Full description
Embark on the tour of a lifetime as you soar above Monument Valley with plenty of opportunities for spectacular photography. 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 upon cliffs, canyons, mesas, and desert scrublands that have been home to generations of Native Americans. After a brief touch down, the famous Mittens, and other well-known features of the Monument will be explored from the air.

Monument Valley was first made internationally famous by the 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. From the air, enjoy sights that very few have seen as you gain a greater appreciation of their improbable beauty. The entire tour provides a splendid overview of a vast area that could take years to explore on foot. The wonders of its diverse geology and human history will give you enduring memories that will last a lifetime.
