Photograph Antelope Canyon

Antelope Canyon

Explore breathtaking slot canyons with wonderful lighting throughout the day. The tours are guided tours by local Navajo.

Antelope Canyon is the most-visited and most-photographed slot canyon in the American Southwest. It is located on Navajo land near Page, Arizona, and requires you to book a tour guide. But don’t let that dissuade you – this natural marvel is well worth it, and this is a must-do for amateur and professional photographers alike.

The canyon is divided into two primary areas: Upper Antelope Canyon and Lower Antelope Canyon. The Navajo name for Upper Antelope Canyon is Tse' bighanilini, which means "the place where water runs through rocks." Upper Antelope is at about 4,000 feet elevation and the canyon walls rise 120 feet above the streambed. Located within the LeChee Chapter of the Navajo Nation.

Lower Antelope Canyon is Hasdestwazi, or "spiral rock arches." Located within the LeChee Chapter of the Navajo Nation.

Tours can be purchased in nearby Page, Arizona and range from $30 to $80 per person, depending on the time of the day and length of the tour.

Breathtaking

It was unlike any place I have ever been in my life. My husband took me here on a weekend adventure for my birthday because it was on my bucket list and it was everything I had hoped. It was awesome.

Lower Antelope Canyon

$25 plus the $8 Navajo fee is well worth it to go to the Lower Antelope Canyon. I’ve made my research on looking which one is better, lower or upper. A lot of people thinks lower is it but I’m still curious what upper has to offer too. 😊 you don’t have to be a professional photographer to get beautiful pictures. And you don’t have to edit photos too! The structure itself is beautiful! Will definitely come back and do this again!

A southwest must do

This was everything I expected. Booked my tour with Navajo Antelope Canyon Tours and they treated us really well for being such a busy tourist attraction in the area. Free calendar at the end!
