What You Can Expect

El Dorado Canyon and Gold Mine Trip

El Dorado Canyon and Gold Mine Trip

On this exciting day trip from Las Vegas you'll ride your ATV into extreme mountain terrain, surrounded by cactus forest and with towering, multicolored rock formations as a backdrop. Riding under the big open sky is an awesome experience, flanked by the Colorado River and mountain ranges leading to the Grand Canyon!

On your tour you'll be driving a late-model, 4WD ATV that's fully automatic and an absolute blast to ride. After a safety and operations orientation, beginners and experienced riders alike will be ready to hit the trail with a professional guide.

You'll also take a stroll into the pages of history with a walking tour of the Techatticcup mine. Venturing deep into this gold mine, which is rumored to be haunted, you'll visit three deep shafts and learn how the miners labored feverishly on their quest for gold.

Your meal stop in the Old West Town will also take you back in time, at the foundations of one of the original 19th-century mining camps. Enjoy a picnic lunch under the covered pavilion while you hear the sound of the natural spring which attracts big horn sheep and a variety of desert wildlife. Look closely and you might see creatures that otherwise blend into the natural landscape of the desert.

Awesome fun !! The ATV ride was fun. It was good for beginners, maybe not as aggressive a drive as I would have liked as an experienced rider, but the views were great, and was still fun, the guide made sure to keep everyone together . The tour guide was great, pointed out lots of interesting facts, very knowledgeable. The gold mine tour was amazing, very interesting, it was a definite highlight. Also, loved the ghost town house and all the cool old stuff to look at. I would recommend this for anyone looking for a real adventure outside of Vegas. This was my favorite part of our Vegas trip.
