Oak Creek Canyon, AZ

The Basics

A scenic drive through beautiful Oak Creek Canyon is well worth the effort whether or not you actually need to travel north from Sedona. Grand Canyon day trips from Sedona pass through the gorge, as do small-group tours of the Sedona area (along with visits to the Chapel of the Holy Cross, Bell Rock, Cathedral Rock, and Airport Mesa) and multi-day itineraries through Arizona.

Grand Canyon Day Tour with Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon
Zane was a great tour guide and was knowledgeable about AZ and the canyon. The views were awesome and I thoroughly enjoyed hiking part of the way down the canyon. Our guide had safety tips and did not lose anyone on the tour. We made plenty of bathroom and rest breaks which was greatly appreciated. Would recommend this tour and experience to others.

The tour leader was knowledgable, entertaining and focused on safety throughout. We never felt rushed and had ample time in both areas. The experience at the Grand Canyon and Sedona was breathtaking. Plenty of rest/bathroom stops along the way. Exceeded my expectations

A good tour to visit some beauties of Grand Canyon and Sedona

Grand Canyon Day Tour with Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon
A friendly tour guide, and good spots to visit in Arizona. However the time for the tour was short. Making it 14 hours and adding one more stop in Grand Canyon would make it better.

Grand Canyon Day Tour with Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon
Seeing the Grand Canyon was an amazing experience. We had no idea how vast this area is. Zack provided lots of information during the whole trip which made this a great trip. Would have like to spend a little more time in Sedona because there is so much to see there. We are planning additional trips to spend more time in this area of Arizona!

Tyson made the whole trip fun and is very knowledgeable. He knows the area through and through and you would not regret this trip. I would say if you have never been to Canyon or if you have, still book a ride with him and you will learn a lot and have a great experience.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Oak Creek Canyon is a must-see for outdoor enthusiasts, adventure travelers, and photographers.

  • Plan ahead: The drive is lovely but there aren’t many places to pull off and enjoy the scenery.

  • Be sure to bring along sun protection and plenty of drinking water, as it’s easy to get dehydrated in the arid climate.

  • Wear comfortable shoes suitable for walking over uneven surfaces if you plan to get out of the car and explore.

When to Get There

Oak Creek Canyon is stunning year-round, so deciding when to visit is largely a matter of preference. Hikers come to enjoy the desert wildflowers from March to May, while summer brings temperatures warm enough for swimming at Slide Rock State Park or Grasshopper Point. The canyon is particularly impressive in autumn when the oaks amid the evergreen forest display their fall foliage.
