Monument Valley Navajo Nation Park Custom Tours
spectacular tour to the awe-inspiring Monument Valley follows a route
portions of the Painted Desert and the Navajo Indian Reservation.
At Monument Valley one sees huge animal shapes, castles, and high pinnacles
at every turn of the road. The desolation and expanse of this place
gives you a strong feeling of time standing still. Many artists,
photographers and movies starring actors like John Wayne, Jimmy
and, most recently, Tom Hanks as Forest Gump, have captured the beauty
of Monument Valley. As we approach the famous Goulding Lodge
you will begin to see massive sandstone sculptures rise from the
floor. The otherworldly experience of Monument Valley is one
you'll treasure for years to come.
Your adventure includes a 17-mile tour through the valley with stops at all the historic and scenic views.
Optional four-wheel drive tours are available with a Navajo guide into the back country where you can see a number of Natural Arches, Petroglyphs and ancient Anasazi dwellings only accessible on this guided tour. Another option available is a horseback ride into Monument Valley, also with a Navajo guide. Longer trail rides and back country photo tours are also available if you have more than one day available for a tour to Monument Valley.
