In addition to magnificent Grand Canyon overlooks, you’ll view lava flow fields from Arizona’s most recent volcanic eruption, ancient Native American ruins and panoramic Painted Desert views. Along the way, you’ll travel some of the state’s most scenic roadways and make a stop at a historic Navajo trading post.

  • Travel through Oak Creek Canyon, Sunset Crater, and Painted Desert
  • Stop at the historic Cameron trading post for lunch and souvenirs
  • Hassle free, round-trip transportation from Sedona and Flagstaff hotels
What to Expect
Begin the tour with a pickup from your Sedona or Flagstaff hotel. Meet your group and guide, and relax during a ride along scenic Route 89A through Oak Creek Canyon. Drive through Flagstaff and see one of Arizona’s youngest volcanoes and lava fields at Sunset Crater. Next, stop at Wupatki National Monument, home to ruins of prehistoric Native American dwellings, ancient pueblos, and red-rock outcroppings. Enter the vast Navajo Indian Reservation, and see the colorful cliffs of the Painted Desert. Stop at historic Cameron Trading Post, where you lunch in the dining room overlooking the Little Colorado River Gorge, and shop for souvenirs if you'd like. Then, head toward the Grand Canyon. Stop at the East and South Rim, with time for photo opportunities along the way. See Canyon Village, Railroad Station, and Kolb Studio.
