Description

Take an evening jeep tour to discover the San Andreas fault under the stars!

Leaving from Palm Desert, head to the San Andreas fault in time for sunset. Accompanied by your nature guide, tour the nature reserve by jeep over 320 hectares. Learn more about the surrounding flora and fauna and the many earthquakes that have occurred in the region (the fault is located on the junction between the Pacific and North American tectonic plates).

Stop for a walking tour of the site and discover a palm tree oasis, clefts piercing through the canyons, geological fissures and other characteristics of the region. Admire the desert sunset that enhances the orange shades of the canyons and enjoy some star-watching before returning to Palm Desert.
