Antelope Canyon

Many visitors plan trips to Page just to experience the oft-photographed Antelope Canyon, a surreal landscape you'll have to see to believe. It's divided into two sections, Upper and Lower. The Navajo names for both sides hint at what to expect: the Upper Canyon is Tsé bighánílíní ('The place where water runs through rocks') and the Lower Canyon is known as Hasdestwazi ('Spiral rock arches').

Managed by the Lake Powell Navajo Tribal Park, the canyon can only be visited by tour. The Upper Canyon is more accessible and appropriate for small children, while the Lower Canyon involves steep staircases and is considered more beautiful. The tours are through one of several local outfitters, such as Ken's Tours or Ekis' Antelope Canyon Tours. Reservations are recommended if you'd like to secure a particular tour time (noon tours receive the best light); otherwise, walk-ins are served on a first-come, first-served basis.
