Grand Canyon from Sedona

Consider making a detour stop in Sedona if you're driving to the Grand Canyon from Phoenix or Scottsdale. Sedona, Arizona was was named "The Most Beautiful Place in America" in USA Weekend's Annual Travel Report and is a mecca for artists, film-makers, energy healers, UFO enthusiasts… In other words, Sedona is as interesting as it is breathtakingly beautiful. The things you might want to experience while in Sedona are shopping, hiking, energy work, raw cuisine, art galleries and outdoor adventure tours. Sedona area tours can range from guided yoga hikes to hot air balloon rides with champagne picnics. Explore Native American ruins by day and treat yourself to a luxurious resort by night.

We recommend staying a night or two in Sedona first, then taking a day or overnight tour from Sedona to the Grand Canyon. Sedona-Grand Canyon tours are usually van tours that drive visitors through some of Arizona's most scenic country, spending a full-day exploring the South Rim and the 2-hour route to and fro. Another option is to book a helicopter tour from Sedona, or better yet, a combination of a van tour to the South Rim, and a helicopter over the Canyon upon arrival.

Some may choose to stay overnight at the Rim, but don't underestimate the value of "bookending" your trip with nights in Sedona. With a Sedona-Grand Canyon vacation, you'll enjoy the best of both destinations, and be able to fully explore all that northern Arizona has to offer.
