Artemis Adventure Tours was named after Artemis, Greek goddess of the wilderness and wild animals in Greek mythology. Daughter of Zeus and twin sister of Apollo, Artemis famously asks her father to grant her ten wishes, one of them being to rule the mountains.
Like Artemis, we founded this company in the spirit of the wilderness and as a female owned entity. We are proud to share the beauty of Las Vegas and its surrounding areas with you. We look forward to showing you why we have called this outdoor paradise our home for the past twenty years, and why you will never look at "Las Vegas" the same way again.
