Are you planning to visit Antelope Canyon soon? You may have heard some myths about this beautiful slot canyon near Page, Arizona and you may be wondering if they are really true. Read on to learn more about common misconceptions surrounding Antelope — as it turns out, many of the “facts” you have heard about it may not be accurate.

Summer Visits Are Best

While you will want to visit Antelope Canyon in the summer if you are going specifically to see the beautiful light beams that the Upper Canyon offers during the spring and summer, you can also enjoy beautiful changing lights on Upper Antelope’s walls during the off-season. Many visitors appreciate the smaller crowds and slightly cooler weather that fall and winter bring, as well. Antelope Canyon Navajo Tours offers guided experiences at Upper Antelope Canyon year-round and books tours up to five months in advance — you can enjoy the canyon’s mystery and beauty during any season.

Antelope Is Not Kid-Friendly

While Lower Antelope may not be the best location for those who have trouble getting around difficult climbing areas, Upper Antelope’s geography is such that it is relatively easy to travel and is very short in length — it is a quarter of a mile one way (half a mile round trip) and does not require any climbing to enter or explore it. This makes it an ideal choice for families, even those with young children. Antelope Canyon Navajo Tours even offers special pricing for kids ages zero to 12.

Antelope Canyon Is One Location

While Antelope Canyon is named as if it is one place, it is actually made up of two slot canyons: Upper Antelope Canyon and Lower Antelope Canyon. Upper Antelope is often preferred by tourists and photographers due to its special beauty and easy travel, as mentioned above. Either location can be toured and can be visited on the same day if desired. Antelope Canyon Navajo Tours exclusively offers tours of Upper Antelope that everyone can enjoy.

Visiting Antelope Takes an Entire Day

Many travelers can enjoy Antelope Canyon as part of a daylong itinerary that includes other nearby locations, such as Horseshoe Bend, Lake Powell, and famous hiking trails. All of our tours at Antelope Canyon Navajo Tours are relatively short so you can enjoy all that the Page area has to offer. Our Guided Sightseers Tours are one hour long, while our Guided Photography Tours last two hours.

It Is Hard to Get Unique Photos

Many people believe that the popularity of Antelope Canyon makes it almost impossible to take a photo that no one has ever captured before. This is simply untrue. With the right camera and a little photographic creativity, you can get a one-of-a-kind photo of Upper Antelope to show off to your family, friends, and anyone else who appreciates stunning photography. Black and white photos, unique angles, and winter visits can all make for unusual imagery unlike anything you may have seen before.
