Nestled at the foot of Brandenburg Mountain, Aravaipa Canyon Ranch invites you to a quiet getaway for reflection, healing and spiritual renewal. Miles of secluded, ever-changing terrain in the midst of natural, pristine beauty unfold to the accompaniment of the singing waters of Aravaipa Creek, one of Arizona's all-year-round streams.

The Ranch is available for self-directed retreats, family gatherings, and group activities. Guests are encouraged to create their own experiences. Our hope is that our guests will return home with a renewed sense of purpose, gratitude, compassion, peace and spiritual connection.
