Destination Details

Aravaipa Canyon is a backpacker's dream - a desert environment like none other.  You will be within the Sonoran Desert - one of the most diverse areas in the world, but hiking through a lush, riparian area along the perennial Aravaipa Creek. This is a great trip for a beginner backpacker or an adventurer looking for seclusion, diversity and amazingness (not sure that is a word - but it should be)!

Aravaipa Canyon is a backpacker's dream - a desert environment like none other.  You will be within the Sonoran Desert - one of the most diverse areas in the world, but hiking through a lush, riparian area along the perennial Aravaipa Creek. This is a great trip for a beginner backpacker or an adventurer looking for seclusion, diversity and amazingness (not sure that is a word - but it should be)! 

Our Aravaipa Canyon trips enter via the east side of the canyon. This area is a bit more secluded.  Only 20 people are permitted into this side per day and requires an off road vehicle to access the area as the road is not regularly maintained. The east side is also managed and protected by the Nature Conservancy and when you get there, you will see why. The area is accessible year-round but the best times to visit are Spring through early Summer (June) and then again from late September through November.
