Know More about this tour

Thrill lovers, discover the beauty of Aruba’s northern coast on unconventional transport, the all-terrain vehicle (ATV). After hotel pickup you’ll be provided with a safety briefing and outfitted with the equipment needed for your ATV adventure. All passengers will ride Honda Ranchers 420cc's.

Your 4-hour ride (round-trip) begins by following your guide up a winding road lined with white crosses. Arrive at beachside Alto Vista Chapel, bright yellow and meticulously maintained, built on the hilltop site of the island’s first Catholic church constructed in 1750. While learning about the chapel’s history, take out your camera and capture the chapel, sparkling Caribbean and flawless blue sky in one shot.

Head to the nearby wish garden, where you’ll see hundreds of stone pyramids dotting a shoreline. Need a wish granted? Add to the field of dreams and build your own devotional tower.

Continue on to the partial-stone wall ruins of Bushiribana, and learn about the abandoned mill that smelt three million pounds of gold during Aruba’s gold rush in the 19th century.

After another jaw-jarring drive, arrive at a natural pool of ocean water, referred to as ‘conchi’ or ‘Cura di Tortuga,’ once the home of sea turtles. If the tide is calm enough, jump into the basin surrounded by craggy outcrops and wash off your dust-covered body, while minding the waves of the Caribbean dancing just on the other side of the rocky barrier. Get a kick out of the colorful fish sharing the pool with you.

After a pleasant and leisurely swim in the natural pool, follow your guide back to where you started. Drop off the ATV and enjoy the return trip to your hotel.

  • This was an awesome ride. The company was excellent. The company will pick you up and take you back to your hotel. I really wouldn't recommend this for beginners . I had never been on a ATV and it is very easy to learn the bike but it's the trail that is very challenging. It is very rocky. The natural pool was beautiful but it takes 83 steps down to get to the pool. After riding to the pool I was too tired to go down 83 steps but my kids did. my husband and i are 71 and 79 so our age may have had something to do with us riding the trail. It is perfect for thrill seekers. Our kills loved it.

  • The description of this excursions is deceptive, I highly doubt they’ll post this. First of all if you’ve never driven an ATV on your own I wouldn’t recommend letting this company kini kini be your introduction. Our tour leader was not accommodating at all to beginners . At one point we asked him if he could slow down a bit his response was he didn’t want to slow down because the vehicle would go empty… I find that hard to believe, I’m not asking for stop and go, I’m asking for a slight slow down on these dangerous, extremely rocky mountain roads in a vehicle I’VE NEVER DRIVEN AND IN A COUNTRY I’M NOT FAMILIAR WITH! At one point I am completely annoyed so I stop, the guide comes back and he takes over the control on my ATV, only then he FINALLY slowed down, mind you he was still pressuring me to speed up… which I ignored…. You can’t force people to be reckless. In a terrains we encountered and since we drive in the actual streets of Aruba during traffic, I would recommend that kini kini have two guides on these group tours, one in the front and one in the back. I also believe it would be important be more transparent about how the road conditions are and how the “natural pool”, actually is. If you’re not a swimmer the natural pool is a bust, especially when we went the waves were stronger than what was described (I have actual video, the natural pool is not as calm as they try to paint it). The walk to the natural pool was no walk in the park. It’s not an impossible walk but the rocks and steep steps makes it a little challenging to walk up quickly. This excursion was a disappointment to me as a beginner with an impatient guide who was more concerned about speeding with others in the group who are more experienced. If you can’t accommodate everyone’s level of experience in the tour separate the groups based on experience level with ATVs. I was treated like an inconvenience instead of a paying human customer, won’t be using kini kini again. On a plus note the view throughout the route was nice.

  • Awesome excursion but not for the faint of heart. The guides were very helpful and professional but I would not recommend if this is your first time riding an ATV as the terrain can be very challenging. If you have the courage please go because the trip is awesome. I would definitely go again!

  • This tour was beyond amazing! Pancho was a great guide! He took us to several wonderful places to take great photos. I will say that this is definitely not a beginner's tour. My poor elderly parents took it like a champ, but definitely a little above what they had in mind. The terrain was VERY rough and bumpy, but very adventurous and challenging. The Natural Pool was amazing. It was refreshing, gorgeous and had great fish, so glad that we brought snorkel gear along. A towel is recommended since you will be swimming. Some of the roundabouts on the way home were a little sketchy, but Pancho handled them with us like a champ. I definitely recommend this tour and company!!

  • We got to the van on time and was driven to the office. When we were ready to leave, the manager came out and said there was some mix up and they had to go back to pick up another couple. We were told if we could not dominate our machines we would not be successful at our ride. We were repeatedly told we needed to hurry up because we had to beat the sun down. The entire trip was rushed and not meant for beginners. It put a lot of stress on our family because of the rushing. The natural pool was beautiful but we were so rushed, we didn't enjoy this stop on our trip at all. The guide was aggressive and pushy. The tour would have been fun with another guide from another company. As a matter of fact, I got stuck and a guide from a different company came and helped me out. Don't use this company.

  • We booked this trip just before our cruise. It was an excursion not offered by Carnival. the ship was a little late getting into port and the herd of people wanting to get off caused us to be late for the pick up. I spoke with the attendant at the help desk and she called and had them come back to pick us up. We very much appreciated that they came back to get us. The atv's are big and fairly comfortable especially if you are a passanger. Once off of the paved roads it gets real!! Not for the faint of heart as we are riding over boulders, rocks and ruts. The coastline is beautiful and we would have liked to have spent more time at some of the natural areas. We felt a bit rushed probably because we were late off the ship. The natural pool area is wonderful, but be sure you can walk down and up many stone steps. Would recommend this trip for those who are up for it. We did enjoy it!

  • This was an awesome tour! I was picked up right on time, and although we got a little lost trying to find the next pick up we were taken to the HQ and quickly got on the ATV's to start our tour. Pancho was our guide and he was great - really looked after everyone and was very patient with those who were not confident. All locations were great - highly recommend this company!!

  • Fun!! Beautiful views. Great guides!

  • My husband and I had an amazing time on this excursion. It was definitely one of the highlights of our honeymoon. The team was extremely friendly and helpful throughout the entire day. Riding through the streets of Aruba on the way to Arikok National Park was such a thrill! They provided cold water and helmets with clear eye shields to protect your face from the dust and dirt. This tour is a great way to explore the entire island of Aruba. The ocean views, beautiful rock formations, and cactus covered desert terrain are breathtaking. Swimming in the natural pool was a great way to cool off halfway through the trip. The water was crystal clear and so much fun to swim in for 30 minutes! We highly recommend this excursion!!

  • Our tour guide Alex was so welcoming and patient with us. It was another couple with us and we were all able to stay together. Alex took us to all the listed places and we had time to take a swim in the natural pool which was Amazing!
