Chaco Canyon Adventure
Chaco Canyon is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. For over 1,000 years, the structures built in Chaco Canyon have withstood the test of time. Between 900-1150 A.D., Chaco Canyon was a major center of culture and trade for the Ancient Pueblo Peoples. Chacoans quarried sandstone blocks and hauled timber from great distances, assembling fifteen major complexes which remained the largest buildings in North America until the 19th century. The construction of Great Houses spanned hundreds of miles, based on celestial alignments. The amazing architecture, coordinated with astronomy, is a testament to the advanced engineering skill of the Ancestral Puebloans. Today, indigenous communities in the region remain connected to Chaco Canyon through both kinship and ceremony.
Offered year-round, with prices starting at $147 per person for adult couples. However, group pricing is available. Contact Navajo Tours for a quote.
