Adventure Sports

Ready for an adrenaline rush? Arizona offers a range of extreme sports, and off-road adventures to keep you exhilarated all day long.

Off-Road Vehicle Tours

Make Arizona your playground with off-highway vehicle tours. Popular locations include Flagstaff’s San Francisco Peaks volcanic field, where more than 400 cinder cones make for fun terrain. Meanwhile, Sedona’s four-wheel-drive vehicle tours will take you nearly straight up and down the city’s massive red rock formations. And along Arizona's West Coast, the Yuma Sand Dunes offer plenty of fun for off-road vehicles.

Rock Climbing

With challenging canyons and soaring mountains, adventure-seekers can pick from an exciting menu of rock climbing options. In Prescott, rock climbers head for the outcroppings of Watson Lake or the world-class cliffs of the Granite Mountain Wilderness Area northwest of town. In Phoenix, Camelback Mountain's distinctive silhouette dominates the city's northern skyline, beckoning rock climbers only minutes from downtown.
