Home of the world-famous Grand Canyon, the state of Arizona in the United States offers almost everything to local and foreign tourists alike. Besides the majestic orange landforms, there are also numerous amazing vistas, Instagram-worthy sceneries, relaxing resorts, historical sites and monuments, and culture-filled museums. But what makes Arizona distinct among the other states is its unique variety of outdoor activities for everyone. If you are an outdoor enthusiast or an adventure seeker, you might want to go camping and stay in the middle of the wilderness in a yurt. Here just some of the top yurts in Arizona, USA.
You will surely feel like you are the king of the world when you stay at this yurt at the top of the mountain. Located at the top of the high desert mule mountains, enjoy a panoramic view of the skies, and the sun during your stay. Despite being located at the mountaintop, the yurt is also near the town center and all of the best shopping, restaurants, and entertainment places. The yurt comes equipped with a kitchen, a dining table, and a sitting area. There is also a shower and a toilet area.

This private yet eco-friendly yurt located on a 10-acre (4-hectare) wooded property provides a very peaceful stay for couples, families, or groups of friends wanting to have time to relax while being surrounded by nature. The yurt comes with three beds complete with sheets and blankets, plus an indoor wood-burning fireplace to keep everyone warm during the winter season. There’s also a separate bathroom and an outdoor solar shower.
If you need to go to town, fret not, as the yurt is just a short drive away from the town center and just 45 miles (72.4 kilometers) away from the Grand Canyon.

Also part of the Nordic Village Lodge is the Lily yurt. This one-bedroom, one-bathroom yurt can accommodate up to four guests at any time. The yurt is completely off the grid, so electricity and water are only available at the lodge and not in the yurt itself. The Lily yurt is specially made for camping purposes, so guests are expected to bring their own supplies, like water, sleeping bags, pillows, and other supplies. You will surely enjoy your stay at the Lily yurt.
