Well known for its steamy summers and wild, desert landscapes, Arizona is certainly a hotspot for outdoor adventures. Surprisingly, even with its parched terrain, almost 30% of the state is shaded by forests. The remainder consists of wide plains and plateaus, and, of course, the majestic Grand Canyon, a massive, 277 mile long gorge carved over millions of years by the swift waters of the Colorado River. Arizona is home to dozens of parks and monuments, including the Hoover Dam, the Painted Desert, and the Petrified Forest. Spend a weekend or a whole week exploring the breathtaking scenery by day and cozying up in a luxurious yurt by night. A perfect holiday escape for families, couples and singles alike!
