Green River Labyrinth Canyon 2017 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.
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.

If you have to cancel within 30 days of your trip, we will run your card for 50% of your booked reservation total. If you cancel within 14 days of trip or are a “no show”, we will run the card for the whole amount of the reservation. All reservation fees are due in full by the day of the trip.
Again, over the years of booking trips, we have to say that we know the river. But, every trip is different. The time of season, water levels, and much more, make the river fun all of the time! Give us a call and we will be happy to see what kind of trip we can create for you!
- It is our policy to reserve the right to cancel any trip at the last minute due to extreme and unsafe conditions such as high water (over 35,000 c.f.s.), fast-moving water, low water, cold, or high winds. Should this occur, no money will be exchanged. If conditions allow, we can/will postpone for a few hours or to the next day.
