Monument Valley Tours & Holidays

Our Monument Valley Tours

Discover one of the most iconic landscapes in North America on a tour of Monument Valley. Situated in Southwestern USA on the Arizona - Utah border, Monument Valley is known for its bright red spindles, grand buttes and towering sandstone mesas. Don’t miss the opportunity to channel your inner Clint Eastwood and set foot on this landscape that accentuates everything we know and love about Spaghetti Western movies.

With its isolated mesas and buttes towering as high as 1,000 feet above sea level, these unique sandstone formations located within the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park are every photographers dream. Wherever you stand and whatever time you visit  on your Monument Valley tour you are never far away from the perfect photo opportunity. For one of the most dramatic sunrises you will ever experience, head to Totem Pole a 450ft tall butte, and for the ultimate sunset head to Mitten View. As the sun rises and sets over the horizon, watch on as the pink and white-hued rocks change colour and the light dances amongst the buttes and mesas.

Monument Valley Tour Highlights

  • Navajo back roads tour - The best way to experience this special place is on a Navajo guided tour where you will be taken to parts of the park that you can only reach by jeep. Listen to traditional stories and learn more about the history of the Navajo Nation as you view geological wonders & petroglyph drawings.
  • Overnight in a Navajo Hogan - A Navajo Hogan is an authentic, traditional Navajo home, made out of natural resources such as desert juniper trees and red desert earth, plastered over a dome-shape structure, similar to that of an igloo. This is a very unique Monument Valley tour experience as you share in the fascinating Navajo way of life.
  • Movie Scene locations - It was most definitely John Ford who brought Monument Valley to the world through the Western movies he directed. Forrest Gump was also filmed in the area and tourists can often be seen recreating the famous cross-country running scene with Monument Valley as the backdrop.

Best time to visit Monument Valley?

Expect a lot of sun and plenty of dry heat where temperatures rise to almost 40C during the summer and then dramatically fall to below zero in the winter months. Cooler temperatures and fewer visitors make spring and autumn the ideal time to visit on your Monument Valley tour, however the winter season just as spectacular. In the winter months it’s not uncommon to see snow fall at Monument Valley, which makes for some incredible photo opportunities.
