Tent Camping

Guests planning to tent camp: We strongly encourage you to view the campsite diagram before booking. The campsites are placed on the edge of a gravel parking lot, butted up against a small meadow. If you are planning to tent camp, we do allow those guests to place your tent in the small meadow, bearing in mind that it must be directly on the other side of the ropes sectioning off the campsites.

What to Expect During Your Stay

We’re open year round, which means the fun never stops!

Winter
During the winter season enjoy our well-groomed cross country ski trails. We offer over 40 km of ski trails groomed for both classic and skate style skiing. With over 15 km of well marked snowshoe trails, the Nordic Village is the perfect location for a winter hike. Trails may ONLY be enjoyed in the winter time with a Nordic Village trail pass and with either skis or snowshoes.
Summer
During the summer season, explore over 50 km of well marked trails by bike or foot. Wildlife is abundant as most areas of the center are designated No Motorized Vehicles by the United States Forest.
Each yurt or cabin is equipped with beds/bunks or mattress pads and wood stoves; picnic tables and portable toilets are located nearby. This is the perfect camping experience without having to “rough it” too much.

Customer Reviews

Donielle
We absolutely loved staying in the yurt.

It was def an experience!! I really appreciated all of the essential items included in the yurt such as newspaper and matches for the stove. The trails around were beautiful and we definitely got to enjoy nature like we had hoped for. Definitely would go back here next time we go up to Flagstaff.

Cannot wait to return!

Great location, easy drive up and accessibility, clear instructions, and the trails are right there.

Bella
We truly enjoyed our experience.

We camp often & bring more for our benefits but this place has it all down to extra seating & a beautiful fire place while you star gaze within your tent. Book it now!

Charissa
As always, it was a wonderful outdoor off the grid experience.

This was the 2nd time I stayed at the Nordic Village, the 1st time was a cabin and this time a yurt. Loved getting out of the Phoenix heat and enjoying the outdoors. Great location. And added bonus....the roof of the yurt has a sky light so you can look at the stars as you are drifting off to sleep.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there electricity and running water in the cabin/yurt?
We are an off-grid facility, meaning there will be no electricity or plumbing in your yurt/cabin, unless staying in Juniper cabin which has a small generator for phone chargers & lights.

Does Nordic Village provide linens in any of their stays?
YOU MUST BRING YOUR OWN LINENS! We ask that you bring your own sleeping bags, pillows, blankets, etc, unless staying in Juniper Cabin or the Ponderosa Room.

What are the restroom facilities like at the Nordic Village?
The lodge remains open 24/7 and has two restrooms, each with a shower stall. Shower tokens may be used for the lodge showers. Port-O-Potties are also located around the property for guest use. The restroom trailer is also typically available for guests to use in addition to port-o-potties around the property and the lodge. Each stall has a toilet, and a quarter-operated shower. Shower tokens will not work in the restroom trailer. Restroom trailer may be closed at facility staff’s discretion.

Can my dog/cat/bird stay with me in my cabin/yurt?
Yes! We love animals at the Nordic Village. We ask that you pay $10/night for each pet staying in your unit. Keep in mind there are other animals on the property, and respect other guests by controlling pets and recognizing quiet hours of 10pm to 6am. Please do not leave pets unattended in your yurt/cabin at any time.

Will I have cell phone service out there? What about wi-fi?
Many cell phone carriers work at the lodge, however, cell reception cannot be relied upon on the trail system. We do not offer wi-fi to our guests at this time. If you need to make a phone call or look something up on the internet, feel free to speak to a Nordic Village employee in the Lodge and they will be happy to help you.

Can I drive my personal vehicle/ATV to a backcountry yurt? 
Motorized vehicles are prohibited on Nordic Village trails. Arizona Nordic Village has a permit to operate our own motorized vehicles on the trail system for work purposes. If you would like a $40 gear shuttle for your backcountry yurt reservation, please select this option when making your reservation.

I’m confident that I will be able to navigate to my backcountry yurt in the snow after dark, do I really have to adhere to winter check-in times?
Weather and safety concerns require strict enforcement of Winter Season check-in times. No guest will be allowed to depart for Backcountry Yurts after 3pm. Late check-ins will result in a booking cancellation. No refunds will be issued for late check-ins.
