Tour Overview

Southern Arizona Bike Tour: Sonoran Desert, Saguaro National Park & Tucson

Outside Magazine calls this southern Arizona bike tour a “life-list-worthy tour” featuring miles of fabulous cycling through the Sonoran Desert. Ride through forests of giant saguaro cacti and expansive grasslands dotted with vineyards. Inhale the sweet aroma of the desert and revitalize yourself in the sunny Southwest.

In a region recognized as one the most popular winter bicycling locations in the US, as one of the most experienced tour operators in southern Arizona, Sojourn rewards travelers with warm winter cycling trips guided by experienced tour leaders. Spectacular and diverse scenery combine with abundant sunshine, warm weather and miles of fabulous cycling routes through the Sonoran Desert to create a not-to-be-missed vacation.

Southern Arizona’s Sonoran Desert is framed by rugged mountains and features open vistas filled with an abundance of cacti and native wildlife. The region is also home to sprawling cattle ranches and rural roads where you’re more likely to encounter cows than motorized vehicles. These open vistas inspire a sense of freedom and “get away from it all” rejuvenation.

Indulge in some of the region’s finest wines, as Southern Arizona’s wineries and vineyards are one of the region’s hidden gems, with some winemakers having been in operation for nearly 30 years. Enjoy a private luncheon, tour and tasting at the winery that planted the first vines in the region to get a taste of Arizona’s most savory offerings. Visit the lively town of Tubac, a popular southwestern artisan colony, and perhaps opt for a tour of the Spanish mission at Tumacácori National Historic Park for an in depth perspective on the region’s cultural history.

Arizona: Sonoran Desert & Saguaro National Park Bike Tour MapOur Southern Arizona bike tours feature remarkably warm weather for bicycling, with daytime temperatures typically in the mid 60s to upper 70s. Route options offer terrain and mileage suited both intermediate and avid cyclists.

" The trip exceeded my expectations, particularly riding through the Arizona landscape; the varied routes, the flexible options offered for riding and other activities, the accommodations in Tucson and Tubac, and the ride leaders' knowledge, endless preparation and encouraging attitudes. "

Joyce Videlock

" It was a thrill to see Arizona by bike. You feel so much of the essence of the desert, the culture, and the mountains. It was a bike tour and so much more. It’s quite something to experience a region like you can with Sojourn. "

Terry Sullivan
