Description

Get ready for an exhilarating tour that takes you through the deserts and diverse landscapes around the greater Palm Springs area. Admire spectacular views as you drive along the colourful San Andreas Fault, where you can find fascinating geology as well as an abundance of native flora and fauna.

Meet your guide in sun-soaked Palm Desert and prepare for an exciting off-road adventure as you ride to your destination in a comfortable all-terrain vehicle. Keep an eye out as you arrive in the trails of a wilderness zone known for its spectacular rock formations created entirely by nature.

Once you reach the most colourful portion of the San Andreas Fault, marvel at the sheer rock faces, monumental geological specimens and stunning native desert plants, and keep an eye out for some local wildlife. Follow your expert guide on a walk through the middle of the magnificent rock formations, or stay in the vehicle and just admire the view. After the incredible adventure winds down, head back to your hotel.

Guide had a wealth of information. However the tour started 25 minutes late. Water was supplied but no snacks. Other than the wide-open space there were no ‘comfort ‘ stops.

A most amazing tour! Our guide, Isabel, was so knowledgeable about the geology of the area and she explained the forces of nature in a simple and a complex way...depending on questions we asked. It was a tour I’d recommend to anyone. The many locations she took us showed how the San Andreas fault is more than just a ‘line in the sand’. Highlights included: an oasis, Box Canyon 4-wheeled experience and Painted Canyon. Isabel is an excellent tour guide and her passion for geological forces came through at every bend in the road and in the hills!
