This is a new tour and part of our Photograph America the Beautiful series!


This is a new tour and we have gained INCREDIBLE, EXCLUSIVE, access to a Slot Canyon that you will find breathtaking. See the info below!

Please do not hesitate to email with ANY questions you may have. We are here to help you make your dream tour a reality and will do what we can from our end to make that happen. All of the details, pricing, and scheduled itinerary are below.

*Hiking- The hikes will be easy and short for the most part. Occasionally, a longer more strenuous hike may be optional and offered. For those that choose not to do such a hike, there is no problem as there will always be two groups and sets of instructors making this a tour almost anyone can do.


EXCLUSIVE ACCESS to Slot Canyons! 

This is truly something you will not be able to do on your own and alone is worth the tour! We have gained EXCLUSIVE access and time to photograph in not one, but TWO slot canyons on private Navajo land! We will have two small groups of only 8 people in each slot with 1 1/2 hours to photograph EACH Slot Canyon per group!

Each group will be taken separately via private guided 4×4 to each slot canyon. This is approximately a 6 mile backcountry drive that is an awesome photographic opportunity itself.  At the end of the first Hour and a half, the groups will rotate and be taken to the other slot canyon via private guided 4×4 vehicle. We will also have private guides with us to help and answer any questions about this sacred land that interest you.

Upon arrival at each slot canyon, you will take an easy nature hike to the narrow and winding slot canyon. The beauty of this Slot Canyon is that you will be in the ONLY group that is there at that time. You can truly avoid the crowds of Antelope Canyon and come experience a photographer’s dream. This Navajo Nation slot canyon has been preserved for those who want to have a quieter slot canyon experience and we have been given the ability to do so privately! 


A Photographic excursion for ALL LEVELS including
Beginner through Advanced!


Due to the overwhelming interest and small group size needed, we have VERY LIMITED SPACE on this tour! As always, we expect this tour to sell out! Don’t miss it! Registration and further details below.
