Wake early, have breakfast and checkout. Leave at about 8:30 AM. Arrive early at Antelope Canyon to avoid the crowds and enjoy an invigorating hike to Horseshoe Bend. Thousands of years in the making, Antelope Canyon has been slowly carved and sculpted by wind and water creating amazing shapes, forms, and textures that can be seen in the sandstone today. Consisting of two separate canyons you can choose to visit one or both, for this reason park entry fees are not included in the tour price.
Lower Antelope Canyon, known to the Navajo’s as Hasdeztwazi or “Spiral Rock Arches”, is our most recommended stop. While a little more difficult to walk through it is less traveled and offers spectacular photo opportunities as the suns rays create varying lights and shadows as it moves through the narrow canyon walls.
Upper Antelope Canyon, known to the Navajo’s as Tse’ bighanilini, which means “the place where water runs through rocks.” Here you will walk between the narrow 120 foot tall canyon walls that tower around you as sunbeams pierce through the crevices.
Horseshoe Bend, the view from horseshoe bend attracts people from all over; however, the walk there is not suitable for everyone. To get to this stunning location you must walk through a 1/4 mile of sand that takes you uphill to the edge of horseshoe bend. Once there you will stand on the edge and see the Colorado River as it wraps 270 degrees around the landscape and winds it’s way into the Grand Canyon. If you look closely you may even see the raft tours as they float down the river. The view from here is so amazing to fully capture it you will need a wide angle lens.

You can also take a stroll through their “hidden oasis”, a garden so lush with desert botanicals that it is often host to weddings and other special occasions. Kickback, relax, and relive your memories of your eventful days as we take you back to Phoenix or Scottsdale.
