About Valley of Fire Tours

A tour through the Valley of Fire will take you on the adventure of a lifetime. Named after the deep red sandstone formations that look like they are on fire when the sun illuminates them just right, this geologic wonderland offers visitors the chance to experience unique desert scenery including deep dramatic canyons, ancient sandstone cliffs, petrified trees, and vast, unique desert landscapes that have to be seen to be believed.

You'll marvel at Atlatl Rock, a large boulder that's perched precariously on top of a sandstone outcrop, witness 3,000-year-old Moapa Native American petroglyphs carved into the rocks, and encounter striking panoramic views of spectacularly colored stones contrasted against the pastel desert background.

Valley of Fire also has abundant natural wildlife viewing opportunities. Keep your eyes peeled for bighorn sheep, lizards, snakes, coyote, kit foxes, and the rare protected desert tortoise. This unforgettable experience will leave you with lasting memories of one of the most scenic and iconic landmarks of the American West!

Valley of Fire is Nevada's first designated state park and was officially established in 1935. The park consists of approximately 40,000 acres in the Mojave Desert, about an hour north of the famous Las Vegas Strip. The park has hiking trails, campgrounds, and a Visitor Center. It gets its name from the amazing red sandstone formations that were formed 150 million years ago. Prehistoric tribes, such as the Basket Maker people and later the Anasazi Pueblo farmers, spent time here, probably hunting and gathering. There are even ancient petroglyphs located in several areas of the park!
