    Survivor guide: Sand duning around Las Vegas


    During sojourns in sunnier climes, we are often encouraged to participate in pursuits that we wouldn’t necessarily enjoy in the UK. With new experiences comes new risks, and slips, trips and falls are some of the most common types of adventure-pursuit accidents that lead to myriad injuries on holiday.

    The sand duning experience

    The stunning sand dunes in and around Las Vegas, Nevada, offer not only views and heat that you will have never experienced before, but also the ideal base for those people seeking an injection of adrenaline on their holiday.

    Whether you choose to venture out to the Nellis Dunes, which sit 15 miles to the North East of Vegas, or the Armagosa Dunes, which lies 100 miles away, either location is the perfect spot to speed off on a sand duning experience; an exhilarating and thrilling excursion of speed and excitement that you will never forget.

    The Armagosa Dunes is a playground for dune buggies, covering approximately five square miles with the highest peak reaching an astonishing 500 feet. The area is open to all vehicles, apart from a small five-acre reserved area.

    For those willing to drive that little bit further for their thrills, the surrounding mountains of the dunes offer many exciting, unique trails through the rough and tricky terrain.

    Staying safe while sand duning

    Before, during and following your excursion through the sand dunes, it is important that you follow basic health and safety guidelines to minimise the risk of falls from your buggy and other sport-related accidents.

    • Follow specified speed recommendations, suitable for the terrain
    • Wear protective gear, including a helmet
    • Only ride on buggies suitable for your weight, size and age – children and young teens should be supervised
    • Undertake sufficient induction and training sessions
    • Ride in a group
    • Improve your visibility by using a whip flag

    Minimise any motor collisions or other pursuit-related accidents, such as falls from the buggy, by carefully exploring the dunes before embarking on your adrenaline-fuelled jaunt.
