No More Photo-Only Tours At Upper Antelope Canyon

Photographer-only tours will no longer be offered at the globally recognized Upper Antelope Canyon in northern Arizona.

The Arizona Republic reports tour operators of the slot canyon, known for its red-orange sandstone walls, announced last week that photo-only tours will cease. The photographer-only tours have led to long wait times as professional shutterbugs try to get that picture-perfect shot.

Visitors with cellphones and cameras on the regular tours can still take photos. But tripods will no longer be permitted. Guided tours are the only way tourists can reach upper or lower Antelope Canyon near Page at the Utah/Arizona border.
