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
Chris was our guide and he was excellent. Very personable and knowledgeable. We were delayed in entering the canyon which pushed back our schedule but he made sure we had enough time at each stop. It is a long day but well worth it. Besides Sedona and the Grand Canyon we encountered beautiful scenery on our drive. Van was clean and comfortable. Highly recommend.

Grand Canyon Day Tour with Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon
It was worth the drive to see the majestic views of the Grand Canyon! The tour through Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon were also amazing! Our guide Taylor shared tons of stories with the group about the history, the native plant life/cacti varieties, pointed out wildlife and the different mountains we were seeing. It was a rather long day in the van, but Taylor did a great job at making sure everyone had a great experience and stopped whenever someone needed.

Grand Canyon Day Tour with Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon
Our canyon day trip was absolutely amazing!! Taylor was such a great guide and he took us around at a speed that was comfortable for everyone in the group. He was so friendly and knowledgeable about Arizona, the canyon, and everything in-between. We had plenty of time at each of the 3 canyon viewing areas, and saw beautiful wildlife too. 10 stars!! I highly recommend this tour.

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.

How to Get There

Arizona State Route 89A runs through Oak Creek Canyon from Sedona to just outside Flagstaff. Driving allows for the chance to stop at your leisure to take in the natural beauty, while a guided day tour around Sedona or to the Grand Canyon eliminates the hassle of having to rent a car.

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.
