When you've had your fill of casinos and clubs, get out of town on an ATV or dune buggy tour from Las Vegas to explore the surrounding landscape of off-road trails through the desert, red rocks, sand dunes, and more. Here's the rundown on your tour options.
These adventures are a great way to take a break from the crowds of the Las Vegas Strip and see more of Nevada.
Tours typically range from three to seven hours.
Most tours visit areas such as Nellis Dunes Recreation Area, Hidden Valley, Lake Mead, or Valley of Fire State Park.
The vehicles, which have a variety of names (ATV, dune buggy, UTV, RZR, mini Baja) are built to handle the rugged terrain.
ATVs seat one to two people; buggies seat one to four people.
A tour guide and safety gear such as goggles and helmets are typically included.
Hotel pickup and drop-off in Las Vegas is generally included on ATV tours.
Drivers must be at least 16 years old with a valid driver's license; those under 18 might require accompaniment by a parent or guardian.
