The Best Way to Experience the Canyon

The total distance traveled is 32 miles on the canyon floor in a 4x4 vehicle with a guide. The tour includes Antelope House Ruin in Canyon del Muerto and the White House Ruin in Canyon de Chelly along with many other archaeological sites. You may also see Kokopelli Cave, Petroglyph Rock, First Ruin, Junction Ruin, Ceremonial Cave, and Ledge Ruin. The itinerary may change based on the canyon conditions or if guests linger longer than recommended along the tour route.

We know the canyon inside and out, so we can show you the rich archaeology, geology, culture, and history that Canyon de Chelly has to offer. We want to get to know your interests and make your experience an unforgettable one! We can recommend great sites or take your requests. If you would like to keep exploring, we can extend your tour for an additional fee. There are restroom facilities in the canyon.
