The Lower Canyon requires more physical ability, but you will be rewarded with significantly less crowds. You can also visit Antelope Canyon on Lake Powell, which is where the run-off from the upper areas will drain off into. Each has its own unique personality and are well worth checking out.

My wife and I in our seventies along with two friends same age are planning a trip to see Antelope Canyon and Vermillion Cliffs, in late Oct. this year. Please let me know where we can find tour guides and purchase tickets for the Slot Canyon Boat ride on the site. We can only walk 50-100 yards on the level. We do have canes for assistance.
Last time we went to Vermillion Cliffs we could only go some distance by car but found no guides or available trips by ATV to get closer. We are great admirers of our glorious South West. Appreciate your help.

    Hi Bryavan, You can book Antelope Canyon boat tours by going directly to the site There is no real walking besides getting to the boat from the parking lot at the marina.

    If you are interested in Antelope Canyon slot tours, I recommend going to to see the different companies. I strongly recommend Upper Canyon if you have mobility issues.

    Lastly, if you’re still interested in tours of the Vermilion Cliffs, give our friend Kyle a call. His website is

My family and I are planning to go there around May for my graduation trip. I was thinking going to the upper or lower canyon because I think those are the most popular ones. Do you know if they have a good weather there during May? Will it still be cold, or windy or really hot?

    admin - March 8, 2016

    May has an average of 80 degrees. It can get really windy around 4pm, but you probably won’t be too worried about because the canyons will be closed.

Ryan, you’re very helpful we might be driving from Scottsdale next week to Page. If we are only spending one night. so we would have a day in a half what would you do? Antelope canyon or horseshoebend? Can you do both? Should we spend 2 nights? What’s Canyon x. Is a boat tour in antelope canyon worth the time ?
Thanks so much Ilene

    Hi Ilene,
    If you have a day and a half I would recommend you take a look at the article I wrote for a one-day itinerary and spread it out over the extra day. Canyon X is a slot canyon that is near Antelope Canyon physically, but much more difficult to get to. The biggest difference is how much time you have available, and how much you dislike crowds (Canyon X will be more private.) With your limited time, I would recommend you do Antelope Canyon, and if you had the extra time I would add a half day float with Colorado River Discovery or do a tour of Glen Canyon Dam.

    I hope that helps!

Hi Ryan,
I will be going to Las Vegas in December with my parents. I was thinking of taking a one day road trip to either Antelope cannon or Horseshoe Bend from the Grand Canyon. Are both doable or should we only do one? Also is the view better in the sunrise or the sunset? Thank you for all your help!

    admin - September 14, 2016

    Hi Ana,
    Horseshoe Bend and Antelope Canyon are only about 10 minutes from each other, and they take about 2 hours each, so you can easily do both. All times are good Antelope Canyon during this time of year, since there are no light beams. Horseshoe Bend kind of depends on what you are looking for. Sunset is most popular, as the sun will be setting in the photograph.

    I hope that helps!
