Arizona Adventure with Elegant Resorts
A gorgeous climate, sensational scenery and a big bundle of exciting activities make Arizona a number one choice for outdoor adventure. From family bike rides to helicopter trips, there’s something here for everyone. Stride out along hiking paths crisscrossing Arizona’s national parks, with guided, day-long, excursions and short, easy loops on offer. Discover unique flora and fauna along the trails of Pinnacle Peak Park, or hike up Camelback Mountain for magnificent 360-degree views of nature’s astonishing beauty, sure to fill you with that spirit of Native American adventure.
Swap boots for wheels and pedal along historic byways and picturesque valley routes. There are awesome off-road trails, too, coasting over giant grasslands and rugged desert landscapes, dotted with towering cacti. Another fabulous way to take in Arizona’s eye-popping scenery is to travel, cowboy style, on horseback. Or travel by steam on an old railroad locomotive, especially popular with children.
Go wet and wild in Arizona’s lakes and rivers – take a freshwater dip at Oak Creek, go tubing along rapids in Tonto National Forest or white-water rafting down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. Wow, what an adventure! Head underground into magical caverns draped with stalactites. Or feel the adrenaline rush as you experience a selection of extreme sports, including gliding, rock climbing and off-road tours by jeep. Celebrating something special? Then opt for a mode of travel that gives a bird’s-eye view of Arizona’s scenic grandeur – by helicopter through the Grand Canyon, including an amazing flight over the show-stopping South Rim.
From one spectacle to another, end the day stargazing alongside a professional astronomer, who’ll take you on an extraordinary journey of the star-filled desert sky. Whatever you do, wherever you go, Arizona’s treasure trove of non-stop fun and adventure promises the holiday of a lifetime!
