Joshua Tree Hummer Adventure from Palm Desert

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Take a wild ride through the California desert in a comfortable open-air Hummer. This 5-hour tour journeys through fabled Joshua Tree National Park. Take the back roads to the park and see the natural beauty of the area while learning about its ecosystem and history from a National Park–approved guide. Gawk at the third largest oasis in the world as well as at some of the oldest canyons on the planet, located right on the San Andreas Fault.
  • Half-day Hummer tour of Joshua Tree National Park
  • Travel on back roads off-limits to most visitors
  • Enjoy sweeping views while riding in the open-top vehicle
  • Take a nature walk in of one of the world’s largest desert oases
What to Expect
Meet your guide in Palm Desert and hop in a sturdy H1 Hummer that's perfect for exploring the rugged landscapes of Joshua Tree. Travel along the San Andreas fault while learning about the park’s ancient geologic history and scoping out some of the oldest canyons on Earth. Get out for an eco-walk at Thousand Palms Oasis, where you'll learn about the area’s history and the local Cahuilla Indians. See for yourself how the Berdoo Canyon earned the nickname “Big Game Corridor” as you venture past the point that most tours go to look for wild bighorn sheep, coyotes, and golden eagles. Inside Joshua Tree National Park, explore the enchanting desert landscape via back roads not accessible to the general public. See 1,000-year-old Joshua trees and other highlights handpicked by your guide before returning to the starting point in Palm Desert.
