Adventure Tours

The Excitement You Want, The Safety You Need.

On the ground or in the sky, adventures in Palm Desert will give you a thrill ride balanced with peace of mind.

The owners of adventure tour companies in Palm Desert have focused on revamping their operations while being closed during COVID-19. They are ready to greet you with new processes to prioritize your health. With face mask requirements for guides and guests, regularly sanitized equipment and private tour options, you can enjoy the area’s pulse-increasing fun with a worry-free attitude.

As of October 20, many of our adventure tour partners have reopened and are accepting reservations. Please check with each company’s website to understand face mask requirements and other protocols prior to booking your experience.

Hot Air Balloon Rides

Lift your spirits – literally – as you soar above Palm Desert and our neighboring Coachella Valley cities in a hot air balloon. If you’re an early riser, grab a thermos of coffee and try the sunrise ride, or for a romantic evening, take a sunset balloon tour. Either way, you’ll enjoy enchanting views of the entire Coachella Valley in an unforgettable setting. For more information, contact one of these local balloon operators:

Jeep, Hummer and ATV Tours

For a memory that will last a lifetime, book a Jeep tour – an experience that is both fun and educational. Hold on tight as you make your way through the Palm Desert and Palm Springs area’s more rugged and rocky regions in an open-air vehicle. For reservations and more information, contact one of these local adventure operators:
