Sedona vortexes are thought to be swirling centers of energy that are conducive to healing, meditation and self-exploration. These are places where the earth seems especially alive with energy. Crystals and other earth minerals interact with the metals and properties in our own bodies to promote healing and raised energy vibrations. Many people feel inspired, recharged or uplifted after visiting a vortex. 

Grand Canyon Day Trip:

The South Rim of the Grand Canyon is only a 2 hour drive North of Sedona. Spend the day exploring one of the greatest wonders of the modern world!

Our helicopter tour departs from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon taking you over the beautiful Kaibab National Forest, home to the world's largest ponderosa pine forest. Upon reaching the edge of the canyon, the South Rim gently drops away as the North Rim and Eastern end of the canyon come into view - one of the most spectacular views in the entire canyon.

In the distance, it is possible to see the Painted Desert and the Desert View Watchtower designed by the Hopi Indians. Your journey continues as you follow the Colorado River upstream to where it merges with the Little Colorado River.

View Marble Canyon and Point Imperial as you fly through the canyon and climb above the North Rim. Experience fabulous bird's-eye views once on the North Rim, and then head South through the Dragon Corridor, the widest and deepest part of the canyon.

As you cross over the Colorado River, you'll fly over the South Rim and the Kaibab National Forest landing back at the Grand Canyon Airport. This Grand Canyon tour will provide you with memories of a lifetime!

Camp Avalon:

The sacred lands of Camp Avalon have historically been used for organic gardening and community development. Now, these beautiful and rural lands are often the destination location for campers and those seeking spiritual retreat in the heart of one of Sedona's most pristine natural habitats. Enjoy hiking trails and swimming with private access to Oak Creek.
