Exploring Monument Valley in the Winter


Many people dream of a relaxing winter getaway, but may be struggling to come up with somewhere unique to go. Instead of taking a traditional escape to a tropical location, visit Monument Valley for a vacation you will never forget. Top reasons to explore this incredibly picturesque destination this winter include:

1. Fewer Tourists

If you don’t mind cooler temperatures, visiting popular destinations like Monument Valley during the winter months can be a smart strategy for avoiding crowds and lines. You’ll be able to book reservations without delays, and you’ll never have to worry about availability of your desired tours or hotel room. And, as a bonus, there are fewer insects around during the winter as well.

2. Incredible Photo Opportunities

Monument Valley is a popular destination among both amateur and professional photographers because there are breathtaking views everywhere you look. Dramatic, wind-sculpted sandstone formations and stunning desert vistas characterize this Navajo tribal park. When you visit in the winter, you can line up the perfect shot without many other visitors in the way, then sit back and watch your Instagram likes add up.

3. An Active Vacation

It can be tempting to be more sedentary in the winter. However, winter exercise provides a boost to your physical and mental health. Being outside, surrounded by natural beauty, staves off seasonal affective disorder and strengthens your immune system. Planning a visit to Monument Valley is an excellent way to ensure you burn plenty of calories while you’re having fun. Our tours offer a variety of hikes for different fitness levels.
