Discovery Air Tours & Scenic Flights To:
Canyon de Chelly, Arizona


CANYON DE CHELLY CLASSIC WING SAFARI

The Canyon de Chelly Classic Wing Safari explores the stunning beauty of the Navajo Reservation by sky and by ground. Depart Santa Fe at 7 a.m. Fly over the Rio Grande River, volcanic formations of the Jemez Mountains, ancient Pueblo ruins, Bisti Badlands, and the Chuska Mountains. Then revel over an exciting scenic flight along the full length of awe-inspiring Canyon de Chelly. After touching down at Chinle, AZ, tour members rendezvous at historic lodge for an all-morning backcountry tour of this fabled Canyon with an Indian guide. See Anasazi cliff dwellings, pictographs, traditional Native American farms, 800-foot redrock walls draped with desert tapestry, and water-carved sandstone sculptures. Enjoy a leisurely rest-stop at Antelope House with time for picnic lunch in the shade of rustling cottonwood trees. After lunch, reboard awaiting six-wheel-drive open-air vehicle to view yet more of the hidden secrets of the Canyon, hear the skilled Navajo interpreter tell fascinating accounts of the long-vanished Anasazi people, and absorb the atmosphere of another time and culture. In the early afternoon, tour members return to their observation plane for flight back to Santa Fe, landing by 3:30 p.m. A powerful day of discovery! $749/person, 2-fare minimum. Package includes all flying, 3.5-hour ground exploration, park entrance fee, and box lunch. (Top of Page)


CANYON DE CHELLY GRAND WING SAFARI

The Canyon de Chelly Grand Wing Safari includes all of the sites and activities of the Classic itinerary above, plus a scenic route back to Santa Fe -- twice the visual impact! A deluxe package for those who want to explore more of the canyons of eastern Arizona and the table-country/highlands of western New Mexico. Few adventure travelers have seen this astonishing matrix of buttes, mesas, monuments, spires, volcanic chimneys, plateaus, chasms, and ravines, compiling a "best of" set of southwestern impressions. A rare opportunity to scout the secluded visual treasures of Indian Country. $795/person, 2-fare minimum. (Top of Page)


CANYON DE CHELLY DELIGHT WING SAFARI

The Canyon de Chelly Delight Wing Safari consists of a direct flight to Canyon de Chelly with light narration.

Expedited return flight to Santa Fe arrives around 2:45 p.m. This natural history adventure is designed to provide minimal time in the air and maximum economy, without sacrificing the great panoramic views of the Navajo Reservation. $695/person, 3-fare minimum.
