Local Business Spotlight: Arizona Luxury Expeditions


Those eager to enjoy the great outdoors with all the comforts of home can look no further, glamping (glamourous camping) has arrived, and one Estrella couple is capitalizing on the growing trend. Don Stevens and his wife Lorraine founded Arizona Luxury Expeditions (ALE) for outdoor enthusiasts who want to enjoy great camping at popular Arizona destinations without all the work of traditional camping.

Offering fine luxuries such as spacious tents, gourmet meals and local hiking guides, glamping is a pampered way to experience the outdoors. Packages average between two to five days, and allow individuals to enjoy scenic locations including Sedona, Horseshoe Bend and the Grand Canyon.

After spending a decade offering day tours in northern Arizona, Stevens decided to start a new adventure and began sharing his passion by making camping more accessible and comfortable to others.

“I spent 10 years doing one-day tours of the Grand Canyon, by the time you spent eight to nine hours driving, guests only had a couple of hours to appreciate the sights,” said Stevens, “I heard consistently from guests that they wanted more time at these great natural wonders.” Stevens then decided to establish Arizona Luxury Expeditions to help others spend more time experiencing nature’s beauty.

ALE professional guides do all of the work from camp setup, preparing meals and assisting in the planning of exciting activities including guided hiking excursions to the most spectacular landscapes in Arizona.
