Details

Your adventure begins at the Navajo Welcome Center, where you meet up with your Navajo guide. You climb into a Jeep and set out to explore this mythical land of buttes and mesas.

In addition to admiring viewpoints accessible to the public, such as John Ford Point, your guide will take you off the beaten track. You will also have the chance to visit a traditional Navajo hogan (dwelling) made from juniper logs and packed red earth: warm in winter and cool in summer.

After taking dozens of photos along the way, you will be treated to a cultural demonstration by none other than your guide! This will vary depending on the guide's particular talents: singing, flute, dancing, etc.

At sundown, after enjoying a typical Navajo meal, share unforgettable moments around a campfire, to the sound of distant coyotes.

Then you make your way to the camp where you spend the night in a hogan.

In the morning, you have the chance to watch the sun rise over Totem Pole: a truly breathtaking sight! 

After a light breakfast, your guide will escort you to your vehicle. You're sure to leave with a heavy heart and lasting memories!

Only do the 4x4 tour

Veronique Bart Monday August 29, 2022

(Translated by Google) Guided by a Navajo guide. Group of 14 for our 2h30 4x4 tour. Very interesting, the guide provides us with lots of information on their history, on the park. He makes regular stops for photos, really great.
On the other hand, the sequel deteriorates. Very frugal meal (we are hungry at the end of the meal), we find ourselves with about fifty tourists to eat. Follows a demonstration of Indian dance (our guide has put on a traditional costume), it's really embarrassing, we didn't appreciate it at all. And then towards the Hogan. We find ourselves sleeping on the earthen floor, with just a small carpet, in a sleeping bag that is not clean, and in addition, we share the night with another family. The toilets are nothing. And when we wake up, one of us finds himself in the charming company of a scorpion.
In short, the first part in 4x4 is really great. the rest we can do without.

Highlight of our trip

(Translated by Google) The end of the day and dawn tour of the desert, the meal and the night in a hogan will remain highlights, especially when our guide has started the Indian songs and dances
