Designing Your Journey
Work with Indagare to design the perfect itinerary for an immersive journey. Our travel experts know the destination inside and out, and they can make recommendations based on your travel needs and preferences.
5 Days: Essential Arizona
From desert landscapes to breathtaking red rock canyons, an Arizona itinerary is all about the great outdoors with special access. Here is just one example of what our destination experts can create for you.
Day 1-2: The Grand Canyon
The Grand Canyon is a quintessential American destination and one of the Seven Wonders of the World. You can plan to drive a few hours from your base at a luxury hotel to see the majestic site, or you can hike down into the canyon if you are seeking adventure and can spend the night on the bottom. Either way, visitors will be humbled by the experience of one of the most beautiful natural landscapes in the world.
Day 3-4: Sedona
After hiking and a two-hour drive to Sedona, you may want to enjoy the pool at your hotel or book a series of treatments at the acclaimed Mii amo spa. If you’re up for more hiking, a great trail is Bear Mountain. For sunset, your hotel can pack you a wine and cheese picnic for your walk up to Doe Mountain, a high, flat plateau with exquisite views. You can also enjoy your time in Sedona exploring the busy town center.
Day 5: Phoenix
Drive two hours to Phoenix to see Arizona’s capital. Frank Lloyd Wright fans can visit Taliesin West; you can learn more about Native American history at the Heard Museum; or you can tour the wonderful Desert Botanic Garden. Phoenix has a few terrific restaurants, so you can enjoy an early dinner at one of Indagare’s favorites before wrapping up your southwestern road trip and heading home.
