Horseshoe Bend: Our most recommended tours and activities

Page: Upper or Lower Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend Tour

1. Page: Upper or Lower Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend Tour

Explore the beauty of the Upper Antelope Canyon (1.5 hours) or Lower Antelope Canyon (1.5 hours) and Horseshoe Bend (30 minutes) on a tour from Page with a Navajo guide and park fees included. Enrich your tour with an optional visit to the Glen Canyon Dam Overlook (30 minutes). Following pickup by spacious, air-conditioned van, head to Upper or Lower Antelope Canyon (depending on option booked). The canyon is called Ts bighnln, meaning "the place where water runs through rocks" by the Navajo People.  Once there, keep an eye out for the beams of direct sunlight radiating down from openings at the top of the canyon. This happens most in the summer because they require the sun to be high in the sky. Continue your tour to Horseshoe Bend (30 minutes), a superb example of an entrenched meander that was slowly cut by the Colorado River over millions of years. If you booked the option to also visit the Glen Canyon Dam Overlook, head there next. Marvel at a canyon that stretches from the Lees Ferry in Arizona to the Orange Cliffs of southern Utah. Admire this breathtaking area that encompasses scenic vistas, geologic wonders, and a vast panorama of human history. Return to your pickup point in Page at the end of your tour.
