The Antelope Canyon is the most visited slot canyon in the American Southwest. The Canyon includes two separate, scenic slot canyon sections, referred to individually as Upper Antelope Canyon and Lower Antelope Canyon.
The access to Antelope Canyon is gated by the Navajo Nation and entry is restricted to guided tours led by authorized tour guides. For a guided tour you need about 2 hours.
You should take your own car or rental car to drive to the Canyon. A good starting point to start the tour, is the city Page.
The tours are guided by private organizations and so the Interagency Annual Pass can not be used. You have to pay $8 per person to get a parking lot, and for a tour $40 per person.

After the short break in Cameron we drove about 1,5h through the beautiful landscape to the city Page.

Before we thought about our overnight situation, we made an intermediate stop at the Horseshoe Bend.
The name got the river loop because of its horseshoe-shaped course.

A great place to visit when you are on the way to the Antelope Canyon! There is a short hike from the parking area to Horseshoe Bend. You don't need tickets and parking is also free. The view is absolutely stunning.

We needed about 1,5 hours to visit the bend.
Now we were looking for a suitable parking space for our car where we could spend the night.
So we searched in Page and the area around the city and finally we found on Google Maps a Campground a little bit outside, the Lone Rock Campground.
We arrived there at 8AM and then we spent the evening in our minivan because outside raged a sand storm.
But with a couple of beers and something to eat, we had a lot of fun.

Small city with some restaurants and a shopping mall. The city itself is not so exciting but it's the perfect starting point to expeditions. In the near are the Horseshoe Bend and the Antelope Canyon.

We went on this day relatively early to bed to be fit again tomorrow.


Before we left the campground again, we took a cozy shower in the public sanitary building.
After that, we went to Page and there we saw the first tours with the off-road trucks that drove to the Antelope Canyon.
Because they were all booked out, the tour guide told us that we should try it directly at the departure point of the Navajo Reservation.
After arriving at 11AM we had to wait half an hour to get a tour ticket.

Great tour guide and tour. They help you with pictures as well as provide info on the canyons. It's a little bit expensive for only 2 hour tour but it's worth the money. We choosed the Lower Antelope Canyon because you can get really awesome pictures from there.

We finished the tour at about 1:30PM and then we drove back to the city Page to eat there lunch.
After the break we were on the road again to our today's destination, the Bryce Canyon.
On our route, the famous "The Wave" would be near Page, but we've cancelled this stop because we read online that only a few people were allowed to enter per day.

Now we drove about 2,5h to reach the Bryce Canyon.
