How strenuous is the lower canyon? Do the steps have handrails going down?
Lower Antelope Canyon is moderately strenuous, but the stairs do have handrails. We advise watching this Full Video Walkthrough of Lower Antelope Canyon before committing to a tour. Please note that the people in the video are wearing backpacks, but this is no longer allowed.
Good luck, safe travels, and Happy Holidays!
Thanks for sharing so much wonderful information.
We are visiting Canyon X in Page this October and I am wondering whether you have a recommendation whether the light would be better on a 10:30 or 1pm photo tour? Each tour lasts 2-3 hours.
Either departure would be fine. October is a great time to be here! Hope you’ll be spending a couple of days so you can enjoy all the town has to offer.
Good luck and safe travels,
