Originally little more than a simple camp constructed to house workers who built a nearby dam on the Colorado River, Page is now a popular stop for travelers preparing a trip to Arizona's canyon country.
Go for a jaunt from Page to Grand Canyon National Park to see Little Colorado River Gorge about 1h 30 min away. Spend the 29th (Sat) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Spend the 2nd (Mon) behind the viewfinder with an inspiring photography tour. Next up on the itinerary: explore the stunning scenery at Antelope Canyon and take some stellar pictures from Horseshoe Bend.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Page fast, fun, and easy.

Toronto, Canada to Page is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and car; or drive. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Mountain Standard Time (MST) is minus 2 hours.
