Antelope Canyon, located near Page, Arizona is home to one of nature’s most wondrous creations – the slot canyon. Carved from the red sandstone for millennia by seasonal flood rains and wind, the canyons are narrow passageways that lead several hundred feet away from the mouth. The gorgeous sloping angles of the rocks – coupled with the shifts of light that make their way down from the rim of the canyon – combine for a scene that cannot be fully explained with words. Only 8 to 12 feet wide along the sandy floor, the slot canyons have been featured in Hollywood films and magazine publications around the world. But none of those images can match the one you’ll experience when you step into the canyons and see this wonder for yourself.
To the Navajo, we call the Upper Antelope Canyon – Tsé’bighanilí – which means “The place where water runs through.” For Lower Antelope Canyon, we call this place Hasdestwazi – which means “Spiral Rock Arches.”
The best times to visit:
- If you are looking to take photos of the sun beaming into the canyon, book a tour with the tour groups in Upper Antelope Canyon around 11am to 1pm for the months of March to October. To get extra time in the canyon, book a tour with a photography group – there may be an extra fee to book this type of tour.
- If you want to do a little hiking and want a little more seclusion, book a tour for the Lower Antelope Canyon area. This portion is not as busy as the Upper Antelope Canyon.
- If you want less tourists, visit during the months of November to March.
For viewing the Antelope Canyon, a permit and a tour guide is required. The tour group will assist you in purchasing the permit.
