Oar-Powered Raft Trips

13 Day Full Canyon Oar

The 13-day oar-powered Grand Canyon raft trip is one of our longest, and offers the most time for exploring, hiking and relaxing within the Canyon. The 13-day starts at Lees Ferry and continues whitewater rafting 225 miles of the Colorado River to Diamond Creek. The 13-day is great for those who wish to connect with the Canyon at a more leisurely pace, yet still experience the vastness of the Canyon. With our optional round-trip transportation, this is a wonderful and convenient Grand Canyon vacation!
