Cottonwood Tour Ideas
Hot air balloon flights are meant to take in panoramic views and vistas of the surrounding natural beauty. That is why Verde Valley Balloons flies in the Cottonwood area, 20 miles south of Sedona, not in the Red Rocks area. To see the Red Rocks, we suggest taking a jeep tour. There's no better way to get up close and personal with the rock formations. But if you'd like to experience extraordinary views (depending upon the weather and wind direction) of Mingus mountain, the Verde River, the Prescott National Forest, Tuzigoot National Monument, Jerome, Cottonwood, or sites as far away as Sedona and even the San Francisco peaks at the base of the Colorado Plateau near Flagstaff, you will want to fly with Verde Valley Balloons in Cottonwood because you simply can't see those vistas anywhere else.
Come paddle the peaceful, friendly stretch of the Verde River on this 2 to 3-hour kayak tour from Clarkdale. With just enough current to get a taste of river running without the risk of more treacherous areas down river, beginner and veteran river runners alike enjoy the scenery and opportunities to cool off in this wonderful run. Choice of departure time and all necessary equipment is included.
