Sedona is the perfect place for a solo journey, featuring breath-taking natural wonders, a mystical ambiance, and plenty of Sedona activities that can be enjoyed by yourself or open up doors to meeting new friends. The sunny streets offer lots to explore on your own, from local shops selling handmade goods to hidden cafes off the beaten path. And with so much to do, there’s a number of reputable tour companies that you can go on an adventure with and connect with fellow travelers along the way. Once you’ve had a solo journey in Sedona, you’ll realize what solo traveling is all about!
Discover Stunning Red Rock Vistas
The nature of Sedona is unlike most places in the world, with striking red rocks, high-desert cacti, pockets of vibrant green and pine forests, multiple creeks and secret swimming spots, and hikes that will make you feel like you’ve landed on Mars. The popular trails are well worn and safe for a solo traveler, but you’ll find lesser-known spots that you can still embark on a solo adventure to!
Spend the Day Lounging by the Creek
Bell Trail will take you along the winding Wet Beaver Creek to a well-known, oddly shaped swimming hole aptly nicknamed “the crack”—but to find a secret spot of your own, try driving up Oak Creek Canyon and parking at designated areas with a $5 Red Rock Parking Pass that you can purchase at local gas stations. From there, venture to the creek to find your own little slice of paradise; lounging on the creek is one of the best Sedona activities to enjoy!
Explore Sedona’s Quirky Shops and Art Districts
Sedona has a reputation for its cosmic energy, and you can experience a piece of that visiting unique shops like Crystal Magic or the Mystical Bazaar, selling handmade jewelry, incense, spiritual books, and of course, crystals. You can even book a tarot card, psychic, or energy reading if you want to really get in touch with your mystical side! Tlaquepaque Arts and Shopping village boasts a number of galleries exploring nearly every type of art and features beautiful Spanish Colonial style architecture—sunny courtyards, little patios, tiled walls, and fountains—as well as specialty shops, and restaurants. It’s the perfect place to wander on your own for the afternoon, or at night when twinkling little white lights illuminate the courtyards, making you feel like you’ve been transported to another place entirely!
