Most humans can't outrun a leopard or even outwrestle a black bear. But at Predator Zip Line, they can certainly out-engineer them. Conducted up to 75 feet above ground, the Predator tour's five zip lines soar over habitats full of storybook beasts from Out of Africa Wildlife Park, such as Barbary lions, white tigers, and giraffes. Along with the sights below, the Predator course affords panoramic views of the red rocks of Sedona, the summit of the San Francisco peaks, and the Verde Valley.
The guides at Arizona Trail Horse Adventures lead sightseers on horseback rides through Dead Horse Ranch State Park and the Verde Valley. Horse and rider traverse a variety of terrain, crossing barren riverbeds, trotting through high desert, or pondering the duality of cottonwood trees, all while absorbing the beautiful scenery of their surroundings. The trails pose numerous opportunities to spot the wild animals indigenous to the region, including great blue heron, black hawks, beavers, and mule deer. On the 180-minute Monument Loop Trail, peeled peepers can spot the Tuzigoot National Monument, which displays the remains of a Native American pueblo.
Vortex Yoga Hiking’s yogi, Blair Darby, leads each tour with a deft touch, helping hikers merge nature and spirituality as he offers lighthearted reflections on both. Fuse the stability of russet mountains with the flow of yoga on a yoga hike, where participants hike to a predetermined yoga site, allowing for a cardiovascular warm-up and stern talking-to for lazy joints. On the hike, Blair provides spiritual guidance and observations, peppered with gentle humor. The yoga flow lasts about 45 minutes, followed by 15 minutes of meditation to center the body and practice newfound hovering abilities. For a customized experience, patrons can elect to combine their yoga hike with options such as a walking chocolate meditation, raw-food picnic, or mandala coloring. Kids under the age of 10 can discover their inner pool of enlightenment while stoking their inner fire of commercialism: one child per adventure is paid $2 to join the tour. Contact Blair for reservations or for more information.

Before guests begin their expeditions, the off-roading pros equip them with helmets, goggles, and maps etched in sandstone so they can careen past red-rock formations and dense foliage on half- or full-day rides and find their way back easily and safely.
