ATV / Valley of Fire - Review

  1. Hi All!

    Sorry for the delay, but I just wanted to post a brief report regarding our sidetrip on the Valley of Fire ATV Adventure.

    The bottom line: if you want to spend a couple of hours on an ATV treking through the desert... go for it! If you want to actually see the desert/take in the sites... don't!

    It's not that we didn't have a good time... just that we would have preferred to actually go a little slower and be able to take in more of the sites. I guess whizzing by at 25 mph just isn't our thing... "no real time to appreciate the beauty" (as my wife put it)!

    Hope that helps!

    Trips to Las Vegas:
    I'm actually considering renting a car and doing the trip on my own. Do you think this would be an OK option (aside from it being 100+ in June when I'll be there)? I'd like to get out of the car and explore somewhat too.

    Trips to Las Vegas:
    By all means, visit the Valley of Fire. I went in March with a friend that lives out in AZ just an hour from Vegas and they were even impressed. The sites are awsome. You will want to plan to spend atleast 4 or 5 hours if you want to take things in. We had about 3 hours and that was not near enough, on top of the fact I was in major pain from walking to much in Vegas.

    Make sure you take plenty of water and any food you want. We stopped at a gas station on the road that leads to the Valley, right off of I15 (I think it was the only store between the highway and VOF) and I got me a single pop and my friends each got 1lt of water. I ended up dry as can be, and they had water, and I was stealing it from them, LOL. There is not a place that we found at the Valley of Fire to buy this stuff. At the little museum of whatever it is, they have a spicket you can get some water from, but even in the 80-90 degree weather, it was far from cold and it did not taste to good (they did say it was safe to drink).

    Feel free to go to www.photocentral.us and click on photos and then user gallerys, look for Steve and click on it and you can see some photos from the trip including the strip, valley of fire (VOF) and RedRock.

    Tour Operator

    Was Valley of Fire ATV Adventure the name of the tour operator? What was the cost? Was it guided or were you on your own?

    This sounds like alot of fun for my next "guys trip." ATV's in the morning, machine guns in the afternoon, booze and gambling all night. Yeah, that sounds about right!
