Arizona Active & Adventure Tours

There’s something special about the landscapes of the Southwest. They’re otherworldly, and if they look familiar, don’t be surprised—from sandstone arches to the meandering banks of the Colorado River, Hollywood and the Southwest have a long relationship. Some of the most iconic vistas we visit on our Arizona tours include the Grand Canyon, the red rocks of Sedona and the cacti and rolling hills of the Saguaro desert—but even in the most modest state park or back road, the iconic aesthetic of the region shines through. 

On our Arizona tours, we discover the most beautiful sights of this stunning region, from vibrant green riverside oases under deep swirling canyon walls colored in countless shades of red to rock formations of maroon sandstone. Lace up your hiking shoes or climb atop your bike and venture across canyons, buttes, mesas and summits, then dine on delicious southwestern cuisine before gazing up at the unrivaled blanket of stars across the desert sky. 

Backroads has a long history in the Southwest, from our very first trips led by founder Tom Hale in the deserts of southeastern California. Our Arizona tours capture the best landscapes, cuisines and cultures of this one-of-a-kind region. Are you ready for an adventure?
