No, the Antelope Canyon is protected by the Navajo Parks and Recreation and only authorized tour companies can take visitors to the canyon. Safety and preventing vandalism are the main reasons why everyone needs a guided tour; the canyon became unavailable to the public in 1997. One cannot go alone; you have to be with an authorized tour company.
In total we are walking 1,200 meters, the first 400 meters is relatively easy, there are no ladders/stairs inside the Upper Antelope Canyon – it is all ground level. The entire time you’re at the canyon you will be walking on sand, some areas have softer sand and some areas are more packed down. Now to arrive back to where we parked our trucks we must continue for another 800 meters, there is a hike involved, there is a hill to conquer, and there are stairs we have to go up and then down outside of the canyon, we’re walking up, around, and back down.
This walk can be difficult for those who have had recent knee, hip surgery – please note we have to finish our tour in a timely manner. All in all, we rate this a level 3 out of 10 in difficulty, and sorry to say this tour is not accessible friendly.
The get a better understanding of the hike involved, watch this video:
We cannot. As of 2003, we were given strict guidelines from the Navajo Parks and Recreation to have a guide present at all times with visitors. There are no self-guided hikes into the Antelope Canyon. It is completely restricted to tours only, you cannot be left alone, and our tour guides will be providing you with a fully guided tour.
Yes, with passenger limits it is best to have a reservation before arriving in Page, AZ. It is very important to have your tours booked before traveling many miles. If we are sold out we really are sold out, and we do not maintain a waitlist.
If you made a booking on our website you have purchased a fully guided tour into the Upper Antelope Canyon. Please note it is a guided tour through and through – please don’t be under the impression you bought entry into the canyon to explore on your own, this is not the case. Sightseeing tours run 90-100 mins from start to finish – we provide the transportation and guide commentary along with some photo tips while you’re on tour.
You may have also bought our tour to Vermilion Cliffs.
Tours leave from our office location in Page AZ (22 South Lake Powell BLVD)
With the new One-Way system there will be a bit more room inside the canyon, no more two-way traffic, so we are going to allow a backpack per couple / family – we are OK with hydropacks – the smaller the better, something like this [Click Link]
The smaller the bag the better – we do not want you scratching the walls with your bags, do not bring overly excessive bags, the less you have to carry during the hike the better you will be.
Only bring items you actually need – do not bring anything that is considered illegal or dangerous. Bags are subject to search before boarding the trucks.
You are on your feet for one hour, you can use a backpack carrier and or sling to carry your little one.
if your carrier has a metal frame you need to mind the rocks, don’t scratch the walls with your backpack.
Strollers will not work in the soft sand.
Tours to Antelope Canyon, sorry no pets or service animals, are not allowed on the tour (by order of the Navajo Nation Government/Tribal Parks Department).
Tours to Vermilion Cliffs, pets are allowed.
This depends on the season. If you are visiting during the off-season (Nov-Feb) your odds might be okay. If you are visiting us in-season (Mar-Oct) your odds are low. There are daily passenger limits, and we always recommend advance reservations, especially during holidays. Please book a tour and hotel before traveling hundreds/thousands of miles to visit our area.
Please note, if our calendar is marked Sold Out, we really are sold out. We cannot accommodate walk-ins if we are marked sold out – we do not allot tickets for walk-ins. Remember the only way to see the canyon is on a tour – you cannot go on your own.
The beams of light are visible on clear, sunny days. If you happen to be here on a cloudy day we will not accept cancellations, as we do not control the weather. With this said it’s usually followed by the question, “Does it make sense for me to go at a different time?” or “Will it be worth it?” My answer to you: Yes, the canyon is forever beautiful, and all tour times have something great to offer with great photo opportunities. the 12:00pm tour that we offer (in 2022) gives you a chance to see some beams of light along with awesome colors throughout the canyon. But trust us, all tour times are Beautiful, without a doubt. Please note the beams of light happen best between the months of April and August, September, mostly the first half of September- the end of September there are partial beams touching the walls.
We have children of all ages join our tour, and we believe it is safe. On windy days, however, babies don’t like the extra dust blowing around.
UPDATE 2020 & beyond: The extra hike we will take up and over the canyon should be fine for children – Please note the walk up and over does not involve any dangerous heights – you might want to consider the temperatures depending on the season.
Please follow your doctor’s orders. However, we have had many pregnant ladies join our tour, and we do offer the option to sit in the cab of the truck with the driver. These are limited seats so be sure to tell us in advance.
Yes, we will be traveling through the desert and the canyon floor has a sandy floor. A gust of wind can get dust moving. If you are sensitive to dust you may want to bring a mask or bandana.
Tripods are not allowed on the Sightseer’s Tour, nor mono-pods. Only hand-held photography is allowed these days – please note we do not allow photo sessions on tour.
However, on the Vermilion Tours you can bring them.
We do not, reason why: Horseshoe Bend does not require a tour. No need to buy a tour, as you can drive yourself to the trail-head. As of April 2019 the city of Page, AZ renovated the parking lot and is now collecting a fee to park your car. Rates start at $10 per vehicle (motorcycles $5). View where the parking lot is >
From our office, the trailhead to Horseshoe Bend is less than 10 minutes away.
We are considering adding this as an option, the demand seems to be high – if this sounds like something you want to let me know, if I get enough emails I may consider it.
No, they are not the same – these two canyons are miles apart from one another. The upper and lower canyons share a dry-wash and when and if there is a flood, the water flows through the upper canyon first (elevation), hence the name lower and Upper Antelope Canyon. Final note: tours into the Upper Antelope – you are walking through the beautiful sandstone walls – check out our gallery of the Upper Antelope Canyon.
Our tours are into the world-famous Upper Antelope Canyon. We do not offer tours to the lower section. The lower portion has its own set of tour operators that conduct tours there (lower) and only there. There are no combo tours, if you wish to see both canyons you will have to book two separate tours with two separate companies.
Inside the canyon, there are no ladders or stairs.
Outside of the canyon, after we’ve walked through the canyon there are stairs/ramps involved.
Yes, the Vermilion Cliffs is BLM recreation, however remember the North and South Coyote Buttes require hard-to-obtain permits beforehand.
Why are we providing tours? We handle the task of transportation (without the proper vehicle you run the risk of getting stuck in soft sand), we know the way, safety and knowledge of the area.
We do Not sell tours on 3rd party websites – except for expedia (HOWEVER) our availability is mirrored on expedia to what you see directly on our website.
