Outdoor Adventure & Challenge

Step out of your comfort zone with the support of our expert facilitators.

Climbing Wall

The 35-foot climbing wall activity can begin with the basics for those new to the sport, or continue to build on skills learned by exploring climbing technique for those with previous experience. From here the focus can shift to movement, footwork and body positioning while integrating breathing, trust, flexibility, balance and fun. All climbers, from beginner to advanced, will take away a clearer understanding of equipment, knots, and belaying.

With the private experience, our guides can tailor the activity to your needs and really help develop your skills.

Based on availability:
Up to 3 Guests: $115 per person / 50 Min • RC
4 to 8 Guests: $135 per person / 2 Hrs Min • RC

Desert Tightrope

Desert Tightrope is an opportunity to traverse a 60-foot cable suspended 35 feet in the air using a series of ten hanging ropes spread along the cable to balance yourself. Secure in the knowledge you’re belayed by a Miraval Outdoor Adventure Specialist, you have the room to really focus on the present, letting go of the ropes holding you to your past as you move towards the future.

In this private session, you will have the calm environment to really concentrate and the freedom from any perceived group pressure or competition. You also have the opportunity for meaningful discussion with your facilitator to reflect on your experience.

* Wear closed toed sturdy shoes, preferably sneakers. You will be harnessed during this challenge, so carefully consider your choice of pants, comfortable Yoga pants or longer shorts are desirable rather than heavier options like jeans. Don’t forget your Miraval water bottle!

Hiking

We offer everything from 2 hour leisurely stroll through the desert to an epic 4 hour adventure on the steepest trails in the magnificent Santa Catalina mountain range.

Mountain Biking

Whether you’re looking to learn mountain biking basics for the very first time or being challenged on Sonoran desert single track by one of our cyclists on staff, we have a mountain bike adventure for you. We have a fleet of full-suspension mountain bikes that will take your experience to the next level, learning the basics or flying down the trail. With the private experience, our guides can tailor the activity to your needs and really help develop your skills.

Out on a Limb

Out on a Limb offers an opportunity to shift perception and gain confidence by walking, something we do daily without a thought, across a log suspended 25 feet in the air. It appears easy as we view it from the ground but it takes on a dramatically different look as we attempt to take that first step.

In this private session, you will have the undivided attention of our Outdoor Adventure specialists, the calm environment to really concentrate, and the freedom from any perceived group pressure or competition. You also have the opportunity for meaningful discussion with your facilitator, reflecting on the experience and how it has affected your day, your stay at Miraval, or even your life.

* Wear closed toed sturdy shoes, preferably sneakers. You will be harnessed during this challenge, so carefully consider your choice of pants, comfortable Yoga pants or longer shorts are desirable rather than heavier options like jeans. Don’t forget your Miraval water bottle!

Quantum Leap

Quantum Leap lends itself to discussion about transitions and letting go. Standing on top of a pole with nothing to hold on to and then leaping into the air involves significant trust in oneself and your belayer. Your Outdoor Adventure specialist may invite you to make a dedication or acknowledge something or someone you'd like to leave behind when you leap and what changes you want to leap into metaphorically and practically. Find a renewed sense of balance and relearn trust as you leap from a 25-foot pole.

* Wear closed toed sturdy shoes, preferably sneakers. You will be harnessed during this challenge, so carefully consider your choice of pants, comfortable yoga pants or longer shorts are desirable rather than heavier options like jeans. Don’t forget your Miraval water bottle!

Quantum Leap II

Quantum Leap II is an opportunity to step into a new beginning as you leap off a 35–foot pole after having maneuvered your way onto a platform on top. Getting onto the platform may take significant effort to find the balance and trust required, but the belaying and coaching provided by a Miraval Outdoor Adventure Specialist allows you to move through that perceived risk.
The advantage of a private session is having the quiet to really concentrate and the freedom from any perceived group pressure or competition. You also have the opportunity for meaningful discussion with your facilitator, reflecting on the experience.

Trail Running

Join one of our outdoor guides for an exhilarating trail run through the beautiful desert landscape at the base of the Santa Catalina Mountains. This run is suitable for all levels as our guides can introduce first-time trail runners to the activity or challenge those with prior trail running experience.

* Wear sturdy running shoes and comfortable, athletic clothing.
