Small-Group Death Valley National Park Day Trip from Las Vegas

Small-Group Death Valley National Park Day Trip from Las Vegas

This Death Valley tour begins with a hotel pickup in Las Vegas followed by a 2.5-hour drive to Death Valley National Park in the Mojave Desert.

Upon arrival, visit Zabriskie Point to experience one of the park’s most famous and spectacular views — a maze of wildly eroded and vibrantly colored badlands. Then travel the scenic loop through the multi-hued hills of Artist’s Drive to the Badwater Basin, the lowest point in the Western Hemisphere at 282 feet below sea level. This surreal landscape features one of the largest protected salt flats in the world — too harsh for most plants and animals to survive in.

Also, experience the most breathtaking view in Death Valley: Dante’s Peak, a mountaintop overlook more than 5,000 feet above the desolation of the valley. Pull out the smartphone or camera to capture the incredible panoramic view. Interestingly, on a clear day, the highest point in the United States, Mount Whitney, and the lowest point in the US, the aforementioned Badwater Basin, can be seen from here.

Along the way, learn about Death Valley’s history, landscape and wildlife, plus the urban legends of ghost towns and long-abandoned gold mines.

A boxed lunch and plenty of bottled water are included.

Finally, make a brief stop at the Furnace Creek Visitor Center to browse some of the books for sale and collect a Death Valley stamp for a National Park passport, if desired.

The tour ends with a return trip to Las Vegas and a hotel drop-off.

Peter was a terrific tour guide. He clearly enjoyed leaning new information and sharing his knowledge with visitors. He was extremely patient in letting the 4 of us explore drop-off sites at our own pace. Thanks to Peter, I have a new appreciation for red, green, and yellow rock strata, gigantic salty underground aquifers, and geologic time.
