Cathedral Canyon Guided Tour – Start with a check in at the Chief Tsosie Trading Post on Main Street. From here you will be driven in comfort aboard a State of the Art 8 Passenger Ford Excursions equipped with Heaters and Air Conditioning and Lifted for a smoother experience. (This is the High Desert so conditions can vary drastically so please dress appropriately.) This is a more personal tour so you will have time to hike and explore the area. Please note that this hike can be a little more physical as there will be a One Mile round trip hike. Depending on the time of year this can become very demanding.
Maybe you’re just looking for a pleasant isolated area to take a nature hike, or a setting to take photographs without too many people around. Try the rugged beauty of the grand majestic Cathedral Canyon! Your guide will point out various facts about the animal life in the area and the native plants once used by their ancestors long ago and what the local Navajo people still use today. You will also appreciate the fantastic rock formations that this canyon tour offers (Cathedral Hall, Four Sisters, Thumb Rock, Pucket Rock, and of course the astonishing slot canyons of this region). This adventure provides a personal touch to explore the beauty of the Navajo land.
You will have to get down and crawl under some boulders, and we have a very narrow section of the canyon that we squeeze through to get to the 10 foot ladder that we climb up to get into the canyon.
