There are plenty of things to do and see that will keep everyone happy and busy throughout your stay, as well as tours in Sedona that will immerse you in everything!

Red Rock Scenic Byway

Pack up the rental car with everything you’ll need for a good time sightseeing and gather your group. SR-179, better known as The Red Rock Scenic Byway, is a short trip that can last all day. The byway only measures 10 miles long, but you can while away the day at the many scenic pull-off points along the route. Marvel at the towering red rocks and breathtaking view of Red Rock Country, a beautiful sight any time of day. Cruise the byway at sunset as the colors glow while the sun sets below the rocky vistas. Don’t forget to stop by the Coconino National Forest visitor’s center for maps of local hiking and biking trails.

Verde Canyon Railroad

Take a scenic tour of the area and leave the driving to someone else. The whole group can enjoy the sights and beautiful scenery of Sedona’s Red Rock Country on the Verde Canyon Railroad. The railroad run year-round and is a fun way to sightsee, as it takes you through areas you won’t be able to reach in your rental vehicle. You can choose to take in everything from your ticketed seat, or head to an open-air viewing platform car for a better view of the red rocks and pine forest. If you visit around a holiday, make sure to book the “Chocolate Lovers’ Special” for Valentine’s Day, or themed rides for St. Patrick’s Day, Cinco de Mayo, and other holidays.

Off-Road Tours

There is a myriad of ways to experience the great outdoors of Sedona’s Red Rock Country. An off-road tour mixes a scenic drive through the mountains like that found on the Red Rock Scenic Byway, with the adventure of hiking or biking through the terrain unreachable in your rental vehicle into one unforgettable experience. Jeep and off-road tours take you through parts of Sedona you wouldn’t be able to access any other way. See the red rock formations, experience breathtaking views, and learn about the region’s ecology, geology, and history along the way from your tour guide.

Helicopter Tour

Once you’ve seen the area from the ground, take to the skies! You and your group can view the colorful landscape of Sedona and the surrounding area from a bird’s eye view on a helicopter tour. Your pilot will point out popular landmarks like the Chapel of the Holy Cross, Three Nuns Rock, Snoopy Rock, Steamboat Rock, and many more of the famous rock formations in the area. Keep your eyes open and your camera ready for spotting area wildlife. Packages vary by tour company, with rides as short as 15 minutes all the way up to 55 minutes of air time. Ask about transportation to and from your accommodations.

Winery Tour

The unique climate of desert heat during the day and the low temperatures of northern Arizona at night – make Sedona a great environment for wine making. Due to these conditions, more than 20 wineries have decided to call the Sedona area home. Take some adults-only time and enjoy a tour of any of the many wineries along the Valley Verde Wine Trail through a special tour or create your own path. Whichever you choose, make sure you have safe and responsible transportation between venues and back to your accommodations.
