Upper Antelope Canyon Photography Tours

Spend 2 hours taking photographs in Upper Antelope Canyon.

You will have ample time to take photographs and explore the canyon. The best light is at mid-day, but good photos can be taken at other times depending on the month. These tours last 2.5 hours (2 hours in the canyon plus driving time). They are not recommended for children. Children must be supervised by an adult in their group for their safety. We recommend that you bring these items:

  • Snacks and drinking water (at least 1 gallon per person during the summer)
  • Hats, sunscreen, sunshades, and comfortable shoes
  • A camera with adjustable settings to take timed exposures — hand-held or point-and-shoot cameras are not recommended
  • A tripod, extra memory cards and batteries, a remote or cable release for long exposures, and a small pen light to check your settings

Important Information for Professional Photographers

Are you planning to sell your photos of Antelope Canyon, Canyon X, Cardiac Canyon, Secret Canyon, the Fins at Waterholes Canyon, or anywhere else on the Navajo reservation? If so, you must obtain a commercial permit from the Navajo Nation Film Commission.

Be sure to apply for your permit at least 2 weeks prior to your scheduled tour so you receive it in time. The permit application is available online at navajonationparks.org or you can call 928.871.6647 with questions.
