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.
Start off your visit on the 2nd (Sun): get interesting insight from Tours, explore the stunning scenery at Antelope Canyon, then hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour, and finally have fun at Gunfighter Canyon. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 3rd (Mon): let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, explore and take pictures at Horseshoe Bend, and then explore the activities along Lake Powell.

For traveler tips, maps, and other tourist information, read our Page trip planner .
