The Perfect Sedona Seven-Day Itinerary
Day 1: Hit the Trail
Hiking is one of the best ways to experience the natural beauty of Sedona. The stunning red rock formations feature tons of hiking trails weaving through the unique landscapes around the outskirts of town. Spots like Red Rock State Park, the Airport Mesa, and Devil’s Bridge are some of the most popular hikes in the area, but with over 100 trails around Sedona, you’ll never run out of new places to see. Check out some of our favorites on our blog!
Day 2: Take a Tour
If you’re a first-time visitor to Sedona, the collection of attractions and activities can be a little overwhelming. We recommend taking a tour (or several) to get a lay of the land and enjoy an array of incredible experiences. Whether you want to explore the canyons and foothills in a Pink Jeep, get a bird’s-eye view of the red rocks from a helicopter, or take a first-class charter to some of the most popular locations in the area, you’ll discover many incredible ways to see Sedona.
Day 3: Enjoy a Sedona History Lesson
There are more than a handful of historical attractions that you will want to include in your seven-day Sedona itinerary. You can view architectural icons from early 12th and 13th-century Indian tribes at the Palatki and Honanki Heritage sites. The Chapel of the Holy Cross offers a contrast to the historic pueblo dwellings with its stunning showcase of the cutting-edge, mid-20th century architecture. If you want to view one of the best-preserved cliff dwellings in North America, Montezuma Castle needs to be on your Sedona itinerary!
Day 4: Meditate at the Vortexes
Experiencing the vortexes in our area is one of the most unique things you need to put on your seven-day Sedona itinerary. These transformative, swirling centers of energy circulate at a collection of world-renowned spots like the Bell Rock Vortex and the Boynton Canyon Vortex. Visitors from around the world come to Sedona for these mysterious healing powers.
Day 5: Sip Your Way Through Arizona Wine Country
Little-known Arizona wine country is home to some incredible gems, especially along the Verde Valley Wine Trail. From vineyards to charming tasting rooms, the small towns that dot the trail offer a glimpse at local life.
Day 6: Take a Day Trip to the Grand Canyon
The Grand Canyon is an excellent day trip for those wanting to branch out and explore even more! It’s about a four-hour round-trip drive from Sedona to the Grand Canyon Village, but we recommend taking a train up from Williams (near Flagstaff) to this incredible wonder of the world.
Day 7: Relax at Your Rental and Explore the Outdoors
Take advantage of the incredible amenities at your Red Sedona vacation rental on the final day of your seven-day Sedona experience. We recommend going out for an early morning hike before heading back to cool off in your pool as you soak in the views. Grill out with the family before staying up to gaze up at the stunning showcase of stars.
