The awe-inspiring scenery of red rock formations and desert views draws nature lovers to the enchanting town of Sedona like a moth to a flame. Of course, there are several ways to enjoy the region with up-close views. Road trips are a common option if you want to drive through but that can only get you as close as the roadways will allow. Hot air balloons are a popular activity if you want to view it all from above. Horseback tours are also available. And, of course, there are dozens of hiking trails if you are physically fit and ready to tackle the rugged terrain. However, at Go GlobeHopper, we think a jeep tour is the best way to explore the area, and one of the best companies to go with is Pink Jeep®.
This exciting journey comes with a knowledgeable tour guide and a signature ‘pink’ Jeep that will take you on a fun-filled and memorable exploration of Sedona’s high desert. Fifteen different tours are offered that incorporate different routes, destinations, price points, and tour times. If you have only a few hours to spare, tours ranging from 1.5 to two, three and four hours are available that offer a mix of adventurous thrill rides or easy drives and explore everything from ancient ruins to beautiful vistas throughout Broken Arrow, Diamond Gulch, Coyote Canyons, and the Scenic Rim. Hold on tight as the driver safely winds his way through rocky canyons and spires, with planned photo opportunities at the most picturesque locations. Among the scenery, watch for several native animals that call the area home, including Coues Whitetail Deer, Mule Deer, Grey Fox, Coyotes, Javelina, Desert Bobcat, Black Bear, rattlesnakes, and a wide variety of birds.
If you have medical issues and are concerned about the rocky ride in a jeep, the company also offers a specialty vehicle they call The PanoramaVan. This mini-tour bus does not venture off the pavement and features a glass roof and sides for 360 viewings, with a climate-controlled cabin. In good weather, The PanoramaVan’s glass enclosure can be removed, opening it up so guests can enjoy the fresh air and take even better photos.
Just to give visitors even more options, some tours combine a Jeep excursion with a hiking trip, one combines a high desert drive with a vineyard tour and wine tasting at Page Springs Cellars, and one offers a 10-hour customized van tour (Mercedes Sprinter) that takes guests to historical landmarks and lookout points at the Grand Canyon.
No matter which option you choose, Pink Jeep Tours will leave you with lasting memories, and likely enough photos to wallpaper your home. So be sure to take an extra memory card for your phone or camera.
