Walking towards the light
There are really two completely different sections of Antelope Canyon, the Upper Canyon and the Lower Canyon. Antelope Canyon is entirely on the Navajo Nation (Reservation). Interestingly, it is only about a five minute drive from Page, Arizona. Both canyons are operated through concessionaires from the Navajo Nation Parks and Recreation and each has its own family/company. Access to both canyons is strictly controlled and subject to a substantial tour/daily use fee. There are several companies in Page that also have tours of both sections of Antelope Canyon as well as other slot canyons in the area. There is a two hour limit per visit to Upper Antelope Canyon. Commercial photography within the Navajo Nation is highly regulated and subject to a use permit. After all that is said, you should be aware that the tours are well worth the charge.
