Fees & Reservations
NO ENTRANCE FEE
There is no fee for park entrance; however, the park does appreciate donations. Donations can be dropped in the donation box inside the visitor center.
No fee, permit or Navajo guide are required to drive the North and South Rim Drives or hike the White House Trail. The scenic drives feature overlooks that provide excellent views of the canyon below. The White House Trail is the only public trail in the park.
Fees vary for tours through the bottom of the canyon. Tours by vehicle, horseback or hiking are generally available year round, but may be restricted due to hazardous conditions or for the protection of park resources.
Make arrangements directly with the independent companies. Reservations are recommended. For more information, click on THINGS TO DO.

Did You Know?
The name of Canyon de Chelly was derived from the misspelling and mispronunciation of the Navajo word for the canyon. The Navajos call the canyon "Tseyi" which is pronounced 'say-ee.' Eventually the word became "de Chelly" which is pronounced as 'de-shay'
