Sedona’s human history begins at about 9000 B.C. where this naturally breathtaking area continues to see the footfall of many Indigenous peoples including the Hopi, Apache, and Pueblo. Even today, the many caves and the vast desert tell their stories. Traveling in Sedona is like traveling back in time. It is famous for the red rock formations in the desert that seem to glow when the sun hits them. The most popular formation is the bell rock that is located south of the Sedona ‘Vortex’. It is also the most photographed area in the American southwest. The beauty of the red rocks and the seclusion of the desert along with its little brooks and creeks make for a spectacular natural region. And there are plenty of amazing things to do in Sedona, such as exploring its top scenic drives and dining at the best places to eat.

The only way to truly experience Sedona is by living in the lap of nature. Glamping is the perfect way to do that without giving up on the luxuries of home life. In Sedona, you get access to some unique accommodations where you can live in the caves of the land’s ancestors, or lie underneath the star-studded sky and wake up to the red rocks glowing in the sunrise. For the best experience, check out these top spots for glamping in Sedona, Arizona.

1. Many eclectic options to choose from (from USD 390)

This eight-acre property just before Sedona is the perfect place for glamping in Arizona because of the wide array of options available. You can choose to live like the native American Indians in a large cave, stay in the ‘tree cocoon’ hanging from the trees, relax on the creek itself, or get a bird’s eye view from right on top of the rim. The cave is outfitted with two cozy double beds with flannel sheets and electric blankets. There’s also a firewood stove for extra warmth. Though the property is not generally suited for pets, the yurt is. There is also a bubble near Rim Rock, hidden in the forest. Its glass ceiling allows you to sleep under the stars and wake up to the glorious sunrise. There is truly no other spot as fascinating as this where you can experience nature from up close without giving up the luxuries of home life.
