What Are ATV Tours and How Do You Prepare for Them?

Americans love outdoor recreation and adventures – so much, so they spend nearly 800-billion dollars a year on outdoor trips and excursions. While many people are satisfied with spending some time outdoors fishing or camping, research shows more people want to feel transformed by their outdoor adventure. Nothing changes a person’s perspective of the world around them like up-close and thrilling ATV tours.

Read on to learn how ATV riding is a fun and exciting way for friends and family to share something new and what you can do to prepare for the experience. 

What are ATV Tours?

Let’s start with the basics. An ATV or All-Terrain Vehicle is a four-wheeler designed for one or two riders. Think of it as a dirtbike with four wheels.

Riders who take an ATV tour may choose to be the driver or a passenger on the ATV. Along the tour, you’ll see the landscape up close, and from a perspective you’d never driving along the highway. You’re also able to cover more ground and see more beautiful places than on a hike or walkabout.

What Do I Need to Do Before a Ride?

If you plan to drive an ATV during the tour, there are some basics you should know. If this is your first ride, choose a machine you can handle. Don’t opt for the biggest or most powerful ATV because you think it will be more fun. 

Review the safety guidelines for riding or driving an ATV. The ATV Safety Institute is a great resource for learning about operating an all-terrain vehicle.

Check with the tour company to learn the weather conditions for your ride. Dress in the proper gear to protect you from the cold and other elements. Bring along extra dry clothes and pack water and snacks, especially for a long tour. 

Decide what type of ride you want to experience. Is this an opportunity for your corporate team to have a bonding experience or an adventure for family and friends? ATV tours are excellent ways to make memories, including bachelor and bachelorette parties. 

Finally, choose a location that offers the experience you’re looking for. Many people visit California for its beautiful beaches or lush wilderness, but they seldom see the rugged beauty of the Lost Sierra. This alpine woodland includes towering mountain peaks, pristine glacier-carved lakes, and sweeping views and vistas beyond compare.
