Horseshoe Bend Slot Canyon (Secret Canyon) is a photographer and video friendly experience that includes an off road driving tour and exclusive access to private side of Horseshoe Bed, eliminating the 1.5 mile walk.
Daily departures from Las Vegas for a semi-private slot canyon and Horseshoe Bend tour experience. The trip between Las Vegas and Page, Arizona, across southern Utah will be shared with other guests on a luxury motor coach. When you arrive in Page, the Semi-Private, small group experience begins. Horseshoe Bend Slot Canyon offers amazing photo and video 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 power of wind erosion. With the penetration of daylight through the narrow opening from the top different kinds of light reflections and colors can be seen and enjoyed. This amazing color makes this area a popular location for photographers and tourists. From the canyon, we visit an area where the Colorado River made a 280 degree turn around the Horseshoe Bend shape of rock.
Your small group tour is given by the Navajo family who originally owned the land that is now the city of Page,
and currently owns the land that contains the private side of Horseshoe Bend and the Horseshoe Bend Slot Canyon.
