Description

Explore the lush palm oases of the Indian Canyons on this morning or afternoon 3-hour eco-tour from Palm Springs. Learn about the rich history and culture of the Cahuilla Indians as you ride a jeep their ancestral homelands with your knowledgeable guide. Take an easy 1-mile guided walk up Andreas Canyon for captivating views and see a stunning palm oasis from the rim of Palm Canyon. Relax after your desert odyssey by shopping for local crafts at a tribal trading post.

This small-group tour is limited to seven people for a more relaxed, intimate experience.

After morning or afternoon pickup from your Palm Springs hotel, travel by jeep to the Indian Canyons, a lovely collection of scenic canyons once home to the Agua Caliente band of Cahuilla Indians. Sit back and enjoy views of desert flora and fauna as your naturalist guide shares the history, culture and legends of the Cahuilla and the many amazing uses they found for desert plants.

Disembark the jeep to stretch your legs on a 1-mile walk up Andreas Canyon along a lovely stream shaded by palms. See old bedrock mortars and the sacred mound where the Cahuilla believed their creator, Mukat, lived. When you emerge above the canopy of palms, delight in stunning views of the canyon's cliff walls.

Next, ride to the rim of Palm Canyon and take photos of the largest natural palm oasis in North America. Take a short walk to a water cave that feeds the valley below in winter and spring. Throughout your tour, you will be walking on mostly even terrain -- mostly shorter walks but also the 1-mile hike.

After discovering the best of the Indian Canyons by jeep and on foot, browse the jewelry, pottery and baskets at an Indian trading post to find the perfect souvenir of your adventure. Your 3-hour tour of Indian Canyons ends with drop-off at your Palm Spring hotel.
