Run the canyons of the Colorado
Retrace 264 miles of explorer John Wesley Powell’s 1869 wild ride of discovery down the Green and Colorado rivers on an epic new trip from Grand Canyon Dories. Over two weeks, guides navigate historic wooden dories through rapids between the Technicolor walls of Desolation, Gray, Labyrinth, and Stillwater canyons, all the while building up to the churning waves and “Big Drops” of Cataract Canyon. “Inferior boats are mashed like eggshells,” wrote Powell of the rapids. Lucky for you, both dories and oarsmen are top-notch.
