Horseshoe Bend To Antelope Canyon - Get All The Details For The Tour Of Your Life

80Shares
79.7KViews

Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend are two outstanding natural marvels in Arizona that you must see if you are visiting the state.

We've always encouraged our readers to visit Antelope Canyon or Horseshoe Bend, but one of the most often asked questions is if it's possible to combine the two in a single day trip. We'll get back to you right away with the solution. Yes, it's conceivable.

In this post, we'll attempt to provide you with all of the information you'll need to plan your own visit to the two sites, and then we'll explain in full a trip to Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend that will enable you to have a more leisurely visit to the two sites.

Antelope Canyon is noted for its thin rock walls that have been polished and formed by water and wind, as well as the shifting hues generated by the sun's rays passing through.

It is the Southwest's most well-known and frequented slot canyon. It is separated into three sections: Upper Antelope Canyon, Lower Antelope Canyon, and Antelope Canyon X, and it may only be visited on a guided trip, unlike most other nature parks. In other words, you will not be able to visit it at your leisure.

The Colorado River's "construction" at Horseshoe Bend is breathtaking. It is a horseshoe-shaped curve in the river.

The river's calm waters run around the bend, and the landscape seems to have been painted by a skilled artist.

Horseshoe Bend is free to see, but you must pay a parking charge, as we previously said in another post.

You'll travel a short distance from the parking area to a stunning vista (although bear in mind that you'll be walking in the heat).

Although Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend are both on the Navajo Nation, they are not in the same park, therefore a trip to Antelope Canyon purchased through one of the Navajo tourism firms in Page will not include Horseshoe Bend.

How To Visit Horseshoe Bend And Antelope Canyon Independently

So, how can you squeeze in both attractions in a short amount of time? Would you risk missing out on anything if you planned a day trip to Page and wanted to see Lake Powell as well? If you follow these guidelines, the answer is no.

First and foremost, make a reservation for the Antelope Canyon trip! Many people come in Page unaware that they can only visit if they take a tour.

As a result, people try to beat the clock by traveling from agency to agency in the hopes of getting on a waiting list.

You can better arrange your day and incorporate Horseshoe Bend in your schedule if you purchase your trip in advance.

  • You will not be allowed to visit Antelope on your own, as we previously said. The majority of Upper Antelope Canyon trips begin in Page, while Lower Antelope Canyon tours begin near the slot canyon proper. In either scenario, you'll park your vehicle near the agency and pick it up after the tour (which lasts around 1 hour and 40 minutes in the first case and 1 hour in the second case).
  • How about a trip to Horseshoe Bend? Is it a lengthy journey to get there? What is the distance between Horseshoe Bend and Antelope Canyon? You'll just have to go 4.3 miles on Highway 89 from Page, which will take you around 10 minutes by automobile. After there, you'll have to walk for 20 minutes before you can see Horseshoe Bend. Despite the fact that it might be packed, there is no need to make reservations or wait in line; just choose the ideal time to arrive. Parking is now a paid service as of 2019.

Finally, you can see that combining an Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend trip is not difficult in terms of time.

On the contrary, if you plan ahead, you may go to both in the morning and then spend the afternoon exploring other areas like Marble Canyon, Lake Powell, or even Glen Canyon.

Tours From Page, Las Vegas Or Flagstaff

What if you wanted to explore these two marvels without having to worry about sticking to a rigid timetable or pre-booking trips with Navajo travel agencies?

If that's the case, we'd like to recommend this interesting tour that departs from either Las Vegas or Flagstaff, making it ideal for anyone planning to visit the attractions in the Page area before or after visiting the Grand Canyon, which is close by (especially Flagstaff, which is the best city to stop in when visiting this famous canyon in Arizona).

Traveling between Flagstaff and Antelope Canyon is quite typical on West Coast road trip itineraries, so this package could be worth considering.

After receiving (optional) pick-up from your hotel in Las Vegas or Flagstaff, you will be transferred to Page, where a Navajo guide will be waiting to show you around the magnificent Antelope Canyon.

Bring your cameras because your guide will offer you ideas on how to snap the greatest shots of the slot canyon as he or she explains the geological characteristics and history of the canyon.

It's time to leave Antelope Canyon and proceed to Horseshoe Bend! You'll return to your car and be escorted by a guide up a short route that leads to a breathtaking panoramic vista of Horseshoe Bend.

After being inspired by the natural beauty of these areas, you will be brought back to your accommodation at the conclusion of the day (optional).

  • Duration: 9-16 hours
  • What’s included: All expenses (tickets, taxes); tour by a professional guide; pick-up and drop-off service (optional)
  • Price: Starting at $187
  • Advantages: No need to booking your own tour of Antelope Canyon; long duration of the visit; expert guide

People Also Ask

Is Horseshoe Bend And Antelope Canyon The Same?

Horseshoe Bend is a must-see if you're in the region, and it's just 5 miles from Antelope Canyon.

It is free to visit, and the trip to the viewpoint is only.75 mile. The Colorado River adopts a horseshoe shape as it meanders around Horseshoe Bend.

Can You Do Antelope Canyon And Monument Valley In One Day?

If you only have one day to see Antelope Canyon and Monument Valley, we recommend taking an Antelope Canyon tour in the middle of the day and arriving in Monument Valley for dawn or sunset, as these are the greatest times of day to view each location.

How Many Days Do You Need In Antelope Canyon?

You may now visit either Lower or Upper Antelope Canyon, depending on which canyon you visited on day one.

Please bear in mind that you are welcome to visit for only one day. Staying two days, on the other hand, is an experience you'll enjoy: it's more relaxing, there's more to see, and it's really unique to see both Upper and Lower.

What Makes Antelope Canyon Surreal?

Lower Antelope Canyon is, of course, a canyon, which means it was carved out of the desert's sandstone by a torrent of water, resulting in the bizarre patterns we see today. You're in the midst of the desert, and there's no water to be found most days.

Is Horseshoe Bend Worth Seeing?

Yes, if you like stunning scenery and distinct terrain. Maybe it's not for you if you don't like crowds or trekking. Regardless, it is one of America's most well-known landmarks and a must-see on every Southwest USA road trip.

Horseshoe Bend is a must-see if you're in the region, and it's just 5 miles from Antelope Canyon. It is free to visit, and the trip to the viewpoint is only 75 mile.

The Colorado River adopts a horseshoe shape as it meanders around Horseshoe Bend. It's a terrific approach to watch the river since it's just 7 miles upstream from the Grand Canyon's start.

It's also a good opportunity to grab a selfie with the Colorado River, which is difficult to achieve from the South Rim.
