Millions of years of erosion have sculpted Arizona’s most pristine and picturesque slot canyon located in Page, Arizona. Antelope Canyon is located within the Navajo Nation and a guided tour is required to enjoy and explore the slot canyons. The area is made up of two distinct canyons: Upper Antelope Canyon and Lower Antelope Canyon. The slot canyons are a photographer’s dream and professional photographers should try to visit March-October for the best sunlight and canyon illumination.
