The Grand Canyon is one of the most incredible sights in North America. Join this tour for a mix of Native American history, sight-seeing, hiking, and relaxing. Free time for shopping, dining, and exploring is provided in each destination. The incredible and vast landscape will live you feeling small and in wonder at the beauty of the earth.
Enjoy leisure time to relax, refresh, and explore. Walk the streets of Flagstaff, shopping, eating, and visiting the numerous coffee shops and roasters. In the evening, we come together for a group dinner.
The sparce landscape runs as far as the eye can see on the route to the western side of the South Rim, a major entrance to Grand Canyon National Park. Sweeping views of the Grand Canyon, Bright Angel fault line, and the Colorado River at Yavapai Point are all visible. Once inside the park, explore on own. Sights in this area include the historic El Tovar Hotel, the Pueblo replica of Hopi House, art exhibits at Kolb Studio, and the Rim Trail. We also stop at Sunset Crater, one of Arizona’s youngest volcanoes, and Wupatki National Monument, home to ruins of prehistoric Native American dwellings, ancient pueblos, and red-rock outcroppings.
Today we visit Page, Arizona, home to Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend, and Lake Powell. The canyon is a long, narrow slot canyon, 120 feet deep and carved to stunning perfection throughout the millennia. It truly is a sight to behold. It is no coincidence that this canyon is world renowned for its beauty and photographic opportunities and it is a must-see wonder of the American Southwest. After the tour, enjoy lunch at Glen Dam overlooking Lake Powell. Get a glimpse of Glen Dam Gorge on the other side. A quick hike up to Horseshoe Bend for a look at the Colorado River from above is the final stop before returning to Flagstaff.
After breakfast, embark on the incredibly scenic drive to Sedona, Arizona. Once there, hike the famous trail to the Devils Bridge. While all of Sedona is packed with rock formations that inspire the senses, a trek along Devil’s Bridge Trail brings hikers face to face with the most massive sandstone arch of them all. Rising 50 feet into the air, this arch is just as beautiful to witness from below as it is from above and is part of Coconino National Forest. After completing the hike, head into downtown Sedona for leisurely time to shop and explore.
