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.

Jeff was a great guide. The UTVs were a fun family activity for us and two teenagers, even in the heavy rain. It was more of a mudding event with all of the rain, so dress appropriately if raining! I would definitely consider doing again. We had a blast!

It was very well-run. Our guide, Charlie, was great, safe and knowledgable about the dessert. The only thing I have to mention was that the tour did end 30 minutes early. After getting out to a bit of a late start, that was a little unfortunate but still money well spent.
