Sustainable in Sedona

Wilde Sustainability

The Wilde Resort and Spa is committed to our land, air and water by inspiring a balance of experiential enjoyment and a high level awareness of how the Sedona experience impacts the natural environment, the economy and the community.  We know that what we practice and what we inspire our guests to practice matters.

Our sustainable tourism efforts are built on three pillars:

  1. Eco Tourism - A niche segment of tourism in natural areas
  2. Sustainable Tourism - This is not a specific type of tourism, rather an aspiration for the impact of all forms of tourism to be sustainable for generations to come.    
  3. Responsible Travel - This is a term referring to the behavior and style of individual travelers.

The behaviors align with making a positive impact to the destination rather than negative ones.
