Overview

On the outskirts of Vegas, once the neon lights fade and the sound of traffic is replaced by the rush of the wind, the Valley of Fire is a geologic wonder that’s best explored on two feet. On this Valley of Fire hiking excursion, marvel at Native American petroglyphs that are believed to be 3,000 years old, and enjoy the multihued desert scenery in Nevada’s oldest state park. Pass Lake Mead and the Moapa Indian Reservation. This small-group tour has a variable duration—depending on the difficulty of hike you choose.
  • Choose an easy, moderate, or difficult guided hike among the red rock formations and petroglyphs
  • Keep your energy up with complimentary snacks and water
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off included
  • Small-group tour limited to 13 people for a more intimate, interactive experience

Hmm...we can’t seem to find this place. Please check the spelling, or choose another location.

Pick up will be at your hotel or a hotel relatively close. You will be contacted 1-2 days before your reservation date to confirm pick up time and exact location. If you are staying at a hotel or rental home away from the strip or downtown you will be asked to go to the nearest Strip or Downtown hotel property.
Depending upon which option you choose, this Valley of Fire hiking tour either leaves Las Vegas at sunrise, or later in the day in the late morning or early afternoon. Once you meet with the rest of your group, which won’t exceed 13 people, leave the lights of Vegas behind and begin to commune with nature, as you travel out into the wide-open desert. 

Along the drive, make a stop at the Moapa Indian Reservation to pick up some fireworks, liquor, or cigarettes that are completely duty-free.

When you enter the Valley of Fire State Park, your guide explains the area’s history as well as its fascinating geology, and leads you to the trailhead of whichever hike you’ve chosen.

Over the course of the trek through the park, learn about the erosion and seismic fault lines that have created the rugged terrain, all while surrounded by a surreal landscape of enormous, deeply red rocks. For thousands of years, Native American-Indian tribes have lived and survived in this landscape, and your guide offers some fascinating insight to their legends, history, and myths, as well as point out some ancient petroglyphs that have been here for 3,000 years. 

Water and snacks are provided for the hike, and once you’ve conquered the dusty trail and soaked up the epic beauty, you have the chance to explore the Valley of Fire official visitors center. On the car ride back to Las Vegas, rest your legs and watch the scene slowly change outside the window, as the windswept desert slowly gives to the glitz, glamor, and lights.

  • "Not too hard, not too easy, about 5 hours from start to finish with the drive included." See review
  • "Would highly recommend the morning tour since it is not as hot, and there are less people at the park so you feel like you have the whole place to yourself!" See review

Sarah our tour guide went above and beyond to make sure that everyone had an incredible experience. She guided us on an easy hike but also took my teen son on more difficult climbs while we rested to make sure everyone got the best experience. This was the highlight of our trip!

Our guide was Sara, who froze bottles of water and had backpacks to use. We had a choice of two locations to hike. My friend and I will most likely do this again but will go to the other location. It was challenging but not strenuous. We thoroughly enjoyed this hiking tour.

Did the moderate morning tour with our Amazing guide Matthew! He is awesome, knowledgeable and cool! There’s only 5 people including him on the tour and he modified our tour based on our skills. It is more like a freelance hike. He took some pictures for us so we don’t have to do selfie. And he took excellent pictures too! Exceeded my expectations… provided us plenty of snacks with water and Gatorade. We bought our own hydro flask with water to keep the water cold. Memorable experience indeed!!!

If Sarah from Love Hiking isn't your tour guide then what are you even doing hiking! She is the single most amazing tour guide that I've had in my 634 years of travel! We went on the Valley of Fire tour. Our group chose the Seven Wonders Trail. I'm completely out of shape and thought we'd be taking a cute little walk past a few pretty rocks. Nah, we HIKED.... like climed..... and walked MILES.. she said it was 2.5 miles, but my feet counted 100! I honestly watched my spirit transcend into the clouds on 3 separate occasions, but I'd do it all over again if I could. She kept us occupied so I didn't notice the pain from walking. That's a plus for me because I have bilateral club feet so it's hard to walk/stand for long periods of time. This tour was nothing short of amazing. The sites, the things we learned, and Sarah's entertaining spirit really made this trip enjoyable!!!! Book this. You absolutely WON'T regret it. Bring a hat and sun screen thought..... or you might regret that part!

We booked the trip through Viator with Love Hike. Sarah the tour guide, was very knowledgeable, courteous an supportive. Sarah showed us the variable kinds of rock formations and how they were developed. The hike was moderate and the weather was good, since we started the hike early in the morning. Sarah supplied us with snacks and water throughout the trip. We were very happy with the tour guide and the rest of the group that came with us

Valley of Fire was an awesome experience; Sarah was a fantastic guide who took us on a hike that involved a bit of extra technique as we made our way thru the gorgeous red rock. I would recommend this for all those that love an outdoor adventure!

The geological formations were amazing, climbing like a mountain goat was fun and challenging. The views spectacular. I was glad to have a knowledgeable guide, not only to take us off trail into some beautiful formations, but also to explain the flora, fauna and geology. She was entertaining, attentive and focused on giving our group the experience we wanted. Glad we went early in the day, it got hot fast.
