Amazing! 4.5/5 Expedia Guest Rating View all 3 Expedia Verified Reviews

Explore the San Andreas Fault and the world's 3rd-largest oasis on a back-road adventure into Joshua Tree National Park. View the unique vegetation and animals in the area where the Sonoran and Mojave deserts meet on this morning adventure.

Climb aboard the authentic military Hummer to start your adventure into the desert; where others have to turn back, this specialty vehicle climbs into the canyons of the San Andreas Fault. Visit Thousand Palms Oasis Preserve, the 3rd largest oasis in the world as you venture into the grove of giant California fan palms.

Then, stroll through the oasis on a 30-minute eco-walk and hear the stories and history of the Cahuilla Indians. Then, your 4x4 adventure continues along an old gold-mine trail that rises 4,000 feet (1,220 m) above the desert floor.

Before your tour concludes, travel to Eureka Peak through an area known as the largest and oldest in the park. See the Joshua trees standing as tall as 49 feet (15 m) with roots that can reach 36 feet (11 m) into the ground. During the mid-19th century, Mormon settlers named these trees, which reminded them of the biblical story where Joshua reached his hands up to the sky in prayer.
