One of the 'Four Corners' states, Arizona shares its borders with New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, California and Mexico, and is a state of exceptional attractions; it's the home of the original London Bridge, Sedona rock formations, sacred vortexes and giant Saguaro cactuses that grow nowhere else on earth. In addition to Grand Canyon National Park, it's also home to several national forests, park and monuments.
Approximately one-quarter of the state is home to twenty-two Native American tribes, including the Navajo Nation and Hopi Tribe that have played a part in the state's developing history and culture. Most of the tribes welcome visitors to their reservations, but please note that each tribe operates under its own govermental structure and has its own set of guidelines that you will be expected to abide by.
There are few places where you can ski on either water and snow, enjoy the baking heat of the desert followed by the cool air of the high mountains, pan for real gold then drive herds of cattle. Those who love the active life will adore Arizona’s horse-riding trails, white-knuckle rafting and challenging kayaking, while sports fans will adore the world-class golf courses, excellent fishing and varied hunting, while the more culturally and gastronomically hedonistic travellers are sure to appreciate the divine spas, renowned art galleries and exceptional restaurants.
