WHERE & WHEN WE GO
Where do the Nature Adventures take place?
Each day we explore a different canyon near Sedona. The ancient gorges offer 1000-year-old Indian ruins, streams with huge flat red rocks for meditation, natural swimming holes, sacred spring-fed pools, abundant wildlife, shady trees, towering cliffs and lush meadows.
Do you go to the famous Sedona vortexes?
Yes. However, our most popular adventures are at powerful vortex centers that aren’t on the tourist maps. We use the healing and transformational energy of the vortex energy that flows for miles throughout the entire Sedona area to your advantage. We go to unique sacred places where you can enjoy privacy—where few or no people wander—and thus, more deeply experience the vortex energy!
We’re very familiar with and delighted to take you to the famous vortexes (Bell Rock, Airport Vortex, Boynton Canyon, Cathedral Rock/Red Rock Crossing) if you don’t mind the crowds. (Over 4 million people visit Sedona each year)
What are vortexes?
Vortex sites are locations having energy flows that the Soul can explore and expand into. Vortex sites are enhanced energy locations that facilitate prayer, meditation, mind-body healing, and exploring your relationship with your Soul and the Divine. You may experience energy that helps you soar to higher spiritual perspectives. You may experience blending with the Universe, feeling one with the Divine, or viewing your life challenges from the Soul perspective. You may experience energy that helps you go inward to discover more about your life purpose or how to heal the past hurts.
What time of the year can I come?
Anytime. Every season of the year has its own special beauty, unique qualities, advantages and opportunities. Wildlife is abundant all year round. In the summer, we explore higher, cooler elevations than in the spring and fall.
Are you open every day of the year?
Yes, you can take an exciting Sedona Adventure any day of the year, even on holidays.
Can I come on a weekend?
Yes, weekend days work fine. And we suggest weekdays only because there are a lot fewer people in the canyons during the week.
