Bradshaw Mountains take longer and are more challenging, but provide a unique experience that make the time and effort worth while. The area is rich in history dating back thousands of years and is filled with visible evidence including Hohokam Indian ruins, limited remains of what could have been one of the most significant cities in Arizona and a number of abandoned mines.
While Jeep and UTV tours are offered by several guiding companies ATV tours are not as widely available.
The advantages of an ATV tour include the ability to be more actively involved in the experience because everyone gets to drive their own machine. The ATVs are also more narrow and are permitted access to many trails that do not allow the wider UTV and Jeeps.
While the typical UTV tour is a more passive experience an ATV tour does require some level of operating skills. For this reason we offer a two hour orientation session that combines training and a short guided tour.
