Overview

“The Grand Canyon fills me with awe. It is beyond comparison — beyond description … Do nothing to mar its grandeur … Keep it for your children and your children’s children, and all who come after you.” – Theodore Roosevelt

An immense gorge a mile deep and up to 18 miles wide, the scale of the Grand Canyon is so vast that even from the best vantage point, only a fraction of its 277 miles can be seen. Paired with Sedona, a geological wonderland where multi-hued stone formations jut upward from the high desert floor, creating a vivid, mesmerizing setting, this incredible adventure combines two magnificent destinations into one amazing experience.

View the stunning Red Rock Country on a Pink Jeep tour. Discover the history, geology, climate, flora and fauna of Sedona on a narrated trolley tour and visit the striking Chapel of the Holy Cross with spectacular views. Witness the rugged, high-desert rock faces and spectacular vistas of the Verde Canyon only accessible by rail. Visit Montezuma Castle National Monument, a five-story cliff dwelling built into an alcove 100 feet above the Beaver Creek Canyon floor. And spend a day at the incredible Grand Canyon touring one of America’s most popular national parks with a local guide.

Wed, June 26: Grab your camera for a Pink Jeep tour of Sedona’s Red Rock Country. Choose between a relaxing, on and off-road experience where you will see beautiful red rock panoramas and learn about the local plant life, wildlife, geology, and history, or take in the amazing landscape while traveling along a rugged and bumpy old wagon trail road gaining over 1,500 feet in elevation. This afternoon, take an excursion on the Verde Canyon Railroad. Step aboard the fully restored vintage train, complete with luxurious coaches and shaded open-air viewing cars. Your first-class passage includes Champagne upon departure, living room-style seating with panoramic windows, and complimentary appetizers. The ride from Clarkdale to the turn-around point of Perkinsville reveals incomparable scenery, high-desert flora and fauna, historic trestles, unusual rock formations, and passage through a century-old 680-foot tunnel. Throughout the journey the captivating history of the Verde Canyon and the railroad unfolds with narration interlaced with railroad tunes.
