Arduous journeys. Some call it hiking. We prefer to call it trekking. Where we go is not always easy. It is work, and sometimes hard work, but with many rewards. The Southwest region offers much more than what many imagine deserts to be. The diversity of flora and fauna found in this region affirm the harmony of nature. We have hikes right out our back door. We offer a diverse selection of trails that start on the hotel's property. Whether you explore on your own or contract with our guides, you will appreciate the beauty of The Sonoran Desert.

Ask us about family biking outings.

Rock climbing is only a short drive from our Tucson resort. The Santa Catalina Mountains have become a popular destination for climbers around the world.
