National Geographic recently named Tucson one of the “50 Best Places to Live: The Next Generation Adventure Towns.” And the Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain is capitalizing on the designation.

“The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain is perched in an amazing natural setting that is truly one of a kind,” said Allan Federer, general manager. “Our 850-acre location offers 20 miles of property hiking trails already mapped by National Geographic; mountain biking through a lush Saguaro cactus forest; guided desert Jeep tours from the resort front; kids and teens’ environmental programming; and the opportunity for guests to enjoy a real cattle drive.”

At The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain guests can experience the high Sonoran Desert, the Wild West, Native American culture and history, Southwest flora and fauna and a mystical sense of place in the same trip. Clients can also venture into surrounding canyons for hiking, canyoneering, birding, geo-caching, orienteering, rock climbing, desert skills practice and archaeological touring, and guests have access to an adventure menu that offers a wide variety of choices.
