Spend the first half of your day riding through the Lake Mead National Recreation Area on this ATV tour from Las Vegas. Learn the history of Lake Mead, Colorado River, Hoover Dam and the mines of Eldorado Canyon. Stop at the Colorado River for a photo opportunity and a splash in the water in the summer months. Round-trip transportation and lunch are included.

What to Expect
Your tour starts with pickup from select Las Vegas hotels in an air-conditioned coach and a short drive to the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. After a safety briefing, hop on your ATV and take off along rugged desert trails. You’ll pass by Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, and the Eldorado Canyon mines, and get an firsthand look at the park’s natural beauty. Midway through the tour, cool off with a splash in the Colorado River and then ride back to your original departure point and chow down on burgers and fries. On the drive back to Las Vegas, you'll have time for a brief stop at the Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge. Enjoy a bird’s-eye view of Hoover Dam and the Colorado River from the top of the bypass bridge. Then end your tour with hotel drop-off in Las Vegas.
