If you are like most people when you think of the desert you think of hot, dry weather, lack of water and cacti. But guess what? There is a whole other side to the desert that many people do not know about. Nestled in the heart of desert country is the Verde River. It runs for 170 miles and comes right through the Sedona-Cottonwood area. The river is running full after a particularly wet winter and this makes for great boating. That’s right I said boating. In the desert.
Imagine warm weather even in March! Weather that makes it perfect for boating, rafting and kayaking. Get out there in a Ducky Kayak offered by Verde Adventures and Sedona Adventure Tours and see the Verde Valley up close and personal. No need to sit on the sidelines when you can gave a great time by yourself or as a group boating in the desert.
Looking for high adventure or family fun? Verde Adventure and Sedona Adventure Tours offers something for everyone, including guided tours and plenty of instruction so you can ride your Ducky Kayak down the Verde River then take in all the attractions Sedona and Cottonwood have to offer off the water.
Most people are not aware of it, many certainly don’t even think about it but boating down the Verde River is a vacation alternative that will give you that high energy experience you are seeking and leave you with wonderful memories to reflect on after you pull that raft out of the water and are sitting at an outdoor café in Cottonwood or Sedona sipping a great beer or glass of wine.
Boating is not just for lakes and oceans. The Verde River offers a great ride with white water, picturesque nature scenes and plenty of sunshine. Slap on some sunscreen and schedule a Verde Adventure or Sedona Adventure Tour for yourself and your friends and family for an unforgettable vacation that beats the run of the mill tourist traps.
Think of the Styx song “Boat on the River” and let someone take you on down. For those of you too young to know who Styx is, download their songs into your iPod and you can listen during your boat trip. You will be glad you did both.
Boating on the river is for everyone because everyone can float down the river in the way that suits them best. In a boat, a Ducky Kayak, or a raft-they all offer an incredible experience to have a thrill or just relax and view the scenery.
After you drop anchor you can take in all the sights and sounds of the Verde Valley area. Be sure to check out the local dining and shopping and you don’t want to miss Red Rock State Park where you can see some of nature’s most beautiful geologic creations.
High adventure by day as you raft the running water and relaxation by night. Or if you prefer relaxation by day as you ride in a boat with someone else doing the heavy lifting and high adventure by night with all the local night life. You are only limited by your imagination.
