I would like to share my recent experience I had where I finally visited the magical and infamous Antelope Canyon, a location I have been eyeing ever since seeing the canyon in books over ten years ago.

If you intend on going to see Antelope Canyon like I did there are a few things you need to be aware of. One, you will need to book a guided tour from tour companies run by the Navajo Native Americans. Two, there are two types of tours, the standard cheaper tour where there are no tripods, bags or pretty much anything allowed or the Photography tour, which is a smaller group of around 8 to 12 people, where tripods, camera bags and pretty much anything you can carry on you are allowed, oh be aware the photography tour is double the price. Sadly the fact is, if you want to get ‘the shot’ or pretty much any shot without people in them then you will need to do the photography tour.

Booking is essential and you will need to book at least a week in advance and if you are going in peak season which is the summer months where the light is optimal for those magical light beams you will need to book months in advance.
