Green River Labyrinth Canyon 2018 Special Guided Trips

Our Special Guided Trips are for flexible folks that are traveling solo or with just a few, but still want to get out on the river.  On the trip, our guides will load and unload group gear, set-up camp, cook meals, and would enjoy your help with it all.  They will show you and help you along on hikes to pictographs, petroglyph sites, and a few small ruins, up to the Bowknot Bend and more.  There will be time for relaxing and private time, too.  *One small disclaimer: We need a minimum of 4 paddlers to sign-up to make this trip a go (or payment for 4).  Group size will not be more than 12.  River crew refer to trips like this as, a “mixed bag trip”.  For more details, click here.

Ideally, this particular calm, flat water section of the Green River, Labyrinth Canyon (in our opinion, as a rafting and canoe company), is best canoed!  A canoe allows us to bring enough creature comforts and gear with (water jugs, river toilet, tents, camp chairs, etc.) and not be cramped.  In high water, we are able to paddle up deep into narrow canyons, and in low water, the canoe does not have as much drag as other vessels.


1.) No Concerns Trip

This is the trip for folks who like to relax and enjoy the comfort and security of traveling with knowledgeable and experienced guides.  You do not need to worry about how much food to bring or where the best camp sites and hikes will be.  Thanks to your guides’ experience, you just relax and enjoy nice days of paddling on the river, slow moving quiet mornings, watching wild life on the move and the river going by, letting the days fade away sitting around a cozy campfire at the end of the day with a gorgeous starry sky above – with a good “whatever drink you may enjoy”,  in hand.  Furthermore, your guide can show you special places that most people miss.  Trip cost for 5 days is $999 per person.
