can i rent a small boat and camp anywhere along lake powell and explore on my own, or do i have to camp in designated areas?
Wat is best: to fly into Flagstaff or to fly into Las Vegas, to rent a car and visit Page and the Antelope Canyons. Or are there other options that make a short trip here easier?
and I read somewhere if I know where the head of the tour is I can drive over there and park there and then hire a guide right? where exactly is the parking lot? how to get there?
also what time of the day is the best, I am planning to go in oct not too hot and not cold, last time we went to lake powell for the boat tour it was nov or so
My wife and I will be in the Page area around midday and would like to see Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe bend and Lake Powell. Is it better to pre-organise a tour of them or would it be easy enough to do ourselves in our hired car. Any suggestions of tours (if needed) would be appreciated.
We would like stay the night in the area and need to head off for Bryce early next morning. What is the best area to stay? Accomodation recommendations would be appreciated.
I'm visiting Antelope Canyon for the first time on 22st December.
This is specially for fun and take photographs. Any tips are appreciated.
Hope to meet some VTers if possible
would love to go to antelope canyon -- but i think i read somewhere that it is not much use going in winter because you don't get the light into it to take those great photos!-- we be going from gc to mon.v and thought we might go via page for the night to see them - i would love some opinions on whether it is worth the detour -- will go directly to mv otherwise. thanks
What's the deal with the snarky comment under "tip about page? I was looking for info on Lake Powell Suites! Having trouble finding a really nice review on ANY hotels near Page!
I was planning this stop on my trip but I've seen that this place is highly restricted (10 visitors/day). Should I plan it anayway and take the chance that I get the permit or not? Also if I was to get the permit how easy is it to trek to The Wave (I read that there was no indicated trail to get there). This place look fabulous and I wouldn't want to miss it but I think it would be more disapointing to plan it and not being able to get there. I hope some of you can help me.
I will be in Page next week and want to visit Antelope Canyon. I visited in 2005 want to do it all over again with the proper camera! I seem to recall my mother and I simply drove southeast along Hwy 98 and pulled off the road into a parking lot. There, we paid20 and got loaded onto a flatbed truck by the guides and toted out to the canyon proper. There were no advance reservations etc etc. Is this still the same? I see that there are numerous websites saying that you need a guide and reservations etc etc, so what would happen if we once again simply drove off the road into the parking lot? Also, I wanted to do Water Holes Canyon in the same day--too much hassle? do I need a guide or is there a place to simply drive off the road, park, pay a fee and then see the Canyon? If so, can someone give me directions and I'll map it. Thanks!
I will be travelling with my daughter in July from Las Vegas to Zion, Bryce and the North Rim. Thought of spending a day at Page. What would be the "Best" thing to do at Page?
My wife and I will be in Page, Az in August 2008. A lot of hotels are sold out and we are considering staying at either the Quality hotel, or the Super 8 motel.
We've looked at some internet reviews, but most seem to have been written a while ago.
Does anyone have recent experience of staying at either of these motels?
I will be visiting Page area in about a week from now and I would appreciate some advises from you, fellow VTs:
1. Can you recommend a local tour company for visiting the Antelope Canyon?
2. I was told that Antelope Canyon is very crowded at noon and for appreciating the full beauty of such places, Canyon X should be preferred; is it true or just yet another marketing tale?
3. For visiting the Rainbow Bridge, a reservation is essential or can it be done on spot - the same day or a day before? Any recommendations regarding the cruise and the last mile walk?
4. Any other recommendations about Page area?
Not really a question!
I've just created a webpage with my photographs of Horseshoe Bend near Page, Arizona.
I am not sure if the link will work...
Thank you so much for your very helpful responses to previous question.
Since it doesn't seem that I can do Lake Powell and Antelope Canyon in combination (we won't get to Page until 5:00 pm and leave early next morning for raft trip), should I do a boat tour on Lake Powell or the jeep tour to Antelope Canyon. Would it be cooler on the water? The temps are suppose to be over 100 when we are there.
Has anyone toured Antelope Canyon from the waterside? Lake Powell Resort offers a boat tour of Antelope Canyon. Everything I have read about the canyon, talks about walking into it. I cannot find anything about seeing it from the water.
I'd like to know whether the boat tour will be sufficient for seeing the canyon. That way, I could see Lake Powell and the canyon in one trip.
Posting it to the correct forum. Already posted in Las Vegas forum.
I am planning a trip towards memorial day with my wife and daughter. I wanted primarily to cover Las Vegas, Grand Canyon, Zion and Bryce. I am going to Zion from Grand Canyon via Page/kanab. I am going for 9 days with 3 days in Vegas.
This is a mere sight-seeing trip and no hiking/trekking.
- Is staying in Page for a day is enough to cover Rainbow Bridge and Glen Canyon.
- Is there any other park nearby that I could cover
- For Zion, which is the best place to stay?
- For Bryce Canyon, Which is the best place to stay
Sorry for plethora of questions...Would appreciate any response.
planning my trip to Page in Septmeber I want to know something about the Diner Cruise on Lake Powell. Is it worth do cruise and dine ?
Thanks to all VT members in Page, Arizona
