Cost: Antelope Canyon Walking Tour
= $109 for 2 x adults, (1-hour tour)
This is one of those places that pops up a lot on Instagram with unreal looking photos and you can’t help but wonder if it’s just hype and clever photography – it’s not! It’s even more beautiful in real life.
Antelope Canyon is a ‘slot canyon’, a cave/tunnel formed in the red sandstone by seasonal flood rains and wind over. The narrow openings allow the light in, reflecting and illuminating the rock.
To take advantage of the best light for photographs in the canyon try and time your tour to fall between 11am to 1pm, from March to October.
The tour, which you have to take to get in to see Antelope Canyon, because it is on a Navajo Indian Tribal Lands is great, our guide was super knowledgeable about the geology, history, photography and loads more which made the experience even more enjoyable. The tour groups are small so you get a good run through, don’t feel rushed and get the space to take the dreamy IG pics.
There are loads of different tour companies available offering tours of both the upper and lower canyon. We used and highly recommend Dixie’s Lower Antelope Canyon Tours.
We took hundreds of photos, here are just a few highlights.
