Private Grand Canyon Driving Tour

The Grand Canyon is one of the most iconic natural wonders in the world. But how you see it makes a difference. At Sedona Philosophy we’ve designed a completely unique tour that helps you understand why encounters with nature are profound and meaningful experiences. 

For most people, a visit to this awe-inspiring location is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. This is a unique and unforgettable way to experience the Grand Canyon, from Sedona.

A philosophical tour of the Grand Canyon is not your typical tour. Of course we explain the history, geology, and wildlife of the area, but a philosophy tour takes a more thoughtful and contemplative approach. The tour is led by a trained philosopher who will guide you through a series of thought experiments and dialogs designed to help you connect with the natural world and reflect on your place in it.

One of the benefits of taking a private tour is that you can customize the experience to meet your needs and interests. You can choose to linger at particular viewpoints, take a short or longer walk along the rim, and the conversation will be shaped to meet your individual interests.   

Whether you are interested in mindfulness and want to find a quiet space for meditation, or if you want to talk about big ideas like ethics and our place in nature, we will help create a meaningful experience for you.

The tour starts in beautiful Sedona and climbs up through picturesque Oak Creek Canyon until you reach the southern edge of the Colorado Plateau. You’ll pass Flagstaff’s iconic San Francisco Peaks, and travel through Coconino and Kaibab National Forests to reach Grand Canyon National Park. Once you arrive at the Grand Canyon, you’ll stop at various viewpoints and learn about the natural features of the canyon and how they relate to philosophical wonder and aesthetic experience.

The tour may include discussions on topics such as:

  • How the Grand Canyon can inspire us to find purpose and meaning
  • The concept of beauty, the sublime and how the landscapes of Sedona and the Grand Canyon affect us in different ways
  • The role of public lands in conservation and preservation, and how we can act as stewards of the environment even as we enjoy ourselves 
  • The role of perspective and how the Grand Canyon can change the way we view our daily lives and place in the world and universe

At the end of the tour, you’ll have a deeper appreciation of the Grand Canyon and its significance, as well as a greater understanding of yourself and your place in the world.

The key thing is that no two tours are the same, and your experience will be designed just for you. Something as special as the Grand Canyon should be something that you connect with personally and create an experience that you will remember for a lifetime.

A private philosophy tour of the Grand Canyon is a unique and enriching way to experience one of the world’s most incredible natural wonders. Whether you’re interested in philosophy or just want to connect with nature on a deeper level, this tour is sure to be an unforgettable experience.
