Arizona Desert Tour by UTV
Arizona Desert Tour by UTV information and booking
Tour description provided by Viator
Explore the wild country of Arizona on a personal UTV (utility terrain vehicle) – a 4WD off-road vehicle that drives like a car and is perfect for couples or families. This tour takes you north of Phoenix to the Agua Fria River Valley at the foot of the beautiful Bradshaw Mountains, where you will enjoy an off-road adventure through rugged desert terrain.
This guided tour begins about 45 minutes north of Phoenix in the lower desert near the Agua Fria River Valley. This area, just below the Bradshaw Mountains, is perfect for off-roading. Admire gorgeous views of the colorful Arizona desert sky as you explore creek crossings and places for wash riding, as well as ghost towns and abandoned gold mines.
UTVs resemble golf carts and are perfect for rugged, off-roading adventures. They drive like cars and have safety cages surrounding all passengers for added security, making them ideal for families. All vehicles are fully automatic and have both 2- and 4-wheel drive.
You’ll be accompanied by a certified guide with a vast knowledge of the terrain, 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. See ancient Native American ruins and pass by several working and abandoned gold mines on the way up to Tip Top, an Arizona ghost town with awesome views of the surrounding valley.
