Eco-Tours with Arizona Outback Adventures

Arizona’s premier outdoor tour operator offers some of the best adventures in the state, including guided hiking and biking treks, and multiday adventures to the Grand Canyon and Superstition Mountains.

Horseback Riding with Windwalker Expeditions

Horseback Riding with Windwalker Expeditions

Blame it on Hollywood Westerns. There’s something about the desert that demands exploration from the back of a horse. Windwalker Expeditions can help you live out those Zane Grey fantasies with private, guided trail rides through the desert in Cave Creek. Beginners can even get lessons on the trail.

Night Lights on the Desert Tour at Taliesin West

Night Lights on the Desert Tour at Taliesin West

Frank Lloyd Wright’s winter residence in Scottsdale is a masterpiece of desert design. For a more intimate look at the home and architectural school, reserve a spot on the two-hour Night Lights, which highlights Wright’s private living quarters, as well as complex’s offices, theater, cabaret and fire-breathing dragon sculpture.

Off-Road with Desert Wolf Tours in New River

Off-Road with Desert Wolf Tours in New River

This is the next level in Jeep safaris. Desert Wolf uses military vehicles for guided tours of the desert. If you’re feeling adventurous, drive your own Tomkat, a golf cart-sized, off-road vehicle originally developed for the Israeli military. They’ll take you over rocky terrain and through desert washes. And be sure to ask about their evening tours.
