Antelope Canyon Wash is approximately 30 miles long and includes a number of different sections. Several local tour companies offer walking tours through the different sections. Each section is different, but all offer beautiful presentations of light, color, and shape.
A visit to any canyon must be with a tour company and include a guide. All are on Navajo land and charge a separate Indian Environmental Protection fee of $8.00 per person in addition to their tour price. Generally, tickets for specific times need to be booked in advance.
