The beautiful Sonoran Desert that lies beyond the paved roads, buildings, and homes of Scottsdale and the surrounding area is a sight to see any time of the year. Surrounded by mountains and inhabited by dozens of specials of flora and fauna the untouched parts of the area are difficult to impossible to get to by car, and even on foot. The perfect way to see what you’re not able to see by traditional means is taking ATV tours in Scottsdale through the stunning landscape.
Gather your group and join your Chief Adventurer for the experience of a lifetime. Once you’ve been briefed on ATV safety and donned the appropriate safety gear, hop on your fully automatic ATV, and hit the trails. Your two-hour trip takes you approximately 25-30 miles into untouched Sonoran Desert. You’ll cross seasonal creeks, sandy washes, and negotiate rocky slopes when you’re not speeding along flat trails. There are one-person and two-person ATVs and UTVs. The experience is for those 6 years old and up, but you must be 12 years old or older to drive an ATV, and 16 to drive a UTV. Ask about getting picked up at your accommodations or meet at the designated trailhead.
Explore the Sonoran Desert by ATV with a guided tour by 360 Adventures. They provide all the safety gear, plus bottled water and snacks while you’re out roaming the beautiful desert landscape. Available year round, tours are only available in the early morning hours during the summer months. The trip is for guests six-years-old and up, with guests over 12 years old climbing into the driver’s seat and preparing to wind through the desert, and its many natural features.
