Single-Day Tours in Scottsdale/Phoenix

On a guided half-day tour with AOA in the Sonoran Desert you will learn about the colorful flora, distinctive fauna, geology and cultural history of these unique locations with our knowledgeable, professional guides as you trek, ride or float along. All of our tour locations have been chosen for their scenic beauty, accessibility, safety, and low volume of visitors.



Water Adventures

A water tour is a great way to cool off on a warm day and gain a unique perspective on the desert. You’ll spend 2-3 hours paddling on the lower Salt River or Saguaro Lake. Rafting tours are our most family-friendly and large group activity, SUP tours are the perfect combination of relaxation and exercise, and kayaking tours are great for avoiding the crowds and finding peace on the water.



Hiking & Camping Trips

Our hiking and camping tours explore the rugged wilderness and stunning landscapes of unique mountains, deserts, and forests across the American West. Whether you’re looking for comfortable camping or staying overnight in a cozy lodge, we have a multi-day hiking adventure for you!



Backpacking Trips

A guided backpacking trip is an excellent way to become acquainted with a more demanding level of outdoor adventuring or to explore a new, less-crowded and lesser-known wilderness region. AOA’s outdoor guides are highly-skilled, professional, wilderness first responder certified with all the know-how and experience to make your backpacking trip the adventure of a lifetime.



Guided Road Cycling Tours

We guide both 1/2-day road bike tours in the Scottsdale/Phoenix area and multi-day road bike tours across the Southwest. Explore the roads of southern Utah, ride through Southern Arizona’s wine country and visit Tucson, or pedal California’s legendary National Parks. On every multi-day trip we provide ride support, nutrition, logistics, and the opportunity to rent a bike from AOA’s high performance fleet.



Guided Mountain Biking Tours

Our guided half-day tours are great for all skill-levels from beginner to expert. We’ll choose the right trails for you, provide all equipment, snacks, and safety instruction and our guides will lead you out for some two-wheeled fun. If you’re looking to spend more time mountain biking in the desert, our 3-day mountain biking trip gives you more time to ride world-class singletrack with expert guides and then spend each night sitting around the campfire learning more about the incredible Sonoran Desert.



Self-Guided Trips

We operate self-guided mountain biking trips in Scottsdale and Sedona and self-guided road biking trips in Scottsdale, Napa Wine Country and Sonoma Wine Country with the same quality, style, service and comforts of our guided trips. The only difference is that with self-guided, you are the guide!



Custom Trips

We can create custom trips in Arizona, California, Colorado and Utah. You can submit a request for a custom trip proposal and give us a general outline of your adventure vision and we will work with you to create the adventure of a lifetime!
