Some Sedona tour companies don't provide sleeping bags, sleeping pads, backpacks and other items, or they charge "gear rental" fees for use of these items - on our trips those items are fully included in the trip price. What about meals, permit fees and transportation fees? All totally included.

"Everything about this trip was first class! This was our first time booking with Wildland Trekking and we didn't really know what to expect. We chose the 4-day Sedona and Grand Canyon lodge tour. Each day was better than the previous. The food and snacks provided during the day were great and plentiful, and the dining selections at the end of each day, along with the lodging chosen for us, were all unique and amazing. And I cannot sing enough praises for our guide, Crystal. She was extremely knowledgeable on all of the areas we hiked, and she was both professional and personable. Thanks again Crystal!! We hope to see you again soon on another great adventure with Wildland Trekking." - John B.

"If you are going to guided hike in Sedona, choose Wildland. If you want THE expert, request Mikaela. They literally call her Ms. Sedona?!! I'm so happy that we booked our trip through Wildland with her! There is NO way that we could have enjoyed and learned as much as we did without the guidance." - Raza H.

"Mikaela was a fantastic guide!!" - Lily D.

Why a Guided Hiking Tour in Sedona?

Sedona offers so much in the way of scenic vistas, amazing hiking trails, natural and cultural history, and wonderful lodging and camping. The vast majority of visitors, though, barely scratch the surface of all there is to do and enjoy in Sedona. Beyond the gift shops and off the 4x4 roads though is a vast wilderness with stunning red rock country views, ancient footsteps and remnants of creatures and humans alike, soaring buttes, sandstone towers, spring-fed creeks and more. Our Sedona hiking vacation packages allow you to show up, have an extraordinary experience of all Sedona has to offer, and be able to focus 100% on the experience, while we take care of everything else!

Which Sedona Hiking Vacation Package Should I Go With?

We offer two inn-based hiking tours that showcase the splendor of Sedona's red rock country, while also providing a high level of luxury and comfort at a hand-picked lodge that perfectly reflects the local color of Sedona. One of the tours, Red Rock Adventurer, focuses 100% on the Sedona area, while the other, Grand Canyon & Sedona Tour, combines the best of Arizona all into one tour. We also offer a basecamp hiking tour that features wonderful camping along spring-fed waters of Oak Creek along with fantastic hikes and great outdoor cooking.

What Time of Year Should I Hike Sedona?

A Sedona hiking vacation is a great choice year round, as each season offers a different flavor. Spring is wonderful with springs and creeks flowing more fully, and the temperatures perfect for hiking and sleeping. Summer can be hot, but the afternoon thunderstorms offer exceptional skies for amazing photography and scenery. Fall is a wonderful time of year in Sedona with, like spring, perfect hiking and sleeping temperatures. Winter is exquisite in Northern Arizona with zero crowds and white snow capping the red rock formations.
