Amangiri’s surroundings are inspiring enough when seen from the ground, but it’s only from above that you can possibly appreciate the sheer vastness and geological drama of the Colorado Plateau. Whether travelling by helicopter, balloon or plane, there’s no more awe-inspiring way to explore red-rock country than from the sky.
Launching from straight from the resort at sunrise, hot-air balloon flights provide extraordinary views of Amangiri’s 600 acres of wilderness, as well as a deep and memorable sense of tranquillity as the balloon drifts smoothly across the sky.
Helicopters depart directly from Amangiri’s private helipad, hidden among the sandstone towers, and can fly from here to any of the surrounding National Parks. Choose to stay in the air and simply admire the scenery or touch down to embark on a privately guided ground tour.
Monument Valley & the Navajo Nation
Fly by helicopter or fixed-wing plane to Monument Valley and discover the Navajo Nation. Almost completely undeveloped, Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park remains much the same as it did a millennium ago. Amangiri’s tours introduce guests to the culture of the Navajo, the original settlers of the Southwest, thanks to close relationships with experienced Navajo guides.
