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.

What A Beauty!

It is as beautiful as the pictures show! It's a breezy easy little hike but worth the money and time.

Truly a gem of the southwest! MUST SEE! Awesome on a night tour as well!

Upper and Lower Antelope Canyons are truly fantastic! The upper canyon is certainly more grandeous, and accordingly, there are hoards of people. Be sure to take a photography-geared tour if you want a prayer of getting shots of the canyon without people in the photo. Here is a link to a guide with some more details on both Antelope Canyons as well as some of the other surrounding slot canyons. http://bit.ly/2arZ41r A night tour is available through the below operator; check it out if you are into night photography, light writing, and/or astrophotography! http://bit.ly/2ajXTCd

Uhhhmazing!

Definitely one of the coolest places to see in the southwest. I'm usually here once a year. One time the tour guide was a 16 year old kid who stopped my group at the memorial before going in and said "8 people died here when it rained" and continued on like it was normal. That strangely added some dark humor that I think only I picked up on since everyone else didn't speak much English. Obviously you're there to focus on the incredible colors of the canyon walls, but when you get into post-processing your photos don't be afraid to turn them black and white or even sepia. It creates a whole different dynamic with the lighting. Since there isn't an option to post a photo here I'll post the link to my own sepia shots to provide an example. https://jblitzphotography.smugmug.com/Lower-Antelope-Canyon-Sepia/
