Pinacate Adventure


Pinacate Tours

The Pinacate Adventure brings visitors to the edge of the earth. A protected biosphere reserve since 1993, Pinacate includes over 30 square miles of volcanic fields and several large craters for you to experience. Be prepared to be “awed” by Nature’s majestic creations.

This is a 6-hour trip in our comfortable tour van. We start with a visit to Schuk Toak (sacred mountain) visitor center. There will be a short and interesting talk on the reserve, then a walk through the photographic displays.

You will hike a couple of short trails that describe the biological and geological aspects of the reserve, then watch a short and informative documentary.  Afterwards we will make our way to the Pinacate reserve itself.

There we will visit the largest crater, Elegante a jaw dropping visual site of mother nature at her finest.  A massive crater in which you can ‘tip-toe to the edge of the earth’ and witness the creator of the Sonoran desert.
We will then move on to the second-largest crater EL Colorado, where we will have a picnic lunch. A bit more hiking, then we will pile back into the van for the short trip back home.
