Canyon de Chelly, in Northeastern Arizona is a breathtaking site in the heart of the Navajo Nation. There are: Rock Arches and Spires, mysterious Petroglyphs and Rock Art; and multi-storied Anasazi Ruins tucked into the sheer sandstone walls.
Most of the Canyon is restricted access, but with our Navajo guides and permits for the week, we'll be able to go everywhere as a group.
You'll be inspired by: Sheer Rock Walls towering above ancient cottonwood trees; the Bluest of Skies mirrored in the murmuring stream that runs the length of the canyon; and Navajo Hogans and cornfields dotting the canyon floor. Camping in the Canyon itself, we will enjoy spectacular Sunsets and Sunrises. Evenings are spent around a campfire hearing Navajo tales and sharing the days' experiences.

Meals will be home-cooked, on site and will be fresh, hearty, and delicious. Our schedule will be to awaken to the smell of camp coffee, followed by a hearty breakfast.

"Getting to know the Native Americans was the best part of the trip for me.
I had never been around Indians before. Our guides did all the cooking.
Our guides, know every inch of the canyon
and took special delight in taking us off the beaten path.
The children playing around the campfire, while the adults made meals, were a delight."

"The food as wonderful ! All home-cooked and fresh.
Some things I don't normally eat, such as made from scratch home fries
- were delicious! and there was always fresh fruit and salads.
I especially loved the Traditional Feast on the last night.
A turkey is slowly roasted in hot coals all day - unbelievably good."

"Seeing the stars at night woke up a part of me I had forgotten about."

“This is truly the most beautiful Canyon in the West, and, what a
privilege to actually stay in the canyon for an entire week with
all outfitting and meals taken care of. The sunsets were not optional!”
