Overview
Our rigorous Sonoran Desert Jeep Tour is a low-speed, bumpy sightseeing tour of the incredible Sonoran desert via the Tonto National Forest. Learn about the Sonoran desert flora and fauna on the most scenic trails in the Scottsdale area. Your daytime departure will trek through spectacular desert trails leading to the Verde River, where guests sometimes catch a glimpse of our roaming wild horse population. Primary vehicles used: Open-air Jeep Wrangler Unlimited & Jeep YJ. We put the doors and tops on during very hot, cold, or wet conditions to ensure a comfortable tour. We also offer a Sunset Sonoran Desert Jeep Tour and an Extreme Off-Road Excursion, which can be booked as separate activities. Off-Road Jeep Adventures is a commercial special recreation permit-holder through the U.S. Department of Agriculture: Cave Creek Ranger District and the U.S. Department of the Interior: Bureau of Land Management.
