Antelope Canyon, Page

(4.2/5 based on 5,000+ reviews on the web)
A sacred site for the Navajo, Antelope Canyon includes not one but two slot canyon sections, formed over thousands of years by erosion and flash flooding. While the Navajo call this canyon "the place where water runs through rocks," most tourists come to know the upper section as the Crack, and the lower as the Corkscrew. The Navajo restrict entry to official tours led by authorized guides, who take visitors to spots best suited for photographing the unusual play of light against the steep rock walls. To access certain areas of the canyon, you may have to climb a series of steep stairs, so be sure to wear comfortable hiking shoes. Ensure entry on the day of your visit by booking well in advance. With our online itinerary creator, Page attractions like Antelope Canyon can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • This was an off the beaten path decision we made at the last minute and we were floored. The beauty of the canyon was incredible! We went through in early March around 11 am and the light streamed int...  more »

  • Hard to imagine without going there... It's a great, very special place that deserves to be seen. The beauty of the place is almost unreal.

  • We took the 8:00 sightseeing tour and it was just amazing. Part of the trip to and from the canyon was a bit bumpy (because half the drive there is off road) but not uncomfortable. Once there, the scenery was positively breathtaking. Our guide, Rosie, was the best, providing geologic and human insights into the area. I cannot recommend this highly enough.
  • We did the Upper Antelope Canyon Tours which is utterly amazing! You start out in a giant truck with 12 passengers in an outside seating area and 2 inside the truck. The ride to the canyon is 7 miles. Four on paved roads and three on bumpy off road. On our tour my wife and I were the only Americans. The other 12 were Europeans who spoke limited English. Our driver and tour guide Cindy was fabulous! She explained what we were looking at with pictures and where to stand to get the best shots. She was very patient with all and even adjusted our cameras and camera phones to the proper settings. She is a former teachers and had the best personality. Two of the Danish guys wanted to marry her, but she was already married😕 Ask for her if you can.
  • The tribe that runs this is awesome. Our guide was so nice and informative. Don't forget to tip!! The tour through the canyon is an experience you will never forget. Don't forget to take your camera. You have to be able to climb through narrow pathways and up and down narrow steps too. Well worth the time and money.
  • Photography tips. If you want to use tripod and make beautiful photos and you going with group, you will not be able to make it, it is crowded and tripods are not allowed. Guides are helping with good spots, be near your guide, some of them are helping with taking pictures, give them your camera/phone and they will make some good pics for you. The tour is very fast, try to make as many photos as you can, you will sort out them later. Photographers better take photography tours, you can find info online, call them in advance. Night photography tours are available and you can see my photo from this tour. My guides were so nice and we spend extra hour. They bring lights, they can steel wool for you, the rest is yours. Cloths: wear hat or cover your head, sand can fall from above. For the night photography: I recommend long pants and boots, cuz scorpions lives there. Bring water and snack. Dont forget to tip your guide, if you liked.
  • Place is awesome. Superb for photography. Just that the tours are very packed and they hardly give you enough time to enjoy walking the place. Very crowded and tour guides rush through everything.
