Off-Road Wildflower Adventures

Anza-Borrego Desert State Park

In a year of just the right conditions, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park comes alive in kaleidoscopic color as the wildflowers bloom. Our fun, off-road wildflower tours are sure to please the adventurous at heart, while providing a wide variety of desert flower viewing!

Wildflower season — when there are flowers — generally runs from late February through most of March. Please note, however, that when dealing with nature, nothing is a given. The right mix of rain, sunshine, temperature (and not too much wind) is needed for the flowers to thrive. We will make every attempt to show you varieties of flowers on your excursion, but we cannot make any guarantees. What we can promise is an awesome and educational time as you explore Anza-Borrego!

We offer 2.5-hour & 5-hour wildflower tours (late Feb./March). These public wildflower tours will either go out in a troop carrier, off-roading van or small military truck (seats 9 passengers). The decision is made based on capacity and availability.

Adult (13 and Up) – $150 for 5 hours OR $95 for 2.5 hours                                                                                 Child (12 and under) – $95 for 5 hours OR $75 for 2.5 hours
