Shuttling past the Sonoran Desert’s arid flora and fauna on segway X2s, Adventures Out West’s guides lead off-road excursionists through the desert and red rocks of the Sedona backcountry. Riders embark on easygoing and elevated 90-minute sightseeing tours through Arizona’s prehistoric landscape, from red-rock formations shaped 350 million years ago to granite grills assembled by packs of Paleolithic tailgaters. Scootering sessions go off the beaten path into the mysterious depths of the desert, where adventurers spy the land’s towering saguaro cacti and curious creatures while perched atop a segway for an exhaustion-free desert hike. Equilibrious roadsters will rumble over the native caliche earth on the X2’s sturdy off-roading tires, easily traversing the dry terrain without needing to bum a ride from a passing tumbleweed. The Uptown tour includes a stop at the Tlaquepaque arts and crafts village, as well as a jaunt across the cobblestoned streets of Oak Creek’s idyllic marketplace.
Adventures Out West’s guides pre-train participants, who are armed with all the necessary equipment, with 20–30 minutes in the cone zone, expounding on the basics and potential risks of segway steerage. Adventures Out West asks that participants be able to nimbly step off a curb and physically climb stairs without the use of a railing or an antigravity slinky.
