5 Adventurous Things To Do During a Scottsdale Bachelorette Party

Scottsdale Boat Rentals
Buy your cheeky one-pieces and plan your nautical-themed Instagram captions now – because you and your bachelorette crew are hitting the high seas. Or at least Lake Saguaro.
Grab that adorable captain’s hat, because you can rent a pontoon boat that seats up to 12 people for as much time as you like Precision Marina! You lounge on your boat deck for a ½ day or the full day, so the time commitment is up to you and your girls. These boats are perfect for dance parties, sun tanning, and taking a dip in the lake.
And if you’re looking for something a little more active, they also rent out single and double kayaks so you and your girls can explore the water and get in a great arm workout at the same time!
If anyone in your bachelorette group has “see the grand canyon on their lifetime bucket list, here is the perfect opportunity to check it off.

DETOURS is the perfect way for touring bachelorette parties to see the must-see outdoors of Arizona without doing hours of transportation and activity planning all by yourself.

Thanks to the breathtaking Sonoran desert views, Scottsdale is a perfect place for a hot air balloon ride. Hot Air Expeditions are dedicated to every small touch that makes your sunset hot air balloon rides awe-inspiring, from a first-timer balloonist ceremony to a luxurious meal enjoyed in the desert. You and your bach crew can soar thousands of feet in the air for an exhilarating yet relaxing activity.
Sonoran Outdoor Adventures
Let’s go, girls. We’re biking through the desert.
We love a cycling class as much as the next person, but sometimes you just need some amazing desert views during your cycling workout. Sonoran Outdoor Adventures offers fat bike tours to easily tackle the bumpy, rocky desert trails. You can learn about your surroundings from expert outdoor guides that have dedicated their lives to Sonoran desert fun.
They will take you on a biking tour that is just challenging enough to feel accomplished, but not so tough that you don’t want to finish. Essentially, you will really deserve extra servings of dessert after the adventure.
Bonus: The post-adventure celebration
Speaking of a post-adventure reward, one of the most important parts of an outdoor adventure is the food you’re going to eat after the activity. So no matter what you’re looking to chow down on after a day of exercise, we have the recs for you!
The casual beer and brat
No need to get ready – you can head straight to Brat Haus dusty and sweaty and feel perfectly at home! The casual bench seating and outdoor ambiance bake it the perfect place for an icy cold beer and a meal that is as easy as it is delicious.
So you got your fill of grunge – time to turn on the glam.
Toca Madera is a great choice for the transition from a desert activity to a fun night out. We love this spot because it is upscale, but still has the bigger portions you crave after a day of running around the desert.
Sometimes you prioritize ambiance. Sometimes you want something really easy. Other days, you just want good food and A LOT of it. That’s where RnR Gastropub comes in. With a “burger of the month,” several apps, and tons of salad and sandwich options, everyone will leave feeling full and happy.
The best part of a bachelorette party is tailoring it perfectly to the personality of the bride. If your friends are looking for the ultimate outdoor adventures, you can find them in Scottsdale.
