Sedona is clearly known for its picturesque, natural landscape. As tempting as it may be to just sit back in a comfortable lounge chair at your Sedona resort and drink a glass of wine as you gape in awe at the stunning views, it is highly recommended that you put on your adventure hat and go explore this truly beautiful piece of geology at some point on your trip. Even if being outdoors to you is playing a round of golf, doing yoga on a vortex or visiting the wild animal park, Sedona is definitely a place to get outside and enjoy the fresh air.

There are several guided options for you to take advantage of while you're in Sedona, AZ. Go on a guided hike (vortex, archeological, nature...they're all excellent); Sedona Jeep tours are a great way to get up close and personal with the red rocks but still have the entertainment of a fun ride; or you could take a kayaking trip down the Verde River and even have the option of riding down the river to one of the local vineyards for some afternoon wine-tasting relaxation.
If you want to explore on your own, some of the more commonly enjoyed outdoor activities, are hiking, swimming in the creek, sliding down the mossy rocks of Slide Rock, blackberry picking during the rainy season in the summer, fall leaf peeping along Oak Creek Canyon, having a picnic along the water and camping. Soon, we'll have a list of our favorite hikes in the area.
If you're well-acquainted with mother nature, then you probably already have some mountain biking trails, rock climbing routes, swimming holes and epic hikes picked out. If you didn't know that about Sedona...SURPRISE! Yes, Sedona has some amazing natural features for you to enjoy. If you'd like to do any of these outdoor activities but think you might want a guide or some beta, there are mountain bike shops, climbing guides who come down from Flagstaff and all sorts of outdoor specialists that can assist you with any kind of site guiding or gear knowledge you may want to confirm before going out on your adventure.See Sedona Outdoor Recreation »
