USA & Canada / Arizona

In Arizona’s Sonoran Desert, life moves at a laconic pace. An incomparable American experience beckons. Those in search of the authentic Wild West will revel in the heart-stopping canyons, colossal rock formations and majestic saguaro cacti of Arizona, famed for its jaw-dropping aquamarine to flame red sunsets. As the stars come out, the chuckwagon suppers and cowboy cookouts fire up… mighty steaks sizzling on the barbecue, with chilli and cornbread to augment the feast. Take the best scenic drive in the country on your way to the Grand Canyon, enjoy a personal guided tour of a Sedona winery, western artist's studio, or peruse the local art galleries. Experience the mystique of the Superstition Mountains and the legend of the Lost Dutchman's Gold Mine. Mountain passes, desert scenery, western towns, and ancient Indian ruins are all within reach for a day adventure from the Phoenix area. The southwest offers some of the best places for the active; get off the road and experience the history, culture and landscapes up close. Whether you like yoga, short hikes, long treks, mountain biking, river rafting or looking for wildlife, explore some of the best locations and trails in the southwest. Explore the numerous Pueblos and Archaeological sites, and experience the history of unique cultures in museums in the region. Visit and explore awe inspiring National Parks and monuments, and witness some of the West's most recognisable scenery — the backdrop for many Hollywood movies. The endless vistas and improbable rock formations create a mesmerizing experience.
