Antelope Canyon Tour Itinerary

Journey to Antelope Canyon

From the Phoenix/Scottsdale area, our route takes us through the Sonoran Desert up into the picturesque mountain town of Flagstaff. This historic Route 66 town lies at the base of the largest mountain range in Arizona, the San Francisco Peaks, which we will be able to gaze upon as we continue to travel north to the Lake Powell region. Along our way, we will enjoy a visit to a Navajo Trading Post and explore Navajo culture and their intricate crafts. Upon arrival to Page, Arizona, we will begin our tour of spectacular Lower Antelope Canyon.* Here, we will tour Lower Antelope Canyon with a local Navajo guide who will lead you through the amazing natural formations of this world famous slot canyon. The photo opportunities will be second to none! You will also enjoy views of Lake Powell and time in Page for a casual lunch.

Horseshoe Bend Overlook

After our time in Antelope Canyon and Page, we will embark upon a scenic one-mile walk to Horseshoe Bend Overlook which is highlighted by awe-inspiring views into this deeply carved channel and the Colorado River below. Photos from the edge of this natural beauty are widespread across the world and are nothing short of amazing.

Physical Requirements for the Tour

*To participate in this tour, guests must be able to perform the following movements: For Antelope Canyon – Can you walk on slanted, uneven sandstone and loose sand? Can you climb up and down steep metal ladders/stairs – some with railings? Antelope Canyon is not strenuous but does require agility, balance and grip. There are also some narrow sections of the canyon that may not be suitable for those with claustrophobia. For Horseshoe Bend – Visiting this overlook requires a 1.5 mile round trip walk on a dirt path with no shade.

*Additional notes for Antelope Canyon – Service animals are not allowed, purses/backpacks are not allowed, tripods are not allowed, hiking poles are not allowed.

***In rare occasions, Lower Antelope will close due to unforeseen weather events. Although we closely monitor the weather, sometimes the closure is beyond our control and happens last minute. If this occurs, we will try to get tickets for UPPER Antelope but this will incur an additional fee of up to $50/person. You will be able to opt out of the Antelope portion if you do not wish to pay this extra fee but you will NOT be refunded for the overall tour, except for the $73/person Lower Antelope ticket.
