Overview
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.

I would say somewhere in the 40's for the high and the low-mid 20's. It can be windy so wear something for protection. Have fun!
