Baby Boomer Travel Tips:

  • Lower Antelope Canyon is located on Navajo land off of Copper Mine Road near Page, Arizona. It is administered by the LeChee Chapter of the Navajo Nation.
  • Currently, all access is by guided tour only.
  • There is a general admission fee of $6.00 in addition to the tour fee. Age 7 or younger are free.
  • The canyon is dark in many places with an uneven walking surface. At times, conditions are tight.
  • Peak visiting season is late March to October.
  • Take care during monsoon season. In 1997, 11 tourists lost their lives due to a flash flood upstream of Lower Antelope Canyon.
  • We visited Lower Antelope Canyon as part of a photography workshop with Exposure360.
  • Photographers should bring a tripod due to low light conditions, although the photos you see in the video were taken without a tripod.
  • Upper Antelope Canyon and Waterholes are two more slot canyons in the area that can be visited on a guided tour.
