Join Naturalist Journeys for an easy going unpack and relax Southeast Arizona nature tour, based out of our favorite bed and breakfast, the Casa de San Pedro. The pace and itinerary for this tour are loose; do as much or as little as you like!

Enjoy birding, hiking, history, and a sample of local wines as we enjoy the region’s fun local restaurants. Spend pleasant days afield at a relaxing pace, designed for you to still be able to enjoy the Casa and all its charms. Your guide focuses on the birding and natural history of the region, and takes you on some of our favorite walks for a bit more local exploring, blended perfectly with local 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!
