The Ultimate Guide to Exploring Antelope Canyon
Antelope Canyon is one of the most breathtaking natural wonders in the United States. Located in Arizona, this slot canyon is a popular destination for tourists and photographers alike. In this ultimate guide, we will explore everything you need to know about exploring Antelope Canyon.
About Antelope Canyon
Antelope Canyon is a slot canyon located on Navajo land near Page, Arizona. The canyon was formed by erosion of sandstone over millions of years. The result is a stunning network of narrow passageways and smooth curves that are illuminated by sunlight filtering through the narrow openings at the top of the canyon walls.
Planning Your Trip
Antelope Canyon can be visited year-round but peak season is from March to October. It’s important to note that access to the canyon is only allowed with a guided tour. There are two sections of Antelope Canyon – Upper and Lower – and both require different tours. Upper Antelope Canyon is more popular due to its photogenic light beams, while Lower Antelope Canyon offers more adventurous hiking opportunities.
It’s recommended to book your tour in advance as they often sell out quickly. Wear comfortable shoes as you will be walking on sand and rocks throughout the tour.
Antelope Canyon is a photographer’s paradise with its unique lighting conditions and intricate rock formations. To capture the best shots, bring a tripod and adjust your camera settings for low-light conditions.
If you’re visiting during peak season, be prepared for crowds as many other photographers will be waiting for their chance to capture the perfect shot too.
While visiting Antelope Canyon can be an unforgettable experience, it’s important to take safety precautions seriously. Flash flooding can occur during monsoon season (July-September) so check weather forecasts before your trip. Additionally, stay aware of your surroundings and follow instructions from your tour guide to avoid injury.
In conclusion, Antelope Canyon is a must-visit for anyone who loves natural beauty and photography. By following these tips and taking necessary precautions, you can fully enjoy the experience of exploring this incredible slot canyon.

Lower Antelope Canyon With Boat Tour
Hike lower antelope canyon then take a boat tour.
The Lower Antelope Canyon with Boat Tour Combo gives you two of the best experiences that you can enjoy while visiting Page, Arizona. You will hike through Lower Antelope Canyon with your Navajo Guide and then take the Antelope Canyon Boat Tour just 4 miles away on Navajo Route 22 to Antelope Point Marina.
If you’re like most Grand Canyon National Park visitors, you’ll be limited to admiring the vastness of the canyon from a rimside view. As for venturing below the rim, it will most likely be for a short distance, if you manage to do it at all. At Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, you’ll have an entirely different experience. Here, this canyon carved by the Colorado River is much more accessible to the typical traveler, thanks to the presence of Lake Powell. You’ll be able to get down in it, and experience it on a much more intimate level, and that is especially true in Antelope Canyon.
Lower Antelope Canyon Reviews
Antelope Canyon Boat Tour Reviews
On the Lower Antelope Hiking and Boat Tour, you’ll experience this iconic slot canyon in two distinct and beautiful ways: on foot, and on the water. Phase 1* of your tour begins at Ken’s Lower Antelope Canyon Tours. After checking in at their brand new visitor services pavilion, your Navajo Indian Guide will escort you to Lower Antelope Canyon’s entrance. A series of ladders takes you down into a landscape of pure magic, as sculpted sandstone walls bathed in soft, muted colors envelop you. Within the chambers of this geologic anomaly, formed by fast-flowing water and blowing sand, the rattle and hum of the outside world will slip away as you climb and explore. This 600 meter hike is manageable for most people in relatively good health, but parties with infants or toddlers, or anyone with mobility limitations would be better off touring Upper Antelope Canyon.
As you make your way back topside, you’ll be given directions to nearby Antelope Point Marina where you begin Phase 2* of your Antelope Canyon tour: the waterside! Antelope Canyon was formed by an intermittent creek that flash floods from time to time. All that water eventually ends up in Lake Powell. After checking in at the tour boat counter at the top of the hill, a guest services attendant will give you a ride in a golf cart down the ramp to the tour boat dock. Upon boarding your open-air tour boat and receiving a short safety briefing, your U.S. Coast Guard certified captain will guide you and your traveling companions into a side canyon, where towering sandstone walls are adorned with ancient desert varnish. As the canyon becomes narrower and narrower, it becomes clear how it connects to the area you just hiked, until you get to a point where you can go no further. Not to worry – your captain will turn this boat around like a boss!
Upon disembarking back at the tour boat dock, you are welcome to stick around and explore Antelope Point Marina, maybe grab a bite at the Sand Bar restaurant, or purchase a souvenir of your visit. When you’re ready to head back to Page, AZ, simply ask for a guest services attendant to give you a lift back to the marina parking lot, or, if you’re in the mood for more exercise, walk back up the ramp at your leisure.
After all’s said and done, you’ll come away with a greater appreciation for the multi-faceted complexity of Antelope Canyon, and the power of wind, water, and time. Best of all, you were able to arrange this experience in one convenient reservation instead of checking multiple websites and working around sold out Antelope Canyon tours.

Antelope Canyon Lake Powell Boat Tour
So, you’ve toured Antelope Canyon, or one of the other slot canyons in its extended family , and are ready to tick this item off your Page, Arizona to-do list. Sorry, but you’ve only touched the tip of the proverbial iceberg! Antelope Canyon is over 10 miles long. It is one of many tributaries of the Colorado River, and one of over 90 fjord-like side canyons that make Lake Powell one of America’s top boating destinations. In order to appreciate Antelope Canyon for its true complexity, you must see it from two very different perspectives: by land, and by boat.
On the Antelope Canyon Lake Powell Boat Tour , you’ll get an up-close and personal look at not only the waterside of Antelope Canyon, but the many man-made and natural wonders that make up the lower end of Lake Powell. Aboard a Lake Powell Resort and Marina tour boat, piloted by a Coast Guard Certified captain, you and your family will see:
- Glen Canyon Dam
- Navajo Sandstone formations
- Sculpted canyon walls adorned in ancient desert varnish
- Antelope Canyon’s waterside
You’ll travel 4 miles up Antelope Canyon off the main channel of Lake Powell, between canyon walls towering high above you, until the passage becomes so narrow, your boat can travel no further. No worries, though – your experienced captain will turn your vessel safely around, and get you back to Wahweap Marina with a boatload of great memories. Can you believe you did all that in just 90 minutes? Small wonder this is one of Lake Powell Resort and Marina’s most popular boat tours, so book your seat today!
Coffee, lemonade and water are provided on the tour boat. You are welcome to bring a reasonable amount of your own food or preferred beverages with you. A minimum of 15 passengers is required to guarantee operation of the tour.
