Welcome to Tucson
Discover our Neighborhood
Twelve thousand years ago, it was a Native American village by the name of “stukshon.” Loosely translated, it means, “springs from the foot of the black hill.” Which is exactly what Tucson does. Situated along the banks of the Santa Cruz River and bordered by both the Sonoran Desert and the Catalina Mountains, Tucson owes much of its powerful allure to its ancient land, heritage and spirituality.
Here at Loews Ventana Canyon, you will discover the beauty of the Sonoran landscape, the complexity of the stars and the sophistication of the city of Tucson. So explore the great outdoors on the resort's beautiful nature trail, or hike Sabino Canyon, just minutes from our hotel.

Horseback riding is as much a part of the American West as sunsets and saguaros. Horsemanship lessons and wrangler-guided trips (with trailside breakfast or picnic lunch) are available for both individuals and groups of all skill levels. Specialty rides, such as sunrise, sunset, and moonlight rides, can make the experience even more memorable. Whether you choose a half-day jaunt, a longer trail ride, a group or solo journey, riding horseback is the real Western way to explore the Tucson landscape. Contact the concierge for details.
