Join Naturalist Journeys for an unpack and relax Southeast Arizona nature tour, based out of our favorite B&B, the Casa de San Pedro. The pace and itinerary for this tour are loose; do as much or as little as you wish! Senior (and local) Guide Bob Behrstock is your captain for the week.

Choose from birding, hiking, history, and a sample of local wines as we enjoy the region’s fun local restaurants. Enjoy pleasant days afield at a relaxing pace, designed for you to still be able to enjoy the Casa and all its charms. Bob focuses on the birding and natural history of the region, while Naturalist Journeys’ owner Peg Abbott visits to offer some of her favorite walks and a bit of local exploring, adding in her blend of geology and birds.

January is a stunning time to explore on an Arizona tour; visit Arizona’s Sky Island mountain ranges, a wonderful escape from cold weather and perfectly timed for relaxation after the holidays. What could be more rejuvenating than a week at the Casa de San Pedro!
