Antelope Slot Canyon is the feature attraction on this tour, but includes other highlight adventures. Like views of massive Lake Powell, a trek to Horseshoe Bend, visit to the Carl Hayden Visitor Center which overlooks Glen Canyon Dam and the Colorado River as it begins its journey to the Grand Canyon. Our guests can take a walk on the pedestrian side of Glen Canyon Dam and view the river rafts far below.
This tour may be semi-customized to the desires of the group to spend more or less time at particular attractions. Although short hikes are easy to moderate, there are places where guests with disabilities could have some difficulty. Your tour guide will summarize what to expect during the journey so choices can be made that complement the group's desires within the allotment of scheduled tour time.
Antelope Canyon is stunningly beautiful. Located on the Navajo Indian Reservation. it is the most scenic and photographed slot canyon in America. The group has a choice of exploring the Upper Canyon or the Lower Canyon. The Upper Canyon is flat and easy to walk and wider versus the Lower Canyon which has several places where guests must be capable of climbing several sets of vertical stairs.
Each canyon features endless spectacular photo opportunities particularly when cascading beams of sunlight penetrate into the canyon illuminating sculpted sandstone of infinite shape and form with an unimaginable blend of glowing pastel colors. The Navajo Nation considers the canyon as a sacred place with mystical reverence. It is a vibrant underground cathedral created by nature with exquisite depths of contrast and brilliant color.

One of the best visitor centers you will ever experience. An architectural wonder. Perched high above Glen Canyon Dam and the beginning of the Colorado River, the Visitor Center sets right on the edge of a cliff. Your senses will peak and adrenalin will flow. Tour the incredible museum. Massive windows at visitor center permits great views of the dam, Glen Canyon Bridge, monstrous Lake Powell which is the second-largest man made lake in America. Stroll outside the visitor center, sit on the grass under shade trees, and savor the panoramic views.
Massive Glen Canyon Dam forms Lake Powell. It is an engineering marvel that rises 710 feet from its bedrock and 1,500 feet long. It is 300 feet wide at its base and 25 feet wide at its crest. When the lake is full, the dam holds-back over 26 Million acre-feet of water. From the Carl Hayden Visitor Center you can walk the pedestrian area of the dam and even take an optional 45-minute guided tour deep into the inner depths of the dam and learn how electricity is generated.
Horseshoe Bend can only be described as breathtaking. Feel the adrenalin rush as you stand on the edge of canyon cliffs and look straight down 1000 feet to the Colorado River below as it journeys through Marble Canyon on its way to the Grand Canyon. It you are afraid of heights, don't get too close to the edges of the cliff, there are no protective guard rails. Horseshoe Bend is a photographer's dream. Reaching the Bend requires about a 3/4 mile easy to moderate hike. There are some areas of heavy sand, so this trek is not wheelchair accessible. More about Horseshoe Bend.
On the return trip to Flagstaff or Sedona, Arizona, we make a rest stop at Cameron Trading Post on the Navajo Indian Reservation. Guests will be able to see the western-end of the Painted Desert in the distance. See Navajo and Hopi artifacts and shop for authentic Native American made crafts, jewelry, and Kachinas. Stroll the lush botanical garden that often hosts weddings. The tour is now complete and we journey back to your lodging in either Sedona, AZ or Flagstaff AZ.
