Made famous by its sandstone buttes, Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park straddles the border of northeastern Arizona and southeastern Utah. Established in 1956, the park strives to preserve the Navajo way of life and features an otherworldly landscape of rugged sandstone hills and soaring rock spires. The protected park lies within a Navajo reservation near a small town of Goulding, which once served as a trading post. Start your exploration at the visitor center, where you can check for current road conditions, arrange for guided four-wheel drive or horseback tours of the valley, and try authentic Navajo cuisine. As you drive up to the visitor center, keep an eye out for roadside stands selling Navajo arts and crafts.

  • Fantastic Park. Words cannot describe the emotions and amazement that you try visiting this place. Cross the threshold of the Park allows you to enter another world, out of time. We did the tour of the park with our car, but you can also participate in jeep tour organized. All information is available at the visitor center, which also features a very nice gift shop. The driving tour takes about 3 hours, but the duration is variable depending on stops that you make to take pictures (hundreds!). Every corner of the Park is breathtaking. We also took a tour on horseback for 2 hours: a magnificent experience, allowing you to immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the "wild west"! The horses are very docile, suitable also for beginners. I highly recommend you stay at The hotel The View (it is necessary to book well in advance).
