Tour Itinerary Details

Day 1: Flagstaff, AZ to Grand Canyon’s South Rim

Your adventure begins from the moment you touch down in the scenic mountain town of Flagstaff, AZ. You will enjoy every minute of the stunning drive up to Grand Canyon that takes you through ponderosa pines forests, aspen groves, and iconic western sagebrush landscapes. In Tusayan, AZ, prepare to see Grand Canyon for the first time in the most dramatic way possible. Once on board your helicopter, you will fly over the forest to a breathtaking view of the world’s largest canyon dropping out below you. Finally, you will drive into the national park where you will enjoy convenient lodging that is only a few minutes' walk away from more awesome South Rim views and an easy stroll through historic Grand Canyon Village.

Day 2: Grand Canyon Mule Ride

Enjoy a tasty brunch at El Tovar hotel before hitting the trail for today’s adventure. You’ll begin by meeting one of Grand Canyon’s most beloved residents, its mules. Gear up and get comfy on your mule so you can sit back and enjoy the canyon vistas and endless photo ops along your journey. Your guide will expertly take you right along the canyon rim, so you won’t miss a moment of the views and will teach you about how the canyon formed, its indigenous people, and its unique wildlife. Return to the mule barn, give your mule one last pat, and then head wherever you would like on the South Rim to wrap up your day. Opt into a canyon hike, a decadent meal, or an unforgettable sunset along Hermit Road for an evening to remember.

Day 3: Grand Canyon South Rim to Sedona

You’ll say goodbye to Grand Canyon and set off on a northern Arizona road trip. Take the scenic route through the San Francisco Peaks where you can enjoy the sweeping views of mountains, pine forests, aspen groves, and maybe even spot an elk if you’re lucky. You’ll enter the back way into the charming mountain town of Flagstaff, AZ where you can opt to have lunch at one of the many terrific restaurants and breweries in the walkable downtown. Next you will head to Sedona through gorgeous Oak Creek Canyon which will twist and turn as you descend into the red rocks that the town is famous for. Your destination is a luxury resort that includes beautiful accommodations and world class food, all surrounded by some of the most famous views in the Southwest.

Day 4: Sedona Off Road Adventure

Wake up in comfort at your resort and prepare for a fun day of exploring and getting off the main drag. Your guided open-air Jeep tour promises adventure as you 4x4 past some of Sedona’s most famous rock formations and fully understand what makes this area so unique. You’ll still have plenty of time to explore town where you can indulge in excellent restaurants, browse the unique art galleries and stores, or hike or bike on endless trails. You’ll enjoy one final evening at your resort where a sunset swim or drink will wrap up a satisfying day. 

Day 5: Depart Flagstaff

You’ll get one last scenic drive as you head out of Sedona and back up to Flagstaff. You’ll be glad on your last day that you opted into the convenience of flights into and out of Flagstaff since this small and easy to navigate airport is a relaxing way to depart after four full days of exploring Grand Canyon and Sedona.
