If you're tired of control-freak roads telling you where to drive and what to look at and how to dress, today’s deal will let you explore the off-road world for a change. For $60, you can customize your own three-hour ATV adventure at Arizona Outdoor Fun (up to a $375 value). Try the Show Up and Ride option to rev through the desert solo, or opt for a scenic guided tour if you favor more instruction. AOF features one-, two-, three-, and four-person vehicles for these two options, and only one Groupon per rental is required. You can also opt to pick up and drop off the ATV yourself for a full-day rental (up to a $145 value). Each rental comes with a ramp, and a trailer is included with two or more rentals (subject to availability).
Whip around winding trails and tight canyons and experience the Tonto National Forest the way nature intended—with blinding speed and on wheels. Rustle up a friend and conquer 30 square miles of sidewalls, scenic vistas, twisty turns, and naturally occurring Sonic the Hedgehog-like loop-de-loops.
If you’re looking for more fun facts to go with your fun, the guided tour supplements rewarding burnt rubber fumes with edu-tainment. Admire candy-colored lower desert skyscapes while an informed guide shares their knowledge about the area’s rich history, climate, and plant and wildlife. Beginning in the lower desert near the Agua Fria river valley, guided tour highlights include spectacular canyon views, visits to working and abandoned gold mines, and ancient cacti. Both three-hour packages include safety gear, fuel, water, and a snack.
This Groupon is perfect for ambitious explorers seeking the desert’s natural, mascara-free beauty. Even long-time residents can learn all kinds of Arizona arcana from their desert-savvy tour guides. Split this Groupon among a pool of friends, or load up on multiples for upcoming holiday visits from out-of-town relatives.
When making your reservation with AOF, you'll be asked to put down a security deposit on your credit depending on the type of vehicle you reserve.
Merchant Circlers gave this family-friendly activity five stars:
The ATV excursions offered by Arizona Outdoor Fun are perfect for the extreme adventurer, but they are not nearly as extreme as driving an ATV…out of an airplane! If that’s the level of extreme you need, try 2 The Max Extreme Experiences, which offers packages like the following for the truly extreme:
- How to Fight a Cactus and Win Weekend Seminar
- Creepy Old Mansion That May Be Haunted but Definitely Has Asbestos Ghost Hunt and Asbestos Removal Adventure
- Adult Father and Son Cowboy-for-a-Weekend/Awkward Adoption Confession
- How Many Organs Do You Really Need? Medical Experiment-a-Thon

Arizona Outdoor Fun
Arizona Outdoor Fun lets riders whip around winding lakes, trails, and tight canyons the way nature intended—atop landscape-chewing wheels. When not busy peddling a cache of extreme all-terrain Honda vehicles and dirt bikes, Rhino UTVs, and agile sport quads, their expert guides lead fun, scenic ATV tours around the Verde River and Bradshaw Mountains, sharing tidbits about local Native American culture, plants, fossilized cowboy hats, and wildlife. They also deal in aquatic sports with boat rentals including wakeboard boats, pontoon boats, and fishing boats, small vessels such as jet skis, and kayaks and canoes that run on man power. Master mechanics at the shop’s garage keep all vehicles ready for adventure, drawing on more than 25 years of experience to repair personal ATVs and other recreational crafts, including scooters and go-karts.
