Experience the Sky Islands
Located in the center of Arizona’s Sky Islands, Red Mountain Cottage is just 62 miles south of Tucson and 20 miles north of Nogales, Mexico. Just outside the town of Patagonia, the community offers many opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts including hiking, horseback riding, world class bird watching, fishing, boating, biking and spelunking. You can shop at the galleries in Patagonia or venture south to visit historic Nogales for an international experience. With a history of mining, there are several ghost towns close by that are open to the public and ready to explore.
We can help you….
Set up a local wine tour with your own private tour guide.
There are a dozen or more wineries in the nearby communities of Sonoita and Elgin in Southern Arizona. The terrain here is very different from Tucson with miles of rolling hills, tall grasses and cattle herds. You may see pronghorn which have been reintroduced to this valley.
Get you on the trails with experienced horse back guides.
Nestled in the heart of Southern Arizona’s Sky Islands, the area surrounding Patagonia includes thousands of acres of the most scenic horseback riding trails in Arizona. With a guided tour, you will see stunning grasslands, canyons and mountain ranges where many Hollywood movies have been filmed.
Set you up with an expert Birder of the local species.
Patagonia is home to some of the richest of the remaining riparian (streamside) habitat in the region within the Sonoita Creek watershed. It’s one of a few remaining permanent streams that provides for a wide array of diverse species from endangered fishes to butterflies and birds.
