Local Area

Horseback Riding

Hop in the saddle and ride into the heart of the majestic the Sonoran Desert. We offer trails over hilly terrain that dip down into arroyos and climb up steep embankments. Or ride on the old cavalry, outlaw and Indian trails and laugh along with the tall tales told by our cowboy wranglers.

Flatwater River Float

Raft through the desert with our professionally trained guides. They will take you for a cruise down the beautiful Rio Verde or Salt River, surrounded by rough and rugged desert mountains. The float offers mild ripples combined with spectacular desert scenery and on occasion, a glimpse of Arizona wildlife along the way.


Flowing from the mountains in Northern Arizona, the Salt River is captured by four dams and released for use by Phoenicians and farmers year-round. While kayaking on this Class 1 river you are surrounded by spectacular, unobstructed 70-mile views into four different mountain ranges.
