Upper Antelope Canyon Tour

Your day of discovery gets off and rolling from Chief Tsosie’s Antelope Slot Canyon Tours in downtown Page, AZ. Aboard super-comfortable luxury touring vehicles, specially modified to handle off-road trekking, you’ll travel down the edge of Manson Mesa to the Navajo Indian Reservation. After a 2-mile trip down a remote dirt road, you arrive at the mouth of Upper Antelope Canyon.

As you walk into the chambers of this world-famous slot canyon, you leave behind the noise and heat of the man-made world, and enter the cool, surreal confines of a masterpiece of nature. Formed over aeons by churning flash flood waters and fine grains of sand buffeted by gale force winds, the interior of Upper Antelope Canyon is a kaleidoscope of subtle earth tones, constantly changing in depth and intensity as the sun moves overhead. But at a mere 100 yards in length, Upper Antelope Canyon represents only a small fraction of this complex, multi-faceted geological curiosity. To get a true sense of the powerful and miraculous forces responsible for Antelope Canyon’s formation, you literally have to go deeper, and that’s what you’re about to do next!

Length of Tour : 1 Mile

Lower Antelope Canyon Tour

Your Lower Antelope Adventure will have you starting out at  Ken or Dixies Lower Antelope Canyon Tours . Parking is just north of Highway 98.

Following a short walk to the canyon’s entrance, it’s time to get a bit more physical. A climb down a series of ladders takes you to an underground wonderland of spirals, ledges, arches, and bas relief-like formations that will paint pictures in your imagination. The entire hike comes in at just One Mile with the most strenuous portion being the decent into the canyon via 5 ladders that will take you to the beginning of your Adventure

At 600m in length, and with several ladders and small boulders to navigate, Lower Antelope Canyon requires a little more effort to enjoy, but millions of people annually find the experience to be well worth the exercise.
