Aravaipa Canyon is a true gem of the Sonoran Desert, and a perfect place for spring or fall backpacking in the Southwest.

On a 3-day guided backpacking trip to this Arizona gem, you can wander through side canyons and climb up boulders if you’re feeling adventurous, or hang creekside in a hammock while you read a book. A balance of relaxation and exploration is found. Sound like your kind of adventure?

What do you picture when you hear the term ‘desert’? Whatever may come to mind, it is unlikely to include lush grasslands, verdant groves of cottonwood and sycamore trees, and crystal-clear water that flows year-round. That is exactly what you’ll find on our Aravaipa Canyon backpacking trip! An Arizona highlight, this secluded canyon has long been an oasis for backpackers looking for adventure in the Sonoran Desert.
