Step On Tours

ATV Tours

Some years back, we started looking at the idea of providing a different sort of back road experience.

Folks liked the fun, educational format of our Jeep tours.  So we said, why not apply those same principles to All-Terrain Vehicles (aka ATV)?  Nothing fast, furious or "Dukes of Hazzard".  Just a neat, self-directed ride into the wilds of Big Bend.

So, we went out and purchased a few Polaris Sportsman 500 ATV's that seat two guests very comfortably.  Boy, are these babies fun to drive!

But take your choice. Ride with a friend or try one for yourself, but either way, you'll experience the desert in a very unique way.

Trip Details:

Where to Meet: Far Flung Outdoor Center (get directions)

Departure Times:
Summer Departures: ATV tours for the period May 15 - October 1 depart once a day at 9:00 a.m. from the Far Flung Outdoor Center.

Fall and Winter Departures: ATV tours for the period October 1 - May 14 depart twice a day (9:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.) from the Far Flung Outdoor Center.

Return Time/Trip Length (to Far Flung Outdoor Center):
3 hours

Meals and Refreshments: Iced water provided by Far Flung.

Difficulty:
This tour is a beginner to slightly intermediate ride; all guests will be required to participate in a pre-trip safety briefing.  Far Flung will provide the required helmet and eye protection gear.  Folks, this is a guided tour with the objective of showing you the Big Bend in different way.  It is not a high speed, slide around the curves, cut across the desert type of experience.  If you are looking to test the limits of an ATV, you will be sorely disappointed in this tour.   This tour travels on private land and does not enter the national park.

Age Requirements
:
You must be at least 16 years old with a valid driver's license to operate an ATV alone,  Riders must be at least 8 years of age.

Other Notes:
ATV tours are operated on private lands; due to insurance requirements, guests are not permitted to bring their own ATV.

Driver Price: $170/person (this person actually operates the ATV)
Rider Price: $85/person (this person rides behind the driver)
(Trip price does not include Texas Sales Tax at 7.75%, energy surcharge or gratuities)

A non-refundable deposit of $10/unit is required at the time of booking.  Final balances will be charged against the credit card on file 48 hours prior to departure.
