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).

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.

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.
