  • Be amazed by the enormous sandstone structures of Monument Valley
  • Explore a traditional hogan with an eagle eye looking upon you
  • Marvel at the beautiful Eye of the Sun and the Ear of the Wind arches
Full description

Enter the backcountry of Monument Valley to visit the popular arches, dwellings, and petroglyphs made by the ancient Anasazi people. Stop first to admire the Sleeping Dragon with clouds above, followed by the Chief’s Head with its bonnet of feathers.  Moving on, explore the traditional dwelling of the Navajo people known as hogans. Admire the round, cone-shaped, and multi-sided structures. With or without internal posts, they were built with timber or stonewall and packed with earth or bark.

For a summerhouse, the door faces east to welcome the rising sun for wealth and good fortune. Your guide will provide information and a short demonstration of the Navajo people and their lifestyles.  Save the best for last and marvel at an arch that replicates a traditional hogan with an eagle eye looking upon you. Take a panoramic view of the Eye of the Sun, a beautifully shaped eye with sun rays beaming through it.

Last will be the Ear of the Wind, standing against a steep sand dune that, if you walk up to it, you're most likely to bring home Monument Valley's souvenir: sand in your shoes.

This trip was a last minute decision. I was able to book the night before and use my phone to show my tickets. If you already have plans to go, I would recommend booking ahead of time because signal is very spotty out and around Monument Valley. Our guy Joe was great! He had lots of interesting stories to share with us during the trip. If you are going to visit the 17 Miles, make sure to book at least one of the guided tours to get the full experience.

A really good experience ! You see SO MUCH MORE with a guide than in the 17 miles loop with your own car... The views are amazing and the explainations are very interesting. Monument Valley is way more than the loop and you need a guide to see it. I highly recommend this experience !

Very interesting tour, we were able to visit some areas of Monument Valley that cannot be visited independently. Our guide Derek perfectly explained the history, traditions and culture of the Navajo people. He answered all our questions with patience and courtesy. Recommended tour.
