Known for its stunning red rock formations, mystical energy, and artistic community, Sedona transforms into a realm of enchantment during the autumn and winter months. Tucked away in a serene oasis, The Wilde Resort & Spa offers an escape like no other, as the temperatures start to cool, and the lush foliage of Sedona explodes in a kaleidoscope of warm hues. Here’s a sampling of experiences the resort can curate for you:
Native Full Moon Drum Circle: The Native Drum Circle will coincide with celestial connections: new moon, full moon, equinox, and solstice, exclusively at The Wilde Resort & Spa. Surrounded by the serene ambiance of the resort, the dance of the flames in the fire pit complements the rhythmic beats of drums, as a Native guide shares insights into the significance of each cosmic event and its connection to the drum circle.
Explore Sedona Wine Country: Verde Valley, an up-and-coming destination for wine lovers, sits right outside Sedona, and is home to renowned wineries such as Alcantara, Page Springs, Caduceus, and Merkin. The Wilde Resort & Spa has a Wine to Water experience which includes kayaking down the Verde River to the Alcantara Vineyard for a wine tasting and picnic experience among the fall foliage.
Culinary Delights: Chef Mercer Mohr is a celebrated local chef with four award-winning restaurants in Sedona. Rascal Modern Diner at The Wilde Resort & Spa, René, Creekside American Bistro, and Mesa Grill each offer a unique culinary experience, as well as standout views of picturesque Sedona’s fall foliage.
Charms of Tlaquepaque: This quaint arts and shopping village boasts Spanish colonial architecture, charming cobblestone streets, chic local boutiques, and restaurants under the oak trees. A visit to Tlaquepaque may include live flamingo guitar concerts in the mild fall months and festive décor in the winter season including a 26-foot-tall Christmas tree and elegant light displays transporting guests into a small-town Hallmark movie.
