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 5 on their tours. Also, wheelchairs and strollers are not allowed due to the difficulty of maneuvering these devices through potentially deep sand. 

 

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. Hi Michal,
      Unfortunately, photography tours in the main branches of the Antelope Canyons have been discontinued. This is due to the popularity of the canyons making it inconducive to the slower pace of photography tours. You can, however, still enjoy photography tours in some of the alternate segments of Antelope Canyon, such as Antelope X or Waterholes Canyon, or Mystical Antelope Canyon. You can even try your hand at some night photography in Ligai Si’Anii Canyon. Some of these may not advertise their tours as photography tours per se and may not allow equipment such as tripods, but due to smaller group size and the more relaxed pace at which the tours are taken, picture-taking is a much more pleasant experience.
      Note that slot canyon terrain varies widely and some tours are more strenuous than others. Check out the links above for more information.
      Good luck, safe travels, and Happy Holidays!

    1. Hi LC,
      Sorry for the trouble you’re experiencing booking Upper Antelope Canyon tours.
      Most of the tour companies have opened up online availability for the entire year of 2023 but apparently not all.

  3. I will have approximately 30 senior citizens with various mobility skills. I am looking to book a tour on Sept 20, 2023, preferably in the morning. Do you have availaiblity?

    1. Hi Gerald,
      With a group of seniors with, as you put, “various mobility skills,” you’d probably be best off touring Upper Antelope Canyon. The canyon itself is relatively short, flat and easy to navigate. Probably the most challenging aspect is the newly installed 1/2-mile long walkway from the exit of the canyon back to the tour vehicle parking area, but that’s also fairly flat and mostly downhill. Watch this YouTube video to see what that looks like.
      For Upper Antelope, there are five tour companies to pick from:
      – Antelope Canyon Navajo Tours http://www.navajotours.com 928-698-3384
      – Roger Ekis’ Antelope Canyon Tours http://www.antelopecanyon.com 928-645-9102
      – Adventurous Antelope Canyon Tours http://www.adventurousantelopecanyon.com 928-380-1874
      – Chief Tsosie’s Slot Canyon Tours http://www.antelopeslotcanyon.com 928-645-5594
      – Tse Bighanilini Tours https://www.tsebighanilini.com/ 928-310-9458
      Give them a call to see if they can accommodate you.
      Good luck, safe travels, and have a happy holiday season!
