et in Pinyon and Juniper woodlands Yavapai Lodge is just a short walk from the south rim of the Grand Canyon,

whilst Maswik Lodge, located in Ponderosa Pine Forest is even closer to the Canyons edge. These properties are inside the National Park itself and have worked relentlessly for their green credentials by supporting and promoting environmental protection, being active in areas of conservation by supporting local clean up days and serving sustainable cuisine in their cafés, their employees also participate in a volunteer programme. These lodges make an ideal base from which to explore the fascinating surroundings and enjoy the many activities available.

The ranch

Located in picturesque Coronado National Forest, Tanque Verde Ranch is set in 60,000 acres and offers a wide variety of terrain to explore. Founded in the 1880s as a working cattle ranch, it became a dude, or guest ranch in the 1920s, welcoming guests with a range of activities and offering beautiful desert and mountain views. Being a resort ranch, Tanque Verde offers an extensive range of activities, so it’s particularly well suited for those who want to ride but also want the option of doing other things. There are 3 swimming pools (indoor, outdoor and children’s wading pool) as well as a large jacuzzi and saunas in which to relax after a ride. The ranch offers a programme specifically for children 4-11 years.
