Destination Arizona

Grand Canyon State

If you imagine Arizona as a desert and scrubland, with only the occasional huge cactus dotted over an arid landscape – be prepared for a big surprise! In the USA’s sixth largest State, the terrain varies from desert to alpine, there’s an abundance of trees and plants…and more than 60% of all types of wildlife species found in North America reside in its 113,998 square miles! Arizona’s unique geological formations culminate in the awesome Grand Canyon, the UNESCO World Heritage Site rising majestically above the Colorado River. Monument Valley has provided a natural backdrop for many western films (as have many of our ranches); the ancient Indian ruins at Canyon de Chelly, the spectacular Red Rock country around Sedona and the huge meteorite crater near Winslow are other notable sites you should consider including in your itinerary. The homeland of the Apaches, this magical state is packed to the brim with frontier folklore, Tombstone once titled "The Town Too Tough To Die" famous for the legendary gunfight at the OK Corral. These, and many other stories from its notorious Wild West era, are waiting to be discovered in colourful Arizona.
