Vroom across the earth's gold- and diamond-filled acne with today’s off-road Groupon: $55 for a four-hour H1 Hummer tour through two Arizona mountain ranges and desert with Stellar Adventures (a $135 value). Stellar Adventures’ exciting and information-packed Four Peaks Trail Hummer expedition takes intrepid explorers on a picturesque trail through Tonto National Forest, known, like the surface of Mars or a new pair of socks, for its rugged beauty.
Tours also treat visitors to serene views of the desert and mountain-wreathed Saguaro Lake. Your guide, an experienced naturalist, will bewitch your brain with tales of local flora and fauna while the intense off-road peregrination titillates your adrenal glands. The Southwest's breathtaking scenery and its huggable trailside woodpeckers come into sight as your Hummer growls through the rocky Four Peaks and Superstition mountain ranges. These mighty and mighty-precious pieces of Arizona beauty make postcard pictures warp in shame and abnegation; take visiting friends and family along for a ride they won't forget.
Atop that heaping pile of natural splendor, Stellar Adventures' tours include arranged pickups at your hotel or other meeting spot and snacks and beverages. Back in 1997, no other company had mustered the gumption to trek through these expanses of desert glory with glorymobiles full of eager visitors. Stellar Adventures filled that void, and today employs experienced, knowledgeable guides with a palpable, almost grandfatherly love for Arizona's terrain. Their respect for the land shows in Stellar Adventures’ commitment to sustainable touring; in 2008 the company converted its fleet to local biodiesel.
