Our rock climbing trips depart out of Sedona and take place on the high quality rock of the Mogollon Rim. We also offer single day canyoneering trips near beautiful Roosevelt Lake. Multi-day pristine wilderness based canyoneering tours are also available at this Roosevelt Lake site that can include tent or cabin based accomodations at our private ranch located in that area.

I have been at Sedona about 30 times. It never gets old. The area has a lot to offer. A few wineries have opened up and they all have great product, comfortable tasting rooms, and great scenery. Plenty of restaurants. Suggest Restaurants.com and Groupon for a few deals.

My dad and I decided we wanted to try a kayaking trip for a new adventure. I will start by saying that neither one of us had any experience prior to this outing. The booking process was very easy and straightforward. They answered all of our questions and were helpful so we were prepared for the trip. Their office/starting point... More

Enjoy a leisure kayak trip down the Verde River. Your adventure guides will provide clear direction and instructions throughout the entire voyage. There are a few small eddies that are easy to navigate with little or no previous kayaking experience. The guide described them as class 1 rapids. This tour is manageable for first-timers and novices. It is not an... More

We just did the Salome (the jug) one day Canyoneering trip this past weekend and loved it!! Our guide David was awesome! We felt safe with him and loved his knowledge of the canyon and desert. I highly recommend this trip! It's a day we'll never forget.

My wife and I had such a great time paddle-boarding with Jeff on the Verde! The river was so refreshing after a week of desert dryness. Jeff is a great guide and passionate about the emerging sport of whitewater SUP. I learned a lot and had a great time getting to know him as well. If you are looking for... More

Jeff and Catherine were great! My husband and I love to paddle board on the flat waters of the Midwest. When we went out to Sedona, we thought that going out on the Verde sounded like fun. What a different, engaging experience than just being out on a lake! Going through the Class 1 rapids on the Verde tested our... More

She had years of experience climbing and was very informative on great places to climb, and she's a down to earth and amazing person.

Our family was on vacation in Sedona, decided to do some paddle boarding. Reserved 4 boards. Our rental csr had little room. They set us up with deflated boards, pumps and safety equipment, detailed instructions on how to inflate and great recommendation for where to go, including maps. Overall, they knew what they were doing and made sure we did... More
