Monument Valley Air and Ground Tour (MVJ)

Select Date and Travellers
3 travellers
    What to Expect
    Start your day with either prearranged hotel pickup in Phoenix (extra expense) or meet your pilot at Deer Valley Airport.

    Receive an orientation to your plane and safety briefing, then put on the provided radio headset for MP3 narration in the air. You'll fly in either a Cessna Caravan or T207, both high-wing airplanes where every passenger has a window seat with unobstructed views. Enjoy informative narration from your pilot throughout your time in the air.

    Begin with a scenic flight that takes you from Phoenix, over the Tonto National Forest and up the Verde Valley. Pass through Sedona to see its stunning Red Rock formations, then continue over the San Francisco Peaks, Painted Desert and Navajo Reservation before reaching the Grand Canyon.

    Enjoy a 20-minute overflight of the Grand Canyon, soaring just 1,000 feet above the rim, the optimal distance for taking it all in. Then fly onward to Page, Arizona, situated on Lake Powell. Stop briefly in Page, then follow the shores of Lake Powell to Rainbow Bridge and Navajo Mountain as you make your way to Monument Valley.

    Just a short drive from Monument Valley, your pilot lands at Gouldings Field, situated close to the Utah-Arizona border. Transfer to a 4-wheel drive vehicle to explore the Navajo Tribal Park by land, taking in the dramatic rock formations of the Colorado Plateau. Your Navajo guide provides insights into Navajo culture and traditions during your 1.5-hour ground tour.

    Afterward, return to Gouldings Trading Post and head into the lodge for a delicious lunch that features Navajo tacos. Have time to check out the museum or gift shop before returning to Phoenix on your plane. Your full-day tour ends with return to your starting point at the end of approximately eight hours.
