Come enjoy the unique and awe-inspiring beauty found within Antelope Canyon, located near Page, Arizona. A haven for photographers and social media enthusiasts, this slot canyon is full of bright light beams, vibrant color, and rare, wave-like walls. The artistry found within this canyon is thanks to millions of years of water erosion, and the product is truly a sight to see.
Open all year long, this is definitely a location all outdoor enthusiasts will want to experience and should add to their bucket lists. However, guided tours are a requirement since it’s located on Navajo land. A Lower Antelope Canyon tour will prove to be brighter and more narrow, with a staircase to get you into the canyon. An Upper Antelope Canyon tour is wider at the bottom, and is the ideal area to get the iconic light beam shots that this area is so famous for showcasing! An Antelope Canyon tour will certainly prove to be an adventure you don’t want to miss out on.
Be sure you always dress for the weather and respect the sacredness of the land. You are experiencing a treasured part of Navajo Nation culture and land and we ask you treat it with the utmost respect.
