SedonaUnited States of America

The Red Rock Country of Arizona is famed for its Native American history, incredible landscape and outdoor activities.

Known as “Red Rock Country,” Sedona, Arizona offers visitors a huge range of outdoor sports and activities amid a backdrop of spectacular scenery, a robust spiritual and artistic community, many ancient dwellings and more than 80 galleries.

Sedona’s red sandstone formations make a stunning backdrop for many outdoor pursuits. Rent a motorbike or buggy and take a self-guided tour through to the Grand Canyon or one of the other nearby landmarks, such as the Wupatki and Sunset Crater National Monument.

Make the most of over 200 miles (320 kilometers) of hiking and biking trails that wind their way through buttes and monoliths, deep canyons and thick forests. The trails offer different levels of difficulty and different experiences. Some lead to high elevations and sweeping views, others to winding creeks and unusual geological features.

Bikes and hiking equipment are readily available for rent. For biking enthusiasts there is an annual mountain biking festival.

Visit one of the area’s many spiritual guides and healers who have inhabited Sedona for many years, and who claim the area possesses extraordinary powers for meditation and healing. Take a tour to Bell Rock, Airport Mesa, Cathedral Rock or Boynton Canyon, which some claim were created by electromagnetic vortexes of energy.

For a taste of the rich Native American history of the area, visit the Palatki and Honanki heritage sites, where you can see ancient cliff dwellings and rock art. Montezuma’s Castle, a five-story, 20-room dwelling built by the Sinagua farmers in the 12th century, is considered by many one of the best preserved historic structures in the Southwest.

Sedona’s low levels of pollution make it one of the finest places in Arizona to view the night sky. Sign up for the Evening Sky Tours, and learn about the constellations and stars.

Sedona offers unique geology, rich history and outdoor activities, making it a popular and interesting holiday destination.
