Hiking the Havasu Canyon trail
Three thousand feet beneath the rim of the Grand Canyon, the five waterfalls of Havasu Canyon are a nearly impossible blue-green shade that even Crayola couldn’t hope to match. One of the most incredible outdoor adventures in the States — whether you decide to hike, ride a horse, or take a helicopter to the falls — the strenuous 8-mile trip between Hualapai Hilltop and the water forces you to earn the spectacular views that await. Once in the canyon, a dirt trail will take you over two small bridges to turquoise swimming holes and waterfalls that reach up to 200 feet high.
For at least the last 800 years, the Havasupai (“People of the Blue-Green Waters”) tribe has lived here and cared for the falls and land around them. When you visit, keep in mind that this isn’t just a tourist destination — it’s a place central to the identity of the Havasupai people.
Indoor Kart Racing
Indoor Kart racing is like no other motor sport. The karts are small, low, fast and give a whole new meaning to "handles like it is on rails". It is no surprise that every major Formula race car driver started in and trains in karts. Sitting mere inches off the ground, you 'feel' every movement, every turn. Indoor karting is not about absolute top speed, but the ability to 'carry' speed throughout the entire course. It looks rough and tumble, but in fact is an extremely 'elegant' and precise form of driving. The tight track and proximity of the karts is what makes karting so competitive. The difference between a perfect lap and a so-so one is enormous!
It’s part scenic tour, part roller coaster and all fun when your group elects to mountain bike their way across the trails of the Sonoran Desert. Your tour guides add the perfect flourish to the trip with glimpses into the storied history of this grand landscape. The trails are easy to maneuver but challenging and dynamic enough to keep everyone’s interest. The scenery is nothing short of spectacular, and will give your riders an experience they’ll remember for years to come
Geronimo’s shadow at Chiricahua National Monument
Chiricahua National Monument is a maze of volcanic rock spires in the southeastern corner of Arizona. Boulders balance on top of each other so precariously it can feel as if the laws of physics have been suspended.
Covering nearly 12,000 acres, this is where Native American warrior Geronimo and other Apaches hid and planned attacks against the invading U.S. Army. Today, the national monument is notable for hiking trails and birdwatching — look out for bald eagles and prairie falcons. For an unbeatable view, be sure to check out Massai Point.
Summit Weavers Needle
For anyone who loves legends, folklore, superstitions, mystery and a killer challenge, this hike/climb in the majestic Superstitions Mountains is the kingpin of adventures. Combining the superb beauty of Peralta Trail, stunning views from Fremont Saddle, and the pure magnificence of climbing Weavers Needle, this trip will leave you in awe.
Raft the Grand Canyon
This just may be the quintessential, All-American adventure. There is hardly an excursion that can match the raw beauty, ruggedness, excitement, and thrill that is packed into a multi-day rafting trip down the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon. Overloaded with side trips down canyons, historical markers, breathtaking landscapes, waterfalls, and rolling whitewater waves – this one should be one of the top slots on everyone’s bucket list.
Backpack to Havasu Falls
Dropping down three thousand feet below the rim of the Grand Canyon is Havasu Canyon, where you will find some of the most remarkable blue-green waterfalls smashing into emerald travertine pools, surrounded by striking red rock canyon walls. This is one awe-inspiring adventure you will want to share with good company, remember with stunning photos, and relive over and over.
Hike the West Fork Trail in Sedona
Known as one of the best hiking trails in Arizona, the West Fork Trail makes its way along a deep, narrow, forested canyon with a permanent stream bordered by dramatic red rocks. The best time to experience this hike is early fall when the leaves are exploding with colors and air temps are still warm enough that a cool dip in the stream, which averages a depth of a few inches to 4 feet, will be more than welcomed.
Hike Camelback Mountain
Probably the most popular trail in the Phoenix Valley and a must-do for any first time visitor to get a feel for AZ hiking, Camelback Mountain hosts 2 summit trails: Echo Canyon & Cholla Trail on one of Phoenix’s most prominent landmarks. Both trails gain approximately 1200 feet, offer little to no shade, and enjoy the footsteps of big crowds – but also offer escape from the surrounding city below, beautiful views, easy access and one of the most classic climbs: The Praying Monk.
