Make your way from the airport to the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess. While the next five days may include moments of testing your bravery as you experience the unfamiliar, you’ll return each evening to a resort where you can truly relax. This AAA five-diamond resort has six pools, four restaurants, two 18-hole golf courses, and rooms with views of Sonoran Desert landscapes. It’s an ideal oasis for your adventurous getaway, with options to be active or do nothing at all during your time on property.
Stand-up Paddleboarding in a Desert Oasis

If you have yet to try stand-up paddleboarding, a half-day adventure on the Lower Salt River with Arizona Outback Adventures is the perfect way to try the relaxing yet challenging sport. While stand-up paddleboarding has been praised as a full-body aerobic workout, it’s also a peaceful way to explore the natural beauty of the Sonoran Desert as you paddle along the river. You’ll have a unique perspective on the ecosystems of this desert oasis, with no noisy motors to scare away the birdlife on the river’s shores.
