Canyon de Chelly National Monument in Arizona (Four Corners Area) is one of the jewels of the Navajo Nation and home to many different clans of the Diné (Navajo People).  Past and present are interwoven in Canyon de Chelly


Footpath Journeys of Canyon de Chelly offers various tours of the canyons’ treasures. Accessibility to the park is limited without an authorized Navajo guide.


On our day hikes or camping trips, we'll see hogans, sweat lodges, sheep and horses and explore the vast richness of the many ancient ruins nestled in the canyon and well as the abundance of fascinating rock art that dots the glorious textures of the towering walls of Canyon de Chelly.
