Northeast Arizona Trip Planner
Welcome to Northeast Arizona!
The area that makes up the northeastern corner of Arizona is dominated by the Navajo and Hopi Indian Reservations. The landscape of Northeast Arizona is an expanse of unique rock formations in a desert-like climate, allowing visitors to experience a part of the United States unlike any other. One of the largest centers in this part of Arizona is Chinle, whose name means water outlet, in reference to the mouth of the Canyon de Chelly. Today, Chinle is the departure point for the Canyon de Chelly National Monument, which features evidence of the Southwest Indian tribes who once inhabited this area. Tours through the canyon reveal Anasazi artwork that was scrawled hundreds of years ago, a testament to the strong Indian heritage that continues in the area today. Kayenta is another town in Northeast Arizona that offers an array of accommodations and services for visitors, as well as a small airport to facilitate transportation.
