The scenic drive from Las Vegas to the world-famous Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend offers you memorable views of the Virgin River Gorge and the Escalante/Grand Staircase National Monument and 80-mile views across the Colorado Plateau.
While in Page, Arizona, you will also have views of Lake Powell and the Glen Canyon Dam from the tour coach. Antelope Canyon offers marvelous photo opportunities between sculpted sandstone walls with a walkable corridor at the bottom of the canyon floor. It was formed by flash flood waters that rushed into the cracks of the Navajo sandstone along with the strength of wind erosion. With the penetration of daylight through the narrow opening of the top, you will see and enjoy a myriad of light reflections. This color makes this area a favorite location for photographers and tourists.
From the canyon, you can visit an area where the Colorado River made a 280 degree turn around the horseshoe-shaped rock formation which gives the location its name. You can walk 1.5 miles round-trip to reach an overlook that is 1000 feet above the curve of the clear, green Colorado River.
