Labyrinth Canyon is a flat water float trip- no whitewater! The major hazard is weather. It can get windy, and thunderstorms can happen at any time. We will take every precaution to avoid difficult weather conditions while we are paddling. We schedule our days in a way that we can do a layover day in camp if weather conditions are not conducive to paddling.
No. Your guides will teach you everything you need to know! Be prepared for a learning curve. It may be a little difficult at first, but you will get the hang of it quickly.
Yes! We can accommodate up to 20 people for a float through Labyrinth Canyon. Length of trip can be 45 to 68 miles long, and 4-14 days long, depending on how many layover days you would like to have! Contact us to inquire.
