Program #1053RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate

ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Spider Rock, Canyon del Muerto, Massacre Cave — place names invoking the spirit, history and mystery defining Canyon de Chelly.

Join Navajo speakers in discussions of their culture and the challenges of living on the Reservation.
