Backcountry Express

Special Tour 2 Hours 30 Minutes
Monument Valley

The Backcountry Express is a 2-hour 30-minute private Jeep tour beginning with an excursion into restricted areas of Monument Valley. Explore the area’s backroads and sacred lands with the help of our guide. Filled with traditional Navajo & American Southwest stories & history. We’ll make stops to see ancient petroglyphs, arches, & more. This bouncy tour is great for kids & adults. Also for photographers if hiking or horseback is inconvenient or an issue.

The Backcountry Express is almost 3 times the stops than the 1 hour horseback tour. The bliss of traveling to remote locations, seeing a lot in little time & taking home memories of the iconic West is our mission. Like American Hollywood film star John Wayne once said, Monument Valley is “where God put the West.”
