Where is Antelope Canyon?

You can visit Antelope Canyon in the American southwest, on Navajo land east of Page, Arizona. There are two separate slot canyons, both featuring smooth curves, deep gorges and narrow passages, Upper Antelope Canyon (The Crack) and Lower Antelope Canyon (The Corkscrew). The Navajo tribe who own the land that Antelope Canyon sits on consider the Canyon to be sacred and spiritual to their way of life and will stop to reflect before entering the Canyon themselves.

How was Antelope Canyon Formed?

Antelope Canyon is known by the Navajo as “The place where water runs through rocks.” Incredibly, the flowing rock formation has been formed over hundreds of years as water runs through the sandstone.

How to decide between the two canyons?

If you’re passing through on your Arizona road trip you may not have time to explore both the upper and lower canyons. It may be hard to decide which is best for you, but there’s really no wrong answer. The Lower Canyon gets more footfall recently as it is lower in cost. At midday, The Upper canyon light bends and bounces forming glowing beams and rays. The lower canyon tours run more frequently, so you may not need to book as far in advance as you would for the upper canyon. Whichever canyon you decide is best for your visit, we are certain that it will not disappoint!
