Jump on board our premium bus in Las Vegas and we will transport you to a magical place! The original Navajo name Tsé bighánílíní means "the place where water runs through rocks." Antelope Canyon's sculpted sandstone walls offer memorable photo opportunities with a walkable corridor at the bottom of the canyon floor. It was formed by flash flood waters that rushed into the cracks of the Navajo sandstone along with the power of wind erosion. With the daylight dancing through the narrow openings from the top provides multiple kinds of light reflections and colors. This amazing changing color show makes this area a popular destination for photographers and tourists. From the canyon, you will visit an area where the Colorado River makes a 280 degree turn around the Horseshoe bend shape of the rock, hence its name of Horseshoe Bend.
The most famous slot canyons on earth...

walls with a walkable corridor at the bottom of the canyon floor. It was
formed by flash flood waters that rushed into the cracks of the Navajo
sandstone along with the power of wind erosion. With the penetration of

light reflections and colors can be seen and enjoyed. This amazing color
makes this area a popular location for photographers and tourists. From

Antelope Canyon X
Located southeast of Lower Antelope
canyon by the gateway town of Page, AZ. This part of the canyon is chiseled
out by millions of years’ worth of flood erosion and impactful winds on its
sandstone, enough to sculpt out the iconic "X" shape that aptly
named the canyon. Canyon X is a relatively new scenic tour and the lesser
known cousin of Upper/Lower Antelope Canyon. Which results in fewer visitors
by comparison to the other two.
Canyon X is a nice mixture of the
characteristics of both Upper and Lower canyon, with the Upper’s feature of
pillars of light and the Lower’s steepness. Canyon X is also deeper than the
other two by comparison, and with it brings ample photo opportunities. It
truly is a great vacation spot for photography as well as in-depth
exploration of a slot canyon. In order to access the entrance, the local
Navajo guide will drive clients with a jeep there as well as back to the
customer booth when the tour concludes. So get ready to be amazed by what
Canyon X has to offer!
Horseshoe Bend Overlook
Requires a 1.5 mile roundtrip (2.4 km) walk over sand and rocks. You will reach a 1000 foot canyon as you look down upon the mighty Colorado River at the bottom of Glen Canyon.
