  • Scenic Nature Tours Near Sedona

    Our classic FP7 locomotives, 2 of only 10 still in existence today, pull you along a red rock valley teaming with wildlife that is so picturesque and verdant, it’s no wonder they call it Verde Canyon. People who have visited Sedona, AZ know it’s one of the world’s most beautiful places and that its beauty comes from the natural surroundings. Verde Canyon Railroad gives you an exclusive look at what Sedona and the Verde Valley would have been like before all the people, construction, and traffic got in the way of the beauty. Watch from your window or the open air viewing cars as bald eagles, blue heron, and 74 other species of animals fly, swim, and interact in the picturesque setting they were meant to occupy.

    As if our daily 3.5-hour trips up the Canyon weren’t fun enough, our special events really make for an experience your friends and family won’t soon forget. In fact, our events sell out regularly and many of our guests are return visitors from all over the world.
