Board your tour vehicle upon pickup from your accommodation in Sedona. Your day trip to Grand Canyon National Park begins with a scenic drive up Oak Creek Canyon via a National Scenic Byway. The road winds through pine forests en route to Flagstaff, with the option of hotel pickup there.

Entering the park on the western side of the South Rim, you're treated to sweeping views of the Grand Canyon, Bright Angel fault line, and the Colorado River at Yavapai Point. After a lingering glimpse and plenty of photo ops from the park's widest overlook, it's time for lunch at the Maswick Lodge. 

Afterward, you'll have time to explore Grand Canyon Village, the Historic District at the South Rim which includes the historical El Tovar Hotel, the Pueblo replica of Hopi House, art exhibits at Kolb Studio, and more. Take a walk along the canyon rim and search for giant California condors that call this area home. 

Your tour vehicle continues eastward along the South Rim, stopping at Lipan Point to take in the vastness of the canyon. You'll find dramatic views from a variety of perspectives both inside and outside the Desert View Watchtower, designed by architect Mary Colter. 

For an even more spectacular experience, opt for a 30-minute scenic helicopter flight over the Grand Canyon.

Departing the national park alongside the Little Colorado River Gorge, you'll see more impressive views on a drive through the Navajo Nation en route to the historical Cameron Trading Post, known for its outstanding selection of American Indian arts and crafts. The cliffs of the Painted Desert provide a picturesque backdrop for this scenic stop before drop-off at your hotel in Flagstaff or Sedona.
