Visiting both upper and lower AC in 1 day?

Hi,

We arrive at Page at the evening, after visiting the Horseshoe Bend and have a full day the day after.

1. We are considering what to do and contemplating between the upper and lower parts of the canyon. Is it recommended to visit both at the same day or should we stick to one of them?

2. We would like to have a view of the lake, without taking a boat tour, is there a nice viewpoint or short walk that we can take?

Thanks!

One tour of an Antelope Canyon is sufficient. You must have a reservation for either. Lower Antelope requires the use of stairs and ladders.That may be something to consider.

Lake Powell is huge. 100 miles from the south end to the north end. You can see the very southern end from a couple of vantage points. One is from the pedestrian walkway in front of the dam. You can also view it from Wahweap Overlook just beyond the dam. Or drive down to Wahweap marina.

You may be interested in taking a tour of Glen Canyon dam.

One AC tour is sufficient. Best view of the lake from the southern end is at Wahweep Overlook.

We went through the Lower Canyon and were absolutely entranced. Prior to going into the Lower canyon, we had in mind that we might also tour the Upper canyon. But as much as we loved the Lower canyon, we felt satisfied and decided against touring the Upper one. We went over to the dam and took the tour. We really enjoyed it. Pretty good view of the lake from the dam, too.

Hi Yoav - good call on touring one section of Antelope Canyon. FYI, another way to see a lot of Lake Powell without spending a lot of time on the water is to fly over it. Airplane and helicopter flights depart daily from the Page Municipal Airport, usually in the morning, and last around 25-30 minutes. antelopecanyon.az/horseshoe-bend-lake-powell…
