Step directly into your dream photograph with the Antelope Canyon Express Tour

As you begin your 1 – 1.5-hour adventure (all-walking) with Lower Antelope Canyon Tours, your experience will span roughly 1,800 meters (1.1 miles) round trip. Upon descending down five flights of stairs (35 meters) into the largest cavern of the tour, guests’ will begin their majestic ascent through the kaleidoscope of colors naturally provided by the unique creation of Navajo Sandstone, as a result of rain, wind, and erosion. The numerous echelons throughout the canyon consist of eight uniquely built ladders (with handrails) for safety

The Guides are very knowledgeable and will help you to get the most out what ever equipment you are using to photograph the canyon.  They will also take the time to point out all of the angles for each of the unique rock formations such as the “Lion”,  “The Eagle”, “The Wave and the Lady in the Wind”

Some people say that lighting for Lower Antelope is better in the early and late morning however its always possible to get fantastic photos due to the ever changing rock, atmosphere and Lighting conditions.

Lower Antelope Canyon is shaped like a “V” with a narrow pathway that opens up to the sky.  Whereas Upper Antelope Canyon is shaped like an “A” with a wider pathway that narrows as you approach the top of the canyon.

The most difficult portion of this hike is the initial descent into the canyon via five flights of stairs. However the pace is slow so take your time and you should be ok.
