The Lower Antelope Canyon in Page, Arizona has been on my travel bucket list for many years. While planning my road trip from Arizona to Maryland, I made Page the first stop! I must say, my visit to this small town was spectacular. Between Horseshoe Bend, Lake Powell and the slot canyons, I found myself squeezing in as much as I could during my two days in town.
The Lower Antelope Canyon is only accessible through a tour guide service in Page, Arizona. At the time of my visit, the company did not take reservations, offering tours and photographer passes on a first-come, first-served basis. The photographer’s pass allowed me two full hours in the slot canyon on a self guided tour.
Visiting and spending time alone in the Lower Antelope Canyon was truly amazing. I often found myself running my fingers along the walls because I had trouble believing they were real! The dynamic color of the sandstone depending on the amount and direction of the light was truly beautiful. I plan to go back someday to soak in the views at least one more time!
Ken’s Tours – Ken’s Tours is the exclusive guide service for the Lower Antelope Canyon. They are open seven days a week, all year long, weather permitting. The summer hours are 8:00 am to 5:00 pm (March-November) and the winter hours are 9:00 am to 3:00 pm (November-February). They have a standard group tour rate as well as a photographer’s rate.
