    1. 9:30am Arrive Creel Office

      Please be at our Creel The 3 Amigos offices no later than 9:30am as we’ll require half an hour before the tour to show you our safety video, and you’ll need to fill out the contract and leave your passport as a deposit on the equipment while you are using it. We’ll also need a few minutes to give you the equipment operating instructions.

    2. 10:00am - 1pm Enjoy the Tour!

      As soon as you have your helmet, googles and gloves on and have heard the equipment operation instructions, you’ll set off on your guided CAN AM ATV tour. You’ll visit the Valley of the Mushrooms, Frogs, San Ignacio Mission first, then make your way across the wide open plains, dotted with trees, to the Valley of the Monks. The Monks Valley is the really coolest part of the tour and you’ll be given some time to do a bit of self-guided hiking there among the huge, monolithic rock formations.

      Afterwards, you’ll drive through the forest to Lake Arareko. Enjoy the views of the lake from above for great photos. Your return to Creel will depend on time of year, how much time is left, and who is guiding you. All our different guides have their own favorite routes to return by.

    We recommend long sleeves and sunblock on all your bits not covered to avoid sunburn. Shorts or pants are fine and we recommend some shoes with traction to do a bit hiking in the Valley of the Monks area.

    No, alcoholic beverages are not permitted on this tour, nor should you ever drink and drive anywhere, at anytime. If you seem like you have been drinking, you will not be permitted to do the tour and no refunds will be given.

    Yes, that is correct. All our CAN AM ATV’s are actual 2-seaters and since pricing is per ATV, 2 people can ride for the same, great, low price that is published here on the site.

    This was a super fun ATV tour and because it was private, we got to take our time and didn't have to deal with the noise and dust of all the people on the large group ATV tours that you see everywhere else. All the other ATV tours were also done with really cheap, rather small ATV's, whereas this tour uses 2 seater canam ATV's which made all the difference in the world to our experience. I wish I had taken a better camera with me, but thankfully the photos we took with our Iphone turned out really good.
