Antelope canyon – the next stop on the roadtrip

Close to Page in Arizona you’ll find antelope canyon! I didn’t do much research before going, I usually would. It’s protected land of the natives, which means gaining access into the canyon isn’t so straight forward as just turning up! 

You need to pre book a time slot to be taking into the canyon by a tour guide. Lucky we arrived early and there was space for us. if we had been a big group I think we might have been turned away.

The tour starts by getting into open top jeeps for a short drive across desert to the entrance of the canyon, it was great fun! It’s bumpy, you get thrown around a bit and there is sand flying everywhere from around six jeeps all driving at the same time. Wearing sunglasses is good to help stop the dust/sand getting into your eyes.

Hopping out the jeep your tour into the canyon starts. Our guide named Bear, showed us through the canyon. He was full of information, history and pointed out a lot of interesting features. Inside it’s cold, not much sun gets through the top. My favourite part was looking up at the ‘heart’ this is where the canyon has formed into the shape of a heart, it’s very pretty and colourful. The tour was around 20 minutes long when reaching the end of the canyon you can then walk back through at your own pace without a tour guide. It was nice to have a chance to look around for your self, take photographs etc.

The heart ❣
