Las Vegas: Horseback Riding Tour

1. Las Vegas: Horseback Riding Tour

Leave the Las Vegas slot machines and party lifestyle behind as you head off on a peaceful horse ride in the Nevada desert. Ride through Rainbow Gardens with its red rock formations that were created at the same time as the Grand Canyon. Don't worry if it's your first time on a horse or an experienced rider, this is a great way to explore the desert and feel like a cowboy for the day for beginners and experts alike. Meet your guide at a ranch in the desert and get paired with a horse to suit your skill level. Receive a short introduction from your guide on riding and learn how to mount and dismount your horse correctly.  When you feel comfortable, jump on the saddle and set off on a scenic horse ride through the desert. You can even see an inactive volcano not far from the Lake Mead area.

Lake Las Vegas: 25-Minute Flyboard Experience

2. Lake Las Vegas: 25-Minute Flyboard Experience

The Flyboard is a bolt-on device that is attached to a personal watercraft (PWC). It is designed so that the PWC follows behind the rider's trail, allowing for multiple degrees of freedom – and even the ability to go underwater. Upon arrival, take advantage of free parking at Lake Las Vegas and enjoy a quick walk through the Italian-style village. Part of Lake Mead National Park, this oasis of palm trees is just 20 miles from the Las Vegas strip. Next, meet the instructor at the marina and go over the basics. Get kitted out with a life jacket and helmet and hit the water. Safety is a priority and a knowledgeable instructor will be there every step of the way. Scared of heights? Not to worry, flights are limited to 10ft in the air. After the adventure, enjoy lunch at one of the many on-site restaurants such as Cafe Du Lac and Mimi and Coco Bistro (French), Luna Rosa (Italian), One5 Lakeside (American), and Seasons Grocery (Deli).

Charlie was a kind & knowledgeable guide. He answered all of our questions, and my granddaughter had a lot of questions! He pointed out some interesting facts and finds throughout the ride. I especially appreciated his kindness when helping me off my horse when I had a bad cramp in my leg! LoL I am so glad there is no footage of that incident! We will definitely be back! I am anxiously awaiting the photos that Charlie took of us on our horses!

We really enjoyed ourselves. It was very relaxing and the tour guide was excellent. Also the driver who picked us up and dropped us back off was very nice. I definitely recommend to anyone traveling to Vegas

I only got up in the air for about five seconds the entire time, but I had the most fun!! The instructor was thoughtful and explained the instructions thoroughly.

We had a lot of fun, the horses were in good condition and very well behaved!

We had a great time very relaxing and beautiful horses!!
