Death Valley Day Tour

Take a day trip to one of the hottest places on earth, in the comfort of modern living.

A place of extremes, Death Valley is the hottest and driest place in the United States, and at Badwater Basin 282 feet below sea level, the lowest point in North America. It might sound severe, and there’s no denying it is, but its otherworldly landscapes and incredible colours are out of this world, and something you can only truly grasp once you are there. Regardless of the temperatures in Death Valley National Park, this day trip from Las Vegas will ensure you are comfortable throughout your journey, offering visitors the luxury of experiencing this wonderous landscape in the comfort and safety of a modern, air-conditioned vehicle with a professional guide.

You will start your trip to Death Valley with a stop in the ghost town of Rhyolite near the entrance to the park. This long abandoned gold mining community has been used as the set for many films and documentaries and makes for an intriguing pitstop.

Then you’ll continue to the main event: Death Valley. You will feel like you are entering a strange world of endless desert, vast valleys and harshly sculpted peaks filled with wonderous plants and animals that have adapted to its unique climate over millions of years. The tour will stop by numerous scenic lookouts, including two of the main views of the valley, Hell’s Gate and Zabriskie’s Point; the colourful hills of Artists Palette, created by volcanic deposits; the salt pinnacles of Devils Golf Course; and the Salt Lake, Sand Dunes and Furnace Creek Museum. Whether you want to get out of the car and explore or stay in the comfort of the vehicle, this trip is a photographic sightseer’s dream come true, and a worthwhile opportunity to get to know this awe-inspiring national park.
