See Antelope from Grand Canyon South Rim

Most travelers will be coming from the Grand Canyon South Rim or heading towards the Grand Canyon after they see Antelope Canyon.

If you’re already at the Grand Canyon, you know there is an irresistible urge to get to the bottom. The best way to do that without hiking 10+ miles is to do the float trip from Page.

This tour crosses off the best “must do’s” of the area with a minimal amount of effort (if you’re already at the Grand Canyon.)

From the Grand Canyon South Rim

  • Fly over the eastern rim on your way to East Grand Canyon
  • Hike Antelope Canyon
  • Raft 15.5 miles of the Colorado River
  • Short hike to ancient petroglyphs

  1. Hi Alley,

    I am planning a visit to Antelope Canyon early november. I have a full day but I can’t decide if we should go for Upper or Lower Canyon. Is there a way to do both in one day without being super rushed ? any tip would be greatly appreciated!

    1. Hi Annick,
      Yes, you absolutely can tour Lower and Upper Antelope Canyon in one day! Book both tours as a “bundle,” and you will be given a choice of how much time you would like to have between tours, whether you prefer them back to back, or if you’d like to take things at a more leisurely pace.

      Good luck and safe travels,
      Alley 🙂

      1. Thanks Alley,
        If we were to visit only one, which one would you suggest ? What are the main differences ? Is there one that is more spectacular than the other ?

        1. Hi again, Annick!
          All Page, AZ, slot canyons are spectacular! However, if you’re physically fit enough to handle the stairs and ladders in Lower Antelope Canyon, I’d recommend touring it, and maybe complimenting it with a boat tour of Antelope Canyon’s waterside so you can see how the two sections of canyons are connected. If you’re unsure as to whether you’d be able to fully enjoy Lower Antelope Canyon, watch this Full Video Walk-Through. Note that the people in the video are carrying backpacks, which is no longer allowed.
          Have a wonderful time!

  2. Just where the heck is Antelope Canyon located? I see many things describing what to do and how to do it and when to do it but no where do I see just where the hell it is located!

    1. Hey Roger,
      Antelope Canyon is located in Northern Arizona, a few miles Southeast of the town of Page. You can get there from other cities in Arizona and Nevada by tour packages, such as the Canyon River Adventure (the page you happened upon). However, to enjoy maximum freedom and flexibility, self-driving is really the best way to go. That way you can enjoy other attractions near Antelope Canyon, such as Horseshoe Bend, the Glen Canyon Dam, and Lake Powell, on your schedule and not somebody else’s.
      Since Antelope Canyon is situated on Navajo Indian Tribal Land, a licensed tour guide is required for all parties to enter. Also, because it is a very popular attraction, advance reservations are strongly recommended. How To Book A Tour For Antelope Canyon

      Hope that clarifies things. Please do not hesitate to write again should you have more questions.
      Alley 🙂
