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.

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.

Lower Antelope Canyon changed my life.

I have never photographed something so beautiful with the most beautiful light. We went in the morning, that's the best time if you want to photograph the purple light that you often see in photos.

Crowded but has high payoff!

I come back here every time I'm in the area! Although it's crowded with tour buses and difficult to get a picture without people (you pretty much have to hang out in the back of your group and snap them quick before the next tour group comes around), it's beautiful and great reward for little effort. Come early morning or late afternoon to avoid the crowds -- I took a 4pm tour and my two girlfriends and I had the whole place to ourselves!

What A Beauty!

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