Originally founded in 1987 as the tourism arm of the Scottsdale Area Chamber of Commerce, Experience Scottsdale became a standalone organization in 2001. The organization has more than 40 full- and part-time employees, along with a volunteer board of directors composed of local hospitality and tourism industry leaders.
Arizona Outdoor Adventures (AOA) provides the finest guided hiking, mountain biking, rafting, kayaking, multi-day adventure vacations, and corporate team-building programs in the Southwest. Exploring on foot is the most intimate and educational way to experience the desert. You’ll enjoy an up close and personal look at the elements that comprise the Sonoran Desert, and find answers to ever-popular questions: Just how old is that saguaro? From which cactus did John Wayne drink? Our hikes are more than a simple nature walk; they are designed so that individuals of modest fitness levels as well as more active participants will enjoy themselves. All of our trails have been chosen not only for their scenic beauty but also their accessibility, safety, and low volume of visitors. Combined, these factors afford our guests an unforgettable Sonoran Desert experience.
AOA’s exhilarating guided hiking, biking and multi-sport tours and vacations travel to some of the most beautiful locations in Arizona and the greater Southwest. From the Grand Canyon and Havasu Falls, to Zion and Bryce, the Grand Staircase-Escalante, and the hallowed vales of Yosemite National Park, our trips offer exciting backcountry experiences with luxurious comfort, exquisite food, and an unsurpassed level of customer service.
