Adventurer’s Journey to Scottsdale, AZ

When many of us go on vacation, we do so with the singular goal of having a chance to escape the confines of the monotonous routine of work and schedules to be able to have an adventure and do something we normally wouldn’t get to. Whether this be rushing down rapids, trekking through harsh terrain to get a glimpse of some natural wonder, or tearing through the sky as we plummet to the earth from some plane high above. No matter what your ideal adventure is, you are sure to find many adventures in Scottsdale. Read on and discover all the exciting excursions and exploration that can be done on an adventurer’s journey to Scottsdale, AZ!

Take to the Trails

You’ll find that despite the urban nature of the area, you’ll find a wide range of different hiking trails that people come from all over the world to enjoy. For instance, you might enjoy tackling Camelback Mountain, which is easily the most popular hike in the area. Make your way up over 2,000 feet in elevation over 2.5 miles of steep climbing before being gifted with panoramic views of the breathtaking desert scenery, as well as the stunning, sprawling urban expanse. Afterward, head on over to McDowell Sonoran Preserve, where you will find a fully sustainable desert habitat that features 84 multiuse trails ranging from 1.9 to 51.2 miles. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, take on one of the rock climbing courses that can be found in the area.

Take a Nature Tour

After some time exploring the area on your own, make sure you make the most of a knowledgeable guide and truly learn about the surrounding area with a tour. For instance, take a trip on over to REI Co-op Adventure Center, which offers a range of different Scottsdale adventures and tours—from flying across the rocks on mountain bikes to bouncing and bumping your way down a river in a kayak or a scenic and calm walking tour where you can sit back and enjoy the sights. They also offer a number of classes for both yoga and hiking, should you desire to get some extra skills in before your journey. You can also check out Wandering Hearts Adventures, which offers a range of multiday tours of the very best northern and southern Arizona have to offer. They even offer custom tours if there is something particularly interesting you were hoping to explore during your stay.

End with Scottsdale Adventures Back in Time

While it goes without saying that there are many delectable restaurants hidden amongst the cactus and sands of Scottsdale, if you are looking for adventures in Scottsdale and an all-around unique experience, head back in time as you head on over to Medieval Times Diner and Tournament. Enjoy this dinner and show as you cheer on your knight as they fight with swords, take each other on in the famous joust, and equine entertainers put on a show. All this is done with modern special effects and lights to truly create a memorable show. You’ll also get to dine on a true feast fit for kings, featuring garlic bread, tomato bisque, roasted chicken, sweet buttered corn, herb-roasted potatoes, and two rounds of non-alcoholic drinks—don’t worry, there is a proper tavern so can get spirits during the show!
