Cruise the desert in a Hummer

Hummer Desert Tour

Experience the Arizona desert in the ultimate off road mode of transport – the mighty Hummer. Desert Storm Hummer Tours take you to the middle of the historic Goldfield Mountains in the Sonoran Desert near Scottsdale, Arizona to experience breathtaking desert landscapes, fascinating rock formations, and exciting off-road action in the military-turned-civilian high performance Hummer vehicle. At elevations of nearly 4,000 feet (1,220 metres), the tour guides will point out the desert’s flora and fauna and explain the history and geology of the area, as you four-wheel through narrow, chiselled trails. They can also teach you some survival skills such as eating cactus or catching local wildlife.

If a day tour is not adventurous enough for you, try the night-vision-assisted tour through the Sonoran desert after dark. Your will be issued with night-vision monoculars, while guides wearing military night-vision goggles drive an eight-mile desert trail without headlights, looking for coyote, bobcats, rattlesnakes and other critters. Hunting the desert floor with black Ultra-violet lights will illuminate tarantulas and scorpions, and thermal-image scopes are also passed around, allowing the eye to capture all warm-blooded wildlife within 500 feet (150 metres). Coyote, fox, great horn owl, bats, rattlesnake, tarantula, wild pig and scorpion are out there waiting to be spotted.

Cruising the matchless beauty of the Sonoran Desert in a Hummer day or night is an unforgettable experience for adventurers of any age.
