How to book a tour for Antelope Canyon

The Antelope Canyons have fast risen to Top 5 status among the Page, Arizona area’s “must do” activities. You are required to tour them with a Navajo Tribe-authorized guide service, and advance reservations are an absolute must!  Why You Should Book In Advance…

Canyon Overview

So where does one start? To book a tour for Antelope Canyon, you must first decide whether you want to tour Lower or Upper Antelope Canyon, or both

Upper Antelope Canyon is an above-ground slot canyon. It’s an easy, flat 100 yard walk, following a 2-mile off-road ride from the Navajo Tribal Park Gate on US98 to the canyon’s entrance. Upper Antelope Canyon is also where you can catch those world-famous sunbeams between the spring and fall months, but only during peak time tours. If you are traveling with infants, young children, seniors, or anyone with mobility limitations, Upper Antelope Canyon would be the best choice for your slot canyon touring experience, however, only 3 of the 5 Upper Antelope Canyon tour operators allow children under 6 on their tours. Also, wheelchairs and strollers are not allowed due to the difficulty of maneuvering these devices through potentially deep sand and the newly installed network of walkways from the exit of the canyon back to the tour vehicle parking area. 

 

Lower Antelope Canyon is a longer slot canyon (~600 yards), situated below-ground. Touring it requires descending and ascending a series of ladders, and stepping over a few boulders. Access to the canyon is directly from the Tribal Park Gate on US98. If everyone in your traveling party is in reasonably good health and can handle moderate exercise, you should be fine in Lower Antelope Canyon. Although infants and younger children are allowed on Lower Antelope Canyon tours, parents should consider carefully whether this would be an appropriate or safe activity. Although backpack and chest child carriers are allowed, low rock ledges and other hazards could detract from the enjoyment of this experience for all concerned. Consider these facts carefully before booking a tour of Lower Antelope Canyon with your baby or toddler.

  1. Would I be able to take the Upper Antelope tour at 8:15am and the Lower tour at 10:45am on the same day????

    1. Hi William,
      We wouldn’t advise that.
      The key to making both Upper and Lower Antelope Canyon tours work on the same day is having at least a 60-90 minute “buffer” between the CONCLUSION of one tour, and the CHECK-IN time for the other.
      The 8.15 AM Upper Antelope Canyon tour (check-in 7.30-45 am) would conclude at around 9.45 AM. That would give you only 15 minutes to transition to the 10.45 AM Lower Antelope Canyon tour, which would require check-in at 10.00 AM. That’s not much time, and should the Upper tour run late for any reason, you would risk being late for the check-in for Lower and forfeiting your spot on the tour, not to mention what you paid for your tickets. A better choice would be the 11.45 AM Lower Antelope Canyon tour, which requires that you check-in at 11:00 AM. That gives you 1 hour and 15 minutes from when the 8.15 am tour of Upper Antelope wraps up, during which you could grab a bite to eat, freshen up a bit, or do a little shopping.
      Hope that helps. Please contact us at reservations@antelopecanyon.az if you have further questions.
      Good luck and safe travels,
      Alley 🙂
