4X4: This is the most extreme, high energy tour that takes you to the wild beauty of Arikok National Park while the professional guides and drivers show you the beautiful sceneries. This off-road safari is the only way to access the Natural Pool and it’s refreshing crystal-clear waters.
Natural Pool: The pool was created by lava and separates the wild seas from the pool. You will get to swim and snorkel under the watchful eyes of your guide.
Baby Natural Bridge: This must-see is a great stop for photos of the North Coast! Current Baby Bridge was created by pounding waves and strong winds that slowly chiseled away the limestone cliffs along Aruba's north coast. Visit the snack bar and the gift shop for some unique souvenirs from Aruba.
Bushiribana Gold Mine Ruins: On the northern coast sits the abandoned Bushiribana gold mill that once processed ore from mines in the nearby hills during Aruba's gold rush of the nineteenth century. Stop for some stunning photos of the remains of the ruins and backdrop of windswept waves crashing high along the coastline.
Drive Along the North Coast: View stunning coves, small bays and rock formations.
Requirements and Restrictions: Minimum age – 8 years. Maximum weight – 300 lbs. Guests must be able to climb into vehicle unassisted (step up of about 18”). Must be able to navigate rough terrain unassisted. Sturdy, closed-toe shoes required. This is a very bumpy and dusty tour, so for safety reasons, it is not recommended for those with hip, back, neck, kidney problems or for those who are pregnant.

Good to Know: Wear your swimwear under your clothes. To access the Natural Pool, you need to climb down approximately 80 rough cut stone stairs with no handrail.
