Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park

US Highway 160 & US Hwy 163, Oljato-Monument Valley, Arizona, 84536

The Basics

Monument Valley belongs to the Navajo Nation, and much of the area is only accessible with a visitor’s permit or with a Navajo guide, so most travelers explore the valley on a tour. Check out the famous rock features, including Mystery Valley, Tear Drop Arch, John Ford’s Point, and the Mittens; and enjoy hiking, horseback riding, and off-roading. The park also offers opportunities to learn about the Navajo; you can take a spirit and culture tour, or enjoy a traditional music performance at Big Hogan, a large natural amphitheater.

Tours of the area range from 2-hour scenic drives to multi-day adventures that include other nearby attractions and national parks. Some start in Monument Valley, while others depart from Phoenix, Flagstaff, or Sedona.

3-Day Tour: Sedona, Monument Valley, and Antelope Canyon
This was an excellent trip. We thought about renting a car and driving ourselves, but this was so much better. There was a lot of driving, but there would have been no matter what and our driver was great. We saw so much in three days, it would have been impossible to do on our own. The hotel accomodations need to be updated, but it was clean. Would definitely recommend!

Monument Valley Tour
Because of Covid, MV Park was still closed; so Monument Valley Safari Tours arranged a tour of Teardrop Arch and some ancient Navajo cave dwellings just outside the park. Our guide, Toney Begay, was excellent. Not only did he show us the sites, but shared much about the culture and sang for us. It was wonderful! I highly recommend this tour and Toney.

Sunset Tour of Monument Valley
Enjoyed the male and female hogans--very information. Along with how the Navajo sweat lodge works. The rug weaver's sharing was also very informative and my wife really is amazed by the intricacy of the work involved. Tour guide was great with sharing the Navajo values and little stories she shared as well as her own experience as a Navajo woman.

Monument Valley Backcountry Tour
I loved Marjorie as our guide with Navajo Tours. She taught us so much about the land and the culture. We were fortunate enough to see how Navajo rugs are woven...omg, so much work, spinning and making the thread from the sheep hair. Of course, the monuments themselves are breathtaking, and the open shuttle tour made us feel part of it all. Thank you to the Navajos, but not 'good-bye'....go on the tour, you'll get it.

Navajo Nation Parks and Recreation

Monument Valley isn’t the only site protected by the Navajo Nation. The 25,000-square-mile (70,000 square-km) reservation touches four states and includes the Little Colorado River, Antelope Canyon, and the Four Corners, a remote location where you can stand in the four states of Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and Utah all at once.
