This flight to Monument Valley is the tour of a lifetime! Opportunities for spectacular photography abound. Fly south from Moab to the Navajo Tribal Park of Monument Valley, into the heart of the Grand Circle and Four Corners. On the way, see Canyonlands National Park, Dark Canyon Wilderness Area, Natural Bridges National Monument, Cedar Mesa/Grand Gulch, and Valley of the Gods. Look down on cliffs, canyons, mesas, and desert scrub that have been home to generations of ancient and modern Native Americans. After a brief touch down, the famous Mittens and other well-known features will be explored from the air. It’s truly the best way to see Monument Valley.
Monument Valley was first made internationally famous by John Wayne movies filmed in the area. Over 130 cinema and television productions have featured its compelling scenery, among them Stagecoach, Rio Grande , 2001: A Space Odyssey, Easy Rider, Wind Talkers, and Mission: Impossible II. These films have been widely viewed, making the park a major tourist attraction, but from the air; you will enjoy the sights that very few have seen and gain a greater appreciation of their improbable beauty. The entire Monument Valley air tour provides a splendid overview of a vast area that could take years to explore. The wonders of its diverse geology and human history are the material of enduring memories!
