Yurts & Cabins

375 Reviews

We have numerous camping and lodging options available year-round!

The Village is taking COVID-19 seriously and we remain open for overnight bookings as of April 21, 2020.
We are taking a number of additional cleaning and sterilizing precautions, and limiting our buildings to access only for overnight guests.
If you are looking to book a stay with us for anytime in the remainder of 2020, rest assured that you can cancel for a full refund or change your reservation at any time at no cost, although we appreciate as much notice as you can give us.
Please practice safe social distancing and good hygiene as recommended by the CDC during your stay to help keep yourself and others safe. The Village and it’s trails offer plenty of social distancing and escape-from-news-headlines opportunities!

As of 5/14, there will be no outdoor fires in the backcountry until further notice under Stage 1 fire restrictions.

Customer Reviews

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.

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!

As always, it was a wonderful outdoor off the grid experience.
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, except for Fridays when late check-in is allowed up to 6pm. Late check-ins will result in a booking cancellation. No refunds will be issued for late check-ins.
