Hotel Pickup From the Las Vegas Strip

Your maverick adventure begins with an early pickup at your hotel on the Strip. A friendly driver will collect you and your small group of fellow travelers to take you on a comfortable 45-minute drive to a private ranch in the desert just north of Las Vegas. You'll arrive in time to start your ride in the early morning light.

Let us know where you're staying when you book and we'll reach out to confirm your pick-up time. If your hotel isn't on the Strip or the pick-up list, we'll suggest a convenient nearby location for you to join the tour from.

Scenic Desert Trail Ride

After the small team of professional ranch hands have matched you with your perfect horse and found you the right helmet, you'll saddle up and embark on a trail ride through part of the Mojave Desert. These trusty horses know the way even without your friendly wrangler guide leading them, and their calm and easy nature makes the ride relaxing and simple, even for a complete beginner. If you love a morning adventure, you'll appreciate hitting the trail early just as the cowboys of the American West used to do each day.

On your ride, you'll enjoy the peaceful serenity of the majestic mountain views—and maybe even wild animals. Just follow the lead of your wrangler who knows every inch of the area you'll be riding in. After around 1.5 hours, the trail will eventually lead you back to the ranch where the chef will be preparing a feast.

Western-Style Breakfast

After building up your appetite riding through the deserts of Nevada, enjoy a hearty spread of western-style breakfast food, designed to power you through the rest of your day. With coffee, eggs, bacon, pancakes, and more, you certainly won't be hungry for a while!

This morning experience is truly incredible!! I would have never known about this if I hadn't found this tour, but I'm so glad I found it! It's less than an hour away from the Strip, you get to see scenes you wouldn't normally see if you weren't on horseback, AND they cook you breakfast!!z If you haven't written a horse before, you can still go! It's a super easy trail and guides ride with you. Also, you're back on the Strip by 11 am at the latest!! You still have the whole entire day for sightseeing! So fun, definitely do it!!
