Mystical and majestic, Sedona casts a spell with its fiery rock formulations, steep canyons, energy vortexes, and pine forests. This hallowed landscape attracts four million people each year—more than half seeking spiritual transformation. Not surprisingly, it has become a hotbed of New Age healing with many wellness-oriented outposts like crystal shops, aura readers, yoga studios, and holistic spas. Try the creekside reflexology treatment at L’Auberge de Sedona or the sacred stone massage at Kimpton Amara Resort & Spa.
In case you were curious, this Sedona road trip is as magical as everyone says it is.
