Valley of Fire Tours

The Valley of Fire, Nevada’s oldest state park, covers 34,880 acres (14,115 hectares) of red rock formations, sandstone cliffs, dramatic canyons, and peaceful valleys. Some of the park’s most famous features include the ancient Moapa petroglyphs at Atlatl Rock and the three-mile (4.8 km) Fire Canyon hike, which shows off the colorful sandstone that gives the park its name. In addition to being one of the most popular hiking destinations near Las Vegas, the Valley of Fire also attracts picnickers, campers, and photographers.

The Basics
With some of the most stunning scenery in the Mojave Desert, the Valley of Fire State Park is a popular escape from nearby Las Vegas. While guided hikes are a popular option, visitors can also opt for photography tours, buggy or ATV tours, or a helicopter tour for a bird’s-eye view of both the Valley of Fire and the Grand Canyon West Rim. Couples planning a wedding can arrange to say their vows amid the fiery rock formations of this state park.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • This site is a must-see for outdoor enthusiasts and adventure travelers.
  • Wear comfortable shoes suitable for walking over uneven ground.
  • The park provides little shade, so don’t forget to bring sunscreen, a hat, and plenty of drinking water.
  • Most tours from Las Vegas last four to eight hours.

How to Get to the Valley of Fire
The Valley of Fire sits within the Mojave Desert, 58 miles (93 km) from the Las Vegas Strip. The most convenient way to visit is on a guided tour with transportation from your Las Vegas hotel, but you can drive yourself by taking I-35 North to the Valley of Fire/Lake Mead exit.

When to Get There
The Valley of Fire is open to day-trippers from sunrise to sunset. Those who wish to stay overnight can do so at one of two campgrounds. For hiking and other outdoor activities, the mild weather between November through March is ideal. In summer, when temperatures can top 100°F (38°C), it’s best to tour the park by air-conditioned car instead.

Things to Do Near the Valley of Fire
While you’re visiting the Valley of Fire, consider a side trip to another area attraction. Valley of Fire State Park is adjacent to Lake Mead, which has plenty of recreational options on water and land. Just northwest of the park lies the town of Overton, where it’s possible to fill upon gas, grab some food, or visit the Lost City Museum, dedicated to an ancestral Puebloan village discovered in 1924.
