There’s nothing like learning about a subject by getting up close and personal. Students can embark on a thrilling adventure full of hands-on history lessons while experiencing the unique spirit of Sedona, the Grand Canyon and Las Vegas with Pink Adventure Tours! Learn how their off-road adventures connect students with nature.
The importance of letting students get outside and explore the world they live in is imperative. Pink Adventure Tours has been providing adventurers with premier off-roading experiences and a deeper understanding of their role in the natural world since 1960. Whether students are seeking an up-close look at Sedona’s red rocks, unrivaled insight into the Grand Canyon or the best way to explore Las Vegas, they’ll find it here.
Certified guides offer students insights into history and the nature around them while also prioritizing student safety utilizing vehicles including the Jeep® Wrangler, the Tour Trekker, the Mercedes Benz Sprinter and the Ford Transit. Student groups can even stop along their adventure to have a picnic with a stellar view!
Some popular tours:
Broken Arrow | Sedona
Trek across the red rocks surrounded by juniper and cypress trees, on a trail only Pink Adventure Tours is permitted to use. It’s not hard to see why this is the most popular tour offered: It’s the original adventure that started the company. After a quick overview from their skilled guides, students will climb aboard an open-air Pink® Jeep® Wrangler that’s custom-built to safely tackle the rugged desert terrain with ease.
They’ll enjoy a short drive through town while Certified Interpretive Guides dive into Sedona’s rich past. Some of Hollywood’s most beloved Westerns were filmed here, including Jimmy Stewart’s aptly named Broken Arrow filmed in 1950. Students will enjoy majestic photo ops at Coconino National Forest, The Road of No Return and more.
Grand Entrance Sunset | Grand Canyon
Exploring this national landmark is more fun than ever! Students will be able to see the gorgeous views along the rim, feel the breeze, hear the birds, and smell the pines on their journey to scenic viewpoints as Certified Interpretive Guides provide a wealth of knowledge about all aspects of the canyon, from geology and botany to infamous myths and legends.
They’ll stop at Grandview Point to see an area that was once mined for copper, but eventually gave way to a new industry: tourism. The tour also gives students a stellar view of a Grand Canyon sunset—a sight not to be missed.
Hoover Dam | Las Vegas
On this tour, students will embark in a Pink Adventure Tour Trekker vehicle on an unforgettable journey exploring Hoover Dam, a tribute to U.S. ingenuity and engineering during a time of adversity and hardship. Students will see Lake Mead—the country’s largest man-made reservoir—and historic Boulder City, built to house dam workers. A visit to the Boulder Dam Museum inside the Boulder Dam Hotel gives an up-close look at the Hoover Dam story. Students can then even walk along the dam itself!
