The Antelope Canyon tour begins with check-in for your tour in Uptown Sedona, and you will have time to get coffee or a snack at the Pink Java Cafe before departing for the tour. Once you're settled aboard a comfortable Ford Transit van, you will begin your journey to Antelope Canyon. You will travel up Oak Creek Canyon, a stretch of 89A that has been featured as one of the 10 most scenic highway drives in the country, and then continue North from Flagstaff by the San Francisco Peaks and through the painted desert. You will pass through the largest Native Reservation in the country belonging to the Navajo. Once near Page Arizona, you will embark on a 1.5 mile round trip hike to see Horseshoe Bend, an oxbow carved into the landscape by the mighty Colorado River. After the hike, it is about a ten minute drive to Glen Canyon Dam where you'll enjoy lunch. After spending about an hour at the dam, it is off to Antelope Canyon.
At Antelope Canyon, you'll be introduced to your Navajo Guide, who will lead the group on a spectacular hike through Lower Antelope Canyon. The guide will share stories of the Navajo culture and the amazing geology that transformed the sandstone canyon. After spending approximately 1 hour in the narrow slot canyon taking photos, it is time to journey back to Sedona. Along the way, we will stop at the historic Cameron Trading Post for souvenirs. After shopping, it's back in the Transit Van for a relaxing return ride to Sedona.

Notes: RESERVATIONS REQUIRED. Pets and service animals are not permitted in the canyon by the Navajo Nation. Weather Notice: Weather in the region can change rapidly; the flash floods that sculpted Antelope Canyon still occur. Tours will be canceled if we have advance notice of weather in the area. Occasionally we may have situations where the Antelope Canyon portion of the tour is canceled once we are en route or arrive at Antelope Canyon. If this should occur, we will provide the guests with an alternate itinerary including Wupatki and Sunset Crater. No refunds will be made if Antelope Canyon is closed; the fees for the alternate itinerary are equal to the cost of the Antelope Canyon tour.
