Welcome to Sedona


Sedona, Arizona is one of the most beautiful places in the US. Located in the heart of Red Rock Country, its cliffs and plateaus provide a stunning backdrop for this bustling town. Only 120 miles (193km) north of Phoenix, Sedona is fast becoming one of Arizona's top holiday destinations.

Sedona is a paradise of outdoor activity: mountain biking, quad biking, hiking, rock climbing, horseback riding, camping and driving. Oak Creek Canyon, just north of town, offers rock pools and slides for swimming and dramatic settings to pitch your tent in, and popular trails like the Broken Arrow, Cathedral Rock, Devil's Bridge, Bell Rock and Soldier's Pass.

A unique attraction of Sedona is its reputation as the site of the confluence of five large vortexes. It is said that the strong magnetism of the earth in Sedona has natural healing properties, and as a result the city has a thriving New Age medicine industry. You'll find a multitude of spas, herbalists, healers and spiritual guides. The vortices are said to be concentrated at Bell Rock, Airport Mesa, Cathedral Rock, Boynton Canyon, and Schnebly Hill, and there are many guided tours of these sites available from Sedona.

Shopping in Sedona offers a number of stores with Native American arts and crafts as well as New Age shops stocking crystals and other items. Hozho Plaza is home to a number of art galleries, and there are a lot of upscale shops in Hillside. Tourists eating out in Sedona have a number of options as well: there are a variety of restaurants and bars catering to every budget and taste, some rated among the best in Arizona, and Sedona caters well for vegetarians and vegans.

Whether you go to be active by climbing the mountains and swimming the rock pools, or passive by meditating and being pampered in a spa, a holiday in Sedona is a relaxing prospect for anyone.
