Arizona Biltmore’s premier desert stargazing and night vision tour invites guests to embark on a journey through the Sonoran Desert to gaze at the moon, the swirling storms of Jupiter, the four Galilean moons and more. A 40-mile drive into the mountains through the Four Peaks landmark in the Tonto National Forest ensures an optimal stargazing experience. Once up in the Mazatzal Mountains, the tour of the solar system begins. “Stargazing ties into the unique offerings of the Sonoran Desert. The local light ordinances in Phoenix reduce the city’s light pollution and allow guests to see more of our beautiful universe,” says Abby Murtagh, Arizona Biltmore’s general manager. “Using state-of-the-art astrophotography equipment, guests are able to see a rare and exclusive glimpse into the sparkling, hidden world that stretches out above us.” And, before heading back to the resort, adventure seekers can pop a bottle of sparkling wine to toast the memorable experience, looking up at the universe in awe, taking it all in. arizonabiltmore.com
