This place is everything it’s cracked up to be! There are many amazing, fun tours you can take and even camp down in the canyon. However, you do not have to take a tour to view it, it is also very much a drive-up-get-out-walk-up-marvel-at from a bird’s eye view type of place. Be careful, there are no railings and it is very unregulated. Similar to the Grand Canyon, people have unfortunately gotten too close for a photo, slipped and plunged to their death at Horseshoe.
Also, keep in mind even though there is a parking lot it fills up quickly due to the popularity of this place. You will have crowds of people almost every day of the week. Plan on getting there early if you don’t want to wait for a parking place and capture that coveted people-less panoramic shot.
We did Upper Antelope Canyon. We have heard amazing reviews from both lower and upper but we can speak to the upper being absolutely incredible!
Tickets for tours range from $42-52 and book up months in advance! You might be lucky enough to show up and hope for a cancellation but I wouldn’t risk it. This is a bucket list item for many so try and get tickets as soon as you know it’s a possibility you are heading that way.
Glen Canyon Dam:
Damn! This place is a mind-blowing view and an impressive display of human labor. You can take tours or just view it yourself from the visitor center. There are a few places and information around if you decide to go that route. Want to get up close and personal with Glen Canyon? You can take tours by horseback, boat and more!
