After a safety operations briefing on how to operate your vehicle, your experienced guide will take you through some local neighborhoods on your way to the Natural Bridge, which contains coral limestone cut by years of pounding surf. Next, you will get a chance to find some gold at the Bushiribana gold mine ruins. The Bushiribana smelter was built in 1872 by the Aruba Island Gold Mining Company to extract gold from the ore that was being mined in the nearby hills of Ceru Plat. It operated for ten years.
Afterwards, you will visit the famous Ayo Monolithic Rock Formation where you can see some ancient Indian drawings left behind by the original inhabitants of Aruba. You will then be put your driving to the test as you enter the Arikok National Park. Once you enter the Arikok National Park your off road adventure begins.
The Arikok National Park is a great place to enjoy Aruba’s dramatic landscapes. The Arikok National Park is home to rare, priceless gems that are indigenous to the island. You will be able to see such wildlife such as the Aruban burrowing owl (Shoco), Aruban rattlesnake, Aruban whiptail lizard, and Aruban parakeet (Prikishi) that call the park home.
Your last stop will take you to one of Aruba’s most popular attractions, the Natural Pool. The Natural Pool or “conchi” called “Cura di Tortuga” is a hidden pool on the windward coast surrounded by rocks and is a perfect getaway for a moment of total relaxation. The location of the pool is surrounded by some of Aruba’s most rugged terrain, so visitors truly gets the feeling of having “discovered” something when their eyes focus on the site. Diving from the rock cliffs into the protected pool of ocean water is the main reason why so many venture here off the beaten path.
You will have the opportunity to swim in the Natural Pool (if weather conditions permit) while you enjoy this spectacular attraction. After this stop, you will do some more off-roading as you head back to the starting point of the tour.

Good day, great equipment and Joe was an excellent guide. Outstanding locations. Awesome views of the island. We highly recommend this excursion. My wife and I loved it.
Couldn't ask for better! The off road adventure was as advertised. We were lucky enough to be the only couple on the tour while we noticed that other off road tours had up to 12 vehicles. Had a personalized, exhilarating and fun packed drive with a knowledgeable and attentive guide.
Great tour, our tour guide TJ was wonderful and since we got a solo tour on a Sunday morning he was like our own personal photographer, really loved our experience and now all the perfectly captured moments we have as souvenirs, would definitely do this again if we return, recommend lots of sunscreen and covering up or you will end up with some interesting tan lines and hat/sunglasses and the bandana they provide are a must for the off roading in the dust, such a fun day!
A few of the spots we stopped at I felt we spent too much time at other than that it was all good and fun
UTVs are in rough shape and need work. Just check out the plugs in the tires. One couple in our party ended up with a flat, and the spare tire put on wasn’t much better. Our UTV stalled on the main road without warning and our guide kept going....not even realizing we were having difficulty. Fortunately the couple riding behind us stopped to make sure we got it started again.
Enjoy the adventure of a lifetime on this guided Aruba UTV Tour. After a morning pickup from your hotel at 8:15am, you’ll hop behind the wheel in a top-of-the-line UTV (seats up to 2) and be on your way to adventure in this 4 hour tour.
