Lower Antelope Canyon with Kids

Lower Antelope Canyon with Kids

Written by

Lower Antelope Canyon is one of the most spectacular places we have visited. We explored this hidden gem in northern Arizona a couple of weeks ago and it has left such a lasting impression. The canyon was named for the herds of pronghorn antelope that once roamed the area many years ago. Located in the Native American Indians land of the Navajo Nation, its Navajo name is Hasdestwazi, or “spiral rock arches” and you’ll see just how magical it is on this photographic journey with us.

The canyons can only be toured with a guide unless you do the self-guided photography tour. There is an upper and lower Antelope Canyon but we decided to tour the lower one based on online reviews and made it to the 3PM tour. Reservations are not needed. Visitors can simply walk up and tours are given every 20 minutes. Don’t expect any modern facilities here. It was pretty much a shack, a dirt parking lot and portable toilets.
