Arizona holidays offer a special combination of outdoor adventure and laid-back living, where long, sunny days fade into warm, balmy nights.

Home to some of the USA’s most spectacular natural landscapes, including the Grand Canyon and Monument Valley, holidays in Arizona are a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see the natural wonders of the world.

Experience history on your Arizona holidays

Arizona is an intriguing and ancient place with a rich and significant history, as well as an abundance of natural beauty. Much of Arizona sits on sacred American Indian land, including the mesmerising Monument Valley, a must-see on your Arizona holiday. Monument Valley is located on the Navajo Nation and is considered hallowed ground. Here, impressive sandstone towers in rich, red hues are bathed in sunlight, making for spellbinding vistas in every direction.

Few landscapes on earth rival that of Chiricahua National Monument. Described as a ‘lake of standing up rocks’, the park is home to towering spires of rock that have been formed over millions of years from the volcanic eruption at Turkey Creek. But perhaps the main attraction of your Arizona holiday is the chance to see the state’s most famous landmark and one of the seven natural wonders of the world up close - the Grand Canyon. Stretching a colossal 277 miles from end to end, this vast canyon is more than a mile-deep and surrounds the mighty Colorado River. The canyon’s sheer size and splendour must be seen to be believed.

Finish your Arizona holiday with a trip to the sparkling waters of Lake Powell, which is part of the Colorado River and located in northern Arizona. The crystal-clear waters are surrounded by Arizona’s trademark red rocks, making a spectacular environment where you can enjoy water sports. Go on a boat tour, hire a jet ski, or float through Glen Canyon on a 15 mile trip that allows you to witness the highlights of this beautiful place.

Holidays in Arizona are the perfect starting point to explore the rest of the American southwest. Arizona shares borders with no less than five states including California and Nevada.

“Visitors to Petrified Forest National Park should stay in the park to watch the sunset. It’s an incredible experience to witness the sun illuminate the coloured rocks and wood as it goes down.”

“A car is a must when you visit Arizona. The state is big and wild, and there’s so much to be explored. It’s also home to wide, open roads and is easy to drive, just like most of the rest of the USA.”
