Explore the historical El Dorado Canyon like never before on an exhilarating off-road ATV excursion 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 Techatticcup gold mine.

  • Choice of several departures throughout the day
  • Free snacks included
  • All taxes, fuel surcharges and service fees included
  • Free hotel pickup and drop-off included
  • All necessary equipment included

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 fully automatic, easy-to-handle, Polaris Aces ATV that's 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.

This was a birthday present from my wife and what a great one it was! We got to ride our ATVS for hours and enjoyed lunch in what feels like an old west ghost town! There were some great antiques around the property and plenty of photo opportunities! Our guide Chad was the best guide I’ve had on a tour; providing loads of history lessons throughout the day & tailoring the tour to our groups needs/wants! Remember to bring cash for the gift shop and to tip your guide as this trip was definitely worth every penny spent!

This was a great day in the desert! After being picked up from our hotel, we drove approximately 30 minutes to get to our ATV’s near Techatticcup mine. Once there we had some time to look around at all the old stuff & peruse the gift shop. I had no idea 3000 Miles to Graceland was filmed there! We then rode our ATV’s a little over 2 hours on rough terrain. Our guide Chad was great at giving us breaks when riding and giving us a lot of history lessons! After lunch, we took the gold mine tour where again our guide Chad gave us a plethora of information! Highly recommend this tour to anyone who likes history, the old west, and who likes to go fast!
