Antelope Canyon, Page

4.5
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. Using our custom trip planner, Page attractions like Antelope Canyon can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

    My Navajo guide, Eugene took the pictures of me as I marveled at this natural slot canyon. The place was full of photographers and understood why! There is just NOTHING like this. Go with a tour. You ...  more »

    We went to the Lower Canyon, but because I have a knee problem, they recommended that we visit the Upper Canyon and we weren't disappointed. We were very lucky to catch the timing between two storms. ...  more »

    Spectacular canyon! We visited in Feb 2017 and this was the highlight of our trip in Arizona. We visited the lower canyon which required us to descend deep into the slot canyon. We had a terrific guide who pointed out the various shapes of the rock walls. The colors in the late morning were incredible with purples, yellow and orange. The colors would be different in the afternoon as the sun rose higher in the sky. Definitely a fabulous sight to see.

    Beautiful canyon, excellent for a short photographic adventure! Hunt around for best pricing, no free access. We went early Sunday, there was a line and several popular times were already booked.

    Beautiful canyon in Navajo Nation. Different tour companies take you there. The one I used charged $33 for a tour. I think it's worth it. The guide was very knowledgeable and made sure you got lots of good photos, even though there's always a crowd of people, they wait for people to get clear so it's just you in the frame

    This place is incredibly beautiful. However, do not expect to be alone, especially on long weekends - it gets pretty crowded and you should book a tour in advance. It may sometimes take a lot of to take pictures without someone photobombing you. Also note that there is no individual access, only organized groups with tour guides. That being said, if you're in this area, it's a must-see.

    That's the place to be!! I went to there was breathtaking experience. It's so beautiful and photogenic. My camera skill is such a normal amateur, but I could take good photos here. I went to upper Antelope Canyon was great.
