Arizona’s Thrilling Adventures and Laid-Back Tours
Breathtaking beauty and unforgettable experiences await you.
Arizona’s wide-open spaces, incredible vistas and iconic natural wonders are yours to explore. Spend a day at the Grand Canyon, a magnificent national park that will take your breath away; try exciting activities such as adventure courses and whitewater rafting; and sign up for a sightseeing tour, where you’ll follow your guide to inspiring destinations. Here are a few ideas to get you started on your Arizona adventure.
Grand Canyon Excursions
The Grand Canyon, created by millions of years of erosion from the Colorado River, is an amazing sight. Witness the full beauty of the canyon when you sign up for a helicopter tour and snap some amazing photos of this wonder from above. On land, explore the canyon on a backpacking or hiking tour. Follow your guide in a day hike or multi-day trip as you explore the bottom of the Grand Canyon, the Colorado River and the Havasupai waterfalls. For an adrenaline-boosting adventure, go on a whitewater rafting trip and paddle along the Colorado river with the canyon walls towering majestically above you. No matter how you decide to explore the Grand Canyon, it’s sure to be the trip of a lifetime.
Whitewater rafting on the Colorado River
Get ready for some fun as you get in to your raft and tackle the white waters of the Salt River. Located near Phoenix, there are many rafting trips to choose from, with levels ranging from family-friendly to intermediate. Test your limits in one of many adventure courses located throughout Arizona. Climb up towers and through suspended obstacles, then zipline your way through the lush green trees and red, orange and brown layered rock. Feel the rush of the wind on your face as you jump off a tall cliff and hang-glide down to the ground with a certified instructor. This is one of the best ways to experience the breathtaking beauty of the Sonoran Desert, by soaring nearly two kilometers in the air.

One of the best way to take in Arizona’s magnificent scenery is to sign up for a tour. Try a walking tour of Sedona, where you’ll explore local sites with a knowledgeable guide. Go off-road with a Jeep tour, where you can learn about American Indian history and culture while exploring stunning landscapes. Or you can explore Arizona by horseback. Many local stables hire horses and offer tours to see rugged hills, volcanic formations, American Indian petroglyphs and Old West landmarks that can only be found in Arizona.
