  • Moonlit Guided Hike (Pima County-The Old Pueblo)-Ask for In-Season Special

    The summer heat is gone. The day is ending and you're ready for more of the southwestern flavor you can't get enough of. Join your trail guide on a hike in the moonlight! We'll leave before sunset.

  • Wake Up, Arizona! Sunrise Guided Hike in Phoenix.

    The cooler nights make for a great early morning sunrise hike. And there'll be no traffic heading to the trail head at that hour, perfect for another glass of orange juice before getting into the car.

For authentic Southwestern experiences, visit Tucson and Southern Arizona. Famous for its dramatic beauty, the Sonoran Desert covers this region with spectacular cacti - including the giant saguaro, symbol of the American Southwest. Cactus forests lead to rolling grasslands, riparian streams, hoodoo mountain ranges and evergreen sky islands.

Guest ranches, horseback rides, and cattle drives recall Old West roots. Mountain ranges in all directions offer scenic drives, hiking, and even snow skiing. The regional hub, Tucson, is Arizona’s second most-populous city with more than 580,000 residents. Tucson’s legendary winter sunshine and saguaro-and-sunset landscape have romanced visitors for decades. Its restorative climate and casual pace are a natural setting for today’s destination spas, resort hotels and championship golf courses. Tucson’s thriving visual and performing arts scene, respected galleries and museums and trend-setting restaurants reflect its vibrant multicultural heritage.
