Activities:

 

Hiking & Trail Running

From steep scrambles over giant boulders to flat, red rock-dusted paths, there are plenty trails to explore.  Whether you are an avid hiker, trail runner or someone looking for a more relaxing nature walk, you will experience some of the most breathtaking views Sedona has to offer.  The more popular trails can get busy so it's best to go early in the morning to avoid the crowds.

 

Biking

There are dedicated bike lanes throughout most of Sedona and are a great way to explore the area.  For those looking to get off of the pavement, there are number of easier to more technical mountain biking trails throughout the canyon.  What better way to while get your heart rate up as you navigate through the rolling hills or over the challenging terrain.

 

Yoga

Start your day and invigorate your mind and body with an inspiring sunrise yoga session at one of the beautiful outdoor spaces at our partner hotels.  Take in the magnificent views, breathe in the fresh morning air and connect to your natural surroundings.  Or, end your active day of exploring with a late afternoon restorative session that will allow you to unwind, relax and restore.

 

Stargazing

In 2014, Sedona was designated as only the eighth International Dark Sky Community in the world in its quest to preserve its night skies and natural environment.  With very little light pollution, Sedona's night skies are vibrant and perfect for stargazing.  Be in awe as you sit around a firepit and gaze up at the twinkling, night sky.
