Overview
Explore the historical El Dorado Canyon like never before on an exhilarating off-road adventure on an ATV or UTV from Las Vegas! All-terrain vehicles are the perfect way to tour the back canyons of this remote and long-forgotten area, plus you'll take a walking tour of the spooky Techatticup gold mine.
Highlights
  • Off-road ATV tour explores Nevada’s scenic desert landscapes
  • Historic experience: visit a mining camp turned Wild West town
  • No experience to needed for easy-to-handle, automatic ATVs
  • Convenient, door-to-door transport from Las Vegas hotels
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel in Las Vegas for transfer to an ATV base camp, where you can practice maneuvering your fully automatic 4x4, and get oriented with a short safety briefing. Open up the throttle as you steer through cactus forests, red rock formations, and mountains with Nevada’s big sky for a backdrop, and watch for wildlife at the edge of the trail. When you reach the Techatticup Mine, continue on foot through spaces where miners once dug for silver and gold, and find out why some believe that the multi-level shafts of the historic mine are haunted. Following your off-road trip through El Dorado Canyon, refuel with a picnic lunch in an old west town that grew out of a rough-and-ready mining camp, then return to Las Vegas for drop-off at your hotel.

My girlfriend booked a day out in the desert badassing around on ATVs. She already has a five star rating. The day starts early getting picked up at your hotel by the big white van. No free candy, but a lunch with some pretty good sandwiches is included. Once at the station we

I travel to Vegas often for work and for pleasure and never really venture out of the city. I had family come into town and book this excursion. I am glad they did. First of all Sherman (our guide) was fantastic. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the grounds, the history

Amazing. Chris was an excellent tour guide the whole day. His knowledge of the area and history was great. You won’t get a closer way to see the desert than ride an atv through it. There were first timers and more experienced people. Everyone was taken care of and had a great
