Formed over millenia by water and sand to produce a narrow, deep and extremely colorful subterranean wonderland. This water sculpted sandstone labyrinth is a natural cathedral in the desert, taking your breath away with its majesty and beauty. Made up of two individual canyons, Upper Antelope and Lower Antelope, both offering unique experiences you're sure to enjoy. Due to it extreme popularity, both Antelope Canyons are no longer available for photo tours or weddings.
Fortunately, there are other slot canyon wedding options in the Page - Lake Powell area.
The Horseshoe is about 1 mile wide with the north half belonging to National Park Service and the south half which is on the Navajo Nation land. Starting in 2017, the Navajo family who owns the Horseshoe Bend land south of NPS partnered with a guide company to make available private 4 X 4 tours down to the rim. This is a wonderful opportunity to have a private setting to enjoy your ceremony. Also the drive takes you almost to the rim so no hiking through deep sand is required.

There are no services available but photo opportunities abound and the trail up the Paria River starts at the ranch.

The hike into the Colorado River through Cathedral Canyon is for experts only including a few exposed down climbs with no rigging but for those truly wanting an extreme wedding adventure the views at the river and the solitude makes the difficult journey well worth it.
