The Grand Canyon is one of the biggest canyons in the world. It is located in northern Arizona and measures 446 kilometres long, nearly 30 kilometres wide and over a kilometre and a half deep. Grand Canyon National Park encompasses much of the Grand Canyon and it is divided into two main sections, the North Rim and South Rim, each with their own visitor center, scenic drives, viewpoints and hiking trails.
Lower Antelope Canyon
Northern Arizona is known for its rugged desert landscape which features many iconic canyons, including Antelope Canyon. This slot canyon was formed over time when water from flash flooding or heavy rains carved its way through the Navajo sandstone cliffs, creating narrow passageways and ripples and wave-like patterns in the rocks.
Arizona is home to one of the largest canyons in the world. Carved millions of years ago from the force of the Colorado River, it is 446km long, 29km wide and at its deepest is 1829 m from rim to the river. It truly is a sight to behold. But there are a variety of other attractions in Arizona's red rock landscape and desert climate that are worth exploring as well.
