Coyote Canyons Tour Details
Coyote Canyons is a consistently well-regarded tour that serves as a good overview of all that the greater Sedona area has to offer. The tour begins at Pink Jeep Plaza in the heart of Sedona; or, for this particular tour, if you are staying at a local hotel or resort, you may request to be picked up. Your ride, of course, will be one of Pink Adventure Tours’ iconic, custom-built pink Jeep Wranglers. Your informative guide will take you through picturesque Sedona, pointing out all the most famous red-rock formations and popular attractions. You’ll also get a taste of the wonders to be found in Coconino National Forest, the remarkable stretch of pristine land that surrounds Sedona. As you leave town to explore this natural landscape—often driving along scenic Vultee Arch Road—you never know what sort of off-road trails you’ll go down, or wildlife you’ll encounter. The Coyote Canyons tour is a 2-hour-long excursion. Pink Adventure Tours typically offers Coyote Canyons 10 times a day; it runs every hour, on-the-hour, between 7:00am and 4:00pm. Tour tickets usually run around $75 per person for adults, and nearly $70 for children under the age of 12 years old.
Major Highlights from Coyote Canyons
Sedona: This beautiful town, set among the stunning red rocks of north-central Arizona, is world-famous for its lovely landscapes. The Coyote Canyons tour takes you in and around Sedona, offering you terrific views of such acclaimed attractions as Boynton Canyon, Bear Mountain, Doe Mesa, and many, many more.
Van Deren Cabin: Found just a few miles north of Sedona, the Van Deren Cabin is an important piece of local history. Originally constructed in the early 20th Century by new settlers to the region, it served as the site of the classic 1948 western Blood on the Moon that starred Robert Mitchum.
Dry Creek: Your tour will likely take you through the Dry Creek area, which consists of a streambed surrounded by numerous examples of wildlife native to Arizona. In particular, you’ll want to keep your eyes alert for everything from coyotes to javelinas and more.
Coconino National Forest: Again, one of the really neat things about the Coyote Canyons tour is that while it does have a series of customary stops it makes, guides on this excursion are also encouraged to put their local knowledge to use by exploring many of the lesser-known nooks and crannies of this endlessly fascinating area. Thus, as you drive around Coconino National Forest, you never quite know what you’ll see or how many adventures you’ll encounter! Sit back, enjoy the ride, and take it all in.
