ABOUT YOUR ADVENTURE
The Grand Canyon & Sedona: Walking Through Time
The Grand Canyon is one of the world's greatest natural marvels—a cross section of the earth’s layers spanning the expanse of time. And Sedona, its younger cousin, glows brightly with red rocks and captivating formations. Lose yourself in the colorful expanse of Northern Arizona and discover natural treasures at every turn. With mind-blowing nature, insightful cultural excursions, charming hotels and restaurants, you'll quickly fall under the Southwest’s spell.
Begin your trip in the resort town of Scottsdale, due east of Phoenix. After a festive night in Old Town, head north in latitude and up in elevation, stopping to hike into the caldera of an extinct volcano before ending the day on the south rim of the Grand Canyon. Spend the next two days exploring the ins and outs of this natural treasure and appreciating its age-old majesty. Leave the Grand Canyon and head into the Navajo nation and national parkland sites—Wapakte, Sunset Crater and Walnut Canyon—to hike their canyons, crawl into their dwellings, and learn how the native people survived in an otherwise inhospitable desert. Continue on to the desert town of Sedona, celebrated by its surrounding Coconino National Forest, painted in magnificent red rock formations. Over the next few days, hike its rocky canyons, dip your toes in the refreshing Oak Creek, and enjoy incredible photographic opportunities in this place that just seems to make everyone happy. Every night, relax and unwind in Southwestern hospitality with comfortable, well-situated hotels and delicious regional fare.
The Grand Canyon and Sedona are on many people’s bucket list for good reason. They are a world-class living laboratory of geologic sciences and diverse habitats, a focal point of Native American history, and a photographer’s mecca. Roadrunner’s “Walking Through Time” itinerary is rich fodder for curious minds, complementing the must-see destinations with enriching and less well-known excursions and visits.
