These FAQs are specific to this tour. If you would like to view our general FAQs CLICK HERE.

1. Is the Great Chamber Adventure an easy hike?
The Great Chamber is not a long hike, but it does require a steep uphill climb in deep sand to gain the entrance to the Chamber. There is also a small fence to step over coming out of the parking area.  You should be steady on your feet and feel confident in your ability to tackle a hard hiking effort for ~10-15 minutes. 

2. Where exactly is the Great Chamber?
The Great Chamber is in the great Kanab area, on deep sand roads a few miles off the closest paved roads. 

3. Is the Great Chamber good for photography? May I bring my tripod?
Yes! The Great Chamber is fantastic for photography. Landscape photographers will delight in early morning sun burst opportunities as the sand dune in the Great Chamber is bathed in a soft glow. Hobbyist photographers love the Chamber at all times of the day, including in the afternoon for wonderful and unique silhouette shots. For astro photographers, the Great Chamber is a cherished Milky Way location — best approached in the spring (May through July) when the Milky Way rises in such a way that it is beautifully framed in the Great Chamber’s opening. If you are interested in Great Chamber Milky Way photography, check out our premium Great Chamber Milky Way workshop with Cody York

5. Are drones allowed on this tour?
Yes, drones are allowed on this tour, but the Great Chamber is not necessarily a good place to fly a drone. It is a singular spot and there may be other people in close proximity. When operating a drone on tours, please be mindful of other guests on the tour and other hikers who may be in the area. Others seek remote locations for the solitude. Please do not fly drones close to other people and limit the amount of time the drone is in the air. Always follow instructions from your guide.

Guest Experiences with Dreamland Safari Tours

My husband, my sister and her family all went on a 2 hour tour and both appreciated and enjoyed the skilled driving of the tour guide (we never could have managed that on our own!) She was passionate about her job, and did well to educate our group, especially speaking in a manner understandable to my very young nieces and nephews (ages 6-15). We got to see the Mystic Slot canyon, get up close to a fin (rock formation), and see pictographs from ancient native tribes.

If I could give them a 6, I would. First off we scheduled late, but they accommodated our needs and set us up with a tour of the slot canyons for the next day. Steve our guide was knowledgeable about the area allowed sufficient time to take pictures without making us feeling like we were being shuttled to the next stop. I have been on some tours with other companies were you just feel rushed the whole tour, but not with Dreamland. If you are able, take a tour with Dreamland, you will not regret it.

We all thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the slot canyons. It was extremely informative and also great fun. We all enjoyed being jostled around in the 4WD going to and from the canyons. The views from the lookout were spectacular.

Very nice excursion at Slot Canyon almost private for our family of 4. The place is so nice and very easy to access event with kids. The Guide Steve is very nice and helpful. I will definitively recommend the tour to my friends, family and clients.

Just completed a truly wonderful visit to White Pocket on a photo safari with Dreamland and AZ Highways Photo Tours. Dreamland’s outfitters were outstanding. Food was almost too good and plentiful. Their service and attention to detail is outstanding. Not sure when my next trip is with them but I’m already looking forward to it!

The Great Chamber is quickly emerging as one of Kanab’s favorite off-trail destinations. The delicate geology of White Cliff topography and a windblown sand dune make this spot a favorite for photographers and explorers alike. 

Slot Canyon Photo

Come with us on an exciting 4×4 ride to this unique geologic marvel not too far from Kanab.

Both amateur and more serious photographers find it easy to capture beautiful photos here. The Great Chamber’s aspect positions it well for morning sun, and the details of the white, yellow and maroon rock strata are sure to blow your mind. 

Please note that accessing the Great Chamber requires a 20-minute hike from the trail head, much of which is steep uphill in deep sand.  Be prepared to put some effort into reaching this extraordinary location.  See wildlife, wildflowers and unparalleled geology on this half-day tour.

Photographing the Great Chamber

The Great Chamber is positioned well for early-to-mid-morning sun.  Proficient photographers may be able to capture beautiful sun burst images as the sun rises in the Great Chamber a few hours after sunrise proper.  Later in the day and in the afternoon, backlighting can serve to create classic silhouette images.  The Great Chamber has also become a sought-after prize for astrophotographers — capturing the Milky Way here requires careful planning and low-level lighting. If you are interested in astro photography in the Great Chamber, check out our Great Chamber Milky Way clinic with professional photographer Cody York.
