- Green/Sustainable Practices:
AOA provides exhilarating guided hiking, biking and multi-sport tours and vacations to some of the most beautiful locations in Arizona and the greater Southwest including the Grand Canyon and Havasu canyon. Guided full and half-day rafting, kayaking, and stand-up paddle boarding tours in the Scottsdale and Phoenix area are a great way to cool off under the desert sun. Guided river tours on our Class I (easiest rating) rivers are our most family-friendly activities. Swim and water fight or just relax and soak in the scenery. Your guide will provide expert assistance in paddling and information on Sonoran Desert geology, flora, fauna and human history. The river is an important oasis in the desert and attracts wildlife from bald eagles to wild horses.
