This Sunset Kayak Tour Is The Most Magical Thing You’ll Do All Summer In Arizona

Not only is sunset and its subsequent moonlit glow the most magical time of day here in Arizona, but it’s also by far the coolest – especially during the warmer months. Go Paddle AZ on Lake Pleasant has combined two of our favorite activities – kayaking and admiring incredible desert sunsets – into one epic adventure. Check it out, because you won’t find a whole lot of things as amazing as a sunset/nighttime kayak tour in Arizona!

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

For more information, head to Go Paddle AZ’s website or Facebook page.

Nighttime Kayak Tour in Arizona

August 17, 2021

Where can I go kayaking in Arizona? 

Just because Arizona is a desert doesn’t mean it doesn’t have plenty of great places for kayaking! There are so many great spots that one can’t exactly list them all here, but some of our favorites include places in northern Arizona like Lyman Lake State Park and Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area. If you’re looking for southern Arizona placs to kayak, you’ll love Patagonia Lake State Park (and honestly, the whole area of Patagonia is beautiful). There’s also the Colorado River, which has more than 1,400 miles running through the Copper State.  

What are some fun outdoor adventures in Arizona I can do?  

Arizona is a breathtaking state with so much going for it that we couldn’t possibly name it all in just one page – or even a few! It’s home to some of the most incredible hiking in the world, especially if you’re able to hike the 11-mile one-way trek to Havasu Falls, or maybe down into the Grand Canyon. Camping in the Copper State is also second to none; there are literally hundreds of absolutely incredible campsites to choose from. Arizona is a diverse place, too, and you can expect to find forests, mountains, deserts, plains, semi-arid landscapes, and some absolutely beautiful lakes, too.

Where can I go for paddle trips in Arizona? 

Arizona offers plenty of fun paddle trip opportunities; you can organize one on your own or go through a rental company. Either way, you’re going to have a great – if not exhausting – adventure. Some of the top-rated paddle trips and kayak tours in Arizona are the Emerald Cave Kayak Tours, and Colorado River paddle and kayak tours, and more. You’ll find rentals in Camp Verde, Sedona, Cottonwood, and other places throughout the state nearby relevant bodies of water. You can even find trips up near the Nevada border, which are particularly interesting if you’re a fan of desert landscape.
