ATV & RZR Tours are the main activity for any Eldorado Canyon Group Event. Led by professional guides, whose top priority is client safety, these off-road tours provide guests with a chance to experience the southwest desert up close and personal.
Historic Eldorado Canyon is a one of a kind “must see” destination located in Southern Nevada. Mine tour guests will learn about the rich mining history of Southern Nevada, while seeing first-hand what resident miners endured while working. Additionally, guests will see vintage late 1800’s working equipment, one-of-a-kind cars, old west buildings, and a wealth of antiques in the general store.
The Eldorado Canyon ATV portion of the tour takes place on trails originally designated for mule driven ore carts. Guests will traverse mountainous terrain, gaze upon incredible cactus gardens, and witness some of the most inspired views Southern Nevada has to offer. Along the way, guides treat guests to various stops, offering a bit of history about the area, and which offer some fantastic vantage points of the Canyon.
What is the difference between an ATV and a RZR?
Our ATVs (All Terrain Vehicles) are Single Seat, Sport Quad 250’s, that accommodate 1 person. These ATVs have handlebars with throttle and brake, and clients sit “on them” as opposed to sitting “in them”.
RZRs are considered UTVs (Utility Task Vehicles) and operate quite like a traditional automobile, with steering wheels, gas and brake pedals, and bucket seats with seat belts. RZRs accommodate 2 people and have full roll cages.
How many people can go on the ATV/RZR Tours at the same time?
There is no hard and fast rule about how many people can be on the trails at the same time, but for safety reasons, we generally limit off-road tours to 20 people at a time.
Rest assured your group will be kept busy. Having so many other activities to engage our guests, we can easily accommodate larger groups, by rotating activities. Note: Further down in this document you will find examples of past group event timelines that explain the process more clearly.
The Techatticup Gold Mine portion of the tour is a unique opportunity for people to walk through an actual mine that was once the largest producing Gold Mine in Southern Nevada in the 1860’s. An interesting fact, the Techatticup Mine, as well as the Gettysburg Mine were the first mines in Nevada to be worked by white men.
In fact, many of these men were reportedly Civil War deserters. Disagreements over gold and women were common and gunfights would happen often. The Techatticup Mine had a notorious reputation for everyday feuds over ownership, management and labor disputes. Killings were an almost daily event, where even lawmen refused to enter the mine.
Despite the notorious reputation of the Techatticup Mine, this went on to become the most successful mine in the Southern Nevada, mining millions of dollars in gold, silver, copper and lead for the next 70 years. This is a hard rock mine tour that takes you to areas where you will see the actual quartz veins the gold and silver ran in. Guests are taken deep into tunnels and through the mine and into the rich history of the area. With a comfortable 70 degrees year round, this fascinating tour will show you the inner workings of the Techatticup Millsite and Savage Mine.
Undoubtedly, this Gold Mine Tour offers a unique glimpse of the harsh conditions these hearty miners endured in their quest for riches and will certainly leave a lasting impression as guests reflect on the rich, and at times infamous, history of the Southwestern United States.
In addition to the Off-Road ATV & RZR Tours, we offer numerous exciting activities for Group Events. These additional activities can be arranged as individual challenges, or can be combined into a Team Building Activity complete with Scoring and Prizes.
- Hatchet Tossing
- Spear Throwing
- Air Gun Target Shooting
- Country Band-Clogging
Since each group event is a custom event, we can’t provide hard and fast timelines, schedules or itineraries. However, we have provided some actual timelines from recent groups on this page, to give you an idea of how different groups plan their events. We can tailor YOUR Group Event to meet your activity choices, food choices, and of course your available times for your group.
