So you want to go on a guided tour to Antelope Canyon, Active Travel West USA Tours offers daily departures from Las Vegas to the world famous Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend.
The Lower Antelope Canyon walking tour is approximately 10 minutes from the center of Page, Arizona. Guests can drive to the parking lot for Lower Antelope Canyon and join their Navajo guided tour directly at the canyon. Guests will walk approximately 1/4 mile to the lower end of the canyon, where they will enter the canyon by a staircase with railings. Once in the canyon, guests will walk through a narrow sandstone canyon with a few ascents of staircases, moving toward the upper end of the canyon. There are numerous amazing photo opportunities and the Navajo guides will share some history and culture of the area. The tour is approximately 75 minutes in duration.
Horseshoe Bend Overlook requires a 1.5 mile round-trip (2.4 km) walk over sand and rocks. Guests will reach a 1000 foot canyon as they look down upon the Colorado River in the bottom of Glen Canyon.
The Navajo name for Lower Antelope Canyon is Hasdeztwazi or “Spiral Rock Arches.” Many years ago, herds of Pronghorn Antelope roamed freely in and around the canyon, which explains the English name. This incredible canyon has been created over many thousands of years by the relentless forces of water and wind, slowly carving and sculpting the sandstone into forms, textures, and shapes which we observe today.
