Gain access to parts of Monument Valley you wouldn’t be able to see on your own during this Lower Monument Valley tour led by a native Navajo guide. Comfortably travel in an open-air vehicle with your guide, taking backcountry routes that are prohibited to most visitors. You’ll also see one of the valley’s largest arches on restricted land.
What to Expect
Meet for your tour in The View Hotel’s lobby in Monument Valley. Once you meet your guide, board an open-air vehicle for your guided adventure through the lower valley.

Hear stories and legends about the area as you pass sights such as Mitten Buttes, John Ford's Point, Yeibichai, Three Sisters Spires, and Elephant Butte. Since your guide is a part of the local Navajo tribe, you’ll have access to areas most regular visitors don’t get to see.

Get up close to Big Chief Monument and Sleeping Dragon Rock before moving on to one of the valley’s largest arches, Sun’s Eye, and Anasazi ruins.

If you’ve chosen to upgrade your experience, visit a Yazzie family inside a hogan (a traditional Navajo home). Learn about the culture of the Navajo people, as well as their history in the valley.

Your tour ends with a drop-off back at the lobby of The View Hotel.

A welcoming visit to home

I would not consider this a tour of the Monument Valley "Park"; rather it was a visit to sacred ground. The Din'e (Navajo) hold Monument Valley close within their hearts. Our Din'e guide, Norma, was not only friendly and and knowledgeable but her love of...More

Monument Valley

The tour really improved our visit to Monument Valley. Our guide Duffy did a great job getting us back into the canyon and showing us the Navaho hogan and back country arches and the “totem pole”. Highly recommend!

Monument Valley tour was awesome. Our guide was Bobby who was very knowledgeable about the area and customs. Going with a guide is the best way to see the Valley.

It will be quite hot and can be breezy. They do supply water but probably best to take your own. Have a breathtaking tour.
