An Adventure in Phoenix Wild Outdoors

Apr 4, 2014

Spring is here and it is time to put the winter clothing back in storage and start planning the perfect outdoor trip with your loved ones. Phoenix is known for its mountainous terrains and wide open spaces that is perfect for an adventure.

Here are some suggestions about where you can charge up your adrenaline in Phoenix.


Mother Nature has blessed Phoenix AZ with a natural outdoor playground in the form of plains as well as rocky canyons. Here, you can find yourself jostling through smooth granite slots, gushing waterfalls, trekking your way around forest pools and then climbing steep cliffs all within a couple of hours.

If you intend to organize a group trip out to these rather tough terrains, we strongly recommend giving Bus Rental Phoenix a call to find out if we have the best charter bus to transport your group to these locations.

Within a single day, you might find yourself wading through pools, scrambling and then hiking through some of earth’s most special geological playground. A typical canyoneering trip out in the Phoenix AZ wilderness will take up anywhere between 8 to 12 hours. As this activity is dependent on the weather, group and private tours is openly available widely throughout April to October.

For beginners and those who are unfamiliar with Phoenix terrain, hiring a guide might be required.

Horseback riding through the Sonoran Desert

If you are used to city life and are here in Phoenix for the very first time, taking on a tour around Sonoran Desert on the back of a horse is recommended. It is the best way to learn, first hand, about the wild west the way cowboys used to trek around it. It is a great opportunity to learn more about the landscape, the desert’s very unique history and story.
